What are the best conveyancing rates for a £599,000 home?


The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many sellers and buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many solicitors promote cheap conveyancing quotes, however extra charges may inflate your final invoice. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.


The estate agent we're using in Hebburn has named the firm of solicitors which they often use. Will it be easier to use this firm?


An agent will often endorse a conveyancing firm, however, these referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.


The vendor appears to have installed unbecoming dormer windows which I think may infringe the Sun Street conservation area rules.


Your conveyancing solicitor is required to ascertain if the property is within a conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have the essential permission from the Cheshire East council.


As a result of the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England we are wondering whether property environmental searches won't be sufficient?


Conveyancing searches (environmental) carried out by a conveyancing solicitor in Crewe should also include a more in depth search (Landmark) if required.

If you are nervous why not call a neighbour or local resident or regional Cheshire flooding repair expert - like Woodward & Co, 15 Business & Technology Centre, Radway Green, Crewe, CW2 5PR Tel: 01270 886353.


Please suggest how to defer paying SDLT?


Stamp Duty Land Tax is generally due for property over £125,000. We do not recommend any form of stamp duty avoidance. Such schemes are highly expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later.


Is gazumping frequent in Crewe?


Gazumping is common across England and Wales and takes place when a home owner agrees to the 1st buyer's offer, only to refuse it, opting for a second buyer's offer. The chance of getting gazumped is present in any transaction. Consider instructing your property solicitor as soon as you can to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.


We are buying a medieval barn conversion in the parish of Rostherne. Will a chancel search be necessary?


A solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is ordered, irrespective of the parish in which the house being purchased is located. In older areas of Crewe, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the owners of a house where parish councils may have not done so in the past. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.


Which particular property searches conveyancing searches should a solicitor in Crewe get when carrying out the conveyancing for a Crewe property?


The routine procedure will be to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW), Environmental and Cheshire Brine Search (Coal Authority), and possibly specific local searches, like a Coal and Brine.
