Q.

How do we get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Various solicitors offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional charges will be included in the solicitor's terms. Excited home owners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any extra costs found in terms and conditions should be fair and reasonable. Your quote should also state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.

Q.

Does my conveyancing solicitor in New Milton order any searches on the Hampshire Edwardian semi-detached property I am purchasing

A.

Normal legal procedure is to obtain these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search and perhaps area-specific searches e.g. a Commons Registration Search.

Q.

How is stamp duty calculated, and what should we budget for a £575000 property?

Stamp Duty depends on the purchase price. On a £575000 house, stamp duty will be £23000.*

Q.

Is a house survey a good idea when we are purchasing a home?

A.

It is firmly advised that purchasers instruct a home surveyor to carry out a survey when you intend to buy in New Milton. It is a fact that there are many issues that affect a property, including cracked roof tiles.

Q.

We are moving in New Milton, and have a conveyancing quote from you. Will there be any extra costs?

A.

No. We never charge any hidden costs whatsoever. Some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote. The final bill you receive may be much more.

Q.

What amount of time does conveyancing legal work often take, in your opinion? We need to move quickly.

A.

In general, the time taken to buy or sell a home varies, affected by a broad set of concerns which may include if a property is leasehold or freehold. 8 to 12 weeks is the average for many firms, but we work towards four to six weeks, wherever possible.

Q.

The estate agent has suggested a law firm that they have used before. Will it be more cost-effective to instruct them?

A.

Your agent may recommend a conveyancing firm. These referrals should be compared against alternatives, as an agent may select the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

Do you recommend that I get a chancel search if I am buying in New Milton?

A.

Owners of property neighbouring churches are expected to fund repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Several sources are used to determine liability in New Milton, including parish archives.
