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.

What type of exploration in connection with the risk and history of a flood to properties in Havering will a Upminster conveyancing solicitor report back on for a Sixties home we are intending to buy?

A.

A property conveyancing lawyer will conduct official conveyancing searches that incorporate Upminster flood risk data. As an additional measure means that your conveyancer in Upminster may propose a more detailed search. A recent check (09-Jul-12) there were no warnings around the at the River Ingrebourne at Hornchurch including Upminster and Rainham

Q.

Do you recommend taking precautions to get out of paying out for stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

Stamp duty is usually payable for property purchases over £125,000. Homeward Legal firmly advise against any stamp duty scheme, because these schemes are highly expensive and very risky.

Q.

To complete on our purchase ASAP, how do we arrange a fast conveyancing process in Upminster?

The key to buying faster is to employing a proactive property lawyer. You should consider:

  • Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
  • Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?

Q.

National Counties Building Society is going to be our mortgage lender - what will we need to check?

A.

A small number of lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, potentially creating increased legal costs for buyers. We can act for the majority of lenders in the UK to ensure that you will not need to pay the lender's costs.

Q.

What will the council tax cost on a buy to let Band F flat in Upminster?

A.

Your pertinent band will conventionally be reported within the conveyancer's title report along with the local authority. The latest council tax charges for homes in Upminster are detailed online at the Havering council site. Currently on 26 December 2012 band rates are:

  • Band A - £1,001.00

  • Band H - £3,004.00

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.

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.
