Q.

How do we get a discount conveyancing quote in Henlow?

A.

Many firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing. Often extra charges will be included in the terms of engagement. Any costs found in your solicitor's terms should be reasonable. They come into force only if the conveyancer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Would you advise making the effort to circumvent paying out for stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

Homeward Legal do not recommend buyers risk any stamp duty mitigation. These schemes are highly expensive and often likely to fail. There have been several government initiatives, however, such as for first-time buyers.

Q.

As a consequence of the fact that last year was second wettest year since records began I am thinking that environmental searches might not be detailed enough?

A.

Property conveyancing searches carried out by your conveyancing solicitor in Henlow should include a more in depth search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.

Q.

Sudden financial circumstances dictate that we need to complete on the sale of our refurbished home in under 30 days, do Homeward Legal have any especially fast solicitors in Henlow ?

Our property lawyers have a very proactive approach when fulfilling the conveyancing work to meet the clients needs.

Homeward Legals panel of solicitors approach to conveyancing is different as we have invested in the latest HMRC and Land Registry integrated systems . We give you carefully selected solicitor who will always communicate with all parties in the buyer and seller chain e.g. other sellers agents, to fulfil a fast conclusion.

Q.

Does Henlow include any areas of conservation?

A.

Locales deemed to be of 'special architectural and historic interest', such as historic transport links, will be designated as conservation areas. Henlow itself is named as a conservation area. These restrictions can result in the buyer inheriting liability of unauthorised changes, but the benefits will include protection for trees and other flora. Your conveyancing solicitor will be able to provide more details.

Q.

The current owner looks to have added conspicuous removal of chimney stacks on the property which I think may defy Three Mills conservation area criteria.

A.

A conveyancing solicitor will make enquiries to establish if the property is located within a designated conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have the appropriate permissions from the Central Bedfordshire planning authority.

Q.

When do you need to instruct a conveyancer to handle our purchase?

A.

In simple terms, the sooner you instruct a firm, the better. The legal work can then begin straight away. A number of sources suggest holding off instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but you will then be at a serious disadvantage in the event of a contract race, or buyer eager to move quickly.

Q.

How can we determine Stamp Duty Land Tax rates, and how much should it be on a £1023000 home?

A.

SDLT will depend on a limited set of factors, primarily the value of the house. It will be £51150 on a £1023000 home.*
