Q.

How do I get the best conveyancing rates for a £248,000 house?

A.

Various law firms claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra charges are frequently hidden in the terms. Fees included in terms and conditions should be reasonable and clear. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

I f I read up on the conveyancing process as a seller of a home , Would it be an unrealistic idea to take care of all of the legal work without help.?

A.

Conceivably there are no arguments why a home mover cant embark on the legal process unaided. That said, a solicitor in Martock is familiar with a significant number of skilled tasks e.g. chasing mortgage offer or checking that the contract package is in order some of which require a skilled professional.

Q.

What will fee for our searches be?

A.

With a Homeward Legal solicitor, clients buying in Martock charged at a maximum £249 for searches. These searches are paid out to a 3rd party, and are charged at cost.

Q.

Is contaminated land in Martock a concern for residences?

A.

Residential property can be contaminated by a wide range of natural causes and human activities. Contaminants such as other sources of contaminated land should be considered as part of the appropriate search.

Q.

What will the Martock conveyancing solicitor do if the maisonette is in a registered conservation area and has unauthorised cladding fitted?

A.

The solicitor will always confirm if the property is affected by a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have the essential consents from the local authority.

Q.

The estate agent has referred the conveyancing solicitor. Should we use this solicitor?

A.

Your agent may recommend a solicitor. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, some agents choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

I am completing next August. What will be assessed for Stamp Duty Land Tax?

A.

The SDLT you must pay will depend on the value of the property. Stamp duty will be £57750 on a £1155000 property.*

Q.

What causes the purchase conveyancing process to take weeks more than planned?

A.

The legal work required to buy or sell a home can take more time than budgeted for many reasons. The causes can unhappily be out of the solicitor's hands. We understand how unnecessarily stressful these delays can be and endeavour to reduce their burden where viable by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible. Delays may include slow third parties such as landlords or managing agents.
