Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £102,000 property?

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often additional charges are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Additional charges listed in terms and conditions should be reasonable. They only apply to matters if your solicitor must complete additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

Will the home's form for fixtures and fittings list bathroom suites?

A.

House purchasers in Sawbridgeworth are frequently confused by the lack of detail regarding fixtures and fittings. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

What will the council tax cost me for a investment Band G apartment in Sawbridgeworth?

A.

The relevant council tax band should conventionally be identified within the title report along with the local authority. Correct charges for Sawbridgeworth are set out in detail online at the Epping Forest local authority site. Currently (08 January 2013) rates are:

  • Band A - £998.00
    >
  • Band B - £1,164.00
  • Band C - £1,330.00
  • Band D - £1,496.00
  • Band E - £1,829.00
  • Band F - £2,161.00
  • Band G - £2,494.00
  • Band H - £2,993.00

Q.

The lender will be Scottish Building Society - is there anything I need to consider?

A.

House buyers need to be aware that a small number of lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, resulting in increased conveyancing costs for buyers if a second solicitor is required by their lender. Homeward Legal, however, can act for all major lenders in the UK.

Q.

Should I get a chancel liability search? I am buying next to a 1700s 'parson's close' in Sawbridgeworth.

A.

Where land in Sawbridgeworth was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to pay for maintenance of specific local church buildings. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Church of England properties in the area include Great St Mary.

Q.

What causes conveyancing for a sale to seem to be so slow? We had several delays with our previous solicitor.

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase property will occasionally take more time than initially expected, Homeward Legal, however, endeavour to minimise the effect of these delays if it is possible to do so.

Q.

Do you state looking into how to defer paying HMRC stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty mitigation should not be considered when purchasing in Sawbridgeworth. These schemes are often uneconomical and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed .

Q.

For a house valued at £829k, how is stamp duty rates calculated?

A.

The Stamp Duty owed is calculated based on the property's value. On a £829k house or flat, stamp duty will be £33160 (accurate March 2013).
