Q.

I need fixed rate conveyancing. How do I get a quote?

A.

Many online and high street law firms promote supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra fees are often hiding in small print. Any disbursements to be paid should also be included on any quote for conveyancing in Harrold Extra fees should be reasonable. They be applicable if the conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

How soon do I need to arrange a solicitor in Harrold?

A.

Simply, the earlier in the process you can instruct a solicitor, the better. The legal work can then commence immediately. Instructing a firm to handle your Harrold conveyancing early for a sale can mean that relevant information can be sourced sooner (this is particularly true for leasehold properties), whereas if you are buying you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer.

Q.

How will the property solicitor in Harrold advise me on the risk and history of flooding in the Harrold area?

A.

An important part of the legal process involves your conveyancer applying for conveyancing searches that offer you details on

the subject of Harrold historical flood risk. In certain cases a Harrold solicitor could possibly advocate an inexpensive (around twenty pounds) and more detailed flood risk search.

Q.

My partner and I are buying in Harrold. How do I find out if the house is in a designated conservation area?

A.

The areas around Harrold include a range of conservation areas. The local authority will be able to advise further about local conservation areas, and the solicitor handling your purchase will discuss the relevant responsibilities.

Q.

Is topsoil in Harrold contaminated by caesium (Cs)?

A.

Even where some contamination has occurred in Harrold, risk levels are usually low. The local authority for Harrold will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

Why does Harrold conveyancing seem to be so slow?

A.

The conveyancing process can be delayed. We appreciate how disruptive they may be and work hard to minimise the effect of these delays by driving the sale or purchase forward.

Q.

Fixtures and fittings refer to which items?

A.

Mainly, fixtures are fixed elements, such as gas or wall-mounted ovens to walls, floors or ceilings securely, whereas fixtures can be more easily removed. 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 completion of a fixtures and fitting form necessary.

Q.

Is it a sensible idea to avoid paying stamp duty to HM Revenue?

A.

Homeward Legal do not recommend any stamp duty reduction scheme. These schemes are often uneconomical and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed meaning that the full stamp duty amount will be payable, with potential fines. There have been a range of government initiatives, however, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'. Your solicitor will advise as to your eligibility.
