Read about the area ;

Eye's closest train station is Diss and Eye's nearest airport is Elmsett, Whatfield Rd Airport (18 miles). Norwich International Airport is 25 miles and Elmsett Airport is 19 miles away.

Hartismere Eye is a nearby hospital.


What will the overall charge be on the sale of a 487,000 property? I am trying to find a fixed rate conveyancing quote.


Many solicitors advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional charges are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Excited home owners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Extra fees should be fair.


Which regions of Eye are secured by a conservation area?


With over eight thousand such areas listed throughout the country, the areas in or near Eye will include numerous conservation areas. Your lawyer will be able to advise further, in regard to relevant conservation area restrictions in Eye.


How do I avoid paying stamp duty to the Revenue?


Homeward Legal do not advise clients arrange any stamp duty mitigation scheme, as such schemes are expensive and can be very unlikely to succeed. There have been a small number of government-sponsored schemes, on the other hand, such as disadvantaged area relief.


How many weeks will it take my assigned property lawyer to finish the conveyancing process on a detached home we are intending to purchase in Eye?

The legal process can take anywhere from 3 weeks and 3 months, which can depend on a number of issues, like the efficiency of the sellers lawyer, or the speed of other lawyers in the chain.


If I am buying in the parish of Cratfield, should we order a chancel search?


Your Eye conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is taken out. In Eye's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on new owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.


What will the council tax cost on a residential Band B apartment in Eye?


Your relevant council tax band should usually be reported within the title report along with the local council. The latest tax charges for properties in Eye are tabled online at the Mid Suffolk council site. Currently on 17 July 2012 the rates are:

  • Band A - £1,000.00
  • Band B - £1,167.00
  • Band C - £1,333.00
  • Band D - £1,500.00
  • Band E - £1,833.00
  • Band F - £2,167.00
  • Band G - £2,500.00
  • Band H - £3,000.00


How soon do you need to instruct a conveyancer to handle our purchase?


In the majority of situations, earlier is preferable. Early instruction of a conveyancing solicitor could mitigate the chance of the other side pulling out.


Is it necessary that I get a chancel liability search? We are purchasing a Eye property on the same street as a rectory.


Property owners neighbouring nearby church property may be required to subsidise repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. As a result of the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. Eye Church of England properties where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Matthew and St Peter & St Paul.
