Q.

How do I find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Many online and high street conveyancers offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often additional charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

My local agent has referred a law firm which they often use. Will it be more cost-effective to use this solicitor?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers may suggest a conveyancer. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, the agent may recommend the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

Our purchase is completing in September, what will be calculated for stamp duty tax?

A.

Stamp Duty will depend on the valuation. For a home bought for £461000, SDLT will be £13830 (correct March 2013).

Q.

Do you state looking into how to circumvent paying stamp duty land tax?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is generally payable for purchases over one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. Homeward Legal do not recommend any stamp duty scheme. These schemes are expensive and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed. There have been several legitimate initiatives, however, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'.

Q.

How long on average will it take for my assigned property lawyer to handle all of the conveyancing work on a maisonette in a recently developed building?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere between a month and three months, which can be hampered by a number of issues for example the speed of the vendor's property lawyer, or contentious issues that may arise.

Q.

Do we need a chancel liability search if we are purchasing a home by parish land in Gamston?

A.

Property owners in a neighbourhood near church property in the locality must contribute towards the cost of repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including the Title Register database. Churches in Gamston where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Peter.

Q.

For a fast exchange and completion on the purchase of a £972,000 residence, what can we do to speed up the conveyancing process?

A.

Many buyers will, correctly, argue that contacting a experienced property lawyer is essential to a fast transaction. There are several things you can do to speed up the process, including, requesting regular updates from your property lawyer and keep the pressure on, completing all forms as soon as possible and arranging any finances require to complete the purchase.

Q.

What does a Gamston property solicitor recommend if the maisonette we hope to invest in is inside a conservation area in Bassetlaw planning authority that may have ill-suited doors added?

A.

Bassetlaw council LLC1 searches conducted by your Gamston property lawyer during the conveyancing process should confirm the existence of the appropriate council approval for any development to the building. In the absence of any consents the solicitor will inform you of all options, which include getting from Bassetlaw planning authority or buying an indemnity policy.
