Q.

How do I get a discount conveyancing estimate?

A.

This issue affects many buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process, and many firms claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Any disbursements must also be stated on your quote Any fees which are listed in your solicitor's terms should be fair and clearly defined and come into force only if the lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Can you recommend how to get out of paying for stamp duty land tax?

A.

Homeward Legal do not recommend any form of stamp duty reduction, as such schemes are costly and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later. There have been several legal initiatives, such as disadvantaged area relief. Your solicitor will advise as to your eligibility.

Q.

Our purchase is completing in January, what should be calculated for stamp duty?

A.

The Stamp Duty you will owe will depend on the purchase price. For a residential property purchased for £883000, the SDLT rate is £35320.*

*This information accurate as of August 2012

Q.

Is your solicitor team set up to complete within 28 days of exchange on residential property auction conveyancing in Wargrave?

A.

Our CQS solicitors often take instructions from bidders at auction. Lawyers usually recommend buyers at auction to choose an auction experienced lawyer well in advance of the auction for an investigation of the auction legal pack,Subsequently, following the auction day arrives, your conveyancing lawyer is focused on conclude the auction conveyancing process in less than the 4 week time frame, a requirement of standard auction conditions.

Q.

Do I need to choose a property lawyer suggested by our estate agent?

A.

Many agents in Hayes have referral deals with solicitors whereby they refer conveyancing work to them. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, some agents may 'recommend' the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

If I am buying near Wargrave, in the parish of Pangbourne, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Whichever Wargrave parish in which you are purchasing, a conveyancing lawyer may suggest a chancel search. Through some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to impose chancel repairs on current owners of land subject to chancel liability, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will not automatically be the case for future owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

My wife and I are buying in Wargrave, and need to know if there are any conservation areas.

A.

Conservation areas detail local areas of historic or architectural significance. Living in a conservation area can mean preservation of an area's historic charm, but the restrictions can make repairs more costly or time-consuming. A conveyancing lawyer will address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area.

Q.

What amount of time can the legal work to purchase a property usually need? I am buying in Wargrave.

A.

In general, the time taken to transfer a property does vary, based on numerous factors including if the lender requires specific searches. 8 to 12 weeks is the average for many firms, whereas our solicitors will, wherever feasible, work towards a six-week timescale.
