Q.

We are looking for a company that offers cheap conveyancing in Southall. Will we get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Many online and high street property lawyers promote cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms, left unread by preoccupied buyers Any disbursements should be included on your conveyancing quote

Q.

What can searches cost?

A.

Searches range in cost, subject to which searches have been ordered. They are disbursements paid to a third party, and are charged 'at cost'.

Q.

How is SDLT calculated in Southall, and what amount should we budget for a £75000 residential property?

A.

The Stamp Duty that is payable is based on the property's value. It will be £0 on a £75000 house.

Q.

Is contaminated land in Southall an issue for the majority of houses?

A.

A broad range of contaminants caused by environmental factors can lessen the desirability property in Southall, and an environmental search should clarify to what extent a property may be affected by local contaminants like sand or gravel pits.

Q.

We are buying in Southall. How can we find out whether the residence is in a conservation area?

A.

Parts of Southall considered be of 'special architectural and historic interest', like mining villages, may be designated as conservation areas. Conservation areas in Southall include Norwood Green. You may wish to contact the local council for more detail, but your solicitor will investigate this in detail.

Q.

The owner appears to have added unsympathetic removal of chimney stacks to the property which I think may contravene the Norwood Green conservation area guidelines.

A.

Local authority Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search conducted by your solicitor during the legal process will determine whether the property is within a designated conservation area and evidence of planning authority consent for modifications will be asked for.

Q.

Is a deed of variation paid to the solicitor?

A.

Comparing quotes is not always straightforward, considering wide variations in formatting and terminology. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a quote.

Q.

We have taken out a conveyancing quote from you. Could there be any extra fees?

A.

Unfortunately, it is common practice for some firms to hide fees in small print. Homeward Legal never hide any hidden extra fees. Some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote, which they will not be required to adhere to.
