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.

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.

Should I use a property lawyer that works with by the agent?

A.

An agent will endorse one or more conveyancing firms. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, some agents choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

Will the solicitor in Turnham Green apply for any property on the London Sixties mid terrace flat I am buying?

A.

When applying for a mortgage lender requires you to at least the following Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environment Search, as well as any unique particular e.g. a Bankruptcy Search (K16).

Q.

I have to instruct fast Turnham Green conveyancing solicitors - is that Homeward Legal?

A.

Annoyingly, some property solicitors practices can be too slow, which creates huge concern to moving.

Homeward Legals lawyers method is to use modern conveyancing case management systems .

Critically we always give you a conveyancers practiced at exert pressure with all parties in the chain .

Q.

Does your solicitors firm look after the conveyancing for auction properties in Turnham Green?

A.

Yes - Homeward Legal is very capable working with property auction protocols. It is not unusual for unusually constructed lots such as investment properties, are bought at property auctions which require addedprior to exchange. We therefore suggest that bidders choose an affordable conveyancing company in advance of the property auction date so there is time for a full report of the property's legal title. Subsequently, immediately after the day of the auction, the lawyer will be fully prepared to conclude the legal work in less than the 4 week time frame as conventionally required by the terms of sale.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Paddington [St James]?

A.

The solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search be taken out. Chancel repair may be apportioned on the current owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have previously chosen not to do so, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.
