Q.

How do we identify a genuinely cheap fee? We are trying to find a discount conveyancing quote.

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many property buyers and sellers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many firms advertise cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra costs may be added into the solicitor's terms. A conveyancing quote should state costs to be paid to third parties, like the local authority, (disbursements). Any additional costs which are listed in the terms should be clearly defined. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

Could my conveyancing costs take into account any additional charges?

A.

Homeward Legal do not charge any additional fees for standard conveyancing. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, which they will not be bound to.

Q.

What length of time can I account for conveyancing often need in South Lambeth?

A.

The time needed to transact a house does vary, influenced by a number of aspects, including the tenure of the property. With our solicitors, your sale, purchase or remortgage is handled as fast as possible, without compromising on service.

A.

Numerous of contaminants caused by environmental factors can harm the resale value of land, such as limestone or gypsum quarrying. An environmental search will give more detail.

Q.

Does my solicitor in South Lambeth do any property conveyancing searches on the London Regency terraced townhouse I am buying?

A.

If taking out a mortgage, your lender mandates the following for South Lambeth: Local Authority Search, Drainage Search and Environmental, and perhaps specific searches such as Contaminated Land.

Q.

Would you recommend taking precautions to circumvent paying stamp duty?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is due on residential property over £125,000. Stamp duty avoidance is not advised. These schemes are often uneconomical and unreliable. There have been a small number of official schemes, such as disadvantaged area relief.

Q.
