Q.

How do I find the best conveyancing rates for a £265k house?

A.

Confusion over this issue catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing, however additional costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions which unwary homeowners fail to check. Any fees found in terms and conditions should be clearly defined. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We are completing in July. What should be calculated for stamp duty?

A.

The Stamp Duty that will be due will depend on the valuation. For a house in St Johns Wood valued at £652000, SDLT will be £26080.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if I am intending to buy in the parish of Greenford?

A.

Regardless of the St Johns Wood parish in which you are buying, the lawyer might recommend that a chancel search be taken out. Although some parish councils have chosen to charge chancel repairs on the

current owners, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will continue to be unaffected.

Q.

In regards to the extensive flooding in the UK in April 2012 I am apprehensive that flood searches might not be thorough enough?

A.

The St Johns Wood conveyancing solicitor will consider carry out in depth environmental searches if the first conveyancing searches spots a St Johns Wood flooding risk.

For greater area background perhaps you could converse with a local resident.

Q.

Is there any comprehensive published record on the upkeep of the conservation areas in St Johns Wood?

English Heritage, a government body, have created details in relation to the state of conservation areas as well as the vulnerability to deterioration.

Q.

Which factors will contaminate land in St Johns Wood. Will they be checked for comprehensively?

A.

Residential property in St Johns Wood could be contaminated by a wide range of natural and human-influenced issues, and factors like infilled land or pollution incidents will be detailed in an appropriate search.

Q.

Godiva Mortgages will be our mortgage lender - what do I need to know?

A.

Some lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel', which may result in increased conveyancing costs for buyers. We are able to act on behalf of most UK mortgage lenders, ensuring that an additional chosen solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.

Q.

We have had a quote from you. Might we be billed any hidden costs?

A.

Homeward Legal will never charge any additional charges for conveyancing in St Johns Wood. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes. The final bill you receive may be much more.
