Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

This point catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms advertise so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra charges will be included in the small print. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

Unforeseeable personal circumstances mean we really need to complete on the sale of a flat in a very limited time, do you any particularly fast Goodmayes conveyancing solicitors ?

A.

Our conveyancing property lawyers typically have a completely speed focused approach when conducting the legal work.

Our approach is different as we use advanced practice management systems . Critically we always allocate you a solicitor practiced at communicate from the start to the end of the buyer and seller property chain .

Q.

My lender is Santander - is there anything we need to consider?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', which may result in higher legal costs for property buyers. Homeward Legal, though, are able to act for most lenders in the UK to ensure that you will not need to pay your lender's legal costs.

Q.

What will the Goodmayes conveyancing lawyer do if the flat is situated in a conservation area and has unapproved PVC windows added?

A.

Local authority searches conducted by your Goodmayes property lawyer during the conveyancing process will find out if the property is within a designated conservation area and any evidence of consent for additions to the property will be supplied. If no local authority consents can be provided, the solicitor will inform you of all options which can include requesting an indemnity insurance or seeking retrospective approval from Redbridge local authority.

Q.

Can I check if a house is in one of Goodmayes's designated conservation areas?

A.

With 9000 conservation areas throughout the country, the streets and neighbourhoods in or near Goodmayes will include a number of areas of 'special architectural and historic interest' designated as protected. The local council will offer more information about local conservation areas, and the conveyancing solicitor handling your purchase will discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.

Q.

How long on average will it take my assigned conveyancing solicitor to carry out the conveyancing process on a semi detached recently developed building?

A.

It can take anywhere from 1 month to three months, which can be affected by a number of issues for example the efficiency of the sellers solicitor, or whether your solicitor has to act for your lender.

Q.

How is Stamp Duty Land Tax rates worked out, and what should we budget for a £397000 home?

A.

The SDLT payable will depend on the valuation. Stamp duty will be £11910 on a £397000 house or flat in Goodmayes.*

Q.

How can I go about determine if the conservation area is neglected?

A.

Local conservation areas are created by the local Redbridge planning authority, who govern conservation area concerns from including things like ugly parking meters, the painting of houses and paths and footpaths. English Heritage, a government body, have put together records of the condition of conservation areas in England.
