Q.

How do I get a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

This matter catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors purport to offer cheap conveyancing. Often additional costs are often hiding in the terms, left unread by preoccupied home owners Any charges listed in terms of engagement needs to be fair. They only apply to matters if the solicitor must complete unanticipated additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

I am purchasing a converted chapel in Whetstone. Is a chancel search needed?

A.

The conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on owners of affected property, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not automatically be the case for future owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

I am completing next January, how is stamp duty tax worked out?

The Stamp Duty due depends on the value of the house or flat. On a £800000 Thamesmead home, stamp duty will be £32000.*

*Correct January 2013

Q.

Does your solicitors company get involved in auction conveyancing in Thamesmead?

A.

Our firm is very competent with residential property auction protocols. Quite often specialist buildings like building plots, are bought at auction which tend to require greater due diligence by the property lawyer We therefore advocate purchasers to instruct a suitable conveyancing lawyer before the actual auction so there is time for a thorough investigation of the auction pack. Thereafter, following the auction day itself a lawyer has to be fully prepared to complete the purchase in the 28 day time frame as usually required by the terms of sale.

Q.

Should I make use of a lawyer used by my estate agent?

A.

The agent will usually suggest a solicitors firm. However, if they are paid a referral fee, some agents choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

We have a found a freehold residence to buy. How do we arrange a fast exchange and completion?

A.

Finding a proactive property lawyer is crucial to a fast conveyancing transaction. When identifying an appropriate a property lawyer, consider these points: Do they offer 'instant' online quotes? What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase. Will they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?

Q.

How is Thamesmead contaminated land checked when buying a house?

A.

Many of contaminants may potentially impair property in Thamesmead, and an environmental search should reveal if a plot of land could be affected by contaminants such as environmental radon sources and pollution incidents.
