Q.

What do you charge for the legal fees on a £475,000 house? We need to find a low cost conveyancing quote in Knightsbridge.

A.

This point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often extra costs may pad your final bill. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Will you need to get a chancel search if I am purchasing a property near a 1600s 'parson's close' in Knightsbridge?

A.

There are thousands of ecclesiastical parishes in England and Wales. Owners of property within some of these may be required to subsidise the repair of a local church. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including parish records. Ecclesiastical properties in this area include St Paul.

Q.

Is contaminated land an issue for the majority of residential properties in Knightsbridge?

A.

A wide range of contaminants may impact property in Knightsbridge, like local historic industrial processes. An environmental search should offer more information.

Q.

How do we get out of paying for SDLT?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is generally due for residential property over £125,000. Homeward Legal do not recommend any stamp duty scheme, as such schemes are costly and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.

Q.

How do I stop being gazumped?

A.

The practice of choosing to reject a previously accepted offer on a house after a second buyer has made a better offer is called gazumping. There is almost always a risk of being gazumped. Instructing a solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer should help to mitigate this risk.

Q.
