Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? We are trying to find fixed rate conveyancing.

A.

Both high-street and online firms promote so-called cheap conveyancing. Often additional fees will be included in the terms of engagement. Any costs ought to be reasonable and be applicable if your solicitor is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

How do I circumvent paying out for SDLT?

A.

Homeward Legal do not recommend clients risk any stamp duty scheme. These schemes are expensive and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.

Q.

Co-operative Bank is our mortgage lender - what do I need to be aware of?

A.

In some cases, lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, potentially creating greater legal costs for property purchasers. We will act for all large lenders in the UK, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

In 3 months we are looking to move out of our terraced residence just outside Ladbroke Grove to our next building in South Kensington . What is the optimum stage to instruct a removal company?

Homeward Legals advice is for buyers to avoid agreeing a removal firm until such time as both sides have set your moving date which takes place after contracts have exchanged.

There are many local and national companies including Man With Van, 124 Bravington Rd, London, W9 3AL Tel: 020 3394 2171 or A nice man with a van, 359 Harrow Rd, London, W9 3NA Call: 0844 247 0389.

Q.

We are concerned about the council tax amounts on a Fifties converted building in Ladbroke Grove, what are they?

A.

More often than not the conveyancer's title report should contain the appropriate Westminster council tax band.

Council tax rates for residents of Ladbroke Grove are detailed on the Westminster council site. At the time of writing, 27 October 2012, rates are:

  • Band A - £456.00
  • Band B - £533.00

  • Band E - £837.00
  • Band F - £989.00
  • Band G - £1,141.00

Q.

My agent has offered a property solicitor whom they usually use. Is it risky to use this firm?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will often refer a solicitors firm, however, these referrals must be carefully considered, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

Should we get a Homebuyer Report for our Ladbroke Grove home purchase?

A.

It is strongly suggested that you instruct a house surveyor to undertake a survey if you are planning to buy in Ladbroke Grove. Many problems affect a property, which include poor drainage.

Q.

Should I read about doing ones own conveyancing when buying a house , Would it be prudent to enact the all of the legal work without any help?

A.

Hypothetically speaking there is no argument why you cant go down that route and embark on the bulk of the legal process on your own. However, a lawyer in Ladbroke Grove carries out a long list of skilled tasks e.g. chasing deeds and interpreting management accounts which are more safely handled with appropriate experience. Moreover lawyers are obligated to take out the appropriate indemnity cover that protects you in the event of failures.
