Q.

Is a building survey a good idea when purchasing residential property?

A.

It is strongly recommended that you order a house survey. Many defects can negatively affect a property, which include flat roof leaks.

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

Q.

If we are purchasing near Byfleet, in the parish of Battersea St George, do we need a chancel search?

A.

The solicitor may suggest a chancel search, irrespective of the parish in which the property being purchased is located. Through some Parochial Church Councils have opted to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not be so in future. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

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

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?
