Q.

What are the best rates for conveyancing for a 124,000 home?

A.

Many online and high street firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. These terms are often ignored by excited homeowners, eager to get underway. Any charges which are listed in your solicitor's terms should be fair and clearly defined. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

My husband and I are interested in purchasing a building in Cambridgeshire. Are there many areas of conservation?

A.

Areas considered to be of 'special architectural and historic interest', like stretches of canals, may be recognised as conservation areas. Bassingbourn Caldecote, Duxford Airfield Duxford / Whittlesford and Longstanton are among the conservation areas in Cambridgeshire. The local authority will be able to provide more details about local conservation areas, and the conveyancing solicitor handling your purchase should discuss what specific restrictions are in place.

Q.

I have found plenty of useful manuals on the subject of DIY conveyancing. In which case, do I have to use conveyancing solicitor in Cambridgeshire for my move?

A.

There are no reasons why a seller should not undertake the bulk of the your own conveyancing without the help of a skilled property solicitor in Cambridgeshire. In reality however, a property solicitor is familiar with a large array of functions ranging from understanding the practical side of the process or notifying parties of completion which are better done by someone with a skilled professional. Above all else do it yourself conveyancers take huge risks in operating without acceptable insurance cover that every solicitors are obligated to get.

Q.

When in the process is it appropriate to instruct a conveyancer?

A.

In the majority of situations, as soon as possible, as the legal work can begin straight away. Instructing your solicitor sooner can reduce the likelihood of your purchase or sale stalling.

Q.

Do I need to opt for the solicitor put forward by the local agent?

A.

Agent recommendations are a not uncommon path whereby buyers get a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, the agent may prefer to suggest the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

Can you suggest how I avoid paying SDLT?

Homeward Legal do not advise buyers risk any stamp duty mitigation. These schemes are expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later imposing penalties and investigating all your tax matters. There have been a small number of government initiatives, however, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'. Your solicitor will advise as to your eligibility.
