Q.

I need a low cost conveyancing quote in Alton. What do I need to check for?

A.

Confusion over this matter catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra costs will be included in the terms. Busy, stressed homeowners ignore these terms at their peril. Additional costs which are listed in terms of engagement should be reasonable and only apply to matters if your conveyancer is required to complete unexpected extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

We plan to complete on around 28th February. What will be worked out for stamp duty?

A.

Stamp Duty is calculated with reference to the house or flat's price. On a £51000 property, stamp duty will be £0 (correct March 2013).

Q.

Should I get a Homebuyer Report for the house purchase in Alton?

A.

Homeward Legal strongly advise that purchasers in Alton arrange an inspection. It is a fact that there are many problems that have a negative impact on a property, which will not be covered by the legal work, including poor ventilation.

Q.

We are buying a renovated flat in a conservation area in Alton, where does one find information concerning the state of repair of the area?

A.

Local Alton conservation areas are set up by the local authority (East Hampshire) who govern things like paths to the avoidance of poorly maintained roads. English Heritage, a government body, administer a list of the state of conservation areas.

Q.

We must to complete on the sale of our freehold flat in a short time frame, are you fast home moving solicitors in Alton ?

A.

Homeward Legal takes a highly active approach to completing the conveyancing process as quickly as possible. Our lawyers method is to employ the latest e conveyancing systems . Critically we give you a lawyer trained to communicate from the beginning to the end of the buyer and seller property chain .

Q.

Halifax will be our mortgage lender, what do we need to consider?

A.

Recently, a number of lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel. For purchasers, this can result in significantly higher conveyancing costs. We can act for most lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay your lender's legal costs.

Q.

May the fees for our conveyancing include any hidden costs?

A.

No. We do not charge any hidden costs to buy or sell a home.

Q.

Does Alton include any designated conservation areas?

A.

Conservation areas pinpoint streets and neighbourhoods recorded as being of architectural or historic interest. Living in a conservation area can mean an increase in local property values, but the restrictions adds to upkeep costs. A solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.
