Usually, fixtures are the fixed elements, such as external lights attached to floors, walls or ceilings, and fittings are free-standing items, like a fridge or lampshades. Completion and agreement of a ‘fixtures and fittings’ form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopardise the transaction.Q.
The normal conveyancing protocol for Long Eaton is to obtain the following: a Local Authority (council) Search, a Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), an Environmental Search, and a Lead Mining Search. There may be additional area-specific searches that need to be carried out (e.g. a Land Charges Full Search).Q.

The time needed to sell or purchase residential property does vary, dependent on a broad set of factors (for example, when third parties fail to promptly answer queries). Nationally, the average time for the conveyancing is around twelve weeks, whereas our solicitors at Homeward Legal will, wherever feasible, work towards a six-week timescale. Use our quote calculator, or call our waiting experts on 0800 038 6699 for your fixed-fee quote.Q.
Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) depends on a small range of considerations, but primarily the house’s or flat's purchase price, if it is over £125,000. For example, the SDLT on a £1,160,000 home will be £59,750.Q.
Environmental searches carried out by your property solicitor as a standard part of the conveyancing will
return historical data on flooding in the Long Eaton area. Should the level of risk be deemed high enough, your solicitor may recommend ordering a far more thorough flood-search. This is a disbursement, which will be passed on to you at cost, if you go ahead with it. If you remain worried, you could contact a close neighbour, or a local flood repair expert.Q.
Yes they are. Our solicitors are part of the Conveyancing Quality Scheme and always approach the conveyancing in a pragmatic and proactive way. Homeward Legal’s solicitors will always communicate end-to-end throughout the buyer and seller chain, and always use cutting-edge integrated systems to exchange on the sale with minimal stress.
