Wallingford Community is the nearest hospital.

Q.

We need to find the cheapest conveyancing quote. What do I need to check for?

A.

Lack of clarity over this issue catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra fees are frequently hidden in small print. Extras should be fair.

Q.

Should we select the law firm referred by my local agent?

A.

Agent referrals are a common practice path for purchasers to get a solicitor. These referrals should be considered carefully, as it may be the case that the agent recommends the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

What type of conveyancing searches in connection with the potential risk of floods to properties in Oxfordshire will my Dorchester On Thames lawyer be able to carry out?

A.

A lawyer makes an application for standard formal environmental searches that should include Dorchester On Thames flood risk area data. At the time of this article being published (04-Jan-13)

there were no warnings around the River Thame at Dorchester at the River Thames from Days Lock down to South Stoke, including Dorchester-on-Thames and Overy, Shillingford, Benson, Wallingford, North Stoke and Moulsford

Q.

How early should you get a conveyancing solicitor to handle our sale?

A.

With few exceptions, the earlier, the better. Early instruction of a firm to act on your Dorchester On Thames sale or purchase can reduce the likelihood of your purchase or sale stalling.

Q.

How much will my searches be?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches in Dorchester On Thames will vary, subject to the searches your lender requires. Searches are paid to a third party.

Q.

I am purchasing a house in Dorchester On Thames. Can we find out whether the house is in a conservation area?

A.

Locales deemed to be of special architectural or historic interest, such as 19th century suburbs, will be recognised as areas of conservation. You may wish to contact the council for more information, but your solicitor will investigate the impact of conservation areas or other planning restrictions.

Q.

We are buying in Dorchester On Thames, and have a conveyancing quote from you. Might I be invoiced any additional costs?

A.

No. Homeward Legal's solicitors never charge any hidden extra costs. You should be aware that some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote, which they will not be required to adhere to.

Q.

Would you advise making the effort to bypass paying stamp duty?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax must be paid on homes over 125,000 pounds. We firmly advise against any form of stamp duty mitigation. Such schemes are expensive and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself.
