Q.

How do we get the best conveyancing rates in Tiptree for a 519,000 house?

A.

Many online and high street conveyancers promote theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs are often hiding in small print which homeowners may have not read carefully The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

How many weeks will the legal work to sell a home often take, in your opinion? We need to move quickly.

A.

On average, the length of time taken to sell or purchase a house is not wholly predictable, influenced by a range of concerns. Nationally, the average is up to twelve weeks, we however take a proactive approach, driving the sale or purchase to complete sooner.

Q.

Should we get a survey?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors recommend that all purchasers in Tiptree arrange a home surveyor to undertake a survey. Many defects can negatively affect a property. These include ground movement, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

What does a Tiptree property lawyer advise if the house is in a Colchester conservation area and turns out to have unfitting windows fitted?

A.

Colchester local authority searches carried out by a solicitor in the process of the conveyancing will see whether the property is inside a conservation area and any evidence of planning consent for changes to the property will be asked for. If no local authority consents can be provided, your solicitor will recommend the alternatives for example getting covered by an indemnity insurance policy or obtaining retrospective consent from Colchester council.

Q.

For a fast completion to buy a £498,000 residence, what should we do?

A.

Contacting a proactive and experienced lawyer is the key to a fast conveyancing transaction. When finding a lawyer, consider these points: Was there a delay delivering a quote? Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed. Will they order searches immediately?

Q.

The purchase is completing next January. What will be calculated for stamp duty?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is based on the property's price. Stamp duty will be £36520 on a £913000 home.*

Q.

Is it wise to circumvent paying stamp duty tax?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is due for houses over £125,000. Homeward Legal do not recommend any form of stamp duty scheme, as such schemes are expensive and unreliable.

Q.

Are many purchasers in Tiptree gazumped?

A.

Gazumping takes place when an offer is accepted but then rejected by the house seller, in preference to a higher offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a risk of being gazumped. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a property solicitor as soon as you can.
