Q.

How do we get the best conveyancing rates for a £661k house?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many sellers and buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many solicitors offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional costs can increase the solicitor's invoice. Any additional charges listed in your solicitor's terms should be reasonable.

Q.

Why can conveyancing for a sale take weeks to complete?

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase a property may potentially be delayed for many reasons. The delays may be out of the solicitors' control, Homeward Legal, however, see how frustrating such delays may be and seek to reduce their impact by using fast search providers. Common delays may include the time taken to return management information.

Q.

Environmental searches are compiled from archived data and when you consider recent weather changes such as the fact that last year was second wettest year since on record, are they the ideal way to advise me sufficient information about the Strood area flood risk?

A Strood property lawyer will advise you to apply for specialist flood risk searches if the first conveyancing searches flag up a significant risk Strood flood risk area

Sometimes property buyers to speak to a local resident for that extra assurance.

Q.

Is there anything we can do to bypass paying for stamp duty land tax?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) commonly must be paid for property purchases sold for over £125,000. We firmly advise against any stamp duty scheme, because these schemes are often uneconomical and often likely to fail.

Q.

Is contaminated land in Strood a concern?

A.

A range of contaminants caused by human activities can quickly spoil land in Strood, and an environmental search will reveal the extent to which a specific plot of land can be impacted by local contaminants like existing and proposed overhead electricity cables. Contamination can be caused by local waste sites, including Commissioners Road, Strood, ME2 4HA.

Q.

Is homewardlegal.co.uk set up to move quickly on the conveyancing of auction properties in Strood?

A.

The legal team work closely with auctioneers and often act for bidders at auction. Homeward Legal always advocate purchasers to formally appoint an affordable conveyancing firm in advance of the actual auction to allow for a full investigation of the sellers pack.

Subsequently, immediately after the auction, a property conveyancing lawyer needs to be prepared for complete the purchase inside the 28 day time frame as conventionally required by the conditions of sale.

Q.

I am going to buy with Co-operative Bank, is there anything I need to consider?

A.

Some lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean greater conveyancing costs for purchasers. We are able to act for many lenders so that you will not be required to pay an additional fee for your lender's solicitor.

Q.
