Q.

I need to find a cheap solicitor for purchasing a residence. because we are on a limited budget.

A.

Many solicitors claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes, however extra costs can inflate your solicitor's invoice. A quote must also state any disbursements.Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Is there something I can do to avoid paying out for stamp duty on a residential property?

A.

Stamp duty is payable on homes over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty reduction must be treated with caution, as such schemes are often uneconomical and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself.

Q.

How long on average should I expect it to take our assigned lawyer to exchange contracts the legal process for a detached fifties property?

Completion can take anywhere between a month and 12 weeks dependent on any number of factors such as the efficiency of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or the communication, with managing agents. Our chosen property solicitors are extremely results-focused completing as quickly as we possibly can.

Q.

Will you need to get a chancel search? I am buying in Barkingside.

A.

Chancel repair can require some Barkingside home owners to pay for maintenance of a church in the area. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. Your conveyancing solicitor can provide more details. Churches in Barkingside include Holy Trinity -, St Cedd, St George and St Laurence.

Q.

If we are intending to buy near Barkingside, in the parish of Stoke Newington, do we need a chancel search?

The lawyer may suggest a chancel search, whichever parish where the property being bought is located. In older areas of Barkingside, chancel repair may be apportioned on current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.
