Q.

How do we get a cheap solicitor quote to buy a house?

A.

Both high-street and online conveyancers promote 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. A quote should list applicable disbursements. Extras should be fair. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

In about five weeks we are expecting to be moving from our period house near Bilborough to a larger property in Arnold . When to select a removals firm?

A.

Our recommendation is to avoid making arrangements with a removal van until the point where both sides have settled a formal move date that generally happens once final contracts are signed. As a rule home removals firms will charge a late cancellation fine

Q.

Can lithium (Li) contaminate Bilborough soil?

Given the region's industrial and agricultural history in parts of Bilborough, soil contamination is impossible to completely avoid. Metal contamination of soil in Bilborough is more likely to occur near waste treatment sites. Data on other contaminants, like radioactive waste, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

The estate agent we're using in Northampton has named the property solicitor that they have used before. Is it advisable to use this firm?

A.

The agent will usually suggest a conveyancing firm. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, there is a risk that the agent may suggest the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

Following recent news about the major flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands I am thinking that property conveyancing searches might not be sufficient?

A.

Flood risk searches carried out by the conveyancing solicitor in Bilborough will also include a far more in depth search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

If you are concerned why not consider contacting a future neighbour.

Q.

How is stamp duty rates calculated, how much should we pay on a £1102000 residence?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is dependent on several factors, including the property's value. It will be £55100 on a £1102000 residential property.

Q.

May the legal fees have any hidden charges?

A.

No. We will not charge any additional fees for any reason. Some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates, meaning that your final bill could be much higher.

Q.

At what point should you speak to a solicitor?

A.

In the vast majority of cases, as soon as possible. Instructing your solicitor sooner could mitigate the chance of your transaction stalling.
