Q.

How do we get a cheap solicitor to sell a share of freehold house?

A.

Various conveyancers offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra charges may inflate the final invoice. The quote should also clearly state costs to be paid to third parties, including search providers, (disbursments).Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Will I need to get a chancel search? We are purchasing a flat conversion in Beacontree Heath.

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. The solicitor handling your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate.

Q.

Can you recommend how to hold off paying for SDLT rates?

A.

We firmly advise against any form of stamp duty mitigation, as such schemes are expensive and often likely to fail. There have been a range of legitimate initiatives, however, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers.

Q.

Does Homeward Legal look after the conveyancing of auction properties in Beacontree Heath?

A.

Our firm is very competent with auction buyers and sellers. Frequently unusually constructed lots for example Sold with defective legal titles, are bought at auction which tend to necessitate greater legwork. Conveyancers therefore strongly advocate that purchasers instruct a good conveyancing firm prior to the actual auction to give enough time for a thorough investigation.

Post auction day arrives the lawyer will be able to concentrate on briskly finishing all of the legal work inside the reduced time frame as conventionally required .

Q.

Please tell us why sale conveyancing work takes such a long time?

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase property will occasionally be lengthy for many reasons. Some delays are out of a solicitor's hands. Homeward Legal aim to diminish the effect of these delays by chasing for prompt responses. Common delays include slow solicitors acting for the other side.

Q.

We are buying a Beacontree Heath property with Irish Permanent, what do I need to consider?

A.

In some cases, lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, resulting in increased legal costs for buyers in cases where the solicitor cannot act for their lender, and another must also be instructed. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of the vast majority of mortgage lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay any additional legal fees to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

How do we calculate SDLT, and what should we budget for a £847000 Beacontree Heath property?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax will depend on the property's value. On a £847000 home, stamp duty will be £33880.*

Q.

The estate agent we are using in Arley has offered a solicitors firm. Will it be faster to instruct them?

A.

If you choose a solicitor referred through this route, you may have the benefit of the agent's willingness to persuade a slow solicitor to work faster, however, such referrals should be compared against alternatives, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.
