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.

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?

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

Q.

How much is the council tax on a converted house in Bellingham?

A.

Frequently a report on title will contain the Lewisham council tax band.

Q.

Is there anything I can do to avoid paying stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty mitigation should be treated with extreme caution in Bellingham, as such schemes are costly and can be very unlikely to succeed. There have been a number of government-sponsored schemes, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'.

Q.

What average time will it take the property lawyer to get through the legal formalities on a maisonette in a Thirties building in Bellingham?

A.

The legal process can take anywhere between a month and 12 weeks dependent on a number of issues for example the efficiency of the vendor's conveyancer, or the speed of the lender. Our chosen property lawyers are very focused on pushing transactions through, completing the legal process as soon as possible.

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.
