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.

Which specific property conveyancing searches should the Booker conveyancer do when instructed on a Booker flat?

A.

Standard conveyancing procedure is to get the following Local Authority, Drainage Search and Environmental as well as any special local Booker searches, which might include Commons Registration (CON290).

Q.

How much is the council tax on a Forties terraced Band E dwelling in Booker?

Q.

We are going to move out of our semi detached house on the outskirts of Booker into a maisonette in Beaconsfield what is the best point to select a removals firm?

A.

We would usually encourage buyers and sellers put off booking a removals company until exchange of contracts because an agreed move date will not have been agreed. Some firms will charge a cancellation payment . For a local firm James International, 2 Hillbottom Rd, Sands Industrial Estate, High Wycombe, HP12 4HJ Tel: 01494 445502.

Q.

I have been reading about handling the legal work when buying and selling a home. Is it a silly move to enact the legal work without help.?

A.

If you want to use the various books to steer you, you can conceivably carry out the greater part of the legal and technical work without having Booker conveyancer .

However legal practices would suggest this is a potentially hazardous idea as DIY conveyancers are not covered by acceptable insurance cover which practicing solicitors firms always be covered by.

Q.

I am buying a 1930s maisonette in a conservation area in Booker, where can I find data relating to the standard of upkeep of the conservation area?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage keep a list of the state of repair of conservation areas.

Local Booker conservation areas are nominated by the local Wycombe planning authority, who govern everything from area development to the halting of billboards.

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.
