Q.

How do we find a discount conveyancing quote in Poplar?

A.

Both high-street and online firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra fees are frequently hidden in the small print. Busy, stressed property buyers and sellers ignore these terms at their peril. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What can we do if we buy a loft conversion within the boundary of a Tower Hamlets planning authority designated conservation area ?

A.

Part of conveyancing involves procurement of searches of Tower Hamlets council to identify conservation area status and the required permission for any modifications. Local Authority searches are charged at cost to the purchaser.

Q.

What length of time should we plan for conveyancing to purchase a home need?

A.

The amount of time taken to transfer property does vary. This wide range results from a range of concerns such as if the lender requires specific searches. For most firms in England and Wales, the average is between 8 to 12 weeks, but we drive the process forwards, completing within eight weeks.

Q.

What do we need to know about 'fixtures and fittings'?

A.

Purchasers are frequently confused by the vagueness surrounding fixtures and fittings. The need to clarify this is regularly not considered, making the approval of the list of fixtures and fittings essential.

Q.

When do you need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Poplar?

A.

The short answer is, earlier is preferable, as there are a number of tasks that can be performed straight away. Early instruction of a firm to act on your Poplar sale or purchase can reduce any chance of the sale or purchase falling though.

Q.

How is Poplar contaminated land investigated?

A.

Property may have been contaminated by a broad range of natural causes and human activities. Issues such as shallow mining should be considered as part of the appropriate search.

Q.

Our purchase will complete on 25th March, what should be calculated for stamp duty?

A.

The Stamp Duty owed depends on the purchase price of the home. It will be £31840 on a £796000 property.*

Q.

Should we use a property lawyer who commonly works with by my estate agent in Hammersmith?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers may refer a conveyancing firm. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may decide to recommend the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.
