Q.

How do I get a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many homeowners paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many law firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However extra charges are frequently hidden in the small print, left unread by preoccupied homeowners Any additional charges found in terms of engagement needs to be reasonable. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We are intending to purchase with Rooftop Mortgages, what do I need to check?

A.

When taking out a mortgage, your lender will require legal work to be carried out on their behalf. Purchasers need to be aware that some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly higher conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal, fortunately, are able to act for many mortgage lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay legal fees for your lender's solicitor.

Q.

What actions can I take to hold off paying stamp duty to HM Revenue?

A.

Stamp duty scheme should be treated with extreme caution. These schemes are highly expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later.

Q.

Having read about the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England, we are wondering if flood risk searches aren't thorough enough?

A.

A thorough conveyancing solicitor in Mere should always carry out detailed flood risk searches if the standard search spots a significant risk.

For extra area background it could be worth trying to get in touch with a neighbour of the property.

Q.

How do you calculate stamp duty rates and how much do we need to budget for a £255000 property?

A.

The rate of stamp duty that will be due will depend on the valuation. Stamp duty will be £7650 on a £255000 property.

Q.

Are Land Registry office copies fees or disbursements?

A.

It is not always obvious whether an item on your quote is a fee or a disbursement. These costs are disbursements not fees, and is passed on to the buyer at cost.

Q.

Do we need to make use of a conveyancing who generally works with by our agent?

A.

Many agents in Dunvant have arrangements with solicitors where they refer clients to them. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.
