Q.

We are looking for a cheap solicitor for selling a leasehold property. What should be watch out for?

A.

Many law firms offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. Often additional costs may be added into small print. Busy, stressed sellers ignore these terms at their peril. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

How is stamp duty assessed and how much do we need to pay on a £296000 property?

A.

The Stamp Duty Land Tax you must pay is dependent on the valuation. It will be £8880 on a £296000 house or flat.

Q.

How early is it appropriate to arrange a conveyancing solicitor to act on our purchase?

A.

With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, as soon as possible. The legal work can then commence straight away. Early instruction of a firm to act on your Huyton sale or purchase for a purchase allows you will the details of your Huyton solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if

you are selling a property, relevant information can be sourced sooner (this is particularly true for leasehold properties).

Q.

Why can conveyancing in Huyton take so long? Isn't it just filing paperwork?

A.

Conveyancing will sometimes suffer setbacks even in the best of circumstances. In some cases, the causes are out of the solicitor's hands, Homeward Legal, however, appreciate how disruptive they may be and do our best to minimise the consequences of these delays by pushing all parties involved. Common delays may include difficulties with mortgage finance.

Q.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like curtains?

A.

Generally speaking, there is not a strict definition of 'fixtures and fittings'. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

When buying a 1940s property within a conservation area in Huyton, how does one get information in relation to the state of repair?

A.

English Heritage have produced a list of the state of repair of conservation areas in addition to the trend of the area.

Local conservation areas are created by Knowsley who oversee things like building materials to the halting of derelict buildings.

Q.

Can Huyton brownfield land soil still be contaminated?

A.

Huyton's local area has a history of contamination from agriculture or industry, like much of the UK. The local authority for Huyton will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

Should I select a solicitor referred by the agent?

A.

The agent will often endorse a conveyancing firm. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, an agent may decide to recommend the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.
