Q.

How do we find fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

Numerous firms promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often additional costs are often hiding in the terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers, eager to get underway. Additional fees ought to be reasonable and be applied only where your solicitor must complete unanticipated additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

I have requested a quote from you. Are there any hidden fees?

A.

No. We never hide any hidden extra costs. While comparing quotes, be aware that some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.

Q.

Please advise how to get out of paying for stamp duty tax?

A.

We firmly advise against any form of stamp duty mitigation scheme. These schemes are expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed meaning that the full stamp duty amount, interest and

additional fines will be imposed. There have been a range of legitimate initiatives, however, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers.

Q.

Which particular property searches conveyancing searches will my Amersham lawyer get on a Amersham flat?

A.

The regular legal procedure will be to get Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environment Search, and possibly specific local Amersham searches for instance Commons Search.

Q.

Regarding the Met Office warning of more intense rainfall in the future we are thinking that environmental searches might not be detailed enough?

A.

Environmental searches carried out by a Amersham property lawyer will also include a more thorough Landmark flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

If you remain still anxious consider contacting a future neighbour.

Q.

For a residence valued at £997k. What will be determined for stamp duty tax?

A.

Stamp Duty will depend on the value of the house. Stamp duty will be £39880 on a £997k property (information correct 01/01/2013).

Q.

Which Amersham lender panels are you on?

A.

Homeward Legal work in conjunction with most lenders registered with the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Amersham, such as Rooftop, 10 Oldfield Clo, Amersham, HP6 6SU. Your solicitor will be able to carry out any relevant lender-imposed searches or checks.

Q.

How might the conveyancing work have so many delays?

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase a home can suffer all manner of setbacks, Homeward Legal, however, understand how unnecessarily stressful these delays can be and work hard to reduce the consequences of these delays wherever a difference can be made. Common delays may include waiting for a mortgage offer.
