What do you charge for the legal fees on a £242,000 property? We are trying to find a discount conveyancing quote.


The lack of clarity surrounding this topic catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers claim to offer cheap conveyancing, but additional fees are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Additional charges listed in the terms should be reasonable and clear. Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.


I plan to purchase a residence in the parish of Langford. Should we get a chancel search?


Regardless of the Bloxham parish you are purchasing in, the conveyancing solicitor might recommend that a chancel search be taken out. Although some church councils have taken the decision to charge chancel repairs on new owners, there is no way to be certain that a parish which has not imposed liability will remain liability-free for new owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.


What do fixtures and fittings relate to?


In general, fixtures are fixed to the property and cannot be easily removed, whereas fixtures can be more easily removed. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction, and which makes a fixtures and fittings form so necessary.


When do we need to get a solicitor to act on our purchase?


If you choose a firm with 'no move, no fee' protection, the earlier, the better. The legal work can then begin straight away. Some groups recommend postponing instruction until a chain is completed, but opting to delay can jeopardise your sale or purchase.


How is stamp duty tax determined, what should it be on a £486k property?


Stamp Duty Land Tax will depend on the property's price. It will be £14580 on a £486k Bloxham home.*

*Correct 01/01/2013


Please state how to get out of paying stamp duty land tax?


SDLT commonly must be paid on homes sold for more than one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. Stamp duty mitigation must be treated with caution by purchasers in Bloxham. Such schemes are expensive and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself.


What will a Bloxham conveyancing lawyer advise if the property I hope to purchase is within a Cherwell conservation area which has inappropriate satellite dishes installed?


Local authority search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) conducted by the solicitor should identify the existence of suitable permission for alterations to the building. In the absence of any the necessary permissions the solicitor will recommend the best alternatives, which include getting retrospective permission from the planning authority or seeking cover from an indemnity policy.


Will my assigned conveyancer in Bloxham inform me about the cost of council tax for a Band F house before completing on the purchase?


The property lawyer will write to the governing council to ascertain the correct council tax charges which will be written in the title report.
