Q.

A.

Brixton London Windmill, London National Portrait Gallery Art Gallery and Temple Middle Temple Hall Historic Building are close to North West London.

Q.

How do we find a cheap solicitor for purchasing a leasehold flat?

A.

Many online and high street law firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra charges will be included in the terms of engagement. Your quote should also clearly state applicable disbursements. Any extra costs included in terms of engagement should be fair and clearly defined and only come into force where your conveyancer must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

The estate agent we are using in North West London has offered the firm of solicitors that they have used before. Will it be more cost-effective to instruct this firm?

A.

Many estate agents will have referral deals with solicitors where they refer clients to them. Such referrals should be compared against alternatives, as the agent may recommend whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

What can I do to get out of paying SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty usually must be paid for homes sold for more than 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty scheme should not be considered. These schemes are costly and very risky. There have been a number of official schemes, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers. A conveyancing solicitor should confirm whether you are eligible.

Q.

Is the Stamp Duty Land Tax fee a disbursement or fee?

A.

Unfortunately, some firms frequently hide additional costs as disbursements. It may not be clear if a cost is a fee or disbursement, and whether it should be included. This charge is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your quote.

Q.

I want to exchange on the legal process a flat within 6 weeks - are you fast North West London property lawyers ?

In addition , our panel of solicitors are selected because they rely on the best case and work flow systems to complete on your move with minimal stress.

Q.

How early is it appropriate to instruct a solicitor?

A.

With few exceptions, the earlier in the process you can instruct a solicitor, the better, as there are several tasks that may be performed immediately. Early instruction of a solicitor to act on your North West London sale or purchase for a sale can mean that documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process, whereas if you are buying you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer.

Q.

We are buying a property where the seller appears to have fitted unsympathetic satellite dishes on the home in North West London which I think might contravene conservation area criteria

Your lawyer to determine if your new home is located within a conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have the requisite consents from the Brent authority.

Q.

When buying a 1940s maisonette in a designated conservation areas. Where does one locate more information about the state of repair of the area?
