Q.

How do we find a cheap solicitor quote to buy a house?

A.

This catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional fees will be included in the solicitor's terms. Any charges which are listed in your solicitor's terms needs to be reasonable. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We are buying on a brownfield land. Is the soil likely to be contaminated?

A.

Considerable measures are taken in the areas around Crouch End to rectify topsoil contamination. Also considering issues such as groundwater contamination and trichloroethylene, contaminants affecting Crouch End property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

Why does conveyancing for a purchase have so many delays?

A.

The conveyancing process could be drawn out, Homeward Legal, however, endeavour to minimise their cost by driving the sale or purchase forward.

Q.

How long should I expect it to take our assigned property solicitor to exchange the legal work for a maisonette in a house we hope to buy in Crouch End?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere from 1 month to 12 weeks contingent on any number of things, such as the speed of the sellers solicitor, or the length of the chain.

Q.

Are we likely to be gazumped?

A.

This describes circumstances where a seller approves the first buyer's offer and then rejects it, opting for a greater offer. There is almost always a danger of gazumping. Consider instructing your solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.

Q.

The purchase is completing next June, what should be worked out for Stamp Duty Land Tax?

A.

The SDLT you pay is dependent on the valuation. On a £773000 property, stamp duty will be £30920.*

Q.

I have requested a quote from you. Could there be any hidden charges?

A.

Homeward Legal will never charge any extra, hidden costs to transfer a property. If you are comparing quotes, consider that some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote, which could be totally different to your final invoice.
