Q.

Is it important to get searches for chancel liability? I am purchasing in Canvey Island.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds.

Q.

In what ways does a lawyer in Canvey Island advise us on the potential risk of a flood at Canvey Island?

A.

An important component in the legal procedure involves a conveyancing solicitor carrying out environmental searches that give you certain details regarding Canvey Island flood risk area data. A more thorough flood search (e.g. Landmark) will sometimes be suggested by your lawyer in Canvey Island if the results of the environmental search show that there is a flood risk.

Q.

I have read about the conveyancing process as a buyer of a maisonette , Would it be realistic to carry out the legal work on my own?

A.

Technically there are no arguments why a home buyer should not engage in the majority of the legal work unaided. That said, a solicitor in Canvey Island takes care of a huge number of functions e.g. applying for and interpreting office copies or apportioning service charges some of which need a qualified professional. Despite that lawyers are required by the Law Society to carry relevant professional indemnity insurance to protect you in the event of any losses you encounter.

Q.

How do we hold off paying out for stamp duty?

A.

Homeward Legal do not recommend any stamp duty mitigation. Such schemes are costly and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed imposing fines and reviewing all your revenue matters.
