Q.

I need to find discount conveyancing in Shepperton. Can you assist?

A.

Many home owners seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates. Many firms advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement that home owners often do not check. Additional costs listed in terms and conditions should be reasonable and only apply to matters if the lawyer is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.

Q.

Do your solicitors deal with the conveyancing for residential property auction properties in Shepperton?

A.

We are highly experienced with auction buyers and sellers. Solicitors always advise buyers to select a property lawyer well in advance of the date of the auction to allow for a thorough review of the legal documents.

Thereafter, following the auction day arrives a lawyer must be prepared for carry out the purchase legal work in under 28 days as typically required by the terms of sale.

Q.

Are charges for obtaining copies of building regulation approval disbursements or fees?

A.

Each fee and disbursement should be identified on a quote, with no additional charges of any kind in the small print. These costs are fees not disbursements, and should be included in the quote for your conveyancing.

Q.

Property lawyers in Shepperton order varied searches when they are instructed by a property buyer, which specific ones?

A.

If buying and obtaining a mortgage lender will expect specific searches, including the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental, and perhaps specific local searches e.g. a HS2 report.

Q.

We have a requirement to exchange on the legal process our maisonette within 28 days, are you fast solicitors in Shepperton ?

A.

Generally property solicitors practices are slow creating further stress to the property legal process.

We always work with conveyancers that try to exert pressure from the start to the end of the property chain (sequence of buyers and sellers) . Moreover , our property lawyers are selected because they use speed focused case and work flow systems technology to finish the property sale asap.

Q.

Should we get a building surveyor to look into the property purchase?

A.

It is suggested that all buyers order a building survey if you are intending to buy in Shepperton. There can be many concerns that can negatively affect a property, that a lender's valuation survey, for example, will not cover, such as cracks around door frames and poor drainage.

Q.

Will my Shepperton lawyer report back to me about the cost of the council tax on a Band E house prior to exchange of contracts?

A.

Your property lawyer will write to the Elmbridge local authority to find out the relevant council tax band and rates, which should then be set out in the conveyancer's title report. The latest tax rates for homes in Shepperton are listed on the Elmbridge council site. On 20 December 2012 the rates are:

  • Band A - £1,035.00
  • Band B - £1,208.00
  • Band C - £1,381.00
  • Band D - £1,553.00
  • Band E - £1,898.00
  • Band F - £2,243.00
  • Band G - £2,588.00
  • Band H - £3,106.00

Q.

Is gazumping usual in Shepperton?

A.

Gazumping describes circumstances where a seller approves an offer and then rejects it in favour of a greater offer. This may happen weeks into a transaction. The will be a risk of getting gazumped in any transaction, because offers are not binding until exchange of contracts. Instructing an efficient solicitor as soon as you can to handle your transaction should help to reduce the likelihood of gazumping.
