Q.

How do I get affordable conveyancing in Whaley Bridge?

A.

Several property lawyers promote cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement which unwary homeowners fail to check. Charges needs to be reasonable and clear and be applicable if your solicitor must complete unanticipated additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A conveyancing quote should also state costs to be paid to third parties, such as the Land Registry, (disbursements).

Q.

Please address how to defer paying for stamp duty tax?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is due for home purchases over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty mitigation should not be considered. Such schemes are costly and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself.

Q.

Would ordering a home buyers survey be a good idea when purchasing a property?

It is highly recommended that most purchasers instruct a house surveyor if purchasing in Whaley Bridge. Numerous issues affect a property, such as subsidence. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

We plan to buy a chapel in the parish of Mickleover. Will a chancel search be important?

A.

The Whaley Bridge conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered. Chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on new owners of a home where church councils have previously chosen not to do so.

Q.

Should I instruct a property lawyer referred by our local agent?

A.

Many estate agents have arrangements with solicitors whereby they refer work to them. These referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as some agents choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

What factors assist with getting a fast conveyancing process?

A.

As is often reported, instructing a proactive, diligent solicitor is crucial to moving faster. There are a number of tasks you can do, such as, contacting your solicitor regularly, promptly answering your solicitor's questions (by email if possible) and organising your finances.

Q.

How much will our conveyancing searches be?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches significantly varies. Searches are paid to a third party, and are not included in a quote for solicitor's fees.

Q.

At what point is it wise to instruct a solicitor to handle our sale?

A.

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, instructing as soon as possible is wise. Instructing a firm early could mitigate the chance of the sale or purchase aborting.
