Q.

I need the cheapest conveyancing quote. What is included?

A.

Various solicitors claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra costs can inflate your solicitor's invoice. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What specific conveyancing searches does my property solicitor in Turvey apply for when instructed on a Turvey property?

A.

The conventional conveyancing procedure will be to obtain these searches - Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environment Search and perhaps particular searches, like Planning report.

Q.

Would the property's form for fixtures and fittings include things like bathroom suites?

A.

In general, there is not a strict definition of 'fixtures and fittings'. Conveyancing solicitors recommend a formal fixtures and fittings form to avoid later disagreements and will save considerable frustration later.

Q.

I am purchasing a Turvey property with Basinghall Finance, is there anything I need to be aware of?

When buying with a mortgage, legal work must be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. Purchasers need to be aware that, over the last two years, some lenders have reduced the number of firms able to act for them. Homeward Legal can act for all large lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay an additional fee for your lender's solicitor.

Q.

There are a growing number resources giving details on doing your own legal work e.g. House Buying, Selling and Conveyancing by Joesph Bradshaw and Georgia Bedworth . That being the case, do I need a Turvey property lawyer ?

A.

Technically, there is no reason why a home seller shouldn't conduct legal process on your own. That said, a solicitor typically handles a large array of exercises including drafting contracts and verifying identities of transacting parties which need a skilled professional. In addition legal firms must carry applicable indemnity cover to protect you from any errors.

Q.

Is it wise to avoid paying out for stamp duty in Turvey?

A.

SDLT commonly must be paid for home purchases sold for more than 125,000 pounds. We do not recommend clients get involved with any form of stamp duty mitigation, as such schemes are costly and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later.

Q.

Do I need a property survey for our property purchase?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors recommend that all buyers in Turvey book a surveyor to undertake a survey. There are a range of defects that have a negative impact on a property, including cracks in walls. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

What do conveyancing searches mean?

A.

Conveyancing searches are a prescribed set of queries raised by your conveyancer. Buyers must consider that, searches only deal with legal-related matters.
