Q.

What are the best rates for conveyancing for a £350k property?

A.

Lack of clarity over this topic catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many law firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs will be included in small print which unwary buyers fail to check. Any extra costs found in terms and conditions should be fair. The conveyancing quote ought to define any disbursements to be paid.Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We are hopeful that we will sell our jointly owned house at a local property auction, can you use fast solicitors in Yate ?

A.

Annoyingly, too many law firms are far too sluggish which can cause huge amounts of stress and worry to moving.

Homeward Legal only work with conveyancers who are selected because they attempt to communicate by phone and email throughout the property chain (sequence of buyers and sellers) . Moreover our carefully chosen panel of property lawyers are specifically chosen as they have advanced automated practice management and IT systems to drive through the property sale fast.

Q.

The purchase is completing next April. How is Stamp Duty Land Tax calculated?

A.

The rate of stamp duty that is payable is dependent on the purchase price of the property. Stamp duty will be £53450 on a £1.069mil property.*

Q.

What can a Yate property lawyer recommend if the property we are intending to buy is within a conservation area in South Gloucestershire planning authority and has inappropriate doors fitted to it?

A.

South Gloucestershire local authority LLC1 searches carried out by your Yate property lawyer as part of the conveyancing will determine the existence of suitable council approval for changes to the building.

Q.

Will the property solicitor in Yate carry out any searches on the Gloucestershire Victorian semi-detached building I am intending to buy?

A.

The customary conveyancing procedure will be to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental and, depending on certain criteria, area-specific searches, like a Chancel Search.

Q.

How much time should conveyancing legal work require? The house being transacted is also in the area.

A.

For most property, the time required to sell or purchase property will vary, affected by a broad set of issues, for example, if the property is leasehold. 8 to 12 weeks is the average for many firms, whereas Homeward Legal drive the process forwards, completing within eight weeks.

Q.

Are pre-completion searches disbursements or fees?

A.

Comparing quotes can be difficult, considering differences in terminology. These costs are disbursements not fees, and is passed on to the buyer at cost.

Q.

Do many conservation areas in Yate have the potential to impact the building we are buying?

A.

Conservation areas indicate neighbourhoods of architectural or historic interest. Your solicitor will be able to advise further and address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area, regarding specific conservation areas in Yate.
