"The team to rely on during your property transaction."
When buying or selling a property in Tiptree, you will need to instruct a property lawyer to handle legal side of things for your move.
Homeward Legal's panel of conveyancing solicitors have vast experience helping home buyers and sellers in Tiptree and all over Essex and our proactive approach often means we complete the transaction faster than other firms.
Conveyancing solicitors who undertake all the legal work for your sale or purchase for a fixed rate.
If your Essex house move does not complete we do not charge you any property legal fees.
With local Tiptree experience, your property solicitor will lead you through the details of the conveyancing process.
No additional fees whatsoever.
Tiptree's closest airport is Clacton, West Rd Airport (17 miles). London Airport is 17 miles, Clacton Airport is 17 miles, Elmsett Airport is 21 mile and Stansted Airport is 22 miles away. The nearest train station to Tiptree is Kelvedon.
St Peters Maldon is a nearby hospital to Tiptree.Q.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Stamp Duty Land Tax is based on the property's price. Stamp duty will be £36520 on a £913000 home.*

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.
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.
