Q.

How do we identify a genuinely cheap fee? We are trying to find low cost conveyancing.

A.

Many property lawyers offer supposedly cheap conveyancing. Often additional costs are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

Is Homeward Legal experienced enough to complete within 28 days of exchange on the conveyancing for property auction properties in Halstead?

A.

The legal team prepare legal packs for vendors and frequently work for bidders at auction. It is sensible for buyers to pick an experienced conveyancing lawyer as ahead of time as they can for a detailed review of the legal papers for the lot before the auction day arrives.

Following the auction day your selected lawyer is focused on concluding the legal work inside a month as typically required by the terms of sale.

Q.

If I am intending to buy near Halstead, in the parish of Cransford, do we need a chancel search?

A.

A solicitor responsible for your move is likely to recommend a chancel search. In Halstead's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on new owners of a property where church councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Sudden financial circumstances dictate that we have to complete on the sale of a share of freehold flat within 6 weeks, do Homeward Legal work with any fast home moving solicitors in Halstead ?

A.

Our lawyers have a proactive approach to concluding the legal work for sellers as quickly as possible.

With Homeward Legal, firm always communicate through the whole of the buyer and seller chain and employ leading edge document production systems to complete on the legal process fast.

Q.

Can you recommend how to circumvent paying HMRC stamp duty?

A.

We do not recommend any form of stamp duty reduction, because these schemes are expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed and the total stamp duty tax may be payable.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a Forties end of terrace Band B dwelling in Halstead?

A.

The relevant band will typically be detailed within the title report, as well as by the local council. The latest council tax charges for residents of Halstead are listed on the Braintree local authority site. Currently, 12 August 2012, the different rates are:

  • Band A - £990.00
  • Band B - £1,155.00
  • Band C - £1,320.00
  • Band D - £1,485.00
  • Band E - £1,815.00
  • Band F - £2,145.00
  • Band G - £2,475.00
  • Band H - £2,970.00

Q.

What do we need to know about fixtures and fittings?

A.

Commonly, there is not a legal definition of fixtures and fittings. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This can make the clarification of any difference of opinion so important.

Q.
