How do I find a discount conveyancing quote?


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.


Can you advise how to bypass paying for SDLT?


We do not recommend any stamp duty reduction scheme, as such schemes are costly and unreliable. There have been a number of legal initiatives, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'. A conveyancing solicitor should confirm whether you are eligible.


What is the council tax on a Sixties converted house in Goodmayes?


Usually a report on title should give detail the Redbridge council tax band.

Do I need a Homebuyer Report for the house purchase?


The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors firmly recommend that you book a property surveyor. There can be a wide range of issues which have a negative impact on a property, which include failed double glazing or ground movement, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.


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


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.


Will the fixtures and fittings include items such as cupboards?


Commonly, there is no absolute definition of fixtures and fittings. Fixtures and fittings are frequently not considered, making early agreement of the list of items included with the purchase so essential.


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


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