Q.

How do we get low cost conveyancing in Crediton?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many homeowners, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many solicitors claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often extra costs are often hiding in the terms of engagement. The quote should state costs to be paid to third parties, like the local authority, (disbursments).Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

For fast conveyancing on the purchase of a £729,000 property, what should we do?

A.

Finding a proactive, diligent property lawyer is key a fast transaction. Ask these questions when identifying your conveyancer:

  • Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote?
  • Are phone, fax and email their preferred methods of contact
  • How soon will they order searches?

Q.

We are going to buy a Victorian terraced house. Do we need conveyancing searches?

A.

These searches are queries ordered in the interest of the purchaser, which may include a local authority search. Searches are unable to address physical defects.

Q.

How soon should I instruct a solicitor?

A.

If you use a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the faster you instruct the better. The legal work can then start very early in the process.

Some recommend postponing instruction until a chain is completed, but you will then be at a serious disadvantage in the event of a contract race, or buyer eager to move quickly.

Q.

We are buying a property where the seller appears to have installed inappropriate windows to the flat which may conflict with Sandford conservation area rules.

A.

The solicitor will always verify whether the property is affected by a designated conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have appropriate consent from the Mid Devon planning authority.Should no authority consents be in evidence, the solicitor will give you professional advice on the best alternative which may include seeking an indemnity insurance or obtaining retrospective approval from the council.

Q.

We must to exchange contracts on the conveyancing process on our mortgaged leasehold flat rapidly, are you fast Crediton solicitors ?

A.

Our solicitors have a highly take charge approach when completing the conveyancing and title transfer.

Our CQS solicitors will always attempt to communicate through the whole of the buyer and seller property chain and use state of the art conveyancing case management and IT systems to complete your home move to your preferred move date.

Q.

Can you recommend how I circumvent paying out for stamp duty tax?

A.

SDLT is payable for purchases priced at over 125,000 pounds. We do not advise clients arrange any stamp duty mitigation. These schemes are costly and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed . There have been several government-sponsored schemes, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers. A conveyancing solicitor should confirm whether you are eligible.

Q.

I am going to purchase with Saffron Building Society - is there anything we need to consider?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', which may result in increased legal costs for property purchasers. We are able to act on behalf of all large mortgage lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay the lender's costs.
