Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? We are looking for fixed rate West Hendon conveyancing.

A.

Many conveyancers claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional fees may be added into the terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers, eager to get underway. The disbursements to be paid should also be clearly stated on a quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

How much time may the conveyancing process take, on average? We have already found a buyer.

A.

The amount of time required to transact residential property does vary. This is dependent on a broad set of factors which can include whether there is a mortgage. With our West Hendon property specialists, each client is handled as fast as possible, without compromising on service.

Q.

In the next few we are hoping to move out of our period residence in West Hendon into a new property in High Barnet at what stage to appoint a home removal company?

A.

We will advocate that you delay arranging removals until such time as exchange of contracts as typically a definitive home moving date wont have been set. Local firms include Kingsbury Removals, Church La, London, NW9 8JE Phone: 0845 660 1832 or London Rubbish Removals, 6 Reeves Av, London, NW9 8LP Tel: 07733 988307.

Q.

How frequent is gazumping?

A.

This arises when a house seller approves an offer and then refuses it, opting for a second buyer's offer. It could happen only days prior to exchange. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a chance of gazumping. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct your property solicitor as early as possible.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a Sixties end of terrace property in West Hendon?

A.

Typically a conveyancing report on title will provide the Brent council tax band. Correct charges for homes in West Hendon are set out online at the Brent local authority site. At the time of authoring, 21 September 2012, band rates are:

  • Band A - £910.00

  • Band E - £1,669.00
  • Band F - £1,973.00
  • Band G - £2,276.00
  • Band H - £2,731.00

Q.

Is a bankruptcy search a fee or disbursement?

A.

Some firms hide fees which should be included as disbursements. It may be unclear whether a cost is a fee or not, and if it ought to be included. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on to the buyer at cost.

Q.

I am buying a £797000. How is Stamp Duty Land Tax calculated?
