Q.

How do we identify a genuinely cheap fee? I am trying to find a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Upper Tooting.

A.

Numerous conveyancers purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing. Often extra charges are often hiding in the small print. Any additional charges which are listed in the terms should be fair and reasonable. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Can you advise how I avoid paying out for HMRC stamp duty?

A.

We do not advise clients get involved with any stamp duty mitigation scheme, as such schemes are costly and can be very unlikely to succeed. There have been a number of government initiatives, however, such as disadvantaged area relief.

Q.

Bookshops have a growing number handbooks all about how to do DIY conveyancing e.g. Which? Guide to Doing Your Own Conveyancing . In which case, do I need a property solicitor in Upper Tooting ?

A.

There is no argument why a home buyer cant take care of he bulk of the legal and technical work without the help of a trained Upper Tooting solicitor.

The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor in Upper Tooting carries out a long list of roles from ranging from chasing replies to requisitions and interpreting planning contraventions most of which are better done by someone with a skilled professional.

Critically DIY lawyers do not have sufficient cover that all legal practices are compelled to obtain.

Q.

How do we determine stamp duty, and what should we budget for a £53000 residential property?

A.

Stamp Duty is calculated based on the home's price. It will be £0 on a £53000 house or flat in Upper Tooting.

Q.

We really need fast Upper Tooting conveyancers - is that you?

A.

Honestly, a percentage of house selling conveyancers are just dilatory adding unnecessary stress to home moving.

Our SRA regulated solicitors approach is different as we have invested in cutting edge productivity systems . We also give property sellers a CQS lawyer prepared to communicate with the whole property chain (line of buyers and sellers) like councils , to bring about a fast exchange.

Q.

What can impact land in Upper Tooting. Will they be properly investigated?

A.

Land in Upper Tooting may have been contaminated by a range of environmental concerns. Issues including shallow mining and other sources of contaminated land will be detailed in an appropriate search.

Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if I plan to purchase in the parish of St Sepulchre?

A.

Whether you are buying a home in Upper Tooting or elsewhere in the county, the solicitor might recommend that a chancel search is taken out. In Upper Tooting's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

Does your firm specialise auction conveyancing in Upper Tooting?

A.

Homeward Legal is very capable working with residential property auction conveyancing. Regularly difficult to value auction lots e. g. landlocked or without legal access are included at property auctions and these require greater investigation. Solicitors therefore recommend purchasers to formally instruct a lawyer before the property auction date for an investigation of the property's legal title. Immediately following the auction day a prepared lawyer will need to be ready for get through the transaction in less than the 4 week time frame as usually required by the conditions of sale.
