Q.

How do we identify a genuinely cheap fee? I am trying to find a low cost conveyancing quote.

A.

This topic catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors promote supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional costs are frequently hidden in small print. Excited property buyers and sellers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Additional charges which are listed in terms and conditions needs to be fair.

Q.

Do I need to make use of the firm of solicitors put forward by my agent?

A.

It is common for agents to endorse a solicitor, however, these referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

Is it shrewd to do the conveyancing on a DIY basis on my own.

A.

It can certainly possible to take care of he conveyancing unaided. However, a property solicitor in Kingswood takes care of a huge number of exercises

including chasing any outstanding docs and verifying identities of transacting parties many of which need a qualified solicitor. In any event however, firms and their solicitors are legally obligated to take out applicable insurance cover to shield you in the event of any carelessness.

Q.

Is it costly to circumvent paying for SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty reduction should be treated with extreme caution, because these schemes are often uneconomical and often likely to fail.

Q.

Is an administration fee a disbursement or fee?

A.

A quote should clearly state all fees and disbursements. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in a quote.

Q.

Which of the lender panels in Kingswood are you on?

Q.

I am planning to buy in Kingswood. Should we have conveyancing searches performed?

A.

Searches are a commonly-used set of enquiries raised by the buyer's conveyancer, such as a chancel search. Buyers in Kingswood should consider that, conveyancing searches refer specifically to issues and defects relating to the property's legal title.

Q.

I am buying a property in the boundary of conservation areas. Where does one locate more data concerning the present standard of repair of the area?

A.

Conservation areas in Kingswood are specified by the local authority (South Gloucestershire) who administer conservation area concerns from what can be demolished to street guard rails. English Heritage, a government body, now maintain records in relation to the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in Kingswood and across England along with the trend of the area.
