Q.

How do we get the best rates for conveyancing in New Beckenham for a £62,000 property?

A.

Various firms claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra fees may increase your final bill. Extra charges found in the small print needs to be fair and reasonable.

Q.

The web is full of an abundance of online manuals all about DIY conveyancing. That being the case, do I need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in New Beckenham ?

A.

On paper there is absolutely no argument at all why you cant engage in the conveyancing without assistance. The truth is however that a New Beckenham conveyancer is familiar with a huge array of roles from e.g. chasing completion statements and checking for any restrictive covenants most of which require experience.

Q.

Scottish Widows Bank is going to be our mortgage lender, what do we need to check?

A.

Buyers should consider that, in some cases, lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel. This can mean greater legal costs for purchasers. Homeward Legal, though, are able to act on behalf of the vast majority of mortgage lenders.

Q.

How long may conveyancing to sell a home require? I need a fast service.

A.

In general, the number of weeks required to transfer a home will vary. This wide range results from several factors, for example, whether the property is leasehold. Our conveyancers ensure every purchase receives fast and efficient service.

Q.

We are intending to buy a church rectory in the parish of Greenford. Is a chancel search required?

A.

The solicitor responsible for your move may suggest a chancel search, whichever parish where the residence being bought is found. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have chosen to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not continue to be so, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Is there something I can do to avoid paying stamp duty in New Beckenham?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is payable on property sold for more than 125,000 pounds. Homeward Legal do not advise buyers expose their finances to any form of stamp duty mitigation scheme, as such schemes are often uneconomical and often likely to fail. There have been several government initiatives, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers.

Q.

Does anybody hold any detailed public information on the conservation areas in New Beckenham?

A.

Local New Beckenham conservation areas e.g. building materials used, addition of PVC windows or advertising hoardings are overseen by Lewisham. Following a campaign, English Heritage now maintain a list on the condition of conservation areas as well as the vulnerability.

Q.

Are costs for obtaining landlord's consent to alterations fees or disbursements?

A.

Disbursements and fees should be clearly stated on the quote for your conveyancing. These costs are fees not disbursements. Consent can be difficult to arrange, but the fee may be included in a quote for your conveyancing.
