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.

When should you get a solicitor in Hertford?

A.

Whether you are buying or selling in Hertford, earlier is preferable. Instructing a conveyancing solicitor to handle your Hertford conveyancing early for a sale enables paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found, whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.

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.

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.

We are aiming to purchase a home, do we need 'conveyancing searches'?

A.

Searches are an accepted set of queries carried out on behalf of the purchaser, including a limestone search. These searches do give much needed information and context, but refer to the legal condition of the property's title.

Q.
