Although there are lots of £99 fixed quotes online, how do we find a reputable one? We are trying to find an affordable conveyancing quote.

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many home owners paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many solicitors advertise so-called cheap conveyancing. However extra costs can increase your final bill. Any disbursements to be paid ought to be listed on a quote Any additional fees listed in the terms needs to be fair and clearly defined.

Q.

The local agent has offered a lawyer which they often use. Will it be cheaper to use this firm?

A.

Many agents in Burton Joyce have referral deals with solicitors whereby they refer conveyancing work to them, however, such referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as some agents may 'recommend' the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Will we need a chancel search if we plan to buy in the parish of Whixall?

A.

We have taken out a quote from you. Are there any additional fees?

A.

The legal process can take anywhere between around a month and three months, contingent on various things, like the speed of the seller's property lawyer, or the time taken getting replies to enquiries.

Q.

Can we circumvent paying out for stamp duty on the property?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is usually due on property purchases valued at over one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. Stamp duty mitigation scheme should be treated with extreme caution in Ellesmere. These schemes are often uneconomical and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later.
