Q.

Do you suggest making the effort to avoid paying for stamp duty land tax?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is due for houses valued at over £125,000. Homeward Legal do not recommend home buyers arrange any stamp duty mitigation, as such schemes are costly and very risky.

Does the Hindhead property solicitor in form me about the cost of the council tax on a Band A maisonette prior to completion?

Q.

We are purchasing a Hindhead house with AIB Group, is there anything I need to consider?

A.

Traditionally, most solicitors could act for the majority lenders. Some lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, resulting in increased conveyancing costs for buyers if their property lawyer is unable to act both on their behalf, and for their lender. Homeward Legal will act for many CML-approved lenders.

Q.

We must achieve a very fast sale, does your firm use any fast solicitors in Hindhead ?

A.

Our property lawyers have a highly active approach to concluding the conveyancing work.

Our chosen solicitors approach to conveyancing is different as we use state of the art online completion systems . More importantly , we look after you with a solicitor prepared to communicate up and down the property chain (line of buyers and sellers) .

Q.

We are buying on a brownfield site. It seems that nickel (Ni) soil contamination may be an issue.

A.

Hindhead and the surrounding region has a legacy of chemical contamination. Other sources of contaminated land include radioactive waste.

Q.

When in the process do I need to speak to a conveyancer to act for us?

A.

Whether you are buying or selling in Hindhead, the faster you instruct the better. Some sources advocate postponing instruction until an offer is accepted, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.

Q.

Would it be imprudent to take care of DIY conveyancing without help.

A.

Technically there are no arguments why a home buyer cant go down that route and undertake the bulk of the conveyancing yourself. That said, a conveyancing solicitor is familiar with a large number of skilled tasks ranging from chasing replies to requisitions or collating and preparing contract and package which really need a qualified professional. Moreover solicitors are compelled to carry cover to protect you in the event of any losses you encounter.
