Q.

I am looking for a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Victoria. What do we need to consider?

A.

This matter catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional charges can inflate the final invoice.

Q.

I am purchasing a £969000, how is Stamp Duty Land Tax calculated?

A.

Stamp Duty will depend on the property's value. For a house worth £969000, SDLT will be £38760.

Q.

Property environmental searches are estimated from archived records but when one considers climate change for instance the extensive flooding in the UK in April 2012 are they still appropriate to advise on sufficient information about the Victoria flood risk area?

A.

Your Victoria property solicitor will suggest that you include flood risk searches if the standard search determines a any kind of risk of flooding in Victoria.

For extra history why not contact a neighbour of the property.

Q.

I have a need for very fast Victoria solicitors - is that you?

A.

Annoyingly, too many property solicitors may be slow, causing even more stress to buying or selling a home.

We always work with home moving lawyers who will communicate up the home buyer and seller chain . In addition our panel of conveyancing property lawyers are actually chosen because they all use the best CMS systems leading to a completion on the sale quickly.

Q.

What are the pitfalls if purchasing a Victoria building in a Westminster planning authority conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of conveyancing involves making enquiries of the local authority to establish conservation area status and formal approval for any changes. Local Authority searches vary in cost but are charged as a disbursement. In the event that no appropriate consents be produced, your Victoria conveyancing solicitor will advise you of the options such as seeking an indemnity policy or seeking retrospective permission from Westminster council.

Q.

Are buyers often gazumped in Victoria?

A.

This takes place when a property seller acknowledges an offer and then refuses it, opting for a second purchaser's offer. There is almost always a chance of being gazumped. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct your property solicitor as soon as you can.

Q.

Victoria property solicitors get formal property conveyancing searches when they are acting for a home purchase client, which particular searches?

A.

If applying for a mortgage the building society of bank will expect at least the following for properties in Victoria: Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environment Search and occasionally area-specific searches, like a Subsidence report.

Q.

Is there anything I can do to get out of paying stamp duty in Victoria?

A.

SDLT is generally due on residential property sold for over £125,000. Homeward Legal do not recommend any form of stamp duty mitigation. Such schemes are often uneconomical and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed and the total stamp duty amount may be due.
