Q.

Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £680k property? We are looking for an affordable conveyancing quote.

A.

This matter catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors claim to offer cheap conveyancing, but extra fees may inflate the final bill.

Q.

Would it be insensible to enact the conveyancing myself on my own.

A.

Technically there is no argument at all why you shouldn't undertake the your own conveyancing without assistance. However, a conveyancing solicitor takes care of a significant number of tasks e.g. checking redemption statements and locating planning docs some of which require adequate training.

Q.

Which factors help with ensuring a fast exchange and completion?

A.

Importantly, finding a proactive conveyancing solicitor is crucial to buying faster. When finding a conveyancing solicitor, : Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication? Will they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis? Was there a delay delivering a quote?

Q.

What average time will it take my conveyancing solicitor to complete all of the conveyancing formalities on the lower floor of sixties property?

Albany Park and the surrounding region has a legacy of chemical contamination. Metal contamination of topsoil in Albany Park is more likely to occur near former industrial sites. Data on other contaminants, like groundwater contamination, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

What are our options if we acquire a Albany Park home in a Bexley planning authority conservation area ?

Part of the conveyancing process involves the application for searches of Bexley local authority to check conservation area status and the required consent for any developments. .

Q.

Can we avoid paying for SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty usually must be paid for homes priced at over one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. Stamp duty avoidance should be treated with extreme caution. These schemes are expensive and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself.

Q.

How do we determine more information about the conservation areas in Albany Park?

A.

Conservation area concerns for example paths or neglected buildings are dealt with by the local authority (Bexley).
