Q.

What will the overall charge be on the sale of a 462k house? We need to find a low cost conveyancing quote in Wallington.

A.

Several law firms advertise so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra charges are often hiding in small print.

Q.

Why could conveyancing have so many delays?

A.

The conveyancing process will sometimes be lengthy for a variety of reasons. In some cases, the reasons are beyond the solicitor's power, Homeward Legal, however, endeavour to minimise the effect of these delays by chasing for prompt responses.

Q.

Do you need a chancel search? I am purchasing a home in Wallington.

A.

The result of Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must contribute towards the cost of church repairs. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including local maps. Wallington churches where chancel liability may apply include Roundshaw, St Paul, Elm Grove Centre, Holy Trinity and Springfield Church @ Roundshaw.

Q.

Is it prudent to take care of DIY conveyancing ourselves.

A.

It can possible for you to conduct the legal work on your own. The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor typically handles a long list of exercises such as chasing replies to enquiries and representing the lender most of which need training. Moreover lawyers are required by their regulator to be covered by the correct insurance to shield you from any losses you encounter.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process do I need to get a solicitor?

A.

In the majority of situations, as soon as possible. The legal work can then commence straight away. Promptly instructing a solicitor for your Wallington transaction can reduce the likelihood of your transaction stalling.

Q.

In Wallington, is soil remediation of a contaminated plot an option?

A.

A degree of remediation can often be possible. A local specialist for example London Lawn Turf Co, Elm Road, Wallington, SM6 7HQ may be able to provide further information.

Q.

Do you state taking action to defer paying for stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

We do not recommend any form of stamp duty mitigation, as such schemes are often uneconomical and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed meaning that the full stamp duty amount, interest and additional fines will be imposed.

Q.

What is the council tax on a Sixties mid-terrace Band G property in Wallington?

A.

You should be given detail on the property's band as part of the conveyancer's title report. Council tax charges for residents of Wallington are tabled at the Sutton council website. At the time of writing on 29 June 2012 rates are as follows:
