Q.

How do I get a cheap solicitor quote to sell property?

A.

The confusion over this issue catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional charges will be included in small print. Fees needs to be fair. Any disbursements should also be included on the quote

Q.

Do we need to get a chancel search? We are buying in Wallasey.

A.

Property owners in a neighbourhood near specific local church buildings may be required to pay for repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Terms used in a property's name, like 'abbey', may indicate chancel liability. A conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise further. Churches in the local area where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Hilary, St Nicholas and St Thomas the Apostle, Liscard.

Q.

Wallasey conveyancing solicitors conduct a variety of searches when they are instructed to act for a home buyer, but which specific ones?

A.

If you are getting a mortgage, your lender insist that particular searches, including the following Local Authority

(personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environmental as well as any special local Wallasey searches, which might include Planning report.

Q.

How long will conveyancing legal work take, on average?

A.

The time needed to transfer a house is not wholly predictable, influenced by a range of issues which may affect the property. These may include if there is a mortgage. Our conveyancers strive to ensure your sale or purchase receives fast and efficient service.

Q.

Do I need to get a survey for our Wallasey property purchase?

A.

Homeward Legal heavily advise that you order a property survey when buying in Wallasey. Many defects will impact a property, for example failed double glazing. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

Would you advise taking steps to bypass paying for stamp duty tax?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is generally due for homes over 125,000 pounds. Homeward Legal strongly advise against any stamp duty mitigation scheme, as such schemes are highly expensive and very risky.

Q.

I am purchasing a £736000 Wallasey property, what should be assessed for stamp duty?

A.

The rate of stamp duty that will be due will rely on the house or flat's price. For a property sold for £736000, the rate will be £29440.

Q.

I am purchasing a maisonette in the middle of a conservation area in Wallasey, how does one find more details on the state of repair?

A.

English Heritage have put together information of the condition of conservation areas along with the exposure to a worsening of the condition of the area. Conservation areas in Wallasey are set up by the local Wirral planning authority, who oversee things like upkeep of paths to the thwarting of new developments.
