Q.

I am trying to find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Cubitt Town. because we are on a limited budget.

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many law firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Should I be concerned about gazumping?

A.

Gazumping occurs when an offer is accepted but then rejected by the seller and then selecting another buyer's higher offer. The risk of getting gazumped is present in any transaction. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a property solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer.

Q.

What kind of local environmental searches into the uncertain risk of a flood at Tower Hamlets will the conveyancer in Cubitt Town be able to carry out for a seventies property I am buying?

A.

A qualified property lawyer makes an application for standard property environmental searches, which include Cubitt Town flood risk information.

Q.

Do you state taking precautions to get out of paying SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty reduction scheme is not advised. These schemes are costly and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself.

Q.

Is there an authority that has any published record on the standard of the conservation areas in Cubitt Town?

A.

Conservation are issues including the historic layout of roads, removal of existing windows or street posts are handled by the local authority (Greenwich). English Heritage now maintain records of the state of conservation areas in Cubitt Town and across England.

Q.

When is it wise to speak to a solicitor in Cubitt Town?

A.

With few exceptions, the faster you instruct the better, as the legal work can commence immediately. Prompt instruction of a firm can limit the risk of the transaction stalling.

Q.
