Q.

We are looking for the cheapest conveyancing quote. What should I check?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this issue catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers purport to offer cheap conveyancing, but additional fees will be included in the terms. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

How many weeks will we plan for the conveyancing process require in Tunstall?

A.

For the majority of clients, the amount of time taken to transfer a property does vary, affected by a range of factors such as if the property being bought or sold is leasehold. With Homeward Legal, every purchase receives communicative and proactive service, resulting in the fastest possible outcome.

Q.

When I am purchasing a Tunstall property on the same road as a 1300s glebe, is it important that I get a chancel search?

A.

Chancel repair liability can require home owners to fund maintenance of nearby church land. Following the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. Your solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Tunstall church properties include All Saints, Christ Church, St John the Baptist and St John the Baptist.

Q.

Is contaminated land a problem in Tunstall?

A.

Land in Tunstall may be contaminated by many environmental factors. Contaminants such as waste disposal sites will be investigated during the conveyancing process.

Q.

What makes sale conveyancing to take weeks to complete?

A.

The conveyancing process will sometimes be lengthy. Homeward Legal understand that these can cause considerable stress and aim to reduce the consequences of these delays if it can be achieved.

Q.

Can we get out of paying stamp duty to HM Revenue?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is generally payable on property over 125,000 pounds. We do not recommend any form of stamp duty mitigation scheme. Such schemes are highly expensive and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself.

Q.

We are using a lender in Staffordshire, and need to know which Tunstall lenders your lawyers work with. Whose panels are you on?

A.

We have worked alongside most lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Tunstall, such as IMS, 2 St. Helens St, Ipswich, IP4 1HJ, Ipswich Mortgage Centre, 7 Great Colman St, Ipswich, IP4 2AA, and Aston Mortage Solutions, Southgate House/Plough Rd, Great Bentley, Colchester, CO7 8LG.

Q.

The internet is full of a multitude of manuals all about doing your own legal work such as How to Buy Your First Home (And How to Sell it Too) . That being the case, do I need a solicitor in Tunstall ?

A.

Conceivably there are no reasons why a buyer should not carry out the majority of the legal and technical work yourself. That said, a lawyer juggles a huge number of assignments ranging from chasing outstanding papers or maintaining constant communication with agents some of which need a qualified solicitor. Despite that firms and their solicitors are legally obligated to carry professional indemnity insurance that protects you from any professional negligence.
