Q.

How do we get low cost conveyancing?

A.

Lack of clarity over this topic catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers offer cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra fees will be included in the terms and conditions which unwary buyers and sellers fail to check. Any fees ought to be fair and clearly defined and be applied only where your solicitor must complete additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Which factors are key to get fast conveyancing?

A.

Key to a fast completion is to employing a proactive, diligent solicitor. There are a range of things you can do, including, answering any queries raised by the solicitor as soon as possible, organising your finances, including arranging a mortgage and calling or emailing your solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays.

Q.

At what point is it wise to instruct a conveyancing solicitor?

Whether you are buying or selling in Elmers End, the earlier in the process you can instruct a solicitor, the better. The legal work can then start immediately. Instructing your solicitor sooner can reduce any chance of the sale or purchase falling though.

Q.

Does homewardlegal.co.uk get involved in auction conveyancing in Elmers End?

A.

Yes - We are very capable working with auction buyers and sellers. Often specialist buildings for example those with expensive covenants, are included in auctions which tend to will want extra legwork by the conveyancing lawyer. Solicitors therefore suggest that buyers formally instruct a good lawyer well before the auction day to allow sufficient time for a full review of the lot.

Thereafter, following the date of the auction your chosen lawyer is completely geared up to completing the legal side of things within the limited time as required .

Q.

What are our options if we buy a semi detached house in a Bromley council conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the legal process involves the making of enquiries of the local authority to confirm conservation area status and the appropriate consent for any modifications. Should no appropriate permissions be produced the solicitor will advise you of all options for example obtaining an indemnity insurance policy or requesting retrospective consent from Bromley local authority.

Q.

How is SDLT calculated?

A.

The Stamp Duty that is payable depends on the valuation. It will be £29160 on a £729k property (source: www.hmrc.gov.uk, August 2012).

Q.

What should we do regarding strontium soil contamination in Elmers End?

A.

Government policy is in place to control pollution, waste, water and chemical contamination. Other sources of contaminated land include groundwater contaminants like hydrocarbons.

Q.

Can you recommend how we avoid paying SDLT rates?

A.

We firmly advise against any stamp duty mitigation scheme. Such schemes are often uneconomical and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.
