Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £504,000 home?

A.

Many solicitors claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra fees may inflate your final invoice. Additional charges listed in your solicitor's terms needs to be reasonable and only apply to matters if your lawyer is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

What steps can we take to circumvent paying out for stamp duty to HM Revenue?

A.

Stamp duty usually must be paid for property sold for over £125,000. Stamp duty avoidance is not recommended, as such schemes are costly and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed . There have been certain official schemes, however, such as disadvantaged area relief.

Q.

Will I need to get a chancel search? We are purchasing in Sheen Park.

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. Owners who have bought property

prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance.

Q.

Would acquiring a building survey be sensible when we are buying a house or flat, regardless of its age?

A.

We strongly advise that property purchasers instruct a home surveyor to perform a survey if purchasing in Sheen Park. There can be many issues that can negatively affect a property, that a lender's valuation survey, for example, will not cover. These include cracks around door frames or rotten roof timbers.

Q.

Which of the Sheen Park mortgage lender panels are you on?

The property lawyer handling your case should be able to confirm additional costs or hurdles associated with your chosen lender.

Q.

My friend has experience of handling the legal work as a buyer of a flat , Is it prudent to take care of all of the legal work myself?

A.

Technically there is no reason why you cant look after the legal and technical work yourself.

The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor typically handles a long list of exercises e.g. identifying and arranging appropriate indemnity or representing the mortgage lender some of which really need a skilled professional.

Nevertheless lawyers are obligated to possess the correct insurance cover that ultimately protects you from any losses you encounter.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Sheen Park?

A.

Sheen Park is located in London Borough of Richmond upon Thames Council, Civic Centre, 44 York Street, Twickenham, Middlesex, TW1 3BZ, phone: 08456 122 666

Q.

Is a chancel repair liability search a disbursement or fee?

A.

Some solicitors hide extra costs as necessary disbursements. It may not be obvious whether a cost is a fee or disbursement, and if it should be included. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on at cost.
