Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many property lawyers advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'.

Stamp Duty Land Tax usually must be paid on property priced at over £125,000. Homeward Legal strongly advise against any form of stamp duty mitigation, as such schemes are costly and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later meaning that the full stamp duty amount, interest and additional fines will be imposed. There have been a small number of government initiatives, however, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'. Your solicitor will advise as to your eligibility.Q.

The cost of conveyancing searches will vary significantly, depending on the specific searches which have been ordered. Searches are disbursements paid to a third party, and will not be included in the quoted conveyancing fees.Q.
Gazumping takes place when a low offer is rejected, following initial acceptance, by the property seller, in preference to a second buyer's offer. Although being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a chance. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing your conveyancing solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer.
