Q.

Do all cheap conveyancing quotes have extra fees? We need affordable conveyancing.

A.

Several property lawyers claim to offer cheap conveyancing, but additional costs are frequently hidden in small print. Excited property buyers and sellers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct.

Q.

Do it yourself conveyancing without instructing a Lee On The Solent conveyancing solicitor is becoming possible when buying and selling a maisonette , however would it actually be a false economy ?

A.

Hypothetically speaking there are no arguments why you cant engage in the bulk of the conveyancing without assistance. In reality however, a property lawyer is familiar with a significant number of skilled tasks such as approving contract or communication with the lender which are more safely handled

with appropriate a qualified solicitor. Moreover legal firms are bound to carry the applicable indemnity cover that ultimately protects you in the event of any losses you encounter.

Q.

The property seller has added conspicuous artificial stone cladding in Lee On The Solent which we think might infringe nearby conservation area guidelines

A.

A solicitor will identify if the property is within a conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have essential consents from the local council. In the absence of any consents, your Lee On The Solent conveyancing solicitor will advise you of the alternatives which include seeking retrospective consent from Gosport local authority or getting covered by an indemnity policy.

Q.

How usual is gazumping?

A.

This describes circumstances where a seller agrees to an offer and then rejects it, selecting instead another purchaser's offer. This may happen weeks into a sale. The danger of gazumping is present in any transaction. Consider instructing an efficient solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.

Q.

How can we determine stamp duty tax?

A.

The SDLT you will owe is calculated with reference to the valuation. On a £1092000 property, stamp duty will be £54600.*

Q.

We are going to buy a 1940s building in the middle of a conservation area, how do I locate more information concerning the standard of repair?

A.

Conservation areas are nominated by the local authority (Gosport) who administer things like the historic layout of roads to the deterrence of traffic signs. English Heritage now maintain records in relation to the state of repair of conservation areas along with the trend.

Q.

How soon do you need to find a solicitor?

A.

With few exceptions, the sooner the better. The legal work can then commence immediately. Some groups suggest waiting before instruction until the offer is accepted, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.
