Q.

How do we get the best conveyancing rates for a £139k property?

A.

Numerous law firms claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges can increase your final bill. Extras needs to be fair and clearly defined. They be applicable solely where the conveyancer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if we are intending to buy in the parish of Exeter St Edmund?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish in which the property being purchased is found. In older areas of Merton Park, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on new owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. For property in the parish of Exeter St Edmund, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Does Homeward Legal get involved in the conveyancing for auction properties in Merton Park?

A.

We are able to act on property auction conveyancing. Often specialist lots like development land are bought in auctions which tend to need

greater examination. We therefore encourage buyers at auction to choose a CQS lawyer well in advance of the auction to allow sufficient time for a detailed review of the legal papers for the lot.

Subsequently, immediately after the day of bidding, a lawyer needs to be able to concentrate on carry out the conveyancing in 28 days after exchange, a requirement of conditions of sale.

Q.

Is there any information on the conservation areas in Merton Park?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have assembled a detailed list of the condition of conservation areas in England in addition to the vulnerability of the area. Conservation areas in Merton Park including upkeep of paths or advertising hoardings etc. are dealt with by the local authority (Merton).

Q.

We are buying in Merton Park on a new development brownfield site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste like titanium (Ti)?

A.

Even where some contamination has occurred in Merton Park, risk levels are usually low. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including radioactive waste.

Q.

What areas of conservation are there in Merton Park?

A.

Locales deemed to be of historical or architectural value, such as stretches of canals, will be defined as conservation areas. These restrictions may impose liability on a buyer for unauthorised alterations made by previous owners, but the benefits will include an increase in local property values.

Q.

For a fast exchange and completion on the purchase of a £672,000 house, what should we organise to speed up our move?

A.

Contacting a proactive conveyancing solicitor is key a fast conveyancing transaction. There are a range of things you as the buyer can do to speed up the process, including, responding to all correspondence via the fastest means, clarifying your mortgage lender's requirements and calling or emailing your conveyancing solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays.

Q.

Please confirm how to get out of paying out for stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

Stamp duty scheme is not advised. These schemes are expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed and the total stamp duty amount may be due. There have been several official schemes, such as for first-time buyers.
