Q.

I am looking for the cheapest conveyancing solicitors. as we are on a budget.

A.

The confusion over this topic affects many property buyers and sellers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process, and many conveyancers claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions which property buyers and sellers may have not read carefully Charges listed in terms of engagement should be fair. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

Which parts of Dorking are protected by a conservation area?

A.

There are a number of areas of conservation in or near Dorking. Your lawyer will be able to provide more details.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Dorking?

A.

Dorking is located in Mole Valley District Council, Pippbrook, Dorking, Surrey, RH4 1SJ, contact: 01306 885 001

Q.

How many weeks will it take my assigned conveyancing solicitor to exchange contracts all of the conveyancing work on a flat in a building?

Completion can take anywhere from around a month and 3 months based on a number of things e.g. the speed of the sellers solicitor, or the speed of other lawyers in the chain.

Q.

Is homewardlegal.co.uk experienced enough to complete within 28 days of exchange on property auction conveyancing in Dorking?

A.

Yes - All of our property conveyancers commonly get instructed by bidders at auction. Our niche auction team of solicitors and conveyancers have previously acted for countless vendors at local residential property auctions including Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Experienced auction buyers will instruct an auction experienced conveyancing firm as quickly as they can to allow for a detailed investigation of the auction legal papers prior to the auction day arrives.

Post day of the auction your instructed property conveyancing lawyer will be geared up to finishing the transaction in 28 days as typically required .

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if I plan to purchase in the parish of Coulsdon, near Dorking?

A.

Your lawyer may suggest a chancel search. Through some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to charge chancel repairs on the current owners, there is no guarantee that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not continue to be so. For property in the parish of Coulsdon, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

How is SDLT calculated and what should we pay on a £921000 house?

A.

The Stamp Duty rate you will owe is calculated with reference to the house or flat's price. On a £921000 property, stamp duty will be £36840.*

*This information accurate as of June 2012

Q.

I have a reasonable understanding of doing ones own conveyancing when selling a flat - Might it be foolish to take care of the legal work ourselves?

A.

Technically there are no reasons why a buyer cannot handle the bulk of the legal process on your own. However, a conveyancing solicitor in Dorking handles a large array of assignments ranging from drafting contracts or interpreting planning contraventions most of which require experience.
