Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £245k residence?

A.

Several conveyancers offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, but additional costs can increase your final invoice. Additional fees should be fair and reasonable and be applicable solely where the conveyancer is required to complete unexpected extra work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The disbursements to be paid should be included on a conveyancing quote. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

How do you work out stamp duty, and how much will it be on a £536000 property?

A.

SDLT in Gospel Oak is calculated with reference to the purchase price. On a £536000 property, stamp duty will be £21440.

Q.

Dunfermline Building Society is our lender - what will we need to know?

A.

When arranging a mortgage, a mortgage provider will need legal work to be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. Buyers should be aware that a small number of lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating greater conveyancing costs for property buyers. We are able to act for most lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay legal fees for your lender's solicitor.

Q.

How long will it take my property solicitor to complete all of the legal process for a semi detached forties property we are purchasing?

A.

Completion can take anywhere between one month and three months dependent on any number of factors, for example the speed of the seller's conveyancer, or contentious issues that may arise.

Q.

Should we select a solicitors firm suggested by my agent?

A.

The agent will be able to pressure a conveyancing solicitor they refer many clients to, and can therefore encourage a solicitor to complete sooner. These referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as it may be the case that the agent recommends the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

Will we need to get a chancel liability search if you are buying a residence by a 1400s priory in Gospel Oak?

A.

In Gospel Oak, some owners can be required to contribute towards the cost of upkeep of churches. A chancel search checks that such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary.

Q.

In a few months we are going to be moving out of our period property in Gospel Oak into our next building in Chalk Farm , what is the right point to appoint a removal company?

A.

Most conveyancers will recommend that house movers put off arranging removals until the point where exchange of contracts because a date wont have been agreed. If you are looking for a local company try Camden Man And Van, 21/21/Kingsford Street, London, NW5 4JT Telephone: 020 3411 9930.

Q.

I am on a limited budget - Will doing the conveyancing on a DIY basis without a Gospel Oak property lawyer possibly save any cash?

A.

It can possible to do the conveyancing unaided. However, a conveyancing solicitor is in charge of a huge number of exercises e.g. chasing completion statements or checking for any restrictive covenants which really need a skilled professional. Nonetheless legal firms are required by their regulator to obtain acceptable cover that protects you from any professional errors.
