Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £259,000 property? I need affordable conveyancing.

Often extra charges may be added into the small print. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any disbursements to be paid must also be stated on the conveyancing quote based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.


Does our lawyer in Brigg report back to me about the amount to be paid of council tax on a Band C building before exchange?


A conveyancer will liaise with the governing North Lincolnshire local authority to discover the relevant council tax band and rates, which will then be included in the title report. Council tax charges for properties in Brigg are detailed at the North Lincolnshire local authority website. At the time of writing, 06 November 2012, the different rates are:

  • Band A - £1,041.00
  • Band B - £1,215.00
  • Band C - £1,389.00

  • Band E - £1,909.00
  • Band F - £2,257.00
  • Band G - £2,604.00
  • Band H - £3,124.00


We are moving in Brigg, and have a conveyancing quote from you. Are there any extra fees?


We do not hide any extra, hidden fees for any reason. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, meaning that your final bill could be much higher.


Which roads of Brigg are protected by a designated conservation area?


Conservation areas pinpoint local areas defined as being of historical merit. These restrictions create additional maintenance and repair responsibilities, but the benefits will include better maintained homes and gardens. Your conveyancing lawyer will be able to provide more details.


In regards to the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands, we are apprehensive that environmental searches might not be sufficient?


A competent Brigg conveyancer will carry out flood searches if the standard conveyancing searches identifies a Brigg flood risk.

It could be worth trying to get in touch with a local resident for further peace of mind or nearby Lincolnshire flood damage builder - like Havercroft Construction Ltd, Halifax Approach, Elsham Wolds Industrial Estate, Brigg, DN20 0SS Tel: 01652 682920.


Should we order a chancel search if we plan to buy in the parish of Hareby?


Your lawyer should confirm that a chancel search is ordered. In Brigg's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.


How long does it take for my assigned conveyancer to exchange contracts all of the conveyancing work on a maisonette in a Regency building we want to buy in Brigg?


The process can take anywhere between 1 month and 12 weeks contingent on various factors like the speed of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or whether there are any linked sales. Our chosen property solicitors are exceptionally results-focused and endeavour towards you moving home as rapidly we can.
