How do I find affordable conveyancing in Beaminster?


Numerous firms claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional charges may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement which unwary buyers fail to check. Any charges listed in terms of engagement needs to be reasonable and clear. They only come into force where the conveyancer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A quote should also clearly state any disbursements.


Does Beaminster include many conservation areas?


Areas deemed to be of historic or architectural significance, such as mining villages, will be designated as areas of conservation. Your lawyer will be able to advise further and address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area.


Can you address how I bypass paying stamp duty land tax?


Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is generally due for homes valued at over 125,000 pounds. We firmly advise against any stamp duty reduction scheme. Such schemes are expensive and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.


Having heard about the groundwater flooding in Dorset we are concerned that environmental searches may not be detailed enough?


Flood risk searches conducted by a Beaminster conveyancing solicitor will include a more rigorous search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

Sometimes property buyers to converse with a neighbour of the property for some extra confidence.


Has soil in Beaminster been contaminated by tungsten?


Though the dangers are usually minor, if significant harm could be caused to people or protected species by the contamination, it is likely to be labelled contaminated land. Other sources of contaminated land include water contaminants such as hydrocarbons.


We plan to purchase a medieval barn conversion in Winterbourne Came. Will it be necessary to get a chancel search?


The conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search is taken out, regardless of the parish in which the residence being purchased is located. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have decided to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not be so in future. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


Northern Rock will be our lender - what do we need to know?


Over the last two years, some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel. This can mean increased legal costs for purchasers. We will act for most mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.


What would searches be?


With Homeward Legal, clients buying a property charged at most £249 for searches. Searches are disbursements paid to a third party, and are charged 'at cost'.
