Q.

I am looking for a fixed rate conveyancing quote. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Various firms advertise cheap conveyancing. Often additional charges are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. A quote for conveyancing in Lechlade must also state the disbursements to be paid. Additional charges listed in the solicitor's terms needs to be fair and reasonable. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Do fixtures and fittings include things like beds?

A.

Chiefly, fixtures are fixed to floors, walls and ceilings and fixtures are free-standing items, such as tables. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction, and this makes the completion of a fixtures and fittings form essential.

Q.

What conservation areas are there in Lechlade?

A.

There are several conservation areas in or near Lechlade. You may wish to contact the local authority for more information, but your property solicitor will address this during the conveyancing process.

Is a home buyers survey advisable if we are buying a home?

A.

Q.

Is there something I can do to circumvent paying SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty mitigation is not advised, as such schemes are often uneconomical and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed imposing fines and reviewing all your revenue matters.

Q.

Could our conveyancing charges introduce any supplementary hidden charges?

A.

Unfortunately, hidden fees are not uncommon in conveyancing. Homeward Legal never charge any hidden charges. If you are comparing quotes, consider that some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote, which they will not be bound to.

Q.

Bookshops and the web both have a multitude of on and offline publications all about doing your own legal work. Do we necessarily need to instruct a lawyer in Lechlade ?

A.

It is possible to take care of he your own conveyancing unaided.

In reality however, a conveyancer in Lechlade typically handles a large number of assignments ranging from chasing any outstanding docs or registering the new title owner some of which need experience. Furthermore legal practices must obtain cover that ultimately protects you from any negligence.
