Q.

How do we find a discount conveyancing estimate?

A.

Various conveyancers purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs will be included in the solicitor's terms that buyers often do not check. Costs found in the terms should be fair. Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.

Q.

We are purchasing a £175000. How is stamp duty calculated?

A.

The Stamp Duty you will owe will depend on the valuation. On a £175000 property, stamp duty will be £1750.*

*This information correct as of March 2013

Q.

How much time can the legal work to buy property often take? We need to move quickly.

A.

For the majority of home movers, the number of weeks needed to sell or purchase property does vary, with reference to a number of factors, for example, if either party has a mortgage. 8 to 12 weeks is the average for many firms, whereas our solicitors work for a deadline of six weeks.

Q.

I am buying a an extended property in a conservation area in Petersfield, how do I locate information relating to the state of repair?

A.

Conservation areas in Petersfield are set up by the local authority (East Hampshire) who govern things like street furniture to the hindrance of plastic box signs. English Heritage, a government body, have assembled records of the state of repair of conservation areas in addition to the trend of the area.

Q.

Will the Petersfield conveyancer carry out any conveyancing searches on the Hampshire period semi-detached home I want to buy?

A.

The routine legal protocol is to get Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search and Environment Search as well as any less common searches such as Commons Registration (CON290).

Q.

The local agent has referred a lawyer whom they usually use. Will it be cheaper to instruct them?

A.

Estate agent recommendations are a common way for home buyers to find a solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, the agent may recommend the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

As a consequence of the fact that 2 8m people are at risk from surface flooding we are worried that flood risk searches may not be detailed enough?

A.

Conveyancing and environmental searches carried out by the solicitor in Petersfield will also include a far more in depth search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are still anxious you can always call a neighbour or local resident.

Q.

At what point should we find a conveyancer in Petersfield?

A.

The short answer is, the sooner the better, as conveyancing involves several tasks that can be carried out straight away. Instructing your solicitor sooner could mitigate the chance of the sale or purchase falling though.
