Q.

How do I find a cheap solicitor to purchase a house?

A.

This catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional fees are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions that unknowing homeowners have not reviewed Your conveyancing quote should, in addition, define any disbursements. Additional fees listed in the solicitor's terms ought to be reasonable and only apply in cases where the conveyancer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

For what reason does Aldershot purchase conveyancing be so drawn out? Isn't it a simple matter of filing paperwork?

A.

Conveyancing could be exposed to significant delays even in the best of circumstances. The reasons can sometimes be out of a solicitor's hands, Homeward Legal, however, endeavour to lessen their effect, if it is possible to do so, by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible. Delays may include problems with arranging a mortgage.

Q.

How early is it wise to instruct a conveyancer to act on our purchase?

A.

Whether buying or selling, the sooner you instruct a conveyancing firm, the better. Some groups suggest waiting before instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.

Q.

Of the main Aldershot mortgage lenders, which firms are on your panel?

A.

Q.

The property seller has added unsuitable removal of chimney stacks on the house in Aldershot which might infringe conservation area criteria

A.

Your instructed conveyancing solicitor will carry out searches identify whether the property is inside a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have the appropriate permission.

Q.

Is there anything I can do to bypass paying out for stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty must be paid on residential property valued at over £125,000. Homeward Legal do not recommend any stamp duty reduction scheme, as such schemes are costly and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed meaning that the full stamp duty amount will then be due.

Q.

Are Land Registry office copies fees or disbursements?

A.

Unscrupulous firms hide additional costs as disbursements. It may not be clear whether a cost is a fee or not, and if it should be included. These costs are disbursements not fees, and is passed on to the buyer at cost.

Q.

The Aldershot residence being bought is on a ex-industrial use land. Is the topsoil likely to remain contaminated?

A.

There are legislative rules imposed in order to limit soil contamination. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as chlorine.
