Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing estimate in Totteridge?

A.

Both high-street and online firms purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing. However extra fees are often hiding in the terms. A quote should list any disbursements.

Q.

Would you suggest looking into how to circumvent paying stamp duty to HM Revenue?

A.

Homeward Legal firmly advise against any stamp duty mitigation scheme, because these schemes are highly expensive and can be very unlikely to succeed.

Q.

Is there a danger that we will be gazumped?

A.

This describes when an offer is accepted, and then rejected, by the property owner, in preference to a higher offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a danger of gazumping. You should instruct your conveyancing solicitor as soon as you can to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.

Q.

What do I need to be aware of if we invest in a maisonette within the boundary of a Barnet local authority conservation area ?

A.

Part of the legal process includes the application for searches of Barnet planning authority to identify conservation area status and the appropriate formal approval for any developments. .

Q.

Is a Local Authority search a disbursement or fee?

A.

Some solicitors pass off additional costs as disbursements. It may not be obvious whether a cost is a disbursement or not, and if it should be included. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on at cost.

Q.

We are buying a restored chapel in the parish of Upper Holloway St John. Is a chancel search necessary?

A.

Your solicitor might recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair can be imposed on new owners of a house where church councils have previously chosen not to do so, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

I have to instruct fast home moving solicitors in Totteridge, is that your firm?

A.

Generally house selling solicitors can be far too slow which can add large amounts of pressure to the property selling process.

Homeward Legal always work with solicitors which will always communicate throughout the buyer and seller chain . In addition , Homeward Legals conveyancing property lawyers are picked because they always employ new CMS and information technology systems to complete on your move to your preferred move date.
