Q.

We need to find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors. What should be watch out for?

A.

This matter affects many property buyers and sellers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process, and many property lawyers offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Busy, stressed property buyers and sellers ignore these terms at their peril. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We are buying a 1950s flat within a Fleet conservation area, how does one find data in respect of the state of repair?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, now maintain a list of the condition of conservation areas.

Conservation areas are designated by the local Hart planning authority, who maintain everything from street furniture to ugly shop fronts.

Q.

How much can the charge for my conveyancing searches be?

A.

With Homeward Legal's conveyancing service, clients buying in Fleet expected to pay at a maximum £249 for a standard bundle of searches. Conveyancing searches are disbursements.

Q.

Are the many areas of conservation in Fleet likely to affect us?

A.

Locales deemed to be of architectural or historic interest, such as 18th century suburbs, will be designated as areas of conservation. A solicitor will confirm potential liability for unauthorised works and be able to offer more information.

Q.

How do we avoid paying SDLT rates?

A.

Stamp duty reduction scheme should be treated with extreme caution in Fleet, as such schemes are expensive and can be very unlikely to succeed.

Q.

Does the High Speed 2 route affect Hazlemere properties?

A.

HS2 will impact property in the local authority of Chiltern District. An HS2 search aims to find, and estimate the impact of, the nearest above and underground points on the line to a property.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Fleet?

A.

Q.

We are buying a property where the seller has fitted dormer windows to the maisonette in Fleet which I think might break local conservation area criteria

A.

The lawyer will always establish whether the property is within a conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have the appropriate consent from the local council. In the event that no appropriate consents can be provided, the solicitor will give you professional advice on the best alternative which can include requesting an indemnity policy or seeking retrospective permission from the planning authority.
