Q.

What are the best rates for conveyancing for a £384,000 house?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this point catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra costs are often hiding in the small print. Charges should be reasonable. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

Do you advise looking into how to hold off paying stamp duty?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is usually due for property sold for more than 125,000 pounds. Homeward Legal do not recommend any stamp duty reduction. Such schemes are expensive and can be very unlikely to succeed.

Q.

Will the West Malling property solicitor get official or personal searches on my home purchase?

A.

The property lawyer will brief you regarding the most appropriate course of action, depending on things like search price. If personal searches are used, your solicitor might try to find a search agent e.g Conveyancing Liability Solutions Ltd t/a CLS, Suite 5, 40 Churchill Square, Kings Hill, West Malling, ME19 4YU Tel: 01732 897530 Fax: 01732 897531

Q.

What type of searches regarding the risk of local flooding around Kent will the West Malling property solicitor carry out?

A.

An integral step in the legal due diligence process involves your conveyancer applying for conveyancing searches that go in specific information regarding West Malling flood risk area data. Additionally the West Malling conveyancing solicitor will typically advise a more specialist flood risk search.

Q.

In about 6 weeks we are anticipating to be finally moving out of our period home in West Malling to a property in Tunbridge Wells when to choose a removals firm?

A.

We would tend to suggest that you wait arranging removals until after exchange of contracts as beforehand in all probability a final home moving date wont have been scheduled. For a local Kent firm G P Removals, Windsor Works/London Rd, Addington, West Malling, ME19 5AN Telephone: 0800 644 0182 or Addington Man & Van, Park Cottage/Addington Green, Addington, West Malling, ME19 5BG on 01732 841932.

Q.

How is stamp duty determined and what amount should we budget for a £532000 property?

A.

SDLT is based on the valuation. It is £21280 on a £532000 residential property in West Malling.

Q.

Will a report on title prepared by the West Malling solicitor detail the cost of council tax for a Band C property before contracts are exchanged?

A.

The property solicitor will consult with the local council to discover the applicable council tax charges which will subsequently be detailed in the title report. The correct rates for West Malling are detailed on the local authority website.

Q.

What actual property should a conveyancing solicitor in West Malling conduct when acting on a West Malling flat?

A.

The conventional conveyancing protocol will be to get Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW), Environmental and Coal Mining Search as well as any less common searches for example Commons Registration Search.
