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.

Which local authority looks after Lansbury?

A.

Lansbury is located in London Borough of Newham Council, Newham Dockside, 1000 Dockside Road, London, E16 2QU, phone: 020 8430 2003

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.

Could Lansbury topsoil be contaminated by lithium?

A.

Most soils in Lansbury have some degree of contamination, from industry and natural causes. The local authority for Lansbury will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

For fast conveyancing on the purchase of a £533,000 residence, what do we need to do?

A.

Key to a fast conveyancing transaction is to use a proactive, diligent lawyer. There are a range of tasks you as the purchaser could do to speed up the process, such as, completing all forms as soon as possible, pushing the lawyer to begin enquiries as soon as possible and organising your finances.

Q.

What should I be conscious of if we buy a period house in a Newham council conservation area ?

A.

Part of conveyancing involves ordering of LLC1 searches of the Newham authority to confirm conservation area status and consent for any changes. LLC1 searches are not fees and are charged without markup to the client.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a residential converted home in Lansbury?

A.
