I am trying to find a solicitors firm that offers cheap conveyancing in Beckermet. What should we check?


Many buyers seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates. Many firms advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional fees are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Additional fees should be reasonable and clear and be applicable solely where your lawyer must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Your quote should state any disbursements to be paid.


The purchase is completing next April. What should be determined for SDLT?


Stamp Duty will depend on the purchase price of the house. On a £1128000 house or flat in Beckermet, stamp duty will be £56400.


Alliance and Leicester is our lender - what will I need to check?


In some cases, lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. Homeward Legal can act on behalf of the majority of lenders in the UK.


The agent has suggested the conveyancing that they have used before. Must I instruct this firm?

Your agent will refer a solicitor, however, these referrals should be thoroughly considered, as the agent may prefer to suggest the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.


The vendor looks to have installed unseemly doors on the flat in Beckermet which we think may break nearby conservation area rules


A lawyer is required to establish if the property is affected by a designated conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have requisite consents from the local authority.

Should no local authority consents be supplied your solicitor will give you professional advice on the alternatives such as taking out an indemnity policy or obtaining retrospective permission from the appropriate local authority.


I am buying a converted investment property in a designated conservation areas. Where can I find more information about the standard of repair?


Following a campaign, English Heritage maintain records of the state of conservation areas. Conservation areas in Beckermet are set up by the local Copeland planning authority, who are responsible for everything from paths and footpaths to neon signs.


Do we need a chancel search if we are purchasing in the parish of Newbiggin, near Beckermet?


Your solicitor might recommend a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils have chosen to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not continue to be so. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.


Do we need a surveying expert to examine the property purchase in Beckermet?


It is advised that all purchasers book a survey. There are many defects that can negatively affect a property, including flat roof leaks and subsidence. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.
