Q.

How soon is it wise to find a conveyancing solicitor to handle our transaction?

A.

If you choose a conveyancing solicitor with 'no move, no fee' protection, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as there are various tasks which may be carried out very early in the process. Some groups recommend postponing instruction until the offer is accepted, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.

Q.

Can I bypass paying stamp duty?

A.

Homeward Legal do not recommend property buyers expose their finances to any stamp duty mitigation, as such schemes are expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed imposing fines and reviewing all your revenue matters.

Q.

Flood searches may be conveyancing protocol but with recent events e g the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England are they the best way to advise me enough about the evolving Ivybridge risk of flooding?

A.

A good property solicitor in Ivybridge will recommend that you get informative environmental searches if the enviro search flags up a Ivybridge flood risk.

Why not converse with a neighbour of the property to gain added information if you are still worried.

Q.

We are buying a an extended flat in one of the conservation areas. How do I find more information in respect of the state of repair?

A.

Conservation areas are created by South Hams who regulate everything from what can be demolished to vacant buildings. Following a campaign, English Heritage have created a detailed list on the state of repair of conservation areas along with the trend.
