Q.

How do I get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Various solicitors purport to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional charges are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Any disbursements must also be stated on the quote

Q.

What do we need to calculate SDLT, and what should we budget for a £525000 home?

A.

The Stamp Duty that is payable is based on the purchase price. For a property purchased for £525000, SDLT will be £21000.

Q.

How do I confirm that a property is in a conservation area?

A.

Areas deemed to be of historic or architectural significance, such as fishing villages, will be designated as conservation areas. A lawyer will address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area and offer more information.

Q.

Which mortgage lenders in Watchet do you work with?

A.

Homeward Legal can work in conjunction with most lenders who are Council of Mortgage Lenders-approved. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Watchet, including Beadells, Kildare, Roadwater, Watchet, TA23 0RG.

Q.

What will a Watchet conveyancing lawyer advise if the property we hope to purchase is in a conservation are in West Somerset council and turns out to have unapproved PVC windows added?

A.

West Somerset local authority enquiries conducted by a solicitor during the legal process should ascertain if the Watchet property a designated conservation area and evidence of planning consent for modifications will be asked for. In the event that no necessary permissions be available, your solicitor will inform you of the best alternative such as requesting an indemnity policy or seeking retrospective permission from West Somerset planning authority.

Q.

In regards to the major flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England I am concerned that environmental searches might not be sufficient?

A.

A good lawyer in Watchet will get flood risk searches if the initial conveyancing searches identifies any kind of risk.

You can get in touch with a neighbour to gain additional local history or nearby Somerset flood damage expert for example: Nicholas K, Willow Gr, Washford, Watchet, TA23 0PT Tel: 01984 640132.

Q.

We are going to buy a property, and have a conveyancing quote from you. Will there be any additional costs?

A.

No. We do not hide any hidden costs regardless of circumstances. Some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote, meaning that your final bill could be much higher.

Q.

Is there anything I can do to circumvent paying for SDLT?

A.

We do not recommend any form of stamp duty mitigation. These schemes are often uneconomical and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed .
