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.
Our recommended conveyancing firms in Sandhurst often get instructed by auction buyers and sellers. We always encourage auction buyers to choose the property conveyancing lawyer in advance of the date of the auction to give enough time for a thorough review of the auction pack.
After the date of the auction, the lawyer must be prepared for complete the legal side of things within the 28 day time frame as usually required by the auction conditions.Q.

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.
Restrictions exist to control soil contamination, decades after exposure the effect of some contaminants can be felt. The local authority for Sandhurst will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.Q.
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.
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.
Regardless of the Sandhurst parish you are purchasing in, the lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. In older areas of Sandhurst, chancel repair may be apportioned on the current owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.
