Bellingham area information

Q.

Are additional fees applied? I am looking for fixed rate conveyancing.

A.

Many conveyancers claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional charges may be added into the terms of engagement. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

How do you work out stamp duty and how much will it be on a £395000 property?

A.

The Stamp Duty you must pay depends on the value of the house or flat. Stamp duty will be £11850 on a £395000 Bellingham home.*

*Accurate as of May 2012

Q.

Will you need a chancel search? I am buying on the same street as a 1700s priory in Bellingham.

A.

Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Bellingham property likely to be affected. A chancel search

addresses if such a liability exists. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further. Church properties in the area include St Cuthbert and St Dunstan.

Q.

The house being bought is on a brownfield land. Is the soil potentially contaminated by waste minerals like tungsten?

A.

Though the dangers are usually minor, an plot will be marked as 'contaminated land' if the risk to human life is unacceptable. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as water contaminants such as solvents and perchlorate.

Q.

What will charges for the searches be?

A.

Searches range in cost. Informative but less frequently ordered extra searches include a search of the Index Map.

Q.

Does your firm manage auction conveyancing in Bellingham?

A.

Yes - Homeward Legal is able to work with sellers at auction. Conventionally difficult to value buildings such as properties requiring improvement, are listed in auctions and these need increased inquiries before completion. We therefore advise bidders to appoint an affordable lawyer well in advance of the auction for a detailed review of the auction legal papers.

Thereafter, following the auction your conveyancing solicitor is wholly geared up to completing the purchase within the limited time frame as typically required by the terms if sale.

Q.

Please give reasons why sale conveyancing work goes on for so long?

A.

The legal work undertaken to transfer property in Bellingham could be drawn out. Homeward Legal know how much extra stress these can cause and strive to minimise the consequences of these delays if it can be achieved by using fast search providers. Common delays can include the length of time it takes for the managing agent or landlord to respond to queries.

Q.

Our estate agent in Perivale has named the conveyancing solicitor. Will it be more cost-effective to instruct this solicitor?

A.

An agent in Perivale will often refer a conveyancer. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, there is a risk that an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the law firm with the best reputation.
