Q.

What will the overall charge be on the sale of a 356,000 house? We are looking for discount conveyancing in Surbiton.

A.

Various solicitors claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional charges are often hiding in the terms. Any additional fees which are listed in the terms should be reasonable and only come into force where the lawyer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

What amount of time will be allowed for the conveyancing process often need, on average?

A.

The number of weeks taken to transact a property can vary, with reference to a handful of issues affecting the property. These could include whether the property being bought or sold is leasehold. Eight to twelve weeks is the industry-wide average, but we will, wherever feasible, work towards a six-week timescale.

Q.

My mortgage lender will be Nationwide - what do I need to know?

A.

Buyers in Surbiton should be aware that some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly

increased conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal, fortunately, will act for the majority of lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

How is stamp duty calculated in Surbiton, and how much should it be on a £900000 property?

A.

Stamp Duty will rely on the valuation. For a property estimated at £900000, SDLT is £36000.*

Q.

We are buying on a new-build ex-industrial site. It seems that caesium (Cs) top-soil contamination may be an issue.

A.

Even where some contamination has occurred in Surbiton, risk levels are usually low. Also considering issues such as trichloroethylene and water contaminants such as petrol, contaminants affecting Surbiton property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

What are the issues if we buy a building in a Kingston upon Thames council designated conservation area ?

A.

Part of the conveyancing process includes the ordering of searches of the Kingston upon Thames authority to verify conservation area status and consent for any developments. .

Q.

In about four weeks we are anticipating to move from our period home just outside Surbiton into our next house in Malden at what point to select a home removal firm?

A.

The most sensible course of action is to wait before booking a removal van until such time as all parties have agreed a date that takes place following shortly after when contracts are signed. Local removals companies include Removals Co Tolworth, Maple Road, Surbiton, KT6 4AL on 020 3475 5081 or Van & Man Removals, St. Philips Rd, Surbiton, KT6 4DX Phone: 07771 750160.

Q.

As a result of the major flooding in the UK in April 2012 we are anxious that flood risk searches aren't sufficient?

A.

A qualified solicitor in Surbiton will carry out environmental searches (Landmark database search) if the first searches flag up a significant risk Surbiton flooding risk.
