Q.

We are looking for a discount conveyancing quote. What do I need to check for?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional costs can inflate the solicitor's invoice. Additional fees found in your solicitor's terms should be fair and reasonable. Your conveyancing quote should, in addition, define costs to be paid to third parties, e.g. the Land Registry, (disbursements).

Q.

We are buying with Nationwide, what will I need to know?

A.

Traditionally, solicitors could carry out mortgage-related work for most lenders. Some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating higher conveyancing costs for property purchasers. Homeward Legal, though, are able to act for most UK mortgage lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay your lender's conveyancing fees.

Q.

How much would our searches cost?

With Homeward Legal, you will be expected to pay at most £249 for a standard search bundle. Searches are disbursements, and will not be included in a solicitor's fees.

Q.

How is SDLT calculated?

A.

The Stamp Duty rate you must pay is calculated with reference to the house or flat's price. Stamp duty will be £38040 on a £951000 house.*

Q.

What can a Reigate conveyancing solicitor do if the property we hope to purchase is situated in a registered conservation area and has ugly satellite dishes added?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor will see if the property is located within a conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have the essential consent.

Q.

I have read about the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since on record we are concerned that environmental searches won't be sufficient?

A.

Flood searches handled by the conveyancing solicitor in Reigate should include the more thorough search (Landmark) if required.

If you remain worried you could attempt to call a neighbour of the property or nearby Surrey flood repair expert, such as: Matt Clark Decorating, 68 Prices Lane, Reigate, RH2 8AY Tel: 01737 778576.

Q.

Are there companies who remediate contaminated soil in Reigate?

A.

Remediation can often be possible, although it can be expensive. For more insight, contact Green Intentions Ltd, Woodstock Cottage/1 West Rd, Reigate, RH2 7JU.

Q.

What sort of flood plain searches into the risk of flooding around Surrey will a solicitor in Reigate actually do?

A.

A necessary step in the legal process of buying a property involves the lawyer carrying out environmental searches that go in certain details regarding Reigate area flood risk. Also as an additional measure a property lawyer in Reigate could possibly advocate a more involved (e.g. Landmark) detailed search.
