Q.

I need fixed rate Finchley conveyancing, we are on a tight budget.

A.

Several law firms advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra costs may be added into the solicitor's terms. Busy, stressed sellers and buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Any extra costs listed in your solicitor's terms ought to be fair. They only apply to matters if your lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Would you confirm looking into how to bypass paying for SDLT?

A.

Homeward Legal do not advise home buyers undertake any stamp duty scheme. Such schemes are highly expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed .

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if we plan to purchase in the parish of Fulham St John, near Finchley?

A.

Regardless of the Finchley parish you are purchasing in, the solicitor could advise that a chancel search is taken out. Although some Parochial Church Councils have taken the decision to charge chancel repairs on the owners of affected property, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish which has not imposed liability will not be so in future, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Despite that legal practices need to get insurance cover to protect you in the event of losses you encounter made by the lawyer.
