Q.

Although there are lots of £99 fixed quotes online, how do we find a reputable one? I am looking for a fixed rate conveyancing estimate.

A.

Many property lawyers offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, but additional fees will be included in the terms and conditions. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

I have to achieve a rapid sale, does Homeward Legal employ fast Heston property lawyers ?

A.

Our firm always take a speed focused plan of attack to completing the transfer of title as quickly as possible.

Our property lawyers work fast and try to communicate up and down the buyer and seller property chain and implement cutting edge local authority and land registry integrated and information technology systems to push through the property sale as quickly as possible.

Q.

Can you recommend how I avoid paying out for SDLT?

A.

SDLT is usually due for residential property over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty avoidance should not be considered when purchasing in Heston. Such schemes are highly expensive and often likely to fail.

Q.

How might conveyancing work for a sale in Heston require weeks?

A.

The conveyancing process could suffer setbacks for a variety of reasons. In some cases, the reasons are out of the solicitor's control, Homeward Legal, however, know how much extra stress these can cause and strive to diminish their cost by driving the transaction forward. Delays can include difficulties with mortgage finance.

Q.

How do I protect my offer from gazumping?

A.

Gazumping is widespread both in Heston, and across North London and describes circumstances where a house seller approves a purchaser's offer, only to later reject it in favour of a better offer. Although being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a risk. Instructing an efficient solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer is a key first step to reducing this risk.

Q.

What are 'fixtures and fittings'?

A.

There is no clear definition of fixtures and fittings, which can often lead to conflict post-completion. Fixtures and fittings are regularly not considered, making the approval of the list of fixtures and fittings essential.

Q.

Is Homeward Legal experienced enough to 1 month completions on the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Heston?

A.

Yes - The legal team deal with auctions throughout the UK and often handle the legal work for auction buyers and sellers. Our solicitors have worked for many successful bidders at regional 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 at auction always get a SRA regulated lawyer as rapidly as possible for a detailed report of the sellers legal pack before the property auction.

Thereafter, following the auction day itself your property lawyer is absolutely geared up to finishing all of the legal work within a as tight time frame as usually required by the terms if sale.

Q.

How early do we need to get a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

In simple terms, as soon as possible, as there are a number of tasks that can be performed straight away. Early instruction of a firm for a sale allows prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers, whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.
