Q.

I need a discount conveyancing quote. Will we get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Many online and high street firms purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra fees may inflate the final invoice. Any costs listed in the terms should be fair and clearly defined. They come into force only if your lawyer is required to complete extra work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Which of the Chippenham mortgage lender panels are you on?

A.

Most lenders in Chippenham are on our solicitors' panels. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Chippenham include DMI Finance, Po Box 3257, Chippenham, SN15 9DH.

Q.

How much will conveyancing searches cost?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches varies greatly. Searches are paid to a third party, and will be charged at cost.

Q.

The estate agent has named the law firm that they have used before. Do we need to instruct them?

A.

It is not uncommon for agents in Kingston to endorse a law firm to handle your conveyancing, however, these referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as the agent may prefer to suggest the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

May our conveyancing quote take into account any hidden costs?

A.

No. Our solicitors never hide any additional fees regardless of circumstances. You should be aware that some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. The final bill you receive may be much more.

Q.

Why does the conveyancing process require weeks?

A.

Conveyancing can take more time than initially expected, we, however, work hard to minimise the impact of these delays by proactively handling all enquiries. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as waiting for responses from third parties.

Q.

Would the house's fixtures and fittings list items such as the fridge?

A.

House purchasers in Chippenham will often be frustrated with the lack of formality over which fixtures and fittings should be included in a purchase. 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.

How can we calculate Stamp Duty Land Tax rates and how much do we need to budget for a £942000 Chippenham house?

A.

Stamp Duty depends on the value of the home. It will be £37680 on a £942000 residential property.
