I need a cheap solicitor quote for purchasing a leasehold home. What do I need to check for?


Numerous property lawyers promote cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra fees will be included in the solicitor's terms. Any charges should be fair and be applied only where your solicitor is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The disbursements to be paid should be included on a conveyancing quote. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


We are buying a property where the seller looks to have fitted incongruous artificial stone cladding on the home in Little Burstead which we think might exclude conservation area guidelines


Your conveyancing solicitor will establish whether the property is inside a designated conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have essential consents from the local council.


In what ways does my Little Burstead conveyancer report back on the risk and history of local flooding to properties in Little Burstead on a seventies property I am hoping to buy?

An experienced lawyer will carry out standard protocol conveyancing and environmental searches that will include Little Burstead flood risk information. A more thorough conveyancing search, such as the Landmark search, will typically be proposed by your property solicitor in Little Burstead if in the event that the environmental search suggest flood risk to the property.


What can we do to get out of paying SDLT?


We do not recommend any form of stamp duty reduction scheme, as such schemes are expensive and unreliable. There have been a small number of official schemes, such as for first-time buyers.


Flood risk searches are conveyancing protocol but considering climate change e g the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since records began are they the best way to determine sufficient information about the evolving Little Burstead flood risk area?


Flood risk searches applied for by the Little Burstead solicitor will also include a more rigorous search (Landmark) if required.

If you are still anxious try to contact a local resident.


Do I need to make use of a conveyancing referred by our local agent?


The agent can influence a solicitors firm they refer a large volume of work to, and can therefore induce a solicitor to complete sooner. However, if they are paid a referral fee, some agents choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.


Are there any areas of conservation in Little Burstead?


Locales deemed to be of architectural or historic interest, such as fishing villages, will be recorded as areas of conservation. A conveyancing solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities and be able to advise further.


My lender is Bank of Ireland - is there anything I need to be aware of?


Buyers should be aware that some lenders have limited the firms who can act for them. This can mean higher conveyancing costs for purchasers. We will act on behalf of many lenders in the UK to keep legal costs to a minimum.
