Q.

I need to find a solicitors firm that offers cheap conveyancing. Can you assist?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many property buyers and sellers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many firms purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional charges may be added into the terms and conditions which unwary property buyers and sellers fail to check. Extra fees which are listed in terms of engagement should be fair. A conveyancing quote should list the disbursements to be paid.Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

I am purchasing a £1042000 East Acton property, what should be worked out for stamp duty tax?

A.

SDLT is calculated with reference to the purchase price. On a £1042000 house, stamp duty will be £52100.

Q.

What does 'fixtures and fittings' mean?

A.

Commonly, there is no strict definition of 'fixtures and fittings'. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This makes a fixtures and fittings form so necessary.

Q.

Is a purchase repossession fee a fee or a disbursement?

A.

A quote will itemise disbursements and fees, clearly stating which is which. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in a quote for your conveyancing.

Q.

We have requested a quote from you. Might there be any extra fees?

A.

Homeward Legal never hide any additional fees for your conveyancing legal work. Be aware that some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, meaning that your final bill could be much higher.

Q.

The estate agent we are using in Parson Cross has suggested the firm of solicitors which they often use. Will it be faster to instruct this solicitor?

A.

Many estate agents will have a referral arrangement with solicitors whereby they refer conveyancing work to them. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, it may be the case that the agent recommends the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

Is contaminated land in East Acton a concern?

A.

East Acton property will be contaminated by a range of factors caused by man and by nature. Contaminants including pollution incidents or proximity to scrap yards will be reported on in environmental search results.

Q.

Will a report on title compiled by the East Acton conveyancing solicitor give details about the amount of council tax on a Band C property before contracts are exchanged?

A.

A property lawyer will liaise with the relevant council to enquire about the latest council tax rates, which will be set out in the report on title. The latest council tax rates for homes in East Acton are listed online at the council site.
