Q.

How do we get a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

Several firms offer cheap conveyancing. However extra fees are frequently hidden in small print. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We are buying a £720000, how is stamp duty tax assessed?

A.

The Stamp Duty due will depend on the valuation. It will be £28800 on a £720000 property (source: www.hmrc.gov.uk, 01/02/2013).

Q.

When in the conveyancing process do I need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor to act on our purchase?

A.

In the vast majority of cases, as soon as possible, as the legal work can start very early in the process. Early instruction of a solicitor to act on your Walsingham sale or purchase can limit the risk of the transaction falling through.

Q.

Are buyers frequently gazumped in Walsingham?

A.

Gazumping occurs when one purchaser's offer is, following agreement, later rejected by the property seller, in favour of a better offer. Though being gazumped is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a danger. Instructing a conveyancing solicitor as early as possible is a key first step to reducing this risk.

Q.

What causes conveyancing for a Walsingham property purchase to be so delayed?

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase a property will occasionally take more time even in the best of circumstances. Sometimes,

these reasons are beyond the solicitors' influence. Homeward Legal endeavour to reduce the consequences of these delays where it is possible to do so by driving the sale or purchase forward.

Q.

Will my conveyancing solicitor in Walsingham inform me about the cost of council tax on a Band B property before exchanging contracts?

A.

The conveyancer will contact the council to find out the appropriate council tax charges which should then be included in the report on title. Correct rates for homes in Walsingham are set out online at the North Norfolk council site. At the time of writing, 25 July 2012, the rates are:

Q.

Do you have low cost solicitors that have a lot of experience at the conveyancing for auction properties in Walsingham?

A.

Our firm do frequently act for buyers and sellers at auction. We typically encourage buyers to choose an affordable lawyer prior to the actual auction to give enough time for a thorough investigation of the sellers legal pack.

Subsequently, immediately after the property auction a prepared lawyer will be able to concentrate on get through all of the legal work in less than 28 days after exchange of contracts as required by the terms and conditions of sale.

Q.

We have a property to purchase. How do we guarantee a fast conveyancing transaction?

A.

Key to faster conveyancing is to use a proactive property lawyer. Consider the following when selecting:

  • Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote?
  • Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication?
  • How soon will they order searches?
