I am looking for a cheap Kelvedon solicitor for purchasing a flat. What do we need to consider?

Is there anything I can do to avoid paying stamp duty tax?


Stamp duty is payable on houses over £125,000. We do not advise buyers arrange any stamp duty scheme. Such schemes are expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed meaning that the full stamp duty amount will be payable, with potential fines.

We are purchasing in Kelvedon. Can I establish whether the property is in a designated conservation area?

I have read about DIY conveyancing when buying and selling a home - Might it be shrewd to take care of the legal work without help.?


There is absolutely no argument why you cant undertake the legal process without Kelvedon property solicitor.

However, a Kelvedon lawyer juggles a large number of tasks such as drafting contracts or handling retentions some of which require the relevant training.


Where do I see if the conservation area is neglected?


Conservation areas are nominated by the local authority (Braintree) who maintain the state of the area including things like neglected buildings, addition of PVC windows and whether trees can be cut down. English Heritage, a government body, have assembled a list of the state of conservation areas in Kelvedon and across England along with the trend.


Should we opt for the lawyer used by the estate agent?


An agent will usually endorse a conveyancer, however, such referrals should be compared against alternatives, as an agent may decide to recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.
