Q.

What can I do to bypass paying stamp duty?

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is generally payable for home purchases sold for over 125,000 pounds. Homeward Legal do not recommend any stamp duty mitigation. These schemes are highly expensive 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. There have been a number of government initiatives, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas', and your solicitor will advise if these may apply.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if I am intending to buy in the parish of Clerkenwell St Mark, near Carshalton?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish where the house being bought is found. In older areas of Carshalton, chancel repair dues can be collected on owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past.

Q.

Is a house survey necessary when purchasing a house?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors recommend that property purchasers arrange a RICS surveyor. There are a range of defects that can affect a property. These can include wet rot.

Q.

What causes the sale conveyancing process in Carshalton to take such a long time? Should we be worried?

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase a property can experience delays. We understand how unnecessarily stressful these delays can be and aim to reduce their consequences if it can be achieved by pushing all parties involved. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as waiting for a mortgage offer.
