Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £248k property?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many conveyancers promote so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs can inflate the solicitor's invoice. Additional charges needs to be reasonable and clear. They come into force only if your lawyer is required to complete extra work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Would ordering a house survey be advisable when buying a property, irrespective of its condition?

A.

We strongly advise that purchasers book a property survey. Buyers should be aware that there are a wide range of defects which have a negative impact on a property, which a conveyancing solicitor will not report on. These include subsidence.

Q.

My partner and I are interested in purchasing in Avery Hill. Can I check that the building is in a conservation area?

The regions in or near Avery Hill include a range of conservation areas. The advantages of these restrictions include protection for trees and other flora, but they can make repairs more costly or time-consuming. Your conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise further.

Q.

Does homewardlegal.co.uk look after the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Avery Hill?

A.

Our company is familiar with residential property auction protocols. Conventionally difficult to value lots such as investment properties, are listed at property auctions and these require extended inquiries. Conveyancers therefore encourage auction buyers to instruct their chosen solicitor well before the property auction date for a full investigation of the auction legal papers. Post auction your appointed lawyer is utterly focused on finishing the purchase in the usual 28 days as usually required .

Q.

What is gazumping?

A.

This arises when a property seller approves a buyer's offer and then dismisses it, selecting instead a higher offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a chance of being gazumped. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a proactive solicitor early.

Q.

What length of time does it take the solicitor to accomplish all of the legal work for the lower floor of fifties home we are thinking of buying?

A.

Completion can take anywhere from one month to 12 weeks dependent on various things, like the efficiency of the sellers lawyer, or the speed of the local authority.

Homeward Legal's property lawyers are focused on communication, with the aim of completing the legal process as rapidly as possible.

Q.

Can you confirm how to hold off paying for HMRC stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty mitigation must be treated with caution by purchasers in Avery Hill, as such schemes are often uneconomical and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later imposing penalties and investigating all your tax matters.

Q.

I am purchasing a £1139000, how is stamp duty tax determined?

A.

The SDLT owed is based on the house or flat's value. For a home valued at £1139000, the rate will be £56950.*
