Q & A's on Conveyancing Quotes Portsmouth
A: While many solicitor’s shop windows may shout that they offer a conveyancing package for £199, this is not the case. Search fees and other disbursements amount to more than £200, so there are bound to be other charges on top of this figure. At conveyancingsupermarket.com, a panel of professional and experienced conveyancers have been selected and recommended so that buyers can compare set prices with no hidden charges – the figure quoted is all that you pay.
A: Not at all. In many cases, an estate agent will not be recommending a conveyancer because he is the best, but because he will receive commission of between £300 to £1,000. Comparing quotes from independent conveyancers is the recommended way to find the best deal for you.
A: Firstly, there is a local authority search. This is a thorough investigation of the property and its surroundings, to find if there are any plans for major road building or new housing developments in the local area. Land Registry checks look in detail to find whether the Title Register and Title Plan are in order; a water authority search will find how water is provided to the property and how public drains may affect it; an environmental search will look for possible causes of contamination and the impact of local industry, landfill, and the risk of radon gas or flooding.
A: Stamp Duty is only payable on properties selling for more than £125,000. Above this, the duty increases in bands until the higher threshold of £1.5 million, which incurs 12% of the purchase price. A property in Portsmouth costing £425,000 would be liable for Stamp Duty of £11,250. See www.stampcalculator.co.uk for a simple way to calculate any amount of duty.
