Q.

We are looking for a property solicitor that offers cheap conveyancing. What are the risks?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many homeowners, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many property lawyers offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges may increase your solicitor's invoice. Any additional costs which are listed in terms of engagement should be fair and only be applied if your conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The conveyancing quote ought to list any disbursements.Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

What can contaminate land in Norton?

A.

Many of contaminants may lessen the desirability residential property in Norton, such as proximity to waste sites and hazardous and regulated installations. An environmental search will give more information.

Q.

How frequent is gazumping?

A.

The practice of deciding to reject an offer which has been accepted after a new buyer makes a more attractive offer is called gazumping. The danger of gazumping is present in any transaction. You should instruct your property solicitor early to reduce the chance of gazumping.

Q.

Do you state taking action to bypass paying for SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty must be paid on purchases sold for more than one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. Homeward Legal do not advise clients arrange any stamp duty reduction scheme. Such schemes are costly and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed and the total stamp duty tax may be payable, along with interest and penalties.

Q.

What causes sale conveyancing legal work to take weeks to complete?

A.

The legal work involved in buying or selling Norton property can be delayed even in the best of circumstances. Sometimes, these causes are beyond the solicitors' influence. We know the needless stress these can cause and work hard to reduce their consequences whenever it is feasible by driving the transaction forward.

Q.

We are buying on a Norton ex-industrial site. Is the top-soil likely to remain contaminated?

A.

Most soils in Norton have some degree of contamination, from industry and natural causes. Metal contamination of soil in Norton is more likely to occur near disused factories or waste management sites. Data on other contaminants, like water contaminants such as silage, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

If we are buying a property by a 1500s rectory manor in Norton, do I need to get a chancel search?

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. A chancel search is used to confirm whether such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Norton churches where a chancel search may be necessary include St Andrew, St Andrew, St Mary and St James.
