Q.

Although there are lots of £99 fixed quotes online, how do we find a reputable one? We need fixed rate conveyancing.

A.

Many property lawyers advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra charges are often hiding in small print. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Your quote must also state costs to be paid to third parties, such as the Land Registry, (disbursements).

Q.

We have a requirement to complete on the sale of a home asap, are you very fast Southport solicitors ?

A.

Regularly property lawyers are extremely sluggish causing further stress to the home selling process. Our solicitors approach is different as we have invested in leading edge e conveyancing systems .

Importantly , we allocate you a firm qualified to communicate end to end throughout the chain property chain (line of buyers and sellers) .

Q.

What are 'conveyancing searches' in regard to?

A.

These searches are a prescribed set of enquiries performed for the buyer, for example a chancel liability search. These searches will only cover legal-related matters.

Q.

The property seller appears to have added unfitting doors to the flat in Southport which may exclude conservation area guidelines

A.

A solicitor will carry out searches identify whether the property is inside a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have appropriate consent from the Sefton planning authority.

Q.

I am going to a property auction and will would like ensure a fast conveyancing transaction, how could we accelerate our conveyancing process?

A.

The key to a fast transaction is to employing a proactive, diligent conveyancing solicitor. When finding a conveyancing solicitor, ask yourself the following: Do they offer 'instant' online quotes? What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase. Will they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?

Q.

When in the conveyancing process is it appropriate to arrange a solicitor to act for us?

A.

With few exceptions, the faster you instruct the better, as the legal work can begin immediately. Some authors suggest waiting before instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but you will then be at a serious disadvantage in the event of a contract race, or buyer eager to move quickly.

Q.

We are purchasing a £531000. What should be determined for stamp duty?

A.

The rate of stamp duty which will be owed will rely on the valuation. Stamp duty will be £21240 on a £531000 house.*

*Correct as of June 2012

Q.

Is contaminated land an issue for most homes in Southport?

A.

Several contaminants may spoil land. Issues like sand or gravel pits and other land contamination will be reported on in environmental search results.
