Does Homeward Legal conduct property auction conveyancing in Kettering?
We are able to work with auction buyers and sellers. Our solicitors have worked for numerous successful bidders at regional auctions such as Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.
Experienced auction buyers always pick a qualified property conveyancing lawyer as rapidly as possible to allow time for a thorough investigation of the legal documents prior to the auction.
Subsequently, immediately after the date of the auction your now prepared lawyer is totally ready for speedily completing the legal work in a as tight time frame as required .
When in the process do I need to instruct a conveyancer?
Simply, the faster you instruct the better. Instructing a conveyancing firm early can reduce the likelihood of your purchase or sale stalling.
When should I book a removals firm?
It’s very tempting to get wrapped in the excitement of moving home and wanting to get everything sorted out and in the diary. But, if you book a removals firm too early, prior to the exchange of contracts (when the date and time of completion is legally set), you risk the possibility that the date might change, thereby having to pay a fee to the removals firm to change the plans.
There is nothing stopping you in contacting a selection of firms to get a quote for removal and to negotiate the possibility of pencilling a date in but ensure you obtain agreement that this is subject to change and confirmation.
What is stamp duty and land transaction tax?
Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is a proportion of the final sale price of a property payable to HMRC by the buyer. The current trigger threshold is for any property priced at £125,000 or over (unless you’re a first-time buyer, in which case you pay less or no tax for properties priced at less than £500,000). Your solicitor will handle the transfer of the tax as part of the final tasks on your conveyancing.
In Scotland, buyers have to pay Land and Buildings Transaction Tax and, in Wales, the Land Transaction Tax is triggered at properties priced over £180,000.
In all cases, the amount payable is based on a sliding scale as the price goes up as a proportion of that range added together than an overall flat tax amount or percentage. So, the higher the price goes up, the greater the amount of tax you have to pay.
We have a freehold house to purchase. How do we ensure fast conveyancing?
Primarily, finding a proactive conveyancing solicitor is essential to faster conveyancing. There are several things you, as the purchaser, can also do to speed up your conveyancing, such as, asking for property searches to be ordered immediately, completing all forms as soon as possible and organising your finances.
