Q.

How do we identify a genuinely cheap fee? I am looking for discount conveyancing.

A.

Various property lawyers promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional fees will be included in the terms of engagement. Any extra charges needs to be fair.

Q.

Would you advise that I get a chancel search? I am buying a property in Leighton Buzzard.

A.

As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Leighton Buzzard which was once owned by a 'lay rectors' can be liable for upkeep of churches. A chancel search is used to confirm whether such a liability exists. Leighton Buzzard churches where a chancel search may be appropriate include All Saints Parish Church.

Q.

For fast conveyancing to buy a £709k house, what should we do?

A.

Primarily, contacting a proactive property lawyer is key fast conveyancing. When finding a suitable a property lawyer, consider these points: Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication? How soon will they order searches? Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?

Q.

What actual property conveyancing searches will the lawyer in Leighton Buzzard apply for when acting on a Leighton Buzzard house?

A.

The customary conveyancing procedure is to get these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environmental as well as any particular searches, like Index Map.

Q.

Doing ones own conveyancing without a solicitor in Leighton Buzzard looks to be possible as a buyer and seller of a maisonette. Would it really be a good idea ?

A.

Hypothetically there is absolutely no reason why you cant apply this approach and complete the conveyancing on your own. That said, a conveyancing solicitor in Leighton Buzzard is in charge of a significant number of roles from such as chasing outstanding papers and handling retentions many of which really need a qualified professional.

Q.

Halifax will be our mortgage lender, what do we need to know?

A.

Buyers in Leighton Buzzard should be aware that some lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them. Homeward Legal will act for most mortgage lenders.

Q.

My local agent has put forward a conveyancing. Should I use them?

A.

If you choose a solicitor referred through this route, you may have the advantage of the agent being able to exert pressure on a solicitor to wrap up the process as soon as possible. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, there is a risk that the agent may suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

How is SDLT calculated and how much should it be on a £655000 residence?

A.

The Stamp Duty that will be due is based on the value of the home. It will be £26200 on a £655000 residential property.
