Numerous firms offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional fees will be included in the terms of engagement that buyers often do not check. Extra costs which are listed in your solicitor's terms needs to be reasonable. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

What does 'fixtures and fittings' include?

A.

Chiefly, there is not a clear definition of fixtures and fittings. The assumptions held by the parties may vary; this can make the clarification of any difference of opinion so important.

Q.

Does your firm carry out the conveyancing for auction properties in Norbiton?

A.

Yes - We are able to act on residential property auction protocols. It is not uncommon for unusually constructed lots for example investment properties, are sold at property auctions and these necessitate further inquiries. We therefore advise buyers to choose a lawyer well before the auction day so there is time for an investigation of the auction legal papers. Following the day of

bidding, a lawyer has to be prepared for carry out the legal work inside 28 days, a requirement of auction conditions.

Q.

Will conveyancer in Norbiton do any searches on the London thirties terraced home we are buying?

A.

If you are getting a mortgage the mortgage lender mandates particular searches, including these searches - Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search as well as any specific local searches for example Anti Money Laundering Search.

Q.

Would you recommend taking precautions to defer paying for stamp duty to HM Revenue?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is usually due for home purchases over 125,000 pounds. We do not recommend any form of stamp duty mitigation scheme. These schemes are highly expensive and can be very unlikely to succeed. There have been several government-sponsored schemes, such as for first-time buyers.

Q.

Are charges for obtaining duplicate freehold company share certificates disbursements or fees?

A.

Each fee and disbursement ought to be stated on a conveyancing quote. These costs are fees not disbursements, and should be included in a conveyancing quote.

Q.

Is there an authority that has any over the web record the status of the conservation areas in Norbiton?

A.

Conservation area matters, for example building materials used or poorly maintained pavements are handled by the local Kingston upon Thames planning authority. English Heritage, a government body, have conducted a survey and created a list in relation to the state of repair of conservation areas along with the vulnerability of the area.

Q.

Will the report on title compiled by the Norbiton conveyancing solicitor report back on the cost of the council tax for a Band F apartment before exchanging contracts?

A.

A property solicitor will approach the council to ask about the correct council tax rates, which should then be added to the conveyancing report on title. Up-to-date rates for Norbiton are listed at the council site.
