Q.

We need a cheap solicitor quote for purchasing a house. Will we get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Various firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional costs may inflate the final invoice. A quote should state any disbursements. Any costs included in your solicitor's terms needs to be clearly defined and only come into force where your conveyancer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

As is often reported, a fast conveyancing transaction is crucial to is to employing a proactive property lawyer. Consider the following when selecting:

Q.

How do we hold off paying SDLT?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is payable for residential property sold for more than one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. We do not recommend any stamp duty reduction scheme. These schemes are highly expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later and the total stamp duty tax may be payable. There have been a number of government initiatives, such as disadvantaged area relief. A conveyancing solicitor should confirm whether you are eligible.

Q.

What are the pitfalls if we invest in a Blackfen flat within a Bexley local authority designated conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the due diligence for buyers includes procurement of searches of Bexley local authority to check conservation area status and permission for alterations. If no appropriate consents can be provided your Blackfen conveyancing solicitor will inform you of all options e.g. getting covered by an indemnity insurance or seeking retrospective consent from Bexley council.

Q.

Do we need to instruct the solicitor referred by my agent?

A.

It is not uncommon for agents in Northolt to endorse one or more conveyancing firms. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, there is a risk that an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

Is cadmium (Cd) contamination found in Blackfen soil?

A.

Given the region's industrial and agricultural history in parts of Blackfen, soil contamination is difficult to avoid. Also considering issues such as groundwater contaminants like silage and hazardous gases, contaminants affecting Blackfen property will be factored into an environmental search.
