Q.

How do I get the best conveyancing rates in Sidcup for a £296,000 property?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many firms promote cheap conveyancing quotes, however extra fees can inflate your final invoice. Any costs included in the small print ought to be fair and only apply in cases where your lawyer must complete unanticipated additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

Northern Rock is our mortgage lender - is there anything I need to be aware of?

A.

Traditionally, almost all solicitors could perform legal work for both buyers and mortgage lenders. Some lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them. For buyers, this can result in significantly increased conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal can act for many mortgage lenders.

Q.

We are buying a restored chapel in Grain. Will a chancel search be compulsory?

A.

The solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be taken out, whichever parish where the home being bought is

located. In Sidcup's much older areas, chancel repair can be imposed on new owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. For property in the parish of Grain, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Are your house conveyancing solicitors geared up for 1 month completions on the conveyancing of auction properties in Sidcup?

A.

We are property auction specialists and commonly carry out work for bidders at auction. It is very important for purchasers to formally appoint a qualified solicitor as rapidly as they can to allow for a detailed report of the legal pack prior to the day of bidding.

After the day of bidding, a conveyancing lawyer will be geared up to rapidly finalise the legal work within the 4 week time frame, a normal requirement of auction conditions.

Q.

For a residential property valued at £97000, what should be calculated for SDLT?

A.

Stamp Duty is dependent on the purchase price. For a property bought for £97000, the rate will be £0.*

Q.

What inquiry in relation to the risk of a flood in the Kent region will the conveyancing solicitor in Sidcup report back to us on?

A.

A qualified conveyancing lawyer will apply for official conveyancing searches that will include Sidcup flood risk data.

Q.

We have a home to purchase. How do we arrange a fast conveyancing transaction?

A.

Contacting a communicative conveyancer is essential to a fast conveyancing transaction. That said, there are a number of tasks you can also do to speed up your conveyancing, including, pushing the conveyancer to begin enquiries as soon as possible, answering any queries raised by your conveyancer as soon as possible and clarifying your mortgage lender's requirements.

Q.

We are buying in Sidcup. Can I establish whether the property is in a conservation area?

A.

Buyers in Sidcup should be aware of several local conservation areas. Your conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise further and confirm potential liability for unauthorised works.
