Q.

How do I find affordable conveyancing?

A.

This point catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms advertise cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges will be included in the terms. Busy, stressed property buyers and sellers ignore these terms at their peril. Fees included in terms and conditions needs to be reasonable and clear and only apply in cases where the conveyancer must complete additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

Would ordering a home buyers survey be required when we are purchasing residential property?

A.

It is recommended that you instruct a surveyor to undertake a survey if you are planning to buy in Redbridge. There are many concerns that affect a property, including subsidence, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

What are 'fixtures and fittings'?

A.

Property buyers are frequently confused by the vagueness surrounding what fixtures and fittings are included. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

How many weeks can the conveyancing process take, on average?

A.

On average, the length of time taken to transact property varies, based on a number of aspects. With our property specialists, your sale, purchase or remortgage is undertaken as quickly as possible.

Q.

Can you suggest how to get out of paying for HMRC stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty is usually due for purchases priced at over one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. Stamp duty mitigation scheme should not be considered when purchasing in Redbridge, as such schemes are highly expensive and can be very unlikely to succeed. There have been a number of government initiatives, such as disadvantaged area relief. Your solicitor will advise as to your eligibility.

Q.

Are the any designated conservation areas in Redbridge likely to affect us?

A.

The streets and neighbourhoods in or near Redbridge will include several conservation areas. Woodford Bridge and Wanstead Park Wanstead are among the conservation areas in Redbridge. A conveyancing lawyer will address the impact buying in a conservation area may have and provide more details.
