Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

Lack of clarity over this matter catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers promote so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional fees may be added into the small print. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Does homewardlegal.co.uk specialise the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Park Langley?

A.

Homeward Legal is very knowledgeable with residential property auction procedures. Often more complicated to convey houses like thatched cottages, are purchased at property auctions which tend to require greater fact-finding. Lawyers therefore advise that bidders appoint a qualified lawyer before the auction to allow enough time for a detailed review of the legal pack. Subsequently, immediately after the auction day arrives, your lawyer is fully prepared to quickly conclude the legal process in less than the 4 week time frame as required by the auction conditions.

Q.

Could Park Langley soil be contaminated by mercury (Hg)?

A.

Though the dangers are usually minor, contaminated land areas are labelled as such if the danger to the environment is judged to be too great. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including perchlorate and water contaminants such as silage.

Q.

What are the pitfalls if buying country house in a Bromley local authority designated conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the legal due diligence when buying a property includes procurement of searches of Bromley planning authority to determine conservation area status and the required permission for any modifications. In the absence of any consents the solicitor will advise you of all options, which include getting from Bromley planning authority or taking out indemnity insurance.

Q.

Does your Park Langley lawyer do any searches on the London Fifties terraced home I want to buy?

A.

Q.

Q.

Our estate agent in Cotham has suggested the firm of solicitors. Will it be cheaper to use this solicitor?

A.

If you choose a conveyancer referred through this route, you the agent is able to persuade a slow solicitor to work faster. Such referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as some agents may 'recommend' the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

How do we calculate stamp duty rates and what amount should we budget for a £238000 residential property?
