Q.

I am trying to find a cheap Ashton In Makerfield solicitor for purchasing a property. What should I check?

A.

This point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional fees will be included in the terms. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Can you advise how to circumvent paying stamp duty tax?

A.

We firmly advise against any form of stamp duty scheme, as such schemes are costly and very risky. There have been a small number of government initiatives, such as for first-time buyers.

Q.

Has soil in Ashton In Makerfield been contaminated by rubidium?

A.

Some metal contamination may have occurred throughout Ashton In Makerfield, but where substances causing significant pollution of surface waters or groundwater are found the land will be defined as 'contaminated'. Metal contamination of top-soil in Ashton In Makerfield is more likely to occur near ex-industrial sites or ex-landfills. Data on other contaminants, like groundwater contamination, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Please explain why conveyancing takes so long?

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase a home can take more time even where there is no chain. The reasons are on occasion unfortunately beyond a solicitor's power. Homeward Legal endeavour to minimise their cost whenever it is feasible. Reasons for delay may include problems with arranging a mortgage.

Q.

We are buying a £1137000 residential property in Ashton In Makerfield. How is stamp duty rates calculated?

A.

The Stamp Duty you pay will depend on several factors, including the purchase price. On a £1137000 home, stamp duty will be £56850.

Q.

We need to complete this purchase as soon as possible, how do we guarantee a fast conveyancing transaction?

A.

Crucial to buying faster is to instruct a experienced solicitor. Consider the following when selecting:

  • What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase.
  • Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?
  • How soon will they order searches?

Q.

Is a Local Authority search a fee or a disbursement?

A.

Unscrupulous firms may attempt to pass off additional costs as disbursements. It may not be obvious if a cost is a fee or disbursement, and whether it should be included. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, meaning the solicitor passes on the charge at cost.
