I need to find a fixed rate conveyancing quote, we are on a tight budget.


Both high-street and online firms claim to offer cheap conveyancing, but additional costs are frequently hidden in the terms. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Fees should be reasonable and clear. The disbursements to be paid must also be stated on your quote. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Does handle the conveyancing of auction properties in Maida Vale?


Yes - Homeward Legal is able to work with residential property auction procedures. Usually more complicated to convey properties e. g. building plots, are listed in property auctions and these demand greater fact-finding. Homeward Legal therefore strongly suggest auction buyers to instruct the lawyer well in advance of the property auction date so there is time for a title report of the sellers legal pack.

After the property auction your Homeward Legal lawyer is wholly geared up to completing all of the legal work within as short a time frame as required .


What is gazumping?


Gazumping takes place when an offer is rejected, following initial acceptance, by the property seller, selecting instead a better offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a risk of being gazumped. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing a property solicitor early.


What precautions can I take to avoid paying stamp duty tax?


Stamp Duty Land Tax must be paid for purchases over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty mitigation should be treated with extreme caution in Maida Vale, as such schemes are often uneconomical and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself. There have been several legitimate initiatives, however, such as disadvantaged area relief, and your solicitor will advise if these may apply.


I have requested a quote from you. Will I be expected to pay any hidden charges?


Homeward Legal's solicitors will not charge any additional charges regardless of circumstances. Your quote is an accurate fee the legal expenses for your move.


Does Maida Vale include any designated conservation areas?

Does anybody hold any public info the status of conservation areas in Maida Vale?


Conservation are issues, for instance area development or back illuminated signs are administered by Camden. Following a campaign, English Heritage now maintain information about the condition of conservation areas as well as the vulnerability.


How long should conveyancing to purchase a house need?
