Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing estimate in Cheshunt?

A.

This topic affects many sellers and buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many firms offer cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional costs will be included in the terms of engagement. Charges ought to be fair and only come into force where the conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

To complete on our purchase ASAP, how do we arrange fast conveyancing?

A.

It is well established that finding a proactive solicitor is the key to a fast conveyancing transaction. When selecting a solicitor, consider these points: Do they order searches immediately? Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote? Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.

Q.

Do I need a building survey?

A.

It is highly recommended that the majority of purchasers in Cheshunt arrange a home surveyor. There can be a range of issues that have a negative impact on a property. These can include dry rot and flat roof leaks, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

Is your solicitor team experienced enough to complete fast the conveyancing for auction properties in Cheshunt?

Yes - Indeed we are familiar with local and national auctions and regularly carry out work for buyers at auction. Homeward Legals panel of property lawyers have in the past been instructed by countless buyers and sellers at national and local auctions like Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Clever bidders tend to pick a SRA regulated solicitor as early as possible so there is time for a full investigation of the legal documents in advance of the auction day arrives. Post day of bidding your Homeward Legal lawyer will be able to concentrate on completing all of the legal work within 4 weeks as usually required .

Q.

How does a Cheshunt property solicitor report on the potential risk of flooding in the Cheshunt region on a Victorian property we are purchasing?

A.

A conveyancer will carry out conveyancing and environmental searches that will include Cheshunt flood risk area data.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if I plan to purchase in the parish of Bovingdon, near Cheshunt?

A.

Your solicitor might recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the residence being purchased is located. In older areas of Cheshunt, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the current owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. For property in the parish of Bovingdon, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Is there anything I can do to get out of paying out for stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty is usually due on purchases priced at over £125,000. Homeward Legal strongly advise against any stamp duty mitigation. Such 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 be payable.

Q.

What is the council tax on a Sixties end of terrace home in Cheshunt?

A.
