Q.

How do I get a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

Many property lawyers promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra fees are often hiding in the terms and conditions. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

What steps can I take to defer paying stamp duty tax?

A.

Stamp duty mitigation is not recommended for purchases in Burnham On Crouch. Such schemes are highly expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later and the total stamp duty tax may be payable.

Q.

Do Homeward Legal advise on the conveyancing for residential property auction properties in Burnham On Crouch?

A.

Yes - Our firm often act for buyers at auction. Homeward Legal consistently encourage purchasers to select a SRA regulated conveyancing firm well in advance of the auction for a title report of the legal papers.

After the auction day the solicitor is thoroughly prepared for completing the legal work in the limited time as required by the terms if sale.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing transaction on the purchase of a £846,000 residence, what should we do?

A.

Importantly, finding a experienced lawyer is key fast conveyancing. There are, however, numerous things you can do to accelerate the legal work. These include:

  • keeping in regular contact with your lawyer
  • answering any queries raised by the lawyer as soon as possible
  • confirming your mortgage offer

Q.

What does 'fixtures and fittings' refer to?

A.

Chiefly, fixtures are fixed to floors, walls and ceilings, whereas fixtures are easier to detach or remove. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This makes resolving any confusion between buyer and seller on this issue so urgent.

Q.

We are purchasing a property in Barking. Will a chancel search be specified?

A.

Whether you are buying a property in Burnham On Crouch or elsewhere in the county, the lawyer might recommend that a chancel search be ordered. Although some parish councils have exercised their right to charge chancel repairs on the owners of lay rectorships, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not be so in future, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Do property searches need to be performed?

A.

Conveyancing searches are a standard set of queries carried out on behalf of the party intending to buy the property. Conveyancing searches are highly recommended, but refer to the legal condition of the property's title.

Q.

What will the council tax cost on a residential Band H flat in Burnham On Crouch?

A.

The respective council tax band should usually be highlighted in the conveyancer's title report along with the local authority. The latest tax rates for homes in Burnham On Crouch are set out in detail online at the Maldon council site. On 07 March 2013 band rates are:
