Q.

We are looking for the cheapest conveyancing quote. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Confusion over this matter catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra fees can inflate your final bill. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Is Homeward Legal geared up for 28 day completions on the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Paignton?

A.

Our team are auction specialists and frequently act for buyers at auction. We often advocate auction buyers to formally instruct a SRA regulated conveyancing firm well before the actual auction to allow time for a detailed report of the auction pack.

Subsequently, immediately after the auction day a lawyer will be prepared for conclude the legal side of things in 28 days after exchange of contracts, a requirement of terms of sale.

Q.

How do we avoid paying out for stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty scheme is not recommended for purchases in Paignton, because these schemes are often uneconomical and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after

a sale is completed meaning that the full stamp duty amount will be payable, with potential fines.

Q.

What type of searches into the risk of flooding at Devon will the Paignton property solicitor actually apply for on a Sixties property we are going to purchase?

A.

A conveyancing lawyer will carry out standard formal environmental searches, which include Paignton flood risk area data.

Q.

Has selenium (Se) ever contaminated land in Paignton?

A.

With the history of industry in parts of Paignton, soil contamination is difficult to avoid. Data on many contaminants, such as polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs) and groundwater contaminants like petrol, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

What will the council tax cost on a residential Band H apartment in Paignton?

A.

Your pertinent band will commonly be highlighted within the conveyancing report on title, and by the local council. The latest tax charges for Paignton are listed at the Torbay council site. At the time of authoring, 10 November 2012, rates are:

Q.

Do fixtures and fittings include things like kitchen units?

A.

Buyers in Paignton are regularly frustrated by a lack of clarity around what fixtures and fittings are included. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

We have requested a conveyancing quote from you. Are there any additional fees?

A.

No. Homeward Legal do not hide any hidden extra fees whatsoever. Be aware that some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates, which could be totally different to your final invoice.
