Q.

How do we find the best conveyancing rates for a £504,000 home?

A.

Many law firms claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra fees are often hiding in the small print.

Q.

Does your solicitors company get involved in the conveyancing for auction properties in Downton?

A.

Our company is very competent with residential property auction conveyancing. Typically more complicated to convey homes like barn conversions, are purchased in auctions and these demand greater inquiries before completing. We therefore strongly encourage bidders to instruct a SRA regulated conveyancing firm in advance of the property auction date to allow for a review.

After the auction day itself your dedicated lawyer is wholly focused on finishing all of the legal work inside a month as typically required .

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if we are intending to buy in the parish of Hinton Parva, near Downton?

The solicitor responsible for your move may suggest a chancel search, whichever parish in which the property being purchased is found. Through some Parochial Church Councils have chosen to exact chancel repairs on owners of lay rectorships, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish which has not imposed liability will not be so in future.

Q.

What can we do to get out of paying stamp duty land tax?

A.

Stamp duty avoidance is not recommended, 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.

Is preparation of title repair or a indemnity policy a fee or disbursement?

A.

It is not always obvious whether a quoted cost is a disbursement or fee. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your quote.
