Q.

How do we get the best rates for conveyancing for a £444,000 property?

A.

Various law firms claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges may be added into small print. Any additional costs found in terms of engagement should be reasonable. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Is a Professional Indemnity fee a disbursement or fee?

A.

Some conveyancers frequently hide additional costs as disbursements. It may not be clear if a cost is a disbursement or not, and whether it should be included. This cost, for example, is a fee not a disbursement, and will normally be included in a conveyancing quote.

Q.

Do I need to use a solicitor commonly used by our estate agent?

Both agents and mortgage brokers will usually endorse a solicitor, however, these referrals should be compared against alternatives, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

Please explain why the sale conveyancing process in Kingston takes so long?

A.

Conveyancing may take more time than budgeted for many reasons. Some causes are unfortunately out of the conveyancing solicitor's hands. Homeward Legal do our best to lessen their impact by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible. Delays include slow third parties such as landlords or managing agents.

Q.

Do you work with lenders with Kingston branches?

A.

We are able to work in conjunction with most lenders registered with the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Kingston, such as Executive Mortgages & Investments Ltd, 1st Floor/6 Park Rd, Teddington, TW11 0AA, Absoluteley Mortgages, 68 Cheam Rd, Epsom, KT17 1QF, and A Mortgage Now, The Studio/23 Thames St, Hampton, TW12 2EW. The solicitor handling your conveyancing transaction will be able to advise further.

Q.

How much can my conveyancing searches on average cost?

A.

With Homeward Legal's conveyancing service, a client is charged no more than £249 for searches on a purchase in Kingston. Common searches include a mining search and a chancel liability search.

Q.

Can chromium contaminate Kingston topsoil?

A.

The risks posed by soil contamination to Kingston inhabitants are usually low. Also considering issues such as water contaminants such as oil and acidic compounds, contaminants affecting Kingston property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

How is stamp duty calculated, and what should we pay on a £346000 residence?

A.

The Stamp Duty Land Tax you must pay depends on the home's value. It is £10380 on a £346000 property.
