Q.

We are trying to find discount conveyancing in Welwyn Garden City. What do we need to consider?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this point catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms advertise cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges are often hiding in small print. Any disbursements should also be included on your quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

What causes conveyancing legal work to need such a long time?

A.

The conveyancing process could experience delays, we, however, work hard to curtail their impact by proactively handling all enquiries.

Q.

What does 'fixtures and fittings' mean?

A.

Chiefly, fixtures are 'fixed' to walls, floors or ceilings and fixtures are easier to detach or remove. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

What steps can we take to avoid paying for stamp duty to HM Revenue?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) must be paid on houses priced at over one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. Stamp duty avoidance must be treated with caution. Such schemes are expensive and often likely to fail.

Q.

Q.

Will property solicitor in Welwyn Garden City conduct any property searches on the Hertfordshire Regency end-of-terrace townhouse I am intending to purchase?

A.

The common conveyancing procedure will be to get Local Authority (council), Drainage Search and Environmental as well as any unique particular e.g. a Utilities report.

Q.

We are buying in Welwyn Garden City on a recently-developed ex-industrial use land. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste like arsenic (As)?
