Q.

Mayfair area information

A.

Wandsworth London Windmill, Apsley House English Heritage and Jewel Tower English Heritage are easily accessible from Mayfair.

The closest hospital for Mayfair is Welbeck London.

Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £727k house?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this matter affects many property buyers and sellers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many conveyancers purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional costs are often hiding in the small print which unwary property buyers and sellers fail to check. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Would acquiring a home buyers survey be advisable when we are purchasing a house or flat, regardless of its age?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors strongly advise that home buyers order a house survey when you plan to buy in Mayfair. There are a wide range of problems which have a negative impact on a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address. These can include rotten roof timbers or cracks in walls.

Q.

How do we work out stamp duty, and how much do we need to budget for a £360000 house?

The SDLT you will owe will rely on a limited set of factors, primarily the house's purchase price. On a £360000 residential property, stamp duty will be £10800.

Q.

Handling the legal work without using a conveyancer in Mayfair is becoming possible when buying a maisonette. Would it actually be practicable ?

A.

If you want to attempt this you can conduct bulk of the legal process without using a skilled Mayfair solicitor. Fundamentally do it yourself conveyancers do not have the applicable professional indemnity insurance that every legal practices need to have.

Q.

Are there any conservation areas in Mayfair?

A.

Locales deemed to be of historical or architectural value, such as 18th century suburbs, will be designated as conservation areas. The conveyancing solicitor handling your purchase provide more details and discuss the relevant responsibilities.

Q.

In 3 months we are expecting to move from our terraced building in Mayfair into a newer house in Soho . At what point to appoint a home removal firm?

A.

The ideal point is for buyers to hold off a removal firm until the point where you and the other side has scheduled a formal completion date which happens once contracts have exchanged.

For more information try Man With Van Removals, 10 White Horse Street, London, W1J 7JL Telephone: 020 3394 0967.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process do we need to arrange a conveyancing solicitor in Mayfair?

A.

With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, the sooner the better. The legal work can then commence straight away. Prompt instruction of a conveyancing solicitor to act for you on your Mayfair transaction for a sale may mean that information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer, whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.

Q.

How much time should I plan for the conveyancing process take, in your experience?

A.

Generally speaking, the length of time required to transact property can vary. This is based on several factors including if there is a mortgage. We strive to ensure your sale or purchase receives communicative and proactive service, resulting in the fastest possible outcome.
