Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? I need affordable conveyancing.

A.

Many firms advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra costs are frequently hidden in small print.

Q.

Is your panel of solicitors set up to 1 month completions on the conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Northwood?

A.

All of our property conveyancers regularly take instructions from sellers at auction. Homeward Legal strongly recommend bidders to choose an auction experienced property lawyer well in advance of the day of the auction for a thorough review of the legal pack. Subsequently, immediately after the date of the auction, the lawyer is able to concentrate on get through the purchase legal work in 4 weeks, a normal requirement of .

Q.

For a residential property valued at £309000, how is stamp duty rates determined?

The Stamp Duty due is dependent on a limited set of factors, most importantly the purchase price. It will be £9270 on a £309000 property (source: www.hmrc.gov.uk, March 2013).

Q.

What are the alternatives if we acquire a loft conversion in a Hillingdon council designated conservation area ?

A.

Part of the due diligence for buyers involves the making of enquiries of the Hillingdon authority to verify conservation area status and the requisite consent for any changes. Should no necessary permissions be produced the solicitor will recommend the options such as obtaining an indemnity insurance policy or obtaining retrospective permission from the appropriate local authority.

Q.

What factors will affect land in Northwood. Are they an issue?

A.

Land in Northwood can be contaminated by a broad range of environmental concerns. Issues like masts or pylons or nearby waste management facilities should be considered as part of the appropriate search.

Q.

Do you work with mortgage lenders with Northwood branches?

A.

Northwood lenders and mortgage specialists include Nationwide Building Society Branch, 9 Maxwell Rd, Northwood, HA6 2GN, Lynx Financial Services, Lynx House/Ferndown, Northwood, HA6 1PQ, and Mortgage & Insurance Solutions, 115 Hilliard Rd, Northwood, HA6 1SL.

Q.

Do we need to choose the solicitor suggested by our estate agent?

A.

Agent recommendations are a common practice path for purchasers to get a solicitor. Such referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as some agents may 'recommend' the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

We have found a buyer and have a quote from you. Could there be any supplementary hidden charges?

A.

No. Homeward Legal's solicitors never hide any hidden extra charges. Some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates, which could be totally different to your final invoice.
