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.

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.

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.

Is a retention fee a disbursement or a fee?

A.

Disbursements and fees should be identified on your quote. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in the quote for your conveyancing.

Q.

Does a Redbridge property solicitor conduct any searches on the London Sixties detached home I am intending to purchase?

A.

If purchasing and getting a mortgage the lender mandates at least these searches - Local Authority, Drainage Search and Environment Search, and perhaps special local Redbridge searches, like a Planning and local information.

Q.

Is Homeward Legal able to 28 day completions on the conveyancing for auction properties in Redbridge?

A.

In fact we put together legal documentation for vendors and commonly handle the legal work for buyers and sellers at auction. Lawyers tend to advocate bidders to formally appoint their property lawyer well in advance of the auction for a thorough review of the auction legal papers.

Thereafter, following the day of bidding, a property conveyancing lawyer needs to be able to concentrate on quickly complete the transaction inside 28 days as typically required by the standard auction conditions.

Q.

We are buying in Redbridge on a recently-developed brownfield site. Is the soil potentially contaminated?

A.

There are legislative rules in place to control soil contamination. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Redbridge, including local authorities.

Q.

When in the process is it appropriate to instruct a conveyancing solicitor to act on our purchase?

A.

Whether you are buying or selling in Redbridge, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as there are several tasks that may be performed straight away. Promptly instructing a solicitor for your Redbridge transaction for a sale can mean that documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process, whereas if you are buying you will the details of your Redbridge solicitor ready when you make an offer.
