Q.

How do I get a discount conveyancing estimate in Charing Cross?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many solicitors offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, but additional fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Any additional costs included in the small print should be fair and clearly defined.

Q.

We are worried about council tax charges on a Thirties converted property in Charing Cross, how much are they?

A.

As a rule a title report will give detail the relevant Westminster council tax band. The latest council tax charges for Charing Cross are detailed online at the Westminster local authority website. At the time of authoring, 17 August 2012, band rates are:

  • Band A - £456.00
    >
  • Band B - £533.00
  • Band C - £609.00
  • Band D - £685.00
  • Band E - £837.00
  • Band F - £989.00
  • Band G - £1,141.00
  • Band H - £1,369.00

Q.

As a consequence of the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since on record, I am anxious that flood searches might not be sufficient?

A.

A good Charing Cross conveyancer will consider also get property environmental searches if the enviro searches flag up a Charing Cross flood risk.

For added peace of mind it may be prudent to get in touch with a local resident.

Q.

We are intending to purchase a chapel in New Brentford. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Chancel repair can be imposed on the owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have spared previous owners or tenants.

Q.

Should we use the conveyancing solicitor that works with by the estate agent in Harbury?

A.

The Harbury agent will often recommend a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, it may be the case that the agent recommends whichever firm pays the most per referral, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

Is a survey advisable if we are purchasing property?

A.

Homeward Legal heavily advise that most Charing Cross buyers instruct a house surveyor to carry out a survey. There can be a range of defects that have a negative impact on a property, which will not be addressed during a property valuation. These include chimney defects or poor ventilation.

Q.

Which environmental factors can affect land in Charing Cross. Will they be checked for comprehensively?

A.

A broad range of contaminants may impact residential property in Charing Cross, like other land contamination or brine works. An environmental search will give more detail.

Q.

I am buying a £149000 property in Charing Cross, what will be calculated for SDLT?

A.

The Stamp Duty Land Tax owed will depend on the purchase price. For a property worth £149000, SDLT is £1490.
