Q.

How do we get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra charges are often hiding in small print. Extra costs should be fair. They be applicable solely where your lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

Do I need to opt for a solicitor offered by my estate agent in Herne Bay?

A.

It is common practice for agents to endorse a law firm to handle your conveyancing. Such referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

DIY conveyancing without the support of a conveyancer in Caterham is becoming possible when buying a maisonette , but would it be a good economy ?

A.

If you are so inclined attempt to do this you can definitely look after the majority of the legal work without approaching a qualified property solicitor in Caterham.

Of course legal firms would suggest that this is a risky idea as amateur lawyers are taking risks without the applicable insurance cover that lawyers will take out.

Q.

How is contaminated land in Caterham investigated when buying?

A.

Property could be contaminated by many environmental factors, like proximity to scrap yards. An environmental search will reveal this in more detail.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Caterham?

A.

Caterham is located in Tandridge District Council, Station Road East, Oxted, Surrey, RH8 0BT, Call: 01883 722 000

Q.

What can a Caterham conveyancing lawyer do if the property we are intending to buy is in a registered conservation area and has unapproved PVC windows added?

A.

Your property lawyer will make enquiries to see whether your new home is inside a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have the appropriate consents from the local council.

Q.

Flood searches are assessed from archived information and when you factor in recent climactic events like fact that 2012 was second wettest year since records began are they the ideal way to determine sufficient information about the ever changing Caterham flood risk area?

A.

Environmental searches carried out by a Caterham property solicitor will include a more specialist flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

If you remain concerned you can visit a next door neighbour or local Surrey flooding repair expert - try: RGB Services, 47 Heath Rd, Caterham, CR3 5RS Tel: 0800-978 8161.

Q.

How do we get out of paying stamp duty on a residential property?

A.

Homeward Legal do not recommend home movers arrange any form of stamp duty mitigation scheme. These schemes are highly expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed meaning that the full stamp duty amount will then be due. There have been several government-sponsored schemes, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers.
