Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a 718,000 property?

A.

Many solicitors promote supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra costs may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement. Your conveyancing quote ought to list costs to be paid to third parties, including search providers, (disbursments).The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if we are intending to buy in the parish of Wapping, near Kew?

A.

A Kew conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. Chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

For a house valued at £453k, how is SDLT calculated?

A.

The Stamp Duty you must pay is based on a limited set of factors, including the house's value. On a £453k house or flat, stamp duty will be £13590.*

Q.

Bookshops now have plenty of publications giving details on doing the legal work yourself e.g. House Buying, Selling and Conveyancing: How to Save Estate Agent and Solicitor Fees When Buying or Selling Property .

Do we have to use conveyancing solicitor in Kew ?A.

Technically, there is no argument at all why a home seller should not conduct the legal work yourself. However, a lawyer is familiar with a huge array of roles from ranging from interpreting replies to enquiries and communicating with managing agents some of which require a qualified solicitor. Despite that firms and their solicitors are required by their regulator to obtain indemnity cover that protects you from any professional omissions on the part of the solicitor.

Q.

Is your solicitor team experienced enough to move quickly on the legal conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Kew?

A.

Yes - Homeward Legal do frequently get instructed by auction buyers and sellers. We often suggest buyers at auction to appoint a conveyancing company in advance of the date of the auction to give enough time for a title report of the legal papers.

Post day of the auction your now prepared conveyancing solicitor is thoroughly focused on concluding the transaction inside the limited time as required .
