Q.

How do I get a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

Several firms promote so-called cheap conveyancing, but extra charges can inflate the final bill. Costs which are listed in terms of engagement should be fair and reasonable and be applied only where the conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements ought to be defined on the conveyancing quote. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

If I am purchasing a house next to a 16th Century vicarage in Hoxton, is it important that I get a chancel search?

A.

Property owners near to a church in the area are expected to contribute towards repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. A solicitor will be able to advise further. Hoxton church properties which may give rise to chancel liability include Holy Trinity, St Anne with St Columba, and St John's Church.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Hoxton?

Hoxton is located in London Borough of Hackney Council, Hackney Service Centre, 1 Hillman Street, London, E8 1DY, phone: 020 8356 3000

Q.

Can you address how to avoid paying stamp duty land tax?

A.

We firmly advise against any form of stamp duty reduction. These schemes are expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later. There have been a number of government initiatives, such as disadvantaged area relief. A conveyancing solicitor should confirm whether you are eligible.

Q.

What causes the conveyancing work to take so long?

A.

Conveyancing will sometimes be subject to numerous interruptions or delays. Homeward Legal work hard to minimise the cost of these delays whenever we can by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible.

Q.

What effect will HS2 have on Small Heath property?

A.

HS2 is likely to affect some property in Small Heath's local authority. A Local Authority search will address planning matters within the immediate neighbourhood of a home purchase, but other searches are available which cover a wider radius around the route, and give more detail.

Q.

Does homewardlegal.co.uk advise on the conveyancing for auction properties in Hoxton?

A.

We are able to act on residential property auction procedures. Often unusually constructed houses e. g. residential investments, are bought in auctions which necessitate increased. We therefore encourage that buyers formally appoint a residential conveyancing solicitor prior to the date of the auction to allow enough time for a title report of the auction legal pack,

Thereafter, following the date of the auction your instructed lawyer is absolutely geared up to swiftly completing the purchase in the limited time as required .

Q.

My estate agent has named a conveyancing solicitor who they generally use. Do I need to instruct this firm?

A.

Many agents in Small Heath have arrangements with solicitors whereby they refer work. Such referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.
