Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? I am trying to find discount conveyancing.

A.

Confusion over this point affects many home owners who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many property lawyers promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra charges are frequently hidden in the small print. Any additional fees should be reasonable. Applicable disbursements should be included on any quote for conveyancing in PrestwichHomeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

How much time will I budget for the legal work to transact a house require, on average?

A.

Generally speaking, the amount of time required to transact property varies, with reference to a number of factors. Homeward Legal strive to ensure a sale, purchase or transfer of equity receives fast and efficient service.

Q.

Can I hold off paying out for stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

We strongly advise against any form of stamp duty reduction scheme. These schemes are costly and very risky. There have been a range of legitimate initiatives, however, such as disadvantaged area relief. A conveyancing solicitor should confirm whether you are eligible.

Q.

I am purchasing a £928k. What should be calculated for stamp duty?

A.

The Stamp Duty that will be due is dependent on the home's value. On a £928k home, stamp duty will be £37120.

Q.

Will I need a building surveyor to view the home we intend to purchase?

A.

It is firmly advised that you arrange a building survey. Many defects affect a property, for example unsafe chimney circulation. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

Which local factors can affect land in Prestwich?

A.

Property in Prestwich is contaminated by a wide range of environmental concerns, like nearby electrical substations and local waste transfer sites. An environmental search can provide much more clarity.

Q.

Should I make use of the law firm that works with by our estate agent in Cheadle?

A.

It is common for agents to refer a solicitor. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, it may be the case that the agent recommends the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

What do conveyancing searches refer to?

A.

Searches are a typical pack of enquiries performed on behalf of the party intending to buy the property, and will only cover issues with the property's title.
