Q.

Many online and high street firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing. However extra charges are often hiding in the small print. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

In relation to the major flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands I am questioning if flood risk searches might not be thorough enough?

A.

A diligent property solicitor in Spalding will consider get additional flood searches if the initial searches spots a risk of flooding in Spalding.

Q.

How do we protect ourselves from gazumping?

A.

This occurs when a house seller approves the first buyer's offer, only to reject it in favour of a higher offer. It could happen only days prior to exchange. There is almost always a risk of being gazumped. You should instruct a fast, efficient solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.

Q.

Can we bypass paying for stamp duty?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax commonly must be paid on homes sold for more than £125,000. Homeward Legal do not recommend home buyers get involved with any stamp duty reduction, because these schemes are costly and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed .

Q.

I am likely to move from our semi detached residence in Spalding into our new flat in Skellingthorpe . What is the optimum stage to select a house removal firm?

A.

The ideal way is to hold off booking a removal firm until the point where everyone has firmed up an absolute date which occurs after contracts have exchanged.

Q.

Is simultaneous exchange and completion a disbursement or fee?

A.

Unfortunately, some firms hide extra costs as necessary disbursements. It is not always obvious whether a cost is a fee or not, and if it ought to be included. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a conveyancing quote.
