Q.

I need a discount conveyancing estimate. Can you assist?

A.

Lack of clarity over this topic catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra fees may be added into small print. Any additional costs listed in the small print needs to be clearly defined. Any disbursements should also be clearly stated on your conveyancing quote. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

I have found a number of books going into great depth on doing the legal work yourself for example Bradshaw's Guide to Diy House Buying Selling and Conveyancing. Do I therefore have to use Turnham Green property lawyer ?

A.

Hypothetically speaking there are no arguments why a buyer shouldn't embark on the legal work without assistance. However, a lawyer is in charge of a significant number of jobs ranging from interpreting protocol forms and dealing with requisition on os1 many of which require a qualified professional.

Q.

How is Stamp Duty Land Tax rates calculated in Turnham Green, and how much should it be on a £369000 residential property?

A.

The Stamp Duty owed will rely on several factors, including the value of the house or flat, and whether it is in a 'disadvantaged area'. On a £369000 house, stamp duty will be £11070.*

Q.

I am purchasing with Market Harborough Building Society, what do I need to know?

A.

Buyers should know that some lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly increased conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal, fortunately, can act on behalf of most lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay an additional fee for your lender's solicitor.

Q.

How much will searches be?

A.

The cost of searches will vary, subject to the searches your lender requires. Searches are disbursements paid to a third party, and are charged 'at cost'.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search? I am purchasing near a 1600s 'parson's close' in Turnham Green.

A.

As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Turnham Green which was once owned by a 'lay rectors' can be liable for repairs to nearby church property. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Turnham Green properties is likely to exist. Ecclesiastical properties in the area where chancel liability may apply include Christ Church.

Q.

When should you instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Turnham Green?

A.

Whether you are buying or selling in Turnham Green, the earlier in the process you can instruct a conveyancing firm, the better, as conveyancing involves several tasks that may be performed very early in the process. Early instruction of a conveyancing solicitor to act on your Turnham Green sale or purchase can limit the risk of your sale or purchase falling though.

Q.

Is obtaining landlord's consent to assignment of lease passed on at cost?

A.

It is not always obvious whether a charge is a fee or disbursement. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in your conveyancing quote.
