Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? We need a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Hertford.

A.

Numerous solicitors promote supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional charges will be included in the small print. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

In the next month we are hoping to be finally moving from our semi detached house in Hertford into our next house in Hemel Hempstead , at what stage to choose a home removal firm?

A.

Best advice is to wait before making arrangements with the removals company until the point where all parties have agreed an absolute completion date which commonly occurs once signing of contracts. For a local firm Movers Not Shakers, 7 Grove Walk, Hertford, SG14 3HH Telephone: 07875 076948 or Palmer Nick, 33 Foxes Cl, Hertford, SG13 7UA on 01992 581530.

Q.

The agent has referred a lawyer whom they usually use. Is it advisable to instruct them?

A.

It is common practice for estate agents to suggest a conveyancer. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, some agents choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

Are you experienced enough to 1 month completions on the conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Hertford?

A.

Yes - Indeed we are property auction specialists and do frequently work for bidders at auction. Our niche auction team of solicitors and conveyancers have been instructed by countless vendors at local property auctions including Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Prepared buyers know to pick a qualified property lawyer as ahead of time as possible to give enough time for a full investigation of the auction legal pack well in advance of the date of the auction.

Post auction day arrives your lawyer is utterly prepared for briskly completing the purchase within 4 weeks as conventionally required .

Q.

In what ways can a conveyancing solicitor in Hertford report back on the risk of flooding in the Hertford area for an investment property I am buying?

A.

Your solicitor will apply for formal conveyancing searches that incorporate Hertford area flood risk data.

Q.

Do you state taking action to circumvent paying HMRC stamp duty?

A.

SDLT is generally payable on homes priced at over one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. We strongly advise against any form of stamp duty reduction. These schemes are expensive and can be very unlikely to succeed. There have been several government initiatives, however, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers. A conveyancing solicitor should confirm whether you are eligible.

Q.

What will our conveyancing searches cost?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches can vary greatly, depending on the searches required by your lender. Searches are paid to a third party.

Q.

Why could conveyancing take weeks to complete?

A.

Conveyancing can be drawn out. Homeward Legal know how stressful these delays can be and do our best to reduce the effect of these delays by proactively handling all enquiries.
