Q.

We need an affordable conveyancing quote. What is included?

A.

Various law firms advertise cheap conveyancing, but extra charges may be added into the small print. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. The conveyancing quote should, in addition, define the disbursements to be paid. Any charges found in the terms needs to be fair and clearly defined and only be applied if the conveyancer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

We are interested in purchasing a building in Maghull. How do I find out if the building is in a conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas classify local areas of architectural merit. You may wish to contact the local council if you have specific questions, but your property solicitor will address this during the conveyancing process.

Q.

What type of environmental conveyancing searches into the risk and history of floods in the Merseyside area will my conveyancing solicitor in Maghull do?

A.

An integral part of the conveyancing protocol involved in buying a home involves a solicitor making an application for conveyancing searches (environmental) that go in some details on the Maghull flood risk. A significantly more in-depth conveyancing search, such as the Landmark search, may be recommended by your conveyancing solicitor in Maghull if the results of the initial conveyancing searches show that there is any risk of flooding.

Q.

What can our conveyancing searches cost?

A.

With Homeward Legal, you will be charged at most £249 for conveyancing searches. These searches are paid out to a 3rd party, and are charged 'at cost'.

Q.

I am buying with Nationwide Building Society, what will we need to be aware of?

A.

A small number of lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating increased legal costs for buyers. We can act for the vast majority of UK mortgage lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay the lender's legal fees.

Q.

Is there something I can do to avoid paying stamp duty tax?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax usually must be paid on property purchases priced at over £125,000. Stamp duty avoidance should not be considered. Such schemes are highly expensive and very risky.

Q.

Can strontium (Sr) contaminate Maghull soil?

A.

Given the region's industrial and agricultural history in parts of Maghull, top-soil contamination cannot be totally avoided. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including groundwater contamination and hazardous gases.

Q.

For a residence valued at £1190000. How is Stamp Duty Land Tax rates worked out?

A.

The Stamp Duty owed depends on the purchase price. For a house or flat bought for £1190000, SDLT is £59500.*
