Q.

A.

The nearest hospital for Taplow is Huntercombe Maidenhead.

Q.

How do we get a cheap solicitor quote to buy a home?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this point catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many law firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra charges are often hiding in the small print, left unregarded by busy homeowners Any charges ought to be fair and clearly defined. They only be applied if the solicitor is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements ought to be defined on the quote. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Virgin Money is our mortgage lender, what do I need to consider?

A.

When organising a mortgage, the lender will require legal work to be carried out. Some lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them. This can mean greater conveyancing costs for buyers. We are able to act for many CML-approved lenders, ensuring that an additional preferred solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.

Q.

If we are buying in the parish of Wyrardisbury, are we advised to get a chancel search?

A.

Whichever Taplow parish you are buying in, a property lawyer might recommend a chancel search. In older areas of Taplow, chancel repair can be

imposed on owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Will the Taplow property's fixtures and fittings include things such as free-standing kitchen appliances?

A.

Usually, fixtures are fixed elements, such as fitted gas or electric fires to walls and other surfaces and fixtures are free-standing items, such as bookcases. Early agreement of a list of fixtures and fittings will avoid later disputes and will save considerable frustration later.

Q.

Which body has overall responsibility for checking the condition of conservation areas in Taplow?

A.

Local conservation areas are set up by South Bucks who are responsible for the state of the area including things like poorly maintained roads, addition of unsympathetic windows and public spaces. Following a campaign, English Heritage have created details of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in Taplow and across England as well as the risk of a decline in standards.

Q.

Would you advise that I get searches for chancel liability? I am purchasing a house in Taplow.

A.

Property owners near to a medieval church are expected to contribute towards the cost of repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Some names or words such as 'vicarage' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Taplow church properties include St Nicolas.

Q.

Can you suggest how to defer paying HMRC stamp duty?

A.

Homeward Legal strongly advise against any stamp duty mitigation 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 be payable, with potential fines. There have been a range of government-sponsored schemes, on the other hand, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'. A conveyancing solicitor should confirm whether you are eligible.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing process on the purchase of a £794,000 property, how could we speed up our transaction?

A.

Key to a fast conveyancing transaction is to employing a proactive, diligent conveyancer. Additionally, there are numerous tasks you could do, including, requesting status updates from the conveyancer regularly, completing all forms as soon as possible and arranging any finances require to complete the purchase.
