Q.

I need to find discount conveyancing in West Ham. What do we need to check for?

A.

Several solicitors purport to offer cheap conveyancing. Often additional fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. The disbursements to be paid must also be stated on a West Ham conveyancing quote. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

What causes the conveyancing process in West Ham to require months?

A.

The conveyancing process could be exposed to significant delays. We see how frustrating such delays may be and do our best to reduce the cost of these delays by chasing for prompt responses.

Q.

What can our conveyancing searches cost?

A.

The cost of searches considerably varies, depending on the searches chosen. Searches are paid to a third party, and are charged 'at cost'.

Q.

Is it recommended to get a chancel search? We are buying a property in West Ham.

A.

Property owners near to church property in the locality may be required to fund repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Following a change in the law, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013.

Q.

I am intending to purchase a medieval barn conversion in Harlington. Will a chancel search be required?

A.

Your solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is taken out, whichever parish where the residence being bought is found. Although some parish councils have decided to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, there is no way to be certain that a parish which has not imposed liability will not automatically be the case for future owners. For property in the parish of Harlington, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Can you state how to avoid paying stamp duty on the purchase?

A.

SDLT is usually due for purchases over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty mitigation must be treated with caution by purchasers in West Ham, as such schemes are often uneconomical and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed and the total stamp duty tax may be payable.

Q.

Do we need to get a Homebuyer Report for this home purchase?

A.

Homeward Legal strongly advise that buyers book a RICS surveyor to undertake a survey when buying in West Ham. There are a wide range of issues which will impact a property, for example failed double glazing or ground movement.

Q.

Could the fees for my conveyancing hide any hidden costs?

A.

Homeward Legal never charge any hidden fees. Some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.
