Q.

How do we get low cost conveyancing?

A.

Various solicitors offer cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms which sellers and buyers may have not read carefully Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What kind of fact finding in connection with the potential risk of a flood at Essex will a conveyancer in Ilford advise us on for a Victorian property we are intending to purchase?

A.

An experienced conveyancing lawyer makes an application for official conveyancing and environmental searches that should include Ilford historical flood risk data. An inexpensive Essex database search (most likely a Landmark Database search) could possibly be suggested by the property solicitor in Ilford if the results of the environmental search show that there is a flood risk.

Q.

Please advise how to circumvent paying out for stamp duty to HM Revenue?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is usually due for home purchases over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty avoidance must be treated with caution. These schemes are costly and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.

Q.

I am expecting to move from our detached home on the outskirts of Ilford into a building in Hockley . At what stage to choose a home removal company?

A.

The ideal way is for home movers to hold off instructing a removal firm until after everyone has set a formal move date that occurs after signing of contracts. Get more information from South Park Removal Service Ltd, 284 Green Lane, Ilford, IG1 1YD Telephone: 020 84781258 or A A Removals, 96a Green La, Ilford, IG1 1YQ on 07960 674002.

Q.

We are buying a barn conversion in the parish of Walham Green. Do we need a chancel search?

A.

Whether you are buying a residence in Ilford or elsewhere in the county, the Ilford conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. Chancel repair may be imposed on new owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

The internet is full of a growing number guidebooks giving details on by passing the solicitor e.g. Bradshaw's Guide to Diy House Buying Selling and Conveyancing . In which case, do I have to use solicitor in Ilford ?

A.

Hypothetically there are no reasons why you cannot decide to undertake the legal work unaided. In reality however, a solicitor handles a long list of exercises ranging from chasing lender for comments on issues raised and communication with the lender which need a skilled professional.

Q.

Is a building survey a good idea when we are buying property in Ilford?

A.

We strongly recommend that Ilford buyers arrange a house survey. It is a fact that there are many issues that have a negative impact on a property. These can include roof spread or roof damage, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

Will your conveyancing solicitor in Ilford carry out any conveyancing searches on the London thirties detached property I am intending to purchase?

A.

If buying and obtaining a mortgage the building society of bank requires you to at least specific searches, including the following for properties in Ilford: Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environmental,, and possibly area-specific searches for instance Chancel.
