Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? I need a low cost conveyancing quote in Goffs Oak.

A.

Numerous law firms claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Any extra fees found in terms and conditions ought to be reasonable.

Q.

Please advise how to defer paying for stamp duty to HM Revenue?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is usually payable on property sold for more than 125,000 pounds. Homeward Legal firmly advise against any stamp duty mitigation scheme. These schemes are costly and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later and the total stamp duty tax may be payable, along with interest and penalties. There have been a number of legitimate initiatives, however, such as for first-time buyers. Your solicitor will advise as to your eligibility.

Q.

How do you calculate stamp duty rates, and how much do we need to pay on a £716000 home?

A.

The Stamp Duty owed will depend on the purchase price. For a home sold for £716000, SDLT will be £28640 (accurate March 2013).

Q.

What does the Goffs Oak conveyancing lawyer recommend if the house is in a Broxbourne planning authority conservation area and turns out to have unauthorised roof antenna fitted?

A.

Local authority LLC1 searches carried out by your Goffs Oak property lawyer will determine the existence of the appropriate permission for changes to the building.

Q.

Should I select the law firm that works with by my estate agent?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will suggest one or more conveyancing firms. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, there is a risk that an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

May my property legal fees for my Goffs Oak move have any additional fees?

A.

Homeward Legal's solicitors will never charge any additional fees whatsoever. On occasion, a large volume of additional work is necessary, like a lease extension, . Any such fees would not be charged until you were made aware of the circumstances.

Q.

Is a mining search passed on at cost?

A.

It may be unclear if an item on your quote is a disbursement or a fee. This charge, for example, is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on at cost.

Q.

Are there many conservation areas in the area?

A.

Locales deemed to be of architectural merit, such as mining villages, will be recognised as conservation areas. The local council will provide more details about local conservation areas, and the solicitor handling your purchase will confirm potential liability for unauthorised works.
