Q.

I am trying to find a low cost conveyancing quote, we are on a tight budget.

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many property buyers and sellers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many solicitors purport to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs are often hiding in small print.

How do we defer paying stamp duty to the Revenue?

SDLT is due for property sold for over £125,000. We do not recommend any stamp duty reduction scheme. These schemes are highly expensive and unreliable.

Q.

Should I instruct the solicitor who generally works with by my estate agent in Ormesby?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will often refer a solicitor, however, such 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 the best solicitor for your needs.
