Q.

We are trying to find a lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing in Virginia Water, we are on a tight budget.

A.

Many firms purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional fees are frequently hidden in small print. Chargeswhich are listed in terms of engagement should be clearly defined. They only be applied if your lawyer is required to complete extra work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements should also be included on any quote for conveyancing in Virginia WaterThe Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like cupboards?

A.

Mainly, there is not a legal definition of fixtures and fittings. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This can make the completion of a fixtures and fitting form necessary.

Q.

Is your panel of solicitors set up to complete fast the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Virginia Water?

Yes - Our CQS solicitors often handle the legal work for buyers and sellers at auction. We usually tell buyers to decide on a fast conveyancing company in advance of the auction day so there is time for a detailed review of the legal papers.

Post actual auction, a lawyer should be fully prepared to get through the purchase legal work inside 28 days as required by the conditions of sale.

Q.

How do you determine stamp duty, and what amount should we budget for a £464000 house?

A.

Stamp Duty will depend on the house or flat's value. It will be £13920 on a £464000 house or flat.*

*This information accurate as of 01/03/2013

Q.

Could the conveyancing costs take into account any supplementary hidden charges?

A.

Homeward Legal never hide any extra, hidden costs. Some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.

Q.

In regards to the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall we are wondering if property environmental searches may not be exacting enough?

A.

Property conveyancing searches carried out by a conveyancer in Virginia Water should include the far more informative search (Landmark) if required.

If you remain still nervous try to contact a neighbour of the property or nearby Surrey flood damage builder, like Decorbuild, Netherby/6 Monks Rd, Virginia Water, GU25 4RR Tel: 01344 844619.

Q.

Can you confirm how to get out of paying stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

Stamp duty is usually payable for homes over £125,000. We do not recommend conveyancing clients undertake any stamp duty reduction, as such schemes are expensive and very risky. There have been several official schemes, such as for first-time buyers. Your solicitor will advise as to your eligibility.

Q.

We are buying on a Virginia Water ex-industrial use land. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

Effort is made across Virginia Water and the region to identify and resolve topsoil contamination. Also considering issues such as water contaminants such as oil and industrial storage, contaminants affecting Virginia Water property will be factored into an environmental search.
