Q.

How do we get affordable conveyancing in Royston?

A.

Confusion over this point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement.

Q.

What can we do to bypass paying out for stamp duty land tax?

A.

Stamp duty scheme should not be considered when purchasing in Royston, as such schemes are often uneconomical and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later imposing fines and reviewing all your revenue matters.

Q.

The Royston house being purchased is on a brownfield site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

Soil contamination is carefully monitored. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Royston, including local authorities.

Q.

We are interested in purchasing in Royston. Are there many designated conservation areas in the area?

A.

Conservation areas pinpoint streets and neighbourhoods of architectural or historic interest. Your conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise further and address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area.

Q.

What conveyancing searches should the property lawyer in Royston get when acting on a Royston flat?

A.

Normal legal protocol will be to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental and, depending on certain criteria, specific searches such as Utilities Search.

Q.

What does a Royston property lawyer do when the home we are buying is in a local authority conservation area and has unsightly roof aerials installed?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor will check whether your proposed purchase is located within a conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have necessary consent from the local council.

Q.

What can charge for the searches be?

A.

With Homeward Legal, you will be expected to pay no more than £249 for conveyancing searches. Conveyancing searches are disbursements paid to a third party.

Q.

I am on a tight deadline and need ensure a fast conveyancing transaction, how can we speed things up?

A.

Key to a fast completion is to employing a experienced solicitor. When identifying an appropriate a solicitor, you should ask yourself the following: How soon will they order searches? Do they offer 'instant' online quotes? Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
