Q.

How do I find the best rates for conveyancing for a £667,000 house?

A.

Lack of clarity over this topic catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional costs will be included in the terms. Extra charges should be fair and come into force only if the lawyer must perform additional tasks for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

What can we do to avoid paying stamp duty to HM Revenue?

A.

We firmly advise against any stamp duty reduction scheme, as such schemes are often uneconomical and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later and the total stamp duty tax may be payable.

Q.

How can we confirm that a house is in a conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas recognise local areas of historical merit. Your conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise further and discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a Thirties mid-terrace house in Sandhurst?

Typically a report on title will include the relevant Bracknell Forest council tax band. Up-to-date charges for homes in Sandhurst are tabled at the Bracknell Forest council website. At the time of writing, 01 October 2012, the different rates are:

  • Band A - £912.00
  • Band B - £1,064.00
  • Band C - £1,216.00
  • Band D - £1,368.00
  • Band E - £1,672.00
  • Band F - £1,975.00
  • Band G - £2,279.00
  • Band H - £2,735.00

Q.

The current owner has unfortunately added incongruous dormer windows on the property in Sandhurst which we think might possibly defy nearby conservation area criteria

A.

Your lawyer will make enquiries to find out if the property is affected by a conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have the required consent.

Q.

We ideally want to complete on the legal process our house very quickly, are you very fast Sandhurst solicitors ?

A.

Frequently property solicitors companies can be too unhurried which causes a lot of annoyance to the house moving process.

Homeward Legals home moving lawyers approach is different as we use the latest document and form assembly systems . Crucially , we always assign you a solicitor practiced at communicate through the whole of the property chain .

Q.

What amount of time does conveyancing take, on average?

A.

The length of time needed to transfer a home may vary, affected by potentially many issues which may affect the property including if management information is required. Homeward Legal solicitors ensure your sale, purchase or remortgage is undertaken as quickly as possible.

Q.

Could the charges for my conveyancing for my Sandhurst move cover any hidden costs?

A.

Unfortunately, sellers must read the terms of their conveyancing quote careful to identify any hidden fees. Homeward Legal's solicitors will not charge any additional costs. Under the circumstances, it may be that your case requires an separate piece of legal work, such as a lease extension, but you will be made aware of any fees pertaining to such work before they are incurred.
