Q.

What will the overall charge be on the sale of a £79,000 property? I am trying to find low cost conveyancing in Chiswick.

A.

Numerous firms advertise cheap conveyancing. However additional costs are often hiding in the terms. These terms are often ignored by excited home owners, eager to get underway. Any extra costs found in the solicitor's terms ought to be reasonable and clear and only apply to matters if your lawyer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction 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.

What average time does it take our conveyancing solicitor to finish all of the legal formalities on a maisonette in a sixties house?

A.

The legal process can take anywhere between a month and 12 weeks, which can be hampered by a number of issues e.g. the speed of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or renegotiations. Our highly solicitors in Chiswick are exceptionally proactive completing as speedily as realistically possible.

Q.

In respect to the catastrophic flooding in the UK in April 2012 I am thinking that conveyancing searches aren't sufficient?

A.

Your Chiswick lawyer will recommend that you include conveyancing searches if the initial search flags up a risk.

For greater peace of mind it may be prudent to speak to a local resident.

Q.

How is stamp duty calculated, and what will we need to pay on a £569000 property?

A.

Stamp Duty is dependent on the purchase price. Stamp duty will be £22760 on a £569000 house or flat.

Q.

Is a Telegraphic Transfer fee paid to the solicitor?

A.

Some solicitors frequently hide fees which should be included as disbursements. It may not be obvious whether a cost is a fee or not, and whether it should be included. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in the quote for your conveyancing.

Q.

Will the property report prepared by the Chiswick lawyer provide details about the applicable rates of council tax on a Band G house prior to completion?

A.

A solicitor will liaise with the relevant local authority to ascertain the up to date council tax charges which will be detailed in the conveyancing report on title. The latest tax rates for residents of Chiswick are detailed on the local authority site.

Q.

The local agent has named the property solicitor which they often use. Is it risky to instruct this firm?

A.

An agent will often refer a solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, the agent may recommend the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

I have a requirement for especially fast Chiswick solicitors - is that you?
