Our local agent has referred a conveyancing solicitor that they have used before. Will it be faster to use this firm?

Bookshops and the web have an abundance of on and offline publications going into great depth on DIY conveyancing. Do I therefore have to use lawyer in Yarm On Tees ?

A.

There are no arguments why a seller cannot take care of the your own conveyancing without Yarm On Tees conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

Do you recommend taking precautions to avoid paying stamp duty land tax?

A.

We firmly advise against any stamp duty reduction scheme, because these schemes are highly expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed meaning that the full stamp duty amount will be payable.

Q.

Which issues are important to aim for a fast conveyancing transaction?

A.

It is well established that moving faster is essential to instruct a proactive lawyer. Ask these questions when identifying your conveyancer:
