Q.

Please confirm the cheapest fee for a £178,000 property? I am looking for low cost conveyancing.

A.

Many home owners seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many conveyancers claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. Often additional costs may be added into the small print. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Do we need a house survey for our house purchase?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors firmly suggest that you instruct a property surveyor if buying in Ashtead. A wide range of defects will impact a property, for example blocked drains. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

What causes purchase conveyancing legal work to go on for so long?

The conveyancing process may be drawn out. Homeward Legal appreciate how difficult it can be to face these and endeavour to curtail the impact of these delays whenever we can do so by proactively handling all enquiries. Delays can include the length of time it takes for the managing agent or landlord to respond to queries.

Q.

Which mortgage lenders in Ashtead do you work with?

A.

Most lenders in Ashtead are on our solicitors' panels. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Ashtead include Independent Bureau, 1 Effingham Rd, Reigate, RH2 7JN, Hawke Financial Services LLP, 3 Chipstead Valley Rd, Coulsdon, CR5 2RB, and Mortgage Select, Po Box 25, Banstead, SM7 2WA.

Q.

I am going to a property auction and will need to arrange fast conveyancing, how could we accelerate our move?

A.

Many buyers will, correctly, argue that finding a proactive lawyer is essential to moving faster. There are numerous things you can do, such as, calling or emailing the lawyer, and chase them if you suspect any delays, quickly answering your lawyer's questions and organising your finances.

Q.

Is it dangerous to avoid paying out for stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

We firmly advise against any stamp duty avoidance. These schemes are costly and often likely to fail.

Q.

It seems that cadmium soil contamination may be an issue in Ashtead. Please advise.

A.

Ashtead's local area has a history of contamination from industrial or agricultural, like much of the UK. Data on many contaminants, such as groundwater contaminants like hydrocarbons, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

I have requested a quote from you. Will we have to pay any extra fees?

A.

It is unfortunate that it is common practice for some firms to hide fees in small print. Homeward Legal will not charge any hidden extra costs. Know that some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. The final bill you receive may be much more.
