Q.

Denmark Hill attractions and landmarks

A.

Brixton London Windmill, Imperial War Museum Aviation Museum and Tate Modern Art Gallery are near to Denmark Hill.

The most convenient hospital for Denmark Hill is Kings College Denmark Hill.

Q.

Please confirm the cheapest fee for a 51,000 property? We need to find a fixed rate conveyancing estimate in Denmark Hill.

A.

This matter catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any disbursements must also be stated on a quote Feeswhich are listed in terms and conditions should be reasonable. They be applied only where the lawyer must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

When should I find a conveyancer in Denmark Hill?

A.

In the majority of situations, as soon as possible, as there are various tasks that can be performed very early in the process. Instructing a firm to handle your Denmark Hill conveyancing early for a sale enables paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found, whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.

Q.

Flood risk searches may be standard procedure but in light of current events such as the fact that an estimated 2 8m people are at risk from surface flooding are they comfort enough to determine sufficient information about the ever changing local Denmark Hill flood risk?

A.

Your solicitor in Denmark Hill should also get environmental searches if the first conveyancing searches determine a significant risk.

For more peace of mind you can contact a local resident.

Q.

How do we work out stamp duty, and what will we need to pay on a £269k property?

A.

The Stamp Duty you pay depends on the value of the house or flat. For a house in Denmark Hill bought for £269k, stamp duty will be £8070.*

*Correct March 2013

Q.

Should you get a chancel liability search? We are purchasing on the same street as a 1300s rectory manor in Denmark Hill.

A.

The judgement in a court case between a parish council and owners of neighbouring farmland liable for church repairs confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Parochial Church Councils in Denmark Hill must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process.

Q.

Do you advise taking action to get out of paying for stamp duty to HM Revenue?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is payable for purchases sold for more than £125,000. We do not recommend any stamp duty avoidance, because these schemes are often uneconomical and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.

Q.

How is Denmark Hill contaminated land checked when purchasing a property?

A.

Many of contaminants caused by human activities can reduce the value of Denmark Hill property. Issues like petroleum and fuel sites and sand or gravel pits will be investigated during the conveyancing process.

Q.

What do we need to know about fixtures and fittings?

A.

There is no strict definition of fixtures and fittings, resulting in considerable confusion once the buyer moves in and the previous owner has taken certain items or fixtures with them. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This makes the completion of a fixtures and fittings form essential.
