Q.

We are planning to sell our co-owned property at a Leicestershire property auction, will Homeward Legal get us fast solicitors in Thorpe Astley ?

A.

On the whole Leicestershire lawyers may be slow creating even more aggravation to the home conveyancing process.

Our chosen solicitors method is different as we use leading edge case management systems . Crucially , we always give you a solicitor qualified to efficiently communicate through the whole of the property chain (line of buyers and sellers) .

Q.

How do I get out of paying stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) commonly must be paid on houses valued at over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty reduction scheme should be treated with extreme caution, as such schemes are highly expensive 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 number of official schemes, however, such as disadvantaged area relief. Your solicitor will advise as to your eligibility.

Clydesdale Bank is going to be our lender - what will we need to be aware of?

A.

A small number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. For house purchasers, this can result in significantly higher conveyancing costs. We will act for all large lenders.

Q.

We are buying on a brownfield site. Can the top-soil still be contaminated?

A.

Q.

What will a Thorpe Astley property solicitor advise if the maisonette we are intending to buy is in a conservation area in Blaby local authority that may have inappropriate windows installed?

A.

Blaby local authority enquiries carried out by a property lawyer in the process of the conveyancing should verify the existence of the appropriate authorisation for any changes to the building.
