I need the cheapest conveyancing quote. What is included?


Various solicitors promote supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, however extra charges are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Any fees should be reasonable and clear. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


There are collections of on and offline handbooks giving details on doing the legal work yourself. Do we have to use Letchworth Garden City lawyer for my home move?


Theoretically there are no arguments why a seller shouldn't conduct your own conveyancing yourself. In reality however, a solicitor is familiar with a significant number of actions e.g. chasing missing documents or interpreting management accounts many of which require a skilled professional. Nevertheless firms and their solicitors are obliged to be in possession of the correct indemnity insurance in order to protect you from any professional failures.


Which local authority is responsible for Letchworth Garden City?


Letchworth Garden City is located in North Hertfordshire District Council, Council Offices, Gernon Road, Letchworth, Hertfordshire, SG6 3JF, phone: 01462 474 000


In regards to the fact that last year was second wettest year since 1920 we are worried that conveyancing searches (environmental) aren't sufficient?


An experienced Letchworth Garden City conveyancing solicitor will recommend that you get environmental searches if the environmental searches spots a significant risk of flooding in Letchworth Garden City

Sometimes buyers converse with a neighbour of the property for additional local information or local Hertfordshire flood damage builder e.g. D & P Decorators, 128 Wilbury Road, Letchworth Garden City, SG6 4JG Tel: 01462 685308.


We are buying a house in the parish of Great Berkhampstead. Should we get a chancel search?


Regardless of the Letchworth Garden City parish in which you are purchasing, the conveyancer should confirm that a chancel search be ordered. In Letchworth Garden City's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the current owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


I am purchasing a £365000. How is stamp duty rates calculated?


The rate of stamp duty that is payable will depend on several factors, primarily the house or flat's purchase price. Stamp duty will be £10950 on a £365000 property.


What is the authority that keeps records for publishing the condition of repair of conservation areas in Letchworth Garden City?


English Heritage, a government body, now maintain details in relation to the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in addition to the vulnerability. Conservation areas in Letchworth Garden City are set up by the local authority (North Hertfordshire) who are responsible for conservation area concerns from including things like back illuminated signs, the painting of houses and paths and footpaths.


Should I opt for a solicitor referred by the estate agent?


It is commonplace for agents to recommend a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, the agent may prefer to suggest the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.
