How do we get affordable conveyancing?


Many solicitors advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often extra fees will be included in the terms of engagement. The disbursements to be paid ought to be defined on your quote Additional charges included in the terms should be clearly defined and only apply to matters if the conveyancer must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


To complete on our purchase ASAP, can we aim for fast legal work?


Contacting a proactive conveyancing solicitor is key a fast conveyancing transaction. Ask these questions when identifying your conveyancer:

  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?
  • Do they use email?
  • Do they order searches immediately?


I am planning on buying a sixties property in the middle of a conservation area in Hereford, where does one get more information about the standard of upkeep?


English Heritage, a government body, administer a list on the state of repair of conservation areas along with the trend of the area. Local conservation areas are designated by the local authority (Herefordshire) who maintain conservation area concerns from trees to street furniture.


Will my conveyancing solicitor in Hereford advise me on the risk of floods to properties in Hereford on a Regency property I am intending to buy?


A conveyancer will conduct standard formal conveyancing searches, which include Hereford area flood risk data. In addition the Hereford conveyancer will often advocate a more involved (e.g. Landmark) detailed search.


Would you advise taking action to get out of paying for stamp duty in Hereford?


Stamp Duty Land Tax is due on residential property valued at over one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. We strongly advise against any stamp duty avoidance. These schemes are highly expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later. There have been a number of government-sponsored schemes, on the other hand, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'.


When in the process should I speak to a solicitor in Hereford?


With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the sooner the better, as there are a number of tasks that can begin very early in the process. Instructing a solicitor to handle your Hereford conveyancing early for a sale may mean that information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer, whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.


Food risk searches use historic data but when one considers recent events such as the serious flooding in 2012 in the Midlands are they comfort enough to identify sufficient information about the evolving risk of flooding in Hereford?


Flood risk searches applied for by your conveyancer in Hereford should also include a far more specialist search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

Property purchasers sometimes also contact a neighbour for extra assurance or local Hereford and Worcester flood repair expert - e.g. Rainbow International, Marshall Business Centre/Westfields Trading Est, Hereford, HR4 9NS Tel: 01432 268626.


How do I find out whether a property is in a designated conservation area?


Areas deemed to be of historical merit, such as picturesque villages, will be defined as conservation areas. A property solicitor will address the impact buying in a conservation area may have and be able to offer more information.
