Q.

Please advise how to avoid paying stamp duty on our purchase?

Q.

Why might sale conveyancing legal work go on for so long?

A.

Conveyancing may take more time than budgeted, we, however, seek to minimise the impact of these delays wherever reasonable by driving the sale or purchase forward.

Q.

The purchase is completing next January. What will be calculated for SDLT?

A.

The rate of stamp duty that is payable will depend on a limited set of factors, including the value of the house or flat, and whether it is in a 'disadvantaged area'. Stamp duty will be £58200 on a £1164000 property.

Q.

What does the Bushey property solicitor recommend if the property I am planning to buy is located in a Hertsmere local authority conservation area which appears to have conspicuous stone cladding installed?

A.

Hertsmere planning authority LLC1 searches conducted by a property lawyer during the conveyancing process will identify if the property is in a designated conservation area and evidence of local authority approval for alterations will be asked for. In the absence of any appropriate consents, your Bushey conveyancing solicitor will recommend the options, which include obtaining from the planning authority or getting covered by an indemnity insurance policy.
