Q.

Will my assigned Byfleet conveyancing solicitor report back to me about the cost of the council tax for a Band E townhouse before completing on the purchase?

Your solicitor will consult with the Elmbridge local authority to enquire about the current council tax band and rates, which will be written in the conveyancer's title report.

Q.

We have a house to purchase. How do we get fast conveyancing?

A.

Instructing a communicative lawyer is the key to fast conveyancing. When choosing a lawyer, consider these points: Do they offer 'instant' online quotes? Are phone, fax and email their preferred methods of contact Will they order searches immediately?

Q.

Can you suggest how I avoid paying stamp duty?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is usually payable on property over £125,000. Stamp duty mitigation is not recommended for purchases in Byfleet. Such schemes are costly and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed and the total stamp duty tax may be payable, along with interest and penalties.

Q.

How long should it take our solicitor to conclude all of the legal work on a semi detached home we want to buy?

A.

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere between one month and 3 months, which can depend on a number of factors, for example the speed of the vendor's property solicitor, or the speed of other lawyers in the chain. Our chosen conveyancing solicitors are highly proactive with the goal of completing as promptly as possible.

Q.

As a result of the fact that last year was second wettest year since on record I am anxious that flood searches might not be thorough enough?

A.

A diligent conveyancer in Byfleet will get environmental searches if the standard conveyancing searches determine a any kind of risk of flooding in Byfleet

You might be able to also contact a neighbour of the property for added local history.

Q.

In the next few we are hoping to be finally moving out of our period home in Byfleet to our new maisonette in Bramley at what stage to select a home removal firm?

A.

Most solicitors will recommend that home buyers and sellers wait booking a removals company until such time as exchange of contracts has occurred as an absolute date will not have been set. Some house removals firms add a cancellation cost .
