Q.

Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a 751,000 property? I am looking for a fixed rate conveyancing estimate in West Bridgford.

A.

Many firms offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. Busy, stressed property buyers and sellers ignore these terms at their peril. Extra costs listed in the solicitor's terms should be reasonable and clear. They only come into force where your conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

What causes purchase conveyancing legal work to require so much time and effort?

A.

Conveyancing could be drawn out, we, however, endeavour to reduce the impact of these delays by pushing all parties involved. Delays include problems with arranging a mortgage.

Q.

Would you advise making the effort to defer paying SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty avoidance is not advised, as such schemes are costly and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself.

Q.

When is it wise to instruct a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

If you choose a conveyancing solicitor with 'no move, no fee' protection, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as the legal work can commence immediately.

Early instruction of a solicitor for a purchase enables you will the details of your West Bridgford solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found.

Q.

A.

The routine conveyancing protocol will be to get the following Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environment Search and Gypsum, and possibly specific searches, which may include a Land charges full Search.

Q.

Can you confirm which West Bridgford lenders your lawyers work with. Whose panels are you on?

Your solicitor will be able to state specific lenders' requirements.

Q.

What kind of local searches in respect to the risk of a flood in Nottinghamshire will the property lawyer in West Bridgford carry out?

A.

A vital step in the legal due diligence procedure involves your conveyancing solicitor making an application for environmental searches that set out detail in relation to West Bridgford historical flood risk. In addition the property lawyer in West Bridgford may advocate a more detailed (e.g. Homcheck) in-depth search.

Q.

Should I make use of the firm of solicitors suggested by our local agent?

A.

Many agents in Hucknall will have a referral arrangement with solicitors where they refer clients to them. These referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as an agent may choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.
