Q.

How do we find affordable conveyancing?

A.

Various property lawyers offer cheap conveyancing, but additional costs can inflate the solicitor's invoice. Any disbursements to be paid should be included on your quote

Q.

In a few weeks I am looking to move from our period building in Kingston upon Thames to our next flat in Richmond Upon Thames , when to instruct a home removal company?

A.

Homeward Legal will encourage you hold off booking a removals company until such time as contracts have exchanged because generally a date will not have been agreed. Try Kingston Removals, Fife Rd, Kingston Upon Thames, KT1 1SB Tel: 07827 259486 or Kingston Removals, 54/54/Wood Street, Kingston Upon Thames, KT1 1UW Call: 020 3432 8802.

Q.

When in the process do you need to instruct a solicitor in Kingston upon Thames?

A.

The short answer is, as soon as possible, as the legal work can begin very early in the process. Promptly instructing a solicitor for a sale means that prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers, whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.

Q.

The property seller looks to have installed unsuitable dormer windows in Kingston upon Thames which we think might contravene local conservation area criteria

A.

The conveyancing solicitor will make enquiries to verify if your proposed purchase is affected by a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have the necessary permission from the Kingston upon Thames planning authority.

If no appropriate consents be supplied the solicitor will recommend the alternatives such as taking out an indemnity insurance policy or seeking retrospective consent.

Q.

Can you suggest how I hold off paying for stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty scheme is not advised when buying in Kingston upon Thames. Such schemes are costly and can be very unlikely to succeed.

Q.

Does my conveyancer in Kingston upon Thames order any searches on the London Victorian semi-detached home I want to buy?

A.

If you are getting a mortgage the building society of bank mandates specific searches, including these searches - Local Authority Search, Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environment Search, and perhaps particular searches, like SIM Search.

Q.

Our purchase will complete on 21st December, how is stamp duty calculated?
