Q.

How do I get the best rates for conveyancing for a £470,000 house?

A.

Numerous law firms claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional costs may be added into the small print that sellers and buyers often do not check. Costs needs to be fair and clearly defined. They only apply to matters if the lawyer must complete additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements to be paid should also be clearly stated on your quote

Q.

Please explain why sale conveyancing takes such a long time?

A.

The conveyancing process will occasionally take more time than budgeted, Homeward Legal, however, seek to reduce the consequences of these delays whenever we can. Delays include a slow firm acting for the lender.

Q.

Which environmental factors can contaminate land in Herne Bay. Are they an issue?

A.

Numerous of contaminants may lessen the value of residential property in Herne Bay, like potentially contaminative use of nearby land and proximity to scrap yards. An environmental search will reveal this in more detail.

Q.

Can we get out of paying stamp duty to HM Revenue?

A.

We do not recommend any stamp duty scheme. These schemes are costly and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later and the total stamp duty tax may be payable, along with interest and penalties. There have been certain official schemes, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers, and your solicitor will advise if these may apply.

Q.

Which specific conveyancing searches will a lawyer in Herne Bay apply for when acting on a Herne Bay house?

A.

The regular legal procedure will be to get Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal), Environmental and Coal Mining Search and perhaps unique particular e.g. a Land charge Searches.

With Homeward Legal, chosen solicitors work quickly and attempt to communicate end to end throughout the chain buyer and seller chain and use advanced practice management technology to finish your house move asap.

Q.

We have found an increasing number helpful resources all about by passing the solicitor. Do I need to spend money on a property lawyer in Herne Bay ?

A.

There is absolutely no argument why you cant apply this approach and conceivably complete the legal work without the help of a trained Herne Bay property solicitor. In reality however, a solicitor carries out a large array of actions e.g. approving completion statements and apportioning service charges most of which really need a qualified solicitor. Fundamentally have a go conveyancers do not have acceptable indemnity insurance which practicing solicitors are made responsible to pay for.

Q.

Having heard about the Met Office warning of more intense rainfall, I am apprehensive that conveyancing searches (environmental) aren't exacting enough?

A.

Flood searches applied for by the Herne Bay solicitor will also include a far more rigorous search (Landmark) if required.

If you are still concerned try to speak to a next door neighbour.
