Q.

We need to find a discount conveyancing estimate. How do I get a quote?

A.

Many buyers seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many firms purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional costs will be included in the small print. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Our purchase is completing in February. How is stamp duty worked out?

A.

The rate of stamp duty payable is dependent on the valuation. Stamp duty will be £38640 on a £966000 property in Booker (accurate March 2013).

Q.

Is there a risk that our purchase will be gazumped?

A.

Gazumping happens when a seller acknowledges an offer, only to later reject it in favour of a second buyer's offer. There is almost always a risk of gazumping. You should instruct a solicitor as early as possible to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.

Q.

What factors can impact land in Booker, and are they properly investigated?

A.

Numerous of contaminants may impair Booker property, and an environmental search should reveal whether a property is impacted by local contaminants including civil aviation activity in the area or waste treatment sites in the area. Contamination can be caused by local waste sites, including E J Churchill Group Ltd, Park Lane, Buckinghamshire, HP14 3NS.

Q.

The owner has fitted roof antenna to the flat in Booker which might possibly infringe conservation area guidelines

A.

A property solicitor will carry out searches establish whether the property is inside a designated conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have required consents.

Q.

What average time does it take my conveyancing solicitor to exchange contracts the legal work on a terraced sixties building?

A.

The legal process can take anywhere from 3 weeks and 12 weeks, which can be hampered by various issues for example the speed of the seller's property solicitor, or whether the property is freehold or leasehold. Our property lawyers are highly proactive with the goal of completing the process as quickly as realistically possible.

Having read about the extensive flooding in the UK in April 2012 I am anxious that flood searches won't be sufficient?

Environmental searches carried out by a Booker conveyancing solicitor will include the far more thorough search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.
