Q.

I need a solicitors firm that offers cheap conveyancing in Lansbury. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Confusion over this point affects many buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process, and many conveyancers promote supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers, eager to get underway. Your quote must also state any disbursements. Extra charges included in the small print should be fair and clearly defined. They only be applied if your conveyancer is required to complete unexpected extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Can I hold off paying out for SDLT rates?

A.

SDLT is due for home purchases priced at over £125,000. Homeward Legal strongly advise against any form of stamp duty avoidance. These schemes are expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed imposing fines and reviewing all your revenue matters. There have been several official schemes, however, such as disadvantaged area relief, and your solicitor will advise if these may apply.

Q.

What can searches be?

A.

The cost of searches on a Lansbury purchase can vary, depending on the searches chosen. They are paid out to a 3rd party, and are charged at cost.

Q.

Is the High Speed 2 line going to impact Ravenscourt Park?

A.

Yes. High Speed 2 is going to impact numerous property in the local authority of Hammersmith and Fulham. If a Ravenscourt Park property is located within 200m of the planned route, this will be identified on a Local Authority search.

Q.

Is there a government body any online published record about the conservation areas in Lansbury?

A.

Local conservation areas, for example property boundaries, addition of hard standings to the front of properties or neglected buildings are governed by Newham. English Heritage, a government body, maintain information on the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in addition to the vulnerability.

Q.

I am buying a £871000, what should be worked out for SDLT?

A.

The Stamp Duty which will be owed depends on the value of the house or flat. It is £34840 on a £871000 property.

Q.

Bookshops and the web have a multitude of online publications about by passing the solicitor. Do we necessarily have to use Lansbury property lawyer ?

A.

If you wish to have a go you can certainly embark on the majority of the legal process without instructing Lansbury solicitor. Needless to say solicitors firms would argue that this choice is a potentially hazardous thing to do as amateur lawyers will not be covered by the appropriate indemnity cover which practicing solicitors practices are required by the Law Society to carry.

Q.

Are there any designated conservation areas in Lansbury?

A.

With 9300 such areas throughout England, the regions around Lansbury include numerous conservation areas. The local authority will be able to provide more details about local conservation areas, and the conveyancing solicitor handling your purchase should discuss what specific restrictions are in place.
