Q.

How do I get a cheap solicitor quote for selling a home?

A.

Many firms advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing, however extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any extra fees ought to be clearly defined. They be applicable if the lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

How do we determine additional info on the upkeep of the conservation areas in Charlton and Charlton?

A.

Conservation area matters, for example public spaces, non sympathetic doors or poorly maintained pavements are dealt with by the local Greenwich planning authority.

Q.

We have had a quote from you. Will there be any extra costs?

We never hide any hidden extra costs whatsoever. Some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, which could be totally different to your final invoice.

Q.

We are buying in Charlton. Are there any designated conservation areas in the area?

These areas categorise areas defined as being of architectural merit. Living in a conservation area can mean confidence that property will retain its value, but the restrictions can result in the buyer inheriting liability of unauthorised changes. A lawyer will address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.

Q.

Is it risky to circumvent paying for SDLT?

A.

Homeward Legal strongly advise against any form of stamp duty scheme. Such schemes are highly expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later.

Q.

Do it yourself conveyancing without instructing a Charlton conveyancing solicitor is becoming possible as a seller of a house. Would it actually be sensible ?

A.

Technically speaking there is absolutely no reason why a buyer cant take care of he conveyancing unaided. The truth is however that a solicitor carries out a large array of assignments e.g. chasing completion statements and maintaining constant communication with agents some of which need a qualified solicitor.

In any event however, legal firms are bound to be in possession of indemnity insurance that protects you in the event of any losses you encounter.

Q.
