Q.

How do I get low cost conveyancing in Dursley?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many property buyers and sellers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many solicitors claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra fees will be included in the terms of engagement. Any fees ought to be reasonable. They only be applied if your lawyer must complete additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

How long on average should it take my assigned conveyancing solicitor to get through all of the legal formalities on the top floor of period home we are purchasing in Dursley?

A.

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere between around a month and 12 weeks contingent on a number of things, like the speed of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or the time taken to issue draft contracts.

Q.

What will the Dursley conveyancing solicitor recommend if the home is situated in a Stroud conservation area and turns out to have unseemly removal of chimney stacks added?

A.

Stroud planning authority searches carried out by a property lawyer will check if the property is within a conservation area and evidence of Coal Authority consent for changes to the property will be requested. Should no authority consents be available, the solicitor will inform you of the best alternative for example requesting an indemnity insurance or obtaining retrospective consent from Stroud planning authority.

Q.

At what point should we instruct a conveyancer to act on our purchase?

A.

If you use a solicitor offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the sooner you instruct a solicitor, the better. A number of sources advocate postponing instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.

Q.

We are buying in Dursley on a new-build brownfield site. It seems tin (Sn) soil contamination may be an issue.

A.

Dursley agriculture or industry can cause topsoil contamination. Also considering issues such as perchlorate and water contaminants such as organic compounds, contaminants affecting Dursley property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

An unexpected event dictate that we want to get going and complete on the conveyancing on our home rapidly, do Homeward Legal have very fast Dursley solicitors ?

A.

Our conveyancing solicitors typically adopt a thoroughly active modus operandi when completing the conveyancing process for sellers to meet the sellers requirements.

Our lawyers approach is to use cutting edge HMRC and Land Registry integrated systems . Critically we allocate you a expert panel of solicitor incentivised to communicate through every part of the buyer and seller chain .

Q.

What can we do to avoid paying for stamp duty on buying a house in Dursley?

A.

Stamp duty is generally due for houses sold for more than one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. Stamp duty avoidance is not recommended. These schemes are costly and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed and the total stamp duty tax may be payable, along with interest and penalties.

Q.

Do fixtures and fittings include things like free-standing kitchen appliances?

A.

Commonly, fixtures are fixed items, such as gas or wall-mounted ovens to the property, whereas fixtures can be more easily removed. This may not considered until it is too late, hence the importance of a complete fixtures and fittings form, agreed by both parties.
