Q.

Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a 672,000 residence? I need low cost conveyancing.

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many firms promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional costs will be included in the solicitor's terms which buyers may have not read carefully Any costs listed in terms and conditions should be fair and reasonable. They only apply to matters if the lawyer is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Please recommend how to avoid paying stamp duty to HM Revenue?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax usually must be paid on purchases priced at over one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. Homeward Legal firmly advise against any form of stamp duty scheme, as such schemes are often uneconomical and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later meaning that the full stamp duty amount will then be due.

Tadworth conveyancing solicitors get necessary searches when acting for a property buyer, which specific searches?

A.

When taking out a mortgage a mortgage lender mandates at least a specified set of searches, including the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environment Search, and perhaps area-specific searches e.g. a Official Search of Whole or Part without Priority (OS3).

Q.

Does the report on the property's title prepared by the Tadworth conveyancer report back on the rates of council tax on a Band A maisonette before exchanging contracts?

A.
