Is a PI contribution a disbursement or fee?

All fees and disbursements ought to be identified on a quote for your conveyancing. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in a quote.

Q.

My estate agent has put forward the lawyer. Will it be more cost-effective to instruct them?

A.

Many estate agents have referral deals with solicitors whereby they refer work to them. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, it may be the case that the agent recommends whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.

Yes - our property solicitors often act for auction buyers and sellers. Solicitors often suggest auction buyers to choose a fast lawyer well before the date of the auction to give enough time for a thorough investigation of the property's legal title. Thereafter, following the auction day arrives your experienced conveyancing lawyer is utterly focused on completing the legal side of things within 4 weeks as conventionally required by the terms of sale.

Q.

Are there any conservation areas in Hollywood?

A.

There are several conservation areas around Hollywood. You may wish to contact the council for more information, but your conveyancing lawyer will investigate this in detail.

Q.

Is it a bad idea to bypass paying SDLT rates?

A.

Stamp duty mitigation scheme is not advised when buying in Hollywood. Such schemes are expensive and can be very unlikely to succeed.
