Q.

How do we get a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

Several solicitors promote cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra fees will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Extra costs included in terms and conditions needs to be fair and clearly defined. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

I am purchasing a 1950's property, should we have conveyancing searches ordered?

A.

Conveyancing searches are a standard set of queries carried out on behalf of the purchaser, which may include a search of the Index Map, and only deal with legal-related matters.

Q.

What can a Fenny Stratford conveyancing lawyer do if the property we hope to buy is inside the boundary of a registered conservation area and has unseemly stone cladding added?

A.

Your instructed solicitor will always establish whether the property is inside a conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have requisite permissions from the local authority.

Q.

At what stage should a home mover set up a removal van?

A.

Best practice is to put off arranging a removal firm until everyone has settled a formal date which typically occurs after contracts are signed.

Many house removals firms may charge a cancellation charge . For a local firm Woburn Sands Removal Ltd, Unit 11 Acorn Building/Bilton Rd, Bletchley, Milton Keynes, MK1 1HW Telephone: 01908 639395 or Bletchley Removals, 53A Aylesbury St, Bletchley, Milton Keynes, MK2 2BH on 01908 270222.

Q.

Do your solicitors have experience with residential property auction conveyancing in Fenny Stratford?

A.

Homeward Legal is used to working with buyers at auction. It is not unusual for specialist lots are sold in auctions and these need further examination. We therefore advise that auction buyers appoint a SRA regulated conveyancing solicitor well before the property auction date to allow adequate time for a review of the auction pack. Immediately following the auction day itself your selected lawyer is utterly geared up to concluding all of the legal work in a month as typically required .

Q.

For what reason does sale conveyancing work take so long?

A.

The legal work undertaken to transfer a property in Fenny Stratford could suffer setbacks. We see how frustrating such delays may be and endeavour to minimise the cost of these delays wherever a difference can be made.

Q.

How many weeks should I expect it to take my designated lawyer to complete all of the conveyancing formalities on a semi detached new build property we are intending to purchase?

A.

The process can take anywhere from 3 weeks and three months based on any number of issues e.g. the efficiency of the vendor's property lawyer, or whether additional searches are required.

Q.

Can we get out of paying HMRC stamp duty?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is payable on houses priced at over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty mitigation scheme should be treated with extreme caution. These schemes are costly and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later imposing fines and reviewing all your revenue matters. There have been a small number of official schemes, such as for first-time buyers.
