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.

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.

If we plan to purchase near Poplar, in the parish of Tottenham, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Your solicitor responsible for your move may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged

on the owners of a house where parish councils have previously chosen not to do so, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

I am anxious about the council tax rates on a Sixties mid-terrace property in Poplar, how much are they?

A.

Customarily the conveyancing report on title will provide the appropriate Tower Hamlets council tax band. Up-to-date charges for properties in Poplar are tabled at the Tower Hamlets local authority site. At the time of writing on 02/12/2012 the different rates are:

  • Band F - £1,722.00
  • Band G - £1,987.00
  • Band H - £2,384.00

Q.

How much would our searches be?

A.

With a Homeward Legal conveyancing solicitor, clients are charged at a maximum £249 for conveyancing searches for a Poplar purchase. Conveyancing searches are charged 'at cost'.

Q.

We want fast Poplar property lawyers, is that your solicitors?

A.

Frequently property solicitors may be tardy which usually adds even more stress to the property moving process.

Homeward Legals solicitors approach is different - we use new case management systems . Crucially we assign you a solicitor qualified to communicate through the whole of the property chain (line of buyers and sellers) .

Q.

Is the High Speed 2 line going to affect Hammersmith and Fulham property?

A.

Yes. HS2 Phase 1 will impact numerous property in the local authority of Hammersmith and Fulham, with some Hammersmith residents along the planned line being exposed to years of disruption during HS2's construction.

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.
