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.

There are a growing number useful publications giving details on how to do DIY conveyancing. Do I need to instruct a property lawyer in Shortlands for my home move?

A.

It is possible to do the legal work unaided. The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor takes care of a significant number of activities ranging from liaising with the insolvency office for k15 entries or checking for any restrictive covenants most of which need a qualified solicitor. Despite that solicitors practices are under a duty to carry insurance to insulate you from any failures on the part of the solicitor.

Q.

How do we get out of paying for HMRC stamp duty?

Homeward Legal do not recommend clients expose their finances to any form of stamp duty mitigation scheme, as such schemes are highly expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later and the total stamp duty tax may be payable, along with interest and penalties.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Shortlands?

A.

Shortlands is located in London Borough of Bromley Council, Civic Centre, Stockwell Close, Bromley, BR1 3UH, contact: 020 8464 3339

Q.

How soon is it appropriate to find a solicitor to act on our sale?

A.

With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, the sooner the better, as there are several tasks that may be performed straight away. Promptly instructing a solicitor for a purchase means that you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process.

Q.

Will a solicitor in Shortlands get any conveyancing searches on the London Victorian detached home I am purchasing

A.

Q.

What can the fees for the conveyancing searches total?

A.

Shortlands searches ranges in cost. Conveyancing searches are paid to a third party.

Q.

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