Q.

Q.

I need to find fixed rate conveyancing. How do I get a quote?

A.

Various solicitors purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional costs are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. A quote for conveyancing in Smithfield should list any disbursements.We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Would you advise that I get a chancel search? We are buying in Smithfield.

A.

Owners of property proximate to an old church building are expected to subsidise repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Smithfield property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners.

Q.

Is homewardlegal.co.uk experienced enough to 28 day completions on the conveyancing for property auction properties in Smithfield?

A.

In fact we work with auctioneers throughout City Of London and often take instructions from sellers at auction. We usually suggest purchasers to select an affordable lawyer well before the property auction for a detailed report.

Post date of the auction a prepared conveyancing lawyer has to be fully prepared to rapidly finalise the conveyancing process in under a month as conventionally required by the terms of sale.

Q.

We need to complete this house purchase as soon as possible, how do we ensure fast legal work in Smithfield?

A.

Essential to fast conveyancing is to use a proactive, diligent solicitor. There are various jobs you could do. These include:

  • confirming your mortgage offer
  • keeping in regular contact with the solicitor
  • answering any queries raised by the solicitor as soon as possible

Q.

How is SDLT calculated and what should it be on a £942000 home?

A.

The Stamp Duty you must pay will rely on the purchase price. Stamp duty will be £37680 on a £942000 house or flat.

Q.

Should I get a surveying expert to inspect the house purchase?

A.

It is heavily suggested that all buyers order an inspection if you are planning to buy in Smithfield. A wide range of concerns have a negative impact on a property, for example unsafe chimney circulation and cavity wall tie failure. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

What factors will impact land in Smithfield?

A.

Many of contaminants caused by natural causes may spoil residential property in Smithfield, and an environmental search will confirm that a home is impacted by contaminants in the region such as nearby waste management facilities.

Q.

The current owner has added inappropriate dormer windows to the flat which I think may infringe on Smithfield conservation area criteria.

A.

City of London local authority LLC1 searches conducted by a property lawyer will determine whether the property is within a conservation area proof of council approval for modifications will be required. In the absence of any appropriate consents, your solicitor will inform you of the alternatives which include requesting from City of London planning authority or purchasing an indemnity insurance policy.
