Q.

On the purchase of a 493k property, what will be the fees? I am trying to find a low cost conveyancing quote.

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many solicitors claim to offer cheap conveyancing, but additional charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. A conveyancing quote should, in addition, define any disbursements. Costs which are listed in terms of engagement needs to be fair and only apply to matters if the solicitor is required to complete extra work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Can you state how to circumvent paying for stamp duty land tax?

A.

We firmly advise against any stamp duty avoidance, because these schemes are costly and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later.

Q.

Should I choose a lawyer that works with by my local agent?

A.

If you instruct a solicitor through this route, you the agent is able to move the conveyancing process along. These referrals should be thoroughly considered, as an agent may select the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

In a few months we are shortly going to move out of our terraced residence in Cheam into our new building in Beddington . When to instruct a removal company?

Most conveyancers tend to recommend that buyers wait organising removals until after exchange of contracts as generally a home moving date wont have been firmed up.

Usually removals firms might charge a re booking cost . For a local Sutton company Anicemanwithavan.Com, 25 Church Hill Rd, Sutton, SM3 8LJ on 0844 332 8512 or P A B Removals, 48 Tilehurst Rd, Sutton, SM3 8PB Phone: 020 8641 8179.

Q.

When in the process do you need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor to act on our purchase?

A.

The short answer is, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as there are a number of tasks that can be performed straight away. Instructing your solicitor sooner for a purchase means that you will the details of your Cheam solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers.

Q.

What investigation as respects the risk and history of floods at Sutton will my conveyancing solicitor in Cheam give details on?

A.

An important step in the conveyancing protocol of purchasing a property involves your conveyancing lawyer conducting environmental searches that set out details in relation to the local Cheam flood risk. As an additional measure, a Cheam conveyancing solicitor might possibly advocate a more involved (e.g. Landmark) detailed local Cheam area flood risk search. At the time of writing (16-Jul-12) there were no warnings around the Pyl Brook at North Cheam at the Beverley Brook Catchment in the London Boroughs of Merton, Sutton, Kingston upon Thames, Richmond upon Thames and Wandsworth

Q.

Does your Cheam conveyancing solicitor carry out any property on the London Fifties detached house I am intending to purchase?

A.

If purchasing and getting a mortgage a mortgage lender expects particular searches, including - Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental and, depending on certain criteria, specific searches such as Contaminated Land.

Q.

Does your solicitors firm conduct the conveyancing for auction properties in Cheam?

A.

We are very competent with buyers at auction. Quite often hard to value homes such as Sold with defective legal titles, are listed in property auctions which will want further examination before committing. Lawyers therefore strongly suggest that bidders formally instruct an auction experienced lawyer prior to the date of the auction to allow time for a detailed investigation of the property's legal title. Following the auction day your experienced lawyer is completely focused on finishing the legal work in the limited time as required by the terms if sale.
