Q.

Are additional fees applied? I need a low cost conveyancing quote in Cranleigh.

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many solicitors claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra charges can inflate the solicitor's invoice. Any costs included in your solicitor's terms should be reasonable and come into force only if your solicitor must complete work beyond standard conveyancing for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A conveyancing quote should list costs to be paid to third parties, such as the local authority, (disbursments).We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

What are fixtures and fittings?

A.

Buyers in Cranleigh are frequently confused by the lack of detail regarding what fixtures and fittings are included. To avoid misunderstandings, a fixtures and fittings form should be agreed and will confirm what will be sold with the property.

Q.

Is there something I can do to defer paying for stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty mitigation scheme is not advised when buying in Cranleigh, as such schemes are costly and can be very unlikely to succeed.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Cranleigh?

A.

Cranleigh is located in Waverley Borough Council, The Burys, Godalming, Surrey, GU7 1HR, Tel: 01483 523 333

Q.

I am buying a 1950s investment flat in a designated conservation area in Cranleigh. Where does one find more information on the state of repair of the conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas in Cranleigh are set up by the local authority (Waverley) who maintain things like paths to the blockage of derelict buildings.

English Heritage have conducted a survey and created a list of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas.

Q.

Are there services who remediate contaminated soil in Cranleigh?

A.

Remediation is often feasible, although it can be expensive. A local service provider for example Hoskin Turf Farms, The Street, Ewhurst, Cranleigh, GU6 7QA can provide more detail.

Q.

How might sale conveyancing require months?

A.

The legal work required to buy or sell a property may be lengthy. Homeward Legal know how stressful these delays can be and endeavour to diminish the effect of these delays by pushing all parties involved.

Q.

How long should it take my assigned property solicitor to conduct all of the conveyancing work on an apartment in an Edwardian house we are intending to buy?

A.

Completion can take anywhere from 3 weeks and twelve weeks, which can depend on a number of things e.g. the efficiency of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or the turnaround of searches.
