We are looking for affordable conveyancing. as we are on a budget.


Many firms promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However extra costs are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement which unwary buyers fail to check. The conveyancing quote must also state any disbursements.We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.


What will affect land in Banbury, and are they checked for thoroughly?


Banbury property is contaminated by a range of factors caused by man and by nature, and factors including hazardous and regulated installations or waste treatment sites in the area should be considered as part of the appropriate search. Contamination can be caused by local waste sites, including Old Mineral Works, Aynho Road, Oxfordshire, OX17 3NT.


Is a bankruptcy search a fee or disbursement?

It is not always clear if a charge is a disbursement or a fee. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on to the buyer at cost.


We are buying a unique house in the middle of a conservation area, how do I find more data on the current standard of upkeep?


Conservation areas in Banbury are designated by Cherwell who preside over conservation area concerns from trees to the impediment of vacant buildings. English Heritage, a government body, keep records of the state of repair of conservation areas.


The purchase is completing next April, how is stamp duty assessed?


Stamp Duty Land Tax is based on the valuation. On a £1081000 house, stamp duty will be £54050.*

*Correct as of July 2012


What does the Banbury property lawyer do when the property I am intending to buy is located in a registered conservation area and has unapproved window frames fitted?


A property solicitor will make enquiries to identify if your new home is inside a designated conservation area and whether any modifications have essential consents from the Cherwell planning authority.


Does Banbury include any conservation areas?


Conservation areas define regions designated as being of historical or architectural value. You may wish to contact the local council for more detail, but your solicitor will investigate this in detail.


Could the legal charges incorporate any additional charges?


No. Homeward Legal's solicitors do not charge any extra, hidden costs.
