Q.

How do we get the best conveyancing rates for a £147k house?

A.

Both high-street and online law firms advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional charges will be included in the small print. This small print is often not read by home owners in a hurry. Your Earlsfield conveyancing quote must also state any disbursements.Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

We have to find really fast solicitors in Earlsfield - is that your solicitors?

A.

Our panel of solicitors always adopt a highly take charge approach to completing the conveyancing and title transfer as quickly as possible.

Homeward Legal only ever introduce you to conveyancers who will communicate through the whole of the chain . Furthermore , our network of property lawyers are chosen because they use the latest automated practice management and technology systems to exchange on the property sale without hitch.

Q.

Should we employ a conveyancing named by the estate agent in Leyton?

A.

An agent will be able to pressure a conveyancer they refer many clients to, and can therefore exert pressure on a solicitor to complete

sooner. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, some agents may 'recommend' the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

Where do we learn additional data the status of the conservation areas in Earlsfield and Earlsfield?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, maintain a list of the state of repair of conservation areas. Local conservation areas e.g. public spaces, addition of hard standings to the front of houses or poorly maintained roads are handled by the local Wandsworth planning authority.

Q.

Can you advise how to circumvent paying SDLT?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is payable on residential property sold for over 125,000 pounds. We strongly advise against any form of stamp duty avoidance. Such schemes are highly expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed meaning that the full stamp duty amount will be payable.

Q.

We are buying on a ex-industrial use land. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste like strontium (Sr)?

A.

There are wide-ranging regulations in place in order to manage soil contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as chlorine and water contaminants such as petrol, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

What is the optimum stage a home seller reserve a removal van?

A.

Best advice is for buyers to wait before making arrangements with a removal firm until such time as you and the other side has contractually agreed a moving date that happens once contracts have exchanged.

Usually home removals firms often charge a rearrangement fee . For a local Wandsworth company Wandsworth Removals, 100/106/East Hill, London, SW18 2HF Telephone: 020 8746 4344.

Q.

I am intending to buy an Edwardian terraced house. Do we need 'conveyancing searches'?

A.

Searches are a standard set of enquiries ordered in the interest of the purchaser, for example a commons registration search. Buyers must consider that, searches deal with facets affecting the legal title.
