Q.

We need to find low cost conveyancing in Upminster. What do I need to check for?

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional costs may inflate your final invoice. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

Bookshops and the web have an increasing number helpful documents about DIY conveyancing. Do we need to instruct a Upminster property solicitor ?

A.

In theory, there is no reason at all why a seller should not carry out the legal process on your own. In reality however, a conveyancing solicitor juggles a long list of actions such as chasing lender for comments on issues raised and notifying all parties of exchange most of which are more safely handled with appropriate a qualified solicitor. Additionally solicitors firms are liable to be required to carry professional indemnity insurance to protect you from any errors.

Q.

How is stamp duty assessed and what will we need to pay on a £652000 house?

A.

Stamp Duty is dependent on the house or flat's value. Stamp duty will be £26080 on a £652000 residential property.*

*Accurate as of March 2013

Q.

Are there many conservation areas in Upminster?

A.

With around 9,000 conservation areas across the country, the areas in or near Upminster will include numerous areas of historical or architectural value recorded as protected. You may wish to contact the local council for more information, but your solicitor will investigate this in detail during the property transaction.

Q.

What amount of time may conveyancing often take? We are selling in Upminster.

A.

The amount of time required to transact property is not wholly predictable. This is dependent on a broad set of issues, for example, matters where a property has a mortgage. For most firms in England and Wales, the average is between 8 to 12 weeks, we however aim for faster conveyancing, driving the transaction to complete within 6 to 8 weeks.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Upminster?

A.

Upminster is located in London Borough of Havering Council, Town Hall, Main Road, Romford, RM1 3BB, contact: 01708 434 343

Q.

Is a home buyers survey a good idea when we are purchasing a house?

A.

Homeward Legal strongly recommend that all purchasers in Upminster book a building survey. Buyers should be aware that there are many concerns that affect a property, which a conveyancing solicitor will not report on, such as chimney defects.

Q.

What do I need to be aware of if we acquire a property inside a Havering local authority conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the due diligence for buyers includes carrying out searches of the Havering authority to determine conservation area status and the existence of consent for any changes. In the event that no local authority consents be produced, your solicitor will advise you of the alternatives which may include obtaining an indemnity insurance policy or obtaining retrospective consent from the planning authority.
