Q.

I am looking for a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Walderslade. Can you assist?

A.

Various solicitors offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional costs will be included in the small print. The quote should also clearly state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid. Any fees included in terms of engagement ought to be fair and reasonable. They only apply to matters if your lawyer must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Will the report on the property's title prepared by the Walderslade conveyancing solicitor provide details about the rates of the council tax for a cottage prior to exchange of contracts?

A.

The property solicitor will speak to the local council to discover the correct council tax charges which should then be included in the conveyancing report on title. The latest council tax charges for homes in Walderslade are detailed at the local authority website.

Q.

Is contaminated land a problem in Walderslade?

A.

Land would be contaminated by several environmental factors. Contaminants such as local historic industrial processes and sand or gravel pits will be detailed in an appropriate search.

Q.

Can you advise how to defer paying SDLT?

A.

Homeward Legal firmly advise against any form of stamp duty mitigation scheme, as such schemes are expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later meaning that the full stamp duty amount will be payable, with potential fines.

Q.

DIY conveyancing without the support of a property lawyer in Walderslade looks to be possible as a buyer and seller of a house , however would it really be wise ?

A.

Theoretically speaking there is no argument at all why a seller cannot decide to conduct legal and technical work without assistance. That said, a Walderslade property solicitor typically handles a long list of assignments including chasing any outstanding docs or checking that the contract package is in order some of which require experience.

Q.

For fast conveyancing on the purchase of a £916,000 residence, what do we need to ensure?

A.

It is well established that finding a communicative lawyer is crucial to a fast conveyancing transaction. There are, in addition, several tasks you as the purchaser can also do to accelerate the process, such as, requesting status updates from the lawyer regularly, clarifying your mortgage lender's requirements and answering any queries raised by your lawyer as soon as possible.

Q.

Is arsenic top-soil contamination likely in Walderslade?

A.

Walderslade's local area has a history of contamination from agriculture or industry, like much of the UK. Data on many contaminants, such as organohalides, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Will I need a building surveyor to inspect the house purchase?

A.

It is highly recommended that most Walderslade buyers arrange a RICS surveyor. Buyers should be aware that there are many concerns that will impact a property, that will not be addressed during the conveyancing process, including subsidence.
