How do we find fixed rate conveyancing in Binfield?


Many online and high street solicitors promote theoretically cheap conveyancing. Often additional fees may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement. Additional costs listed in the solicitor's terms needs to be fair. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.


I am purchasing a church rectory in the parish of Stanford Dingley. Is a chancel search necessary?


Whichever Binfield parish in which you are buying, a solicitor could recommend a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, there is no guarantee that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will continue to be free from liability. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


When in the process is it appropriate to instruct a conveyancer?

In the majority of situations, instructing as early as possible is better. The legal work can then begin straight away. Instructing a solicitor early can reduce the likelihood of your sale or purchase aborting.


We are buying on a ex-industrial site. Can the soil still be contaminated?


Binfield's local area has a history of contamination from agriculture or industry, like much of the UK. Data on many contaminants, such as asbestos, will be included in an environmental search.


What does the Binfield property lawyer advise if the property we are buying is in a Bracknell Forest conservation area which appears to have incongruous doors fitted?


The local authority enquiries carried out by the solicitor during the conveyancing process will check if the property is in a designated conservation area and evidence of formal approval for changes to the property will be supplied. If no necessary permissions be available the solicitor will recommend the options which may include seeking an indemnity insurance policy or requesting retrospective permission from Bracknell Forest planning authority.


Which local authority is responsible for Binfield?


Binfield is located in Hart District Council, Civic Offices, Harlington Way, Fleet, Hampshire, GU51 4AE, Tel: 01252 622 122


How do you calculate SDLT?


Stamp Duty will depend on the valuation. For a residential property sold for £801000, the rate will be £32040 (source:, September 2012).


Is it recommended that we get searches for chancel liability when we are buying a Binfield residence on the same road as a 14th Century church?


Chancel repair liability can require some residential property owners to subsidise upkeep of nearby church property. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land in Binfield must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Church lands in Binfield include All Saints and St Mark's.
