Q.

How do I find affordable conveyancing?

A.

Numerous solicitors purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any disbursements must also be stated on the conveyancing quote. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We are purchasing in Banstead. Are there any conservation areas in the area?

A.

With over eight thousand affected areas in England, the regions in or near Banstead will include a range of areas of conservation. The local authority will offer more information about local areas of conservation, and the lawyer handling your purchase address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area.

Q.

Do we need to get a local property surveyor to investigate the property purchase?

A.

We suggest that you book a building survey. There are a range of concerns that can negatively affect a property. These include corrosion of pipework. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

When buying a period maisonette in the boundary of conservation area in Banstead, how do we find more data in regards to the state of repair of the Banstead conservation area?

English Heritage, a government body, have assembled a list of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas. Conservation areas are created by the local authority (Reigate and Banstead) who administer things like the upkeep of public spaces to the halting of advertising hoardings.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing process to buy a £950,000 house, what do we need to organise?

A.

As is widely reported, a faster move is key is to employing a proactive property lawyer. You should consider:

  • Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?
  • Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
  • Will they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?

Q.

Handling the legal work by bypassing a Banstead conveyancing solicitor looks to be possible as a buyer of a maisonette , but would it be actually be reasonable ?

A.

There are no arguments at all why you cant handle the conveyancing unaided. That said, a property solicitor takes care of a large array of exercises including applying for and interpreting office copies or checking for any restrictive covenants which need a qualified professional. Additionally solicitors are required by the Law Society to carry relevant insurance cover that ultimately protects you from any professional negligence made by the lawyer.

Q.

Can we hold off paying out for SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty is due on homes priced at over £125,000. We strongly advise against any stamp duty scheme. Such schemes are highly expensive and unreliable.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if we plan to buy in the parish of Kew with Petersham, near Banstead?

A.

A Banstead conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. For property in the parish of Kew with Petersham, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
