Ascot conveyancing can be delayed for many reasons. Sometimes, these delays are beyond a solicitor's influence, we, however, work hard to reduce their impact whenever feasible by driving the transaction forward.

Q.

Please confirm how to get out of paying out for stamp duty on the home?

A.

Stamp duty reduction is not recommended. These schemes are highly expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed imposing fines and reviewing all your revenue matters. There have been a range of official schemes, such as for first-time buyers. Your solicitor will advise as to your eligibility.

Q.

Derbyshire Home Loans is going to be our lender, is there anything I need to check?

A.

Buyers should be aware that, over the last two years, some lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating higher legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal, though, are able to act for all major UK mortgage lenders, ensuring that an additional property lawyer will not be required to act for your lender.
