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.

What are 'fixtures and fittings'?

A.

Chiefly, fixtures are fixed to the property, whereas fixtures are free-standing. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This makes a fixtures and fittings form so necessary.

Q.

Myself and my partner are purchasing in Charing Cross. How do I find out if the residence is in a conservation area?

A.

There are a number of areas of conservation around Charing Cross. You may wish to contact the local authority for more detail, but your property solicitor will investigate this in detail during the property transaction.

Q.

How do we get out of paying stamp duty to HM Revenue?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is generally due for residential property over £125,000. Stamp duty mitigation scheme must be treated with caution. Such schemes are highly expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later.

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.

Can barium (Ba) contaminate Charing Cross soil?

A.

Charing Cross industry and natural causes can cause soil contamination. Metal contamination of soil in Charing Cross is more likely to occur near disused factories or waste management sites. Data on other contaminants, like chlorinated solvents and groundwater contaminants like industrial chemicals, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

What kind of flood plain searches in connection with the uncertain risk of possible flooding to properties in Westminster will my Charing Cross property lawyer be able to conduct on a Victorian maisonette I am going to buy?

A.

A solicitor applies for conveyancing and environmental searches that should include Charing Cross flood risk area data. At the time of writing (08/01/13) reports on the Environment Agency do not reveal any flood warnings in Charing Cross.

Q.

For fast conveyancing to buy a £126,000 property, what do we need to organise?
