Q.

How do we get a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many property buyers and sellers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many firms offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges will be included in small print. Excited property buyers and sellers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Applicable disbursements should also be clearly stated on your conveyancing quote

Q.

Handling the legal work by bypassing a Frant conveyancing solicitor looks to be possible when buying and selling a house. However really be an unrealistic idea ?

A.

Hypothetically speaking there is absolutely no argument why you cant embark on the legal work on your own.

That said, a conveyancing solicitor typically handles a huge number of jobs such as approving pre exchange checklists or communicating with managing agents some of which require training. In addition legal firms must have insurance cover that protects you in the event of failures.

Q.

What length of time should I expect it to take the property solicitor to conduct all of the conveyancing formalities on the top floor of Regency house we are purchasing?

It can take anywhere between one month and twelve weeks, which can be affected by various issues e.g. the efficiency of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or the speed of managing agents.

Q.

Do your solicitors administer the conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Frant?

A.

Yes - our property solicitors often do the legal conveyancing buyers at auction. Lawyers invariably suggest purchasers to choose the conveyancing firm in advance of the property auction to allow for a thorough review.

Subsequently, immediately after the actual auction your appointed property conveyancing lawyer is thoroughly prepared for completing all of the legal work in the limited time frame as required .

Q.

Which individual searches does my Frant conveyancer apply for on a Frant building?

A.

The regular conveyancing protocol is to get these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environment Search and Gypsum Mining Search and perhaps specific searches e.g. a Commons Registration Search.

Q.

Can we avoid paying out for HMRC stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty is usually due for homes priced at over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty scheme is not advised, as such schemes are expensive and unreliable. There have been a number of government initiatives, however, such as for first-time buyers.

Q.

How is Stamp Duty Land Tax calculated in Frant and how much should we pay on a £322000 property?

A.

The Stamp Duty payable depends on the value of the property. Stamp duty will be £9660 on a £322000 home.*
