Q.

Q.

What do you charge for the legal fees on a £213,000 property? We need to find affordable conveyancing in Teddington.

A.

Various conveyancers claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. However additional charges can inflate your solicitor's invoice. Any costs listed in terms of engagement should be fair and clearly defined. Any disbursements should be included on your conveyancing quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Our purchase will complete on 4th April, how is stamp duty assessed?

A.

The SDLT that will be due will depend on the purchase price. Stamp duty will be £26480 on a £662000 residential property (source: www.hmrc.gov.uk, February 2013).

Q.

Will the title report compiled by the conveyancing solicitor in Teddington give details about the applicable rates of the council tax on a Band F cottage prior to exchange of contracts?

A.

Your lawyer will contact the local council to find out the current council tax band and rates, which will then be set out in the report on title. The correct rates for properties in Teddington are set out in detail on the local authority site.

Q.

We are looking to be finally moving from our terraced property in Teddington to a house in Twickenham . At what stage to instruct a removals firm?

A.

We would tend to encourage you wait arranging removals until such time as exchange of contracts because in all probability an actual moving date will not have been formalised.

Q.

I am intending to buy a converted chapel in the parish of Stratford Bow St Mary. Is a chancel search important?

A.

Your property solicitor could advise that a chancel search is ordered. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have decided to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, there is no way to be certain that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not automatically be the case for future owners.

Q.

Is a home buyers survey necessary when we are buying a property, irrespective of its condition?

A.

It is recommended that all buyers in Teddington arrange a home surveyor to carry out a survey. Buyers should be aware that there are many problems that have a negative impact on a property, such as cracks in walls and cracked roof tiles.

Q.

Will the form for fixtures and fittings list items like electric or gas fires?

A.

Mainly, fixtures are fixed elements, such as shelving to the property, whereas fixtures are free-standing. To avoid misunderstandings, a fixtures and fittings form should be agreed and will save considerable frustration later.

Q.

What additional enquiries in respect to the uncertain risk of floods to properties in Richmond Upon Thames will the Teddington solicitor advise us on?

A.

An essential part of the conveyancing process of buying a property involves a conveyancer carrying out environmental searches that set out specific information with respect to Teddington flood risk area. Additionally your conveyancing solicitor in Teddington might recommend an specialist Teddington flood search. At the time of authoring this article (01-Jan-13) there were no warnings around the River Thames at Teddington at the River Thames riverside from Putney Bridge to Teddington Weir
