Q.

How do I find fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

This matter catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing. Often additional charges may increase your solicitor's invoice. Any charges found in terms of engagement ought to be clearly defined. Applicable disbursements should also be clearly stated on the quote. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

What makes sale conveyancing legal work to take so long?

A.

The conveyancing process will occasionally be obstructed. We do our best to reduce the effect of these delays wherever feasible. Common delays may include waiting for a mortgage offer.

Q.

Might the fees for my conveyancing include any extra costs?

A.

It is unfortunate that sellers need to be watchful for extra costs hidden in a quote's terms and conditions. Homeward Legal will never charge any hidden extra charges.

Q.

Handling the legal work without a Melksham conveyancing solicitor appears to be becoming possible as a seller of a flat. Would it be prudent ?

A.

On paper there are no reasons why a home seller shouldn't look after the legal work unaided. However, a conveyancer in Melksham handles a large number of roles from ranging from interpreting replies to enquiries or dealing with requisition on os1 some of which need a qualified solicitor.

Q.

For a property valued at £1044000, what should be worked out for Stamp Duty Land Tax rates?

A.

Stamp Duty is dependent on the value of the house. Stamp duty will be £52200 on a £1044000 house or flat in Melksham.

Q.

What will the Melksham property lawyer do if the flat I hope to invest in is inside the boundary of a local authority conservation area and has unfitting stone cladding fitted?

A.

Your instructed lawyer will make enquiries to establish whether the property is located within a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have the appropriate consents. In the absence of any appropriate consents, your Melksham conveyancer will advise you of all options, which include obtaining from Wiltshire council or purchasing an indemnity insurance policy.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Melksham?

A.

Melksham is located in Wiltshire Council, County Hall, Bythesea Road, Trowbridge, Wiltshire, BA14 8JN, phone: 0300 456 0100

Q.

Does our Melksham property solicitor report back to me about the cost of the council tax on a Band B building before exchanging contracts?

A.

The conveyancer will speak to the relevant council to ask about the correct council tax band and rates, which will subsequently be set out in the conveyancing report on title.
