Q.

How do we get a cheap solicitor in Hermitage to buy a home?

A.

Both high-street and online conveyancers purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing. However additional fees are often hiding in the small print. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Which individual property conveyancing searches should a Hermitage lawyer order on a Hermitage flat?

A.

The standard procedure is to get Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental and perhaps special local Hermitage searches, like a Planning and local information.

Q.

Should I select the solicitor named by the estate agent?

A.

Many agents in Lower Sunbury have arrangements with solicitors where they refer clients, however, these referrals need to be considered carefully, as an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

We are planning to sell our jointly owned house in a hurry at a Berkshire property auction, does your company have fast solicitors in Hermitage ?

Our firm adopt a very efficient approach when completing the legal process as quickly as possible.

Homeward Legals solicitors work quickly and will always attempt to communicate from the start to the end of the buyer and seller chain and implement leading edge online completion and technology systems to exchange on your sale swiftly.

Q.

Do fixtures and fittings include things like lampshades?

A.

Generally speaking, fixtures are fixed to floors, walls and ceilings and fixtures are free-standing items, like bookcases. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

Is a building survey advisable when purchasing a home in Hermitage?

A.

It is highly recommended that the majority of purchasers in Hermitage arrange a house surveyor to carry out a survey. There can be a range of defects that affect a property. These can include severe weathering or poor drainage, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

What can we do to avoid paying for stamp duty land tax?

A.

Stamp duty is generally payable for houses priced at over one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. Stamp duty mitigation is not advised. Such schemes are costly and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later.

Q.

Do you have good solicitors that deal with the legal conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Hermitage?

A.

Yes - Homeward Legal is very competent with auction buyers and sellers. Conventionally specialist lots are bought in property auctions and these will want increased exploration. Solicitors therefore advocate that buyers choose a fast lawyer in advance of the auction for a full review of the sellers documents.

Immediately following the property auction your Homeward Legal lawyer is wholly ready for finishing the legal side of things within the reduced time frame as usually required by the terms if sale.
