Q.

I am trying to find a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Stratford. How do we get a quote?

A.

Many online and high street property lawyers promote supposedly cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra costs are frequently hidden in the terms. Any charges found in terms and conditions needs to be fair and clearly defined and only be applied if the solicitor is required to complete unexpected extra work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

What amount of time should be allowed for conveyancing take?

A.

For the majority of property purchasers, the amount of time taken to transact a home may vary, based on a range of factors. Our conveyancers work hard to ensure every sale is undertaken as quickly as possible.

Q.

I am purchasing a property with Virgin, is there anything we need to be aware of?

A.

In some cases, lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, which may result in increased legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal, fortunately, are able to act on behalf of many lenders, ensuring that an additional property lawyer will not be required to act for your lender.

Q.

Will my lawyer in Stratford inform me about the amount to be paid of council tax for a Band E property before completion?

A.

The solicitor will consult with the Stratford-on-Avon local council to reveal the applicable council tax band and rates, which will then be set out in the title report.

The latest council tax charges for properties in Stratford are published on the Stratford-on-Avon council site. On 07 November 2012 rates are:

  • Band A - £1,011.00
  • Band B - £1,179.00
  • Band C - £1,348.00
  • Band D - £1,516.00
  • Band E - £1,853.00
  • Band F - £2,190.00
  • Band G - £2,527.00
  • Band H - £3,032.00

Q.

We are preparing to be moving out of our period home in Stratford into a property in Manor Park . At what point to book a removals firm?

A.

Best practice is for buyers to put off booking a removal firm until such time as all parties have accepted by both parties a formal home moving date that regularly takes place after contracts have exchanged. Try Man & Van Stratford, 18 Windmill La, London, E15 1PG Telephone: 020 3616 0307 or Simple Movers, 2 Windmill Lane, London, E15 1PG on 020 36080303.

Q.

Might it be a money saving idea to enact the conveyancing myself on our own.

A.

Hypothetically there are no arguments why a seller cant undertake the majority of the your own conveyancing without assistance. However, a conveyancer juggles a significant number of assignments e.g. chasing replies to requisitions or handling retentions which are more safely handled with appropriate a skilled professional.

Q.

Why does the purchase conveyancing process need such a long time?

A.

Conveyancing in Stratford could suffer setbacks. Homeward Legal work hard to diminish their consequences whenever possible. Delays can include the length of time it takes for the managing agent or landlord to respond to queries.

Q.

The estate agent has offered a firm of solicitors. Should we use this firm?

A.

An agent can influence a conveyancer they refer a large volume of work to, and can therefore exert pressure on your behalf, however, such referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as some agents choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.
