Q.

I need to find a cheap solicitor quote to purchase a property. What is included?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this topic affects many buyers and sellers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process, and many property lawyers purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, however extra charges can inflate your final bill. Any additional fees should be reasonable. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

How long should it take my assigned conveyancer to conclude the conveyancing process for a maisonette in a new build property?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere from around a month and 3 months depending on a number of factors, for example the efficiency of the seller's property lawyer, or re-negotiations following a survey.

Q.

What causes purchase conveyancing to require months?

A.

The Downham conveyancing process will sometimes be lengthy for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, the reasons are out of a lawyer's control, Homeward Legal, however, see how frustrating such delays may be and work hard to reduce their effect where viable. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as a slow firm acting for the lender.

Q.

I am selling in Downham, and have had a quote from you. Are there any additional charges?

A.

No. Homeward Legal never hide any additional fees. Know that some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

Q.

How do I establish whether the Downham conservation area is in a poor state?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, administer records of the state of conservation areas in England.

Local conservation areas are specified by Lewisham who administer conservation area concerns from including things like excessive road signs, coloured road surfaces and trees.

Q.

Can you advise how I get out of paying stamp duty tax?

A.

Stamp duty reduction scheme should be treated with extreme caution, because 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.

Are you set up to 28 day completions on the conveyancing of property auction properties in Downham?

A.

We are auction specialists and often get instructed by buyers and sellers at auction. It is a shrewd move bidders to appoint a CQS lawyer as ahead of time as possible to give enough time for a detailed investigation of the property's legal title before the date of the auction. Immediately following the auction day arrives your dedicated conveyancing lawyer will be prepared for finishing the transaction within the reduced time frame as typically required .

Q.

What will my searches cost?

A.

Searches range in cost, and will be dependent on your lender's requirements. Less common searches, used in addition to a standard bundle, include a gypsum search.
