Q.

We are trying to find fixed rate conveyancing. What should be watch out for?

A.

Many firms promote cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra charges are frequently hidden in the small print. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Any charges included in the terms should be fair. They come into force only if the conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

Would you suggest making the effort to defer paying stamp duty land tax?

A.

SDLT is usually due for home purchases priced at over one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. Homeward Legal strongly advise against any stamp duty reduction, because these schemes are expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed .

Q.

The home being purchased is on a brownfield site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

Steps are taken across Woburn and the region to identify and resolve soil contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including acidic compounds and groundwater contamination.

Q.

How do we calculate stamp duty, what will it be on a £361000 home?

A.

Stamp Duty in Woburn depends on the valuation. On a £361000 residential property, stamp duty will be £10830.

Q.

May the legal charges hide any hidden charges?

A.

Homeward Legal will never charge any hidden costs regardless of circumstances.

Q.

Would you advise that I get a chancel search if we are purchasing a apartment near a church built in around the 1500s in Woburn?

A.

There are thousands of parishes throughout England and Wales. Property owners within some of these may be required to fund the repair of a local church. Some names or words such as 'rectory' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Church properties in the local area include St Mary.

Q.

Is contaminated land in Woburn an issue for many houses?

A.

Land may have been contaminated by a broad range of natural causes. Contaminants like nearby electrical substations will be investigated during the conveyancing process. Bufflers Holt Landfill, Bufflers Holt, Buckinghamshire, MK18 5DNcould be a local cause of land contamination in Woburn.

Q.

In what ways does a solicitor in Woburn report back on the risk of floods at Woburn for a residential property I am intending to buy?

A.

A property lawyer will apply for standard environmental searches that will include Woburn historical flood risk information. Depending on the results, your conveyancing solicitor in Woburn could recommend a more involved (e.g. Landmark) detailed flood risk search.
