Q.

How do we find a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

Several solicitors offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra fees will be included in the small print. This small print is often not read by property buyers and sellers in a hurry. Any disbursements must also be stated on the conveyancing quote based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.

Q.

In about four weeks we are expecting to move from our terraced house near Weybridge into our new maisonette in West Byfleet what is the best point to appoint a house removal firm?

A.

Most lawyers usually encourage home buyers and sellers wait arranging removals until after the contracts have exchanged has been notified as typically a definitive move date wont have been formally agreed. If you are looking for a local company try Luxfords, 34 Avro Way/Brooklands Business Pk, Weybridge, KT13 0XQ Telephone: 01932 410100 or Aspen Movers Ltd, Unit 26 Trade City Brooklands Business Pk Avro Way, Weybridge, KT13 0YF on 01932 562994.

Q.

My local agent has offered the conveyancing that they have used before. Do we need to use this firm?

Many agents in Newport Pagnell will have referral deals with solicitors whereby they refer work to them, however, such referrals should be compared against alternatives, as an agent may select whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

Will my Weybridge conveyancing solicitor report back to me about the cost of the council tax on a Band E apartment before completion?

A.

The property lawyer will write to the Elmbridge local authority to ascertain the currently applicable council tax charges which will be detailed in the conveyancer's title report.

The latest council tax rates for properties in Weybridge are detailed on the Elmbridge local authority site. At the time of authoring on 17 January 2013 the rates are:

  • Band A - £1,035.00
  • Band B - £1,208.00
  • Band C - £1,381.00
  • Band D - £1,553.00
  • Band E - £1,898.00
  • Band F - £2,243.00
  • Band G - £2,588.00
  • Band H - £3,106.00

Q.

Following recent news about the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since records began I am apprehensive that property conveyancing searches aren't sufficient?

A.

Environmental searches applied for by your lawyer in Weybridge should include a far more informative flood search if the risk warrants it.

You may be able to contact a future neighbour for added local information if you are still worried.

Q.

The purchase is completing next November, how is stamp duty worked out?

A.

The rate of stamp duty you will owe is calculated with reference to the valuation. For a house or flat sold for £300000, SDLT will be £9000.*

Q.

When in the conveyancing process do we need to get a conveyancer in Weybridge?

A.

If you choose a firm with 'no move, no fee' protection, earlier is preferable. The legal work can then begin immediately. Some groups suggest waiting before instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but you will then be at a serious disadvantage in the event of a contract race, or buyer eager to move quickly.

Q.

What are Weybridge's conveyancing searches?

A.

Conveyancing searches are standard queries undertaken for the buyer, including an environmental search. Searches are very useful whether buying with a mortgage or not, but will only cover issues with the property's title.
