Q.

How do we get low cost conveyancing?

A.

Several property lawyers advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional fees may increase your final invoice. Any additional costs included in the small print needs to be fair. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

How can we avoid getting gazumped?

A.

This happens when a lower offer is rejected, following initial acceptance, by the property seller, opting instead for a higher offer. Though gazumping is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a danger. Instructing your conveyancing solicitor as early as possible is a key first step to reducing this risk.

Q.

My mortgage lender is Principality Building Society, what do we need to consider?

Traditionally, most conveyancing solicitors were able to undertake legal work for a lender. Some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, potentially creating increased legal costs for purchasers. Homeward Legal can act on behalf of the vast majority of lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay the lender's legal fees.

Q.

Is there anything we can do to bypass paying out for HMRC stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty is generally due on residential property over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty mitigation should not be considered when purchasing in Golders Green. These schemes are often uneconomical and unreliable. There have been certain legal initiatives, such as disadvantaged area relief, and your solicitor will advise if these may apply.

Q.

How can we learn more data about the Golders Green and Golders Green conservation areas?

A.

English Heritage keep records of the state of conservation areas. Conservation areas in Golders Green including public spaces, loft extensions or plastic box signs are police by Barnet.

Q.

Do I need a homebuyer report?

A.

It is firmly advised that all buyers in Golders Green book a property surveyor. There can be many defects that have a negative impact on a property, including roof spread and poor drainage, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

Is caesium (Cs) often found in Golders Green topsoil?

A.

Soil contamination by industrial waste, including metals, will have occurred in parts of Golders Green. Other sources of contaminated land include water contaminants such as silage and herbicides.

Q.

We are in a contract race situation, and need organise a fast purchase, how could we accelerate our transaction?

A.

Key to a fast conveyancing transaction is to use a communicative property lawyer. There are several tasks you as the buyer can also do to get moving sooner, including, completing all forms as soon as possible, getting your mortgage offer in place and requesting status updates from the property lawyer regularly.
