How do we find a discount conveyancing estimate?

Q.

How much would the fee for our searches come to?

A.

The cost of searches on a purchase in West Croydon varies greatly, subject to the searches your lender requires. These searches are disbursements paid to a third party.

Q.

Are we advised to get a chancel search if I plan to purchase in the parish of Tooting Graveney, near West Croydon?

A.

A lawyer should confirm that a chancel search be taken out, regardless of the parish in which the house being purchased is found. Through some Parochial Church Councils have taken the decision to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, it is not possible to be certain that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will not be so in future. For property in the parish of Tooting Graveney, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

How can conveyancing in West Croydon take months to complete?

A.

The conveyancing process will occasionally suffer setbacks. We aim to minimise their effect wherever a difference can be made.

Q.

Would you advise taking action to get out of paying HMRC stamp duty?

A.

Homeward Legal do not recommend conveyancing clients expose their finances to any stamp duty avoidance. Such schemes are costly and unreliable.

Q.

I have read about conveyancing as a seller of a maisonette. Would it be insensible to do the conveyancing on a DIY basis myself?

A.

If you are so inclined have a try you can practically look after the legal work without using a professional property solicitor in West Croydon. All conveyancing professionals would argue this is a risky course of action amateur lawyers might come a cropper the appropriate insurance cover which solicitors firms are duty bound to carry.

Q.

Would acquiring a building survey be advisable if we are purchasing a home?

A.

We strongly advise that the majority of buyers book a property surveyor to carry out a survey. It is a fact that there are many problems that can negatively affect a property, which a conveyancing solicitor will not report on. These include rotten roof timbers and flat roof leaks.
