Q.

We need to find fixed rate conveyancing. What should be watch out for?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra charges are frequently hidden in the small print. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers, eager to get underway. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Are many Chipping Norton conservation areas likely to impact the house we are buying?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor handling your purchase should be able to offer more information and confirm potential liability for unauthorised works.

Q.

Q.

What kind of conveyancing searches concerning the risk and history of possible flooding at Oxfordshire will a Chipping Norton conveyancing solicitor conduct on an Edwardian home I am intending to buy?

A.

Your conveyancing lawyer will apply for standard environmental searches, which include Chipping Norton historical flood risk data. Also as an additional measure your solicitor in Chipping Norton might suggest a more involved (e.g. Landmark) detailed local Chipping Norton flood risk search.

Q.

Can you recommend how we avoid paying out for stamp duty tax?

A.

Stamp duty scheme should be treated with extreme caution, as such schemes are often uneconomical and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later and the total stamp duty amount may be due. There have been a range of government-sponsored schemes, on the other hand, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process should you arrange a conveyancing solicitor to handle our purchase?

A.

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the sooner the better, as conveyancing involves various tasks which may begin straight away. Instructing a solicitor early for a purchase may mean that you will the details of your Chipping Norton solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, relevant information can be sourced sooner (this is particularly true for leasehold properties).

Q.

Should we choose a solicitors firm who frequently works with by the estate agent?

A.

The agent will often refer a solicitors firm, however, these referrals must be carefully considered, as some agents choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

How much can my searches be?

A.

With Homeward Legal's conveyancing service, you will be charged at most £249 for searches. Your solicitor will usually advise a pack including a drainage search and a chancel liability search.
