Q.

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.

Does the High Speed 2 route affect property in Ealing?

A.

Yes. HS2 will be an issue in numerous property in Perivale. This initial stage of HS2 will affect 23 local councils including Ealing, from central London to the Midlands.

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 sort of due diligence about the potential risk of local flooding at Lewisham will a property solicitor in Bellingham examine?

A.

An essential part of the conveyancing protocol involves a conveyancing solicitor conducting property conveyancing searches that provide you with information with regard to Bellingham historical flood risk. Depending on the results, a property lawyer in Bellingham could possibly suggest a more local flood search. At the time of writing (12-Jun-12) there were no warnings around the Ravensbourne from Bellingham to Catford at the River North Tyne and its tributaries from source to the confluence with the River Tyne

Q.

For fast legal work to buy a £743,000 residence, how can we speed things up?

A.

Contacting a proactive conveyancing solicitor is the key to a fast transaction. When selecting a conveyancing solicitor, you should ask the following: Will they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis? Do they offer 'instant' online quotes? Are phone, fax and email their preferred methods of contact

Q.

I've had a quote from you. Could I be expected to pay any additional fees when the transaction completes?

A.

Unfortunately, hidden fees are not uncommon in conveyancing. Our solicitors will never charge any hidden charges. A Homeward Legal quote is an single, accurate price the legal expenses for your 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.

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.
