Q.

We are trying to find a low cost conveyancing estimate in Copse Hill. What is included?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many property buyers and sellers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many firms claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional fees can inflate your final bill. Any extra charges which are listed in the terms needs to be reasonable.

Q.

We have had a quote from you. Are there any supplementary hidden charges?

A.

Our solicitors never charge any extra, hidden fees to buy or sell a home in Copse Hill.

Q.

How do I get out of paying SDLT rates?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is usually due for property sold for more than 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty reduction is not recommended for purchases in Copse Hill, as 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, interest and additional fines will be imposed.

Q.

Doing ones own conveyancing without using a Copse Hill solicitor appears to be becoming possible as a buyer and seller of a flat but would it be practicable ?

A.

Should you desire t refer to the various books, you can feasibly do the majority of the if not all of the your own conveyancing without having a trained conveyancer in Copse Hill.

Of course lawyers would argue that this would be a dangerous approach as DIY lawyers will be working without suitable professional indemnity insurance which all solicitors practices are required by their regulator to take out.

Q.

The Copse Hill property being bought is on a ex-industrial use land. Supposedly tin (Sn) topsoil contamination may be an issue.

A.

Soil contamination by industrial waste, including metals, will have occurred in parts of Copse Hill. The local authority for Copse Hill will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

Having heard about the fact that last year was second wettest year since on record I am thinking that property environmental searches may not be thorough enough?

A.

A good conveyancing solicitor in Copse Hill will also get flood risk searches if the first conveyancing searches determine a Copse Hill flood risk area data

For more peace of mind might be able to converse with a next door neighbour.

Q.

Does your property lawyer in Copse Hill get any conveyancing searches on the London Edwardian semi-detached home I am buying?

A.

When you are getting a mortgage a mortgage lender mandates at least these searches - Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environmental,, and possibly specific searches, which might include Cheshire Brine Search.

Q.

How is stamp duty calculated, what should it be on a £730000 property?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax depends on the purchase price. Stamp duty will be £29200 on a £730000 house.
