Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing estimate?

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. Any additional fees listed in terms and conditions ought to be reasonable and clear and come into force only if the solicitor must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Do I need to instruct the firm of solicitors suggested by the estate agent in Stow on the Wold?

A.

It is common practice for estate agents to refer a law firm to handle your conveyancing. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, there is a risk that an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best value for you.

Q.

Does my Keston conveyancer do any searches on the London thirties mid terrace house I am purchasing

When obtaining a mortgage a mortgage lender requires you to at least the following for properties in Keston: Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environment Search and occasionally less common searches for example Land charge Search (bankruptcy only).

Q.

How early should I arrange a conveyancing solicitor to handle our sale?

A.

If you choose a firm with 'no move, no fee' protection, as soon as possible, as the legal work can commence immediately. Early instruction of a conveyancing solicitor to act on your Keston sale or purchase can limit the risk of the other side pulling out.

Q.

Has soil in Keston been contaminated by chromium (Cr)?

A.

Regulations have been passed to control pollution, waste, water and chemical contamination. The local authority for Keston will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

How is stamp duty tax measured and what should we budget for a £1010000 property?

A.

The Stamp Duty Land Tax due is dependent on the property's value. On a £1010000 house, stamp duty will be £50500.

Q.

I am moving in Keston, and have a quote from you. Could I be invoiced any hidden charges?

A.

We do not charge any hidden extra costs. Sometimes a separate matter is also required, like a vesting order, but you will be made aware of any fees relating to this.

Q.

Does your firm get involved in the conveyancing of auction properties in Keston?

A.

We are very competent with buyers at auction. Typically unusually constructed houses such as property that cannot be mortgaged, are included in auctions and these necessitate increased inquiries. Solicitors therefore strongly recommend that auction buyers appoint a good conveyancing lawyer in advance of the auction day to allow adequate time for a detailed review of the property's legal title. Immediately following the auction day your experienced lawyer will be geared up to finishing the legal work in the usual 28 days as typically required .
