Q.

How do I find a cheap solicitor to purchase a home?

A.

Many solicitors advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional costs are often hiding in small print. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

Do you advise that we get a chancel search if you are purchasing in Victoria Park next to an ecclesiastical parish?

A.

Chancel liability can require owners in Victoria Park to fund maintenance of a church in the area. Following the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Victoria Park church lands include St Chrysostom.

Q.

When is it wise to instruct a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

In the vast majority of cases, the earlier in the process you can instruct a conveyancing solicitor, the better. The legal work can then begin very early in the process. Prompt instruction of a firm for a sale can mean that prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers, whereas if you are buying you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer.

Q.

How is stamp duty calculated in Victoria Park, how much will it be on a £289000 property?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax depends on the purchase price of the property. It will be £8670 on a £289000 house or flat.*

Q.

For what reason does Victoria Park property legal work take so long? Is it not simply form-filling?

A.

The conveyancing process will sometimes take more time than budgeted. We work hard to diminish the effect of these delays whenever possible. Delays include waiting for responses from third parties.

Q.

How many weeks does conveyancing to transfer a home need in Victoria Park?

A.

The number of weeks required to transact property is not wholly predictable. This is dependent on a range of aspects, for example, matters where a property has a mortgage. The national average is 8 to 12 weeks, whereas our solicitors drive the process forwards, completing within eight weeks.

Q.

What will contaminate land in Victoria Park, and should they be a concern?

A.

A broad range of contaminants caused by natural causes and human activities may lessen the value of land in Victoria Park, such as hazardous and regulated installations. An environmental search can provide much more clarity.

Q.

Do your house conveyancing solicitors deal with the conveyancing for residential property auction properties in Victoria Park?

A.

Yes - Our residential property lawyers regularly get instructed by auction buyers and sellers. We usually inform buyers to select a SRA regulated lawyer in advance of the property auction to allow time for a full investigation of the legal papers for the lot.

Thereafter, following the actual auction a lawyer is fully prepared to rapidly carry out the legal process inside the 28 day time frame as typically required by the terms and conditions of sale.
