Q.

How do we get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Standish?

A.

Many solicitors advertise cheap conveyancing, but additional charges will be included in the terms and conditions which unwary buyers fail to check. Any extra costs should be clearly defined. A quote for conveyancing in Standish should also state any disbursements to be paid.

Q.

We have taken out a conveyancing quote from you. May there be any supplementary hidden charges?

A.

Homeward Legal will not charge any hidden extra costs for your legal work. Be aware that some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.

Q.

Please state how to get out of paying out for SDLT?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax must be paid for houses sold for more than £125,000. We strongly advise against any stamp duty reduction, as such schemes are costly and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.

Q.

If I am purchasing a Standish home on the same street as a rectory manor, is it necessary to get a chancel search?

The result of a court case between a parish council and owners of neighbouring farmland liable for church repairs reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must pay for church repairs. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. Standish ecclesiastical properties include St Nicholas and St Wilfrid.
