Q.

Please confirm the cheapest fee for a £184,000 home? We are trying to find a low cost conveyancing estimate in Heaton Moor.

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many homeowners paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many firms purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing, however extra fees may pad the solicitor's invoice. Extras should be reasonable and clear and only apply to matters if your conveyancer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Your conveyancing quote ought to define any disbursements to be paid.

Q.

Will the property lawyer in Heaton Moor tell me about the cost of the council tax on a Band B flat prior to completion?

A.

The property solicitor will speak to the Stockport local council to reveal the relevant council tax band and rates, which will then be set out in the title report.

Council tax charges for properties in Heaton Moor are set out online at the Stockport council website. As at, 16 January 2013, rates are:

Is your solicitor team geared up for very fast completions on the legal conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Heaton Moor?

Q.

In the next few we are intending to move from our terraced property in Heaton Moor to a new property in Hale , what is the right point to book a house removal firm?

A.

We usually recommend that home vendors delay until after the contracts have exchanged has occurred as in all probability an agreed move date will not have been confirmed. For a local Greater Manchester company A M & P M Removals, 16 Alvaston Av, Stockport, SK4 4EW Phone: 07980 926859.

Q.

Should I get a homebuyer report?

A.

Homeward Legal heavily advise that all buyers in Heaton Moor arrange a survey. It is a fact that there are a wide range of defects which have a negative impact on a property. These include insect infestation or subsidence, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

Do I need to use the solicitors firm named by the estate agent?

A.

An agent will often suggest a law firm to handle your conveyancing. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, it may be the case that the agent recommends whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best value for you.

Q.

How do I circumvent paying stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty mitigation should not be considered, as such schemes are expensive and unreliable. There have been certain legitimate initiatives, however, such as for first-time buyers. A conveyancing solicitor should confirm whether you are eligible.

Q.

We are going to purchase with Nationwide - is there anything I need to know?

A.

Recently, a number of lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them. This can mean increased conveyancing costs for buyers. Homeward Legal can act for many UK mortgage lenders, ensuring that an additional preferred solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.
