Q.

How do I find low cost conveyancing?

A.

Both high-street and online law firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional costs may pad the solicitor's invoice. Extra charges should be fair and reasonable. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid ought to be defined on a quote. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

How do we hold off paying stamp duty?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) commonly must be paid on property valued at over 125,000 pounds. Homeward Legal strongly advise against any stamp duty scheme. These schemes are often uneconomical and unreliable. There have been a number of government-sponsored schemes, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers.

Q.

In a few weeks I am likely to move out of our period property in Hampstead to our next home in Camden Town . What is the optimum stage to select a removals firm?

A.

Most solicitors will advise that home movers put off booking a removals company until the point where the contracts have exchanged because it is likely that an absolute home moving date wont have been settled. For a local Camden firm Cupboard Love Vans, Wellside/Well Walk, London, NW3 1BT Telephone: 0845 460 1160 or A Man With A Van, 176 Finchley Rd, London, NW3 6BT on 07956 006537.

Q.

Environmental searches may be standard procedure for home buyers but when one considers recent events for instance the Met Office warning of more intense rainfall in the future are they sufficient to advise us enough about the risk of flooding in Hampstead?

A.

A competent conveyancing solicitor in Hampstead should always include informative conveyancing searches if the standard conveyancing searches flag up any kind of Hampstead flooding risk.

For extra area background perhaps you could contact a close neighbour.

Q.

What kind of fact finding regarding the risk of possible flooding around Camden will a conveyancing solicitor in Hampstead scrutinise?

A.

A residential property conveyancer conducts standard formal environmental searches that should include Hampstead flood risk area data. On (13-Jun-12) there were no warnings around the River Lee at Harpenden at the The River Lee at Luton, Harpenden including Wheathampstead and East Hyde

Q.

Will the property legal fees cover any additional costs?

A.

No. We do not hide any additional fees. Some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

Q.

Is a Homebuyer Report required when we are purchasing a property, irrespective of its condition?

A.

It is recommended that home buyers arrange a house surveyor. It is a fact that there are many concerns that can negatively affect a property. These include poor ventilation. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

If we are buying a property close by a 1200s vicarage in Hampstead, would you advise that I get a chancel search?

A.

Where land in Hampstead was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to cover the cost of repairs to nearby church land. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Hampstead property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. A conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise further. Hampstead Church of England properties where chancel liability may apply include All Hallows, Christ Church and St John.
