Q.

We are trying to find a discount conveyancing quote in Hitchin. as we are on a budget.

A.

The confusion over this point catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many law firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Your Hitchin conveyancing quote should state any disbursements to be paid.

Q.

I am purchasing a restored chapel in the parish of Meppershall. Will a chancel search be necessary?

A.

A solicitor instructed to handle the transaction might recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the house being bought is located. Although some parish councils have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on owners of affected property, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish which has not imposed liability will not automatically be the case for future owners.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Hitchin?

A.

Hitchin is located in North Hertfordshire District Council, Council Offices, Gernon Road, Letchworth, Hertfordshire, SG6 3JF, phone: 01462 474 000

Q.

Are costs for obtaining copies of planning permission fees or disbursements?

A.

Every disbursement and fee should be identified on a quote for your conveyancing, with no additional charges of any kind in the terms and conditions. These costs are fees not disbursements. It should be included in your conveyancing quote.

Q.

Why can Hitchin purchase conveyancing have so many delays?

A.

The Hitchin conveyancing process may suffer setbacks for many reasons. Some delays are out of a solicitor's hands. Homeward Legal strive to curtail their cost whenever we can by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible.

Q.

Is a home buyers survey advisable when purchasing a house or flat, regardless of its age?

A.

It is strongly suggested that most purchasers instruct a surveyor. There are many issues that affect a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address, including unsafe chimney circulation or settlement.

Q.

To complete on our purchase ASAP, can we aim for fast conveyancing?

A.

Finding a experienced conveyancing solicitor is crucial to a fast conveyancing transaction. There are numerous tasks you as the purchaser can also do, such as, pushing the conveyancing solicitor to begin enquiries as soon as possible, promptly answering your conveyancing solicitor's questions (by email if possible) and if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can.

Q.

Would you confirm taking precautions to avoid paying HMRC stamp duty?

A.

We firmly advise against any stamp duty mitigation scheme. Such schemes are expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later meaning that the full stamp duty amount, interest and additional fines will be imposed.
