Q.

We need to find the cheapest conveyancing quote. and what is included?

A.

This catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional charges will be included in the terms of engagement. Your Shortlands conveyancing quote ought to list the disbursements to be paid.Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

Nationwide Building Society is our lender, is there anything we need to check?

A.

Some lenders have reduced the number of firms able to act for them. Homeward Legal will act for the vast majority of mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

What can a Shortlands conveyancing lawyer advise if the maisonette we are buying is inside the boundary of a Bromley local authority conservation area which has unsanctioned cladding fitted to it?

Bromley planning authority searches conducted by your solicitor should ascertain if the Shortlands property a conservation area proof of permission for modifications will be asked for.

Q.

I am completing next July. What will be calculated for Stamp Duty Land Tax?

A.

The Stamp Duty which will be owed will depend on the house's price. On a £419000 property, stamp duty will be £12570.

Q.

We have requested a quote from you. Might there be any extra costs?

A.

Homeward Legal never charge any hidden extra fees for any reason. Some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

Q.

Do fixtures and fittings include things like radiators?

A.

Generally speaking, fixtures are permanently fixed to walls and other surfaces and fixtures are free-standing. 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.

How can we check that a property is in a conservation area?

A.

These areas categorise regions designated as being of special architectural or historic interest. These restrictions can add to maintenance costs, but the benefits include security that the surroundings are unlikely to change.

Q.

Is a house survey necessary if we are buying property in Shortlands?

A.

It is strongly suggested that home buyers arrange a RICS survey. There can be a range of issues that have a negative impact on a property. These can include wet rot or insect infestation, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.
