Thinking of moving to the Arlesey area? Handy nearby travel and services information -

Are additional fees applied? I am trying to find affordable conveyancing in Arlesey.


Many firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing, but extra costs are often hiding in small print, left unregarded by busy property buyers and sellers Any disbursements should also be included on a conveyancing quote Additional costs should be fair. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


In relation to the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since records began, we are concerned that flood risk searches might not be sufficient?


Conveyancing and environmental searches applied for by the Arlesey property solicitor should also include a more informative search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

If you are apprehensive it may be worth trying to approach a neighbour of the property or regional Bedfordshire flood damage business try: DH Decor Ltd, 231A High St, Arlesey, SG15 6SZ Tel: 01462 634754.


We are using a lender in Bedfordshire, and need to know which Arlesey lenders you can work with. Which panels are you on?


Homeward Legal work with the majority of lenders serving Arlesey buyers. Arlesey lenders and mortgage specialists include Mortgage Quest, 2 Mallard Cl, Shefford, SG17 5YS, Independent Mortgage Advice Bureau, 36 High St, Stevenage, SG1 3EF, and Financial Freedom Ltd, Cornfields/Church La, Graveley, Hitchin, SG4 7LU. Your conveyancing solicitors can confirm additional costs or hurdles associated with your chosen lender.


The vendor has installed incongruous stone cladding to the maisonette in Arlesey which I think might overstep local conservation area rules


A property lawyer is required to find out if the property is within a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have the necessary consents.


Please confirm how to avoid paying for SDLT?


SDLT is generally payable for houses priced at over 125,000 pounds. We do not advise property buyers expose their finances to any form of stamp duty mitigation. Such schemes are often uneconomical and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later.


Will the report on title prepared by the Arlesey property solicitor detail the amount of council tax on a Band C flat prior to completion?


The lawyer will consult with the council to ask about the latest council tax band and rates, which will then be included in the conveyancing report on title. Correct rates for homes in Arlesey are set out in detail online at the Central Bedfordshire local authority website. On, 04 November 2012, the rates are:

  • Band A - £1,098.00
  • Band B - £1,281.00
  • Band C - £1,464.00
  • Band D - £1,647.00
  • Band E - £2,012.00
  • Band F - £2,378.00
  • Band G - £2,744.00
  • Band H - £3,293.00


Do we need a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Blunham, near Arlesey?


The solicitor instructed to handle the transaction may suggest that a chancel search is taken out. In older areas of Arlesey, chancel repair may be imposed on the owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.


Do your solicitors do auction conveyancing in Arlesey?


Our company is highly experienced with auction buyers and sellers. Very often unusual homes are purchased in property auctions which tend to necessitate further. We therefore suggest that purchasers appoint the lawyer prior to the actual auction to allow enough time for a thorough review. After the auction day your appointed property conveyancing lawyer is ready for finishing all of the legal work inside the limited time frame as typically required .
