Q.

What are the best rates for conveyancing for a £70,000 property?

A.

Various firms offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Extra charges included in terms of engagement should be clearly defined. They be applicable if your conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a residential mid-terrace Band G property in Bedmond?

A.

The relevant band should in most cases be set out within the conveyancer's title report along with the local authority. Correct charges for residents of Bedmond are published at the St Albans council site. As of 23 February 2013 rates are:

  • Band A - £981.00
  • Band B - £1,145.00
  • Band C - £1,309.00
  • Band D - £1,472.00
  • Band E - £1,799.00
  • Band F - £2,126.00
  • Band G - £2,454.00
  • Band H - £2,944.00

Q.

How is stamp duty calculated and how much do we need to budget for a £1055000 residential property?

A.

The Stamp Duty which will be owed is based on the purchase price of the property. For a property valued at £1055000, SDLT will be £52750.

Q.

Does the Bedmond solicitor get any property conveyancing searches on the Hertfordshire Regency end-of-terrace house I am buying?

A.

The regular procedure will be to get these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search and Environment Search, and possibly specific searches such as Commons Registration (CON290).

Q.

We are on a deadline and need arrange fast conveyancing, how can we speed things up?

A.

As is widely reported, fast Bedmond conveyancing is key to instruct a proactive property lawyer. That said, there are several tasks you, as the buyer, can do to accelerate the legal work, such as, requesting regular updates from your property lawyer and keep the pressure on, answering any queries raised by the property lawyer as soon as possible and organising your finances, including arranging a mortgage.

Q.

Could the conveyancing hide any extra costs?

A.

Homeward Legal's solicitors never hide any additional charges for your conveyancing legal work. Some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote. The final bill you receive may be much more.

Q.

Which lender panels in Bedmond are you a member of?

A.

We are able to work with the majority of lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Bedmond, like Mortgage Store, 23a St. Peters St, St. Albans, AL1 3DP, Charleston Financial Services, Charleston House/13 High St, Hemel Hempstead, HP1 3AA, and Berkeley Private Finance Ltd, Moorlands/The Common, Redbourn, St. Albans, AL3 7NJ.

Q.

How do I protect my offer from gazumping?

A.

Gazumping happens when a property seller accepts an offer, only to reject it in favour of a better offer. There is almost always a chance of gazumping. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct your conveyancing solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer.
