    Frequently Asked Questions


    What lender panels are you on?

    We are on the panel of solicitors for majority of high street lenders. Please provide details of your proposed lender and we will advise if we are on their panel.

    How do I found out how long is left on the lease?

    You can find this out by ordering an official copy of the title register for the property from HM Land Registry or by asking the seller/ selling agents to provide a copy of the Lease.

    How much Stamp Duty do I have to pay?

    Stamp Duty Land Tax is calculated based on the value of the property you are buying.  It will also depend on whether you are a first time buyer and whether this will be an additional home or a buy to let property.   We will provide you with a calculation of the amount of stamp duty land tax due once we have all your details.

    What time do I have to move out on the day of completion?

    Under the Standard Conditions of Sale, the contractual time is usually 2pm and the property must be vacant by then.  The exception to this is if the Standard Conditions of Sale has been varied and another time has been agreed in the Contract.

    I have been arrested – what do I do?

    It is your legal right to be offered FREE legal advice from a solicitor. As soon as you arrive at the Police Station you should ask the Custody Sergeant to contact HSR Solicitors in order that we can attend to represent you.  One of our solicitors or experienced accredited Police Station representatives is available 24 hours a day.

    I have been charged with an offence, what do I do now?

    Contact HSR Solicitors as soon as possible to let us know the time and date you are to appear at Court and to arrange an appointment to see us for an initial discussion.

    Do I have to pay for you to represent me?

    Although you are entitled to free legal advice at the Police Station regardless of means, legal aid for representation at Court will depend on the seriousness of the offence and your means.  We will be able to advise you as to whether you would be eligible for legal aid.
