I need to find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors. What are the risks?


Many online and high street property lawyers offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra charges are frequently hidden in the terms that unknowing home owners have not reviewed Extras needs to be reasonable. A quote should also clearly state any disbursements.


Do I need to opt for a lawyer referred by our estate agent in Solva?


The agent will often suggest one or more conveyancing firms, however, such referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as the agent may recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.


Which local authority looks after Martlesham?


Martlesham is located in Suffolk Coastal District Council, Melton Hill, Woodbridge, Suffolk, IP12 1AU, phone: 01394 383 789


What will the council tax cost on a residential Band G apartment in Martlesham?


Your band will conventionally be given as part of the conveyancing report on title, and by the local council. The latest tax charges for properties in Martlesham are published online at the Suffolk Coastal council site. At the time of writing on 14 January 2013 rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £994.00
  • Band B - £1,160.00
  • Band C - £1,325.00
  • Band D - £1,491.00
  • Band E - £1,823.00
  • Band F - £2,154.00
  • Band G - £2,485.00
  • Band H - £2,982.00


Do you advise that we get searches for chancel liability? We are buying in Martlesham.


Where land in Martlesham was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to pay for repairs to older church buildings. Some names or words such as 'glebe' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Church lands in Martlesham include St Mary the Virgin.


How is stamp duty calculated and how much should we pay on a £878000 property?


Stamp Duty depends on a small range of considerations, including the value of the house or flat, and whether it is in a 'disadvantaged area'. For a property in Martlesham sold for £878000, the rate will be £35120.


Alliance and Leicester is our mortgage lender, what will I need to be aware of?


Recently, a number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly increased conveyancing costs. We are able to act for many mortgage lenders, ensuring that an additional preferred solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.


DIY conveyancing without a Martlesham property lawyer is becoming possible as a buyer of a home. However, would it actually be practical ?


There are no arguments why you cant conceivably do the legal and technical work without a qualified Martlesham solicitor. That said, a property lawyer in Martlesham is familiar with a large number of assignments ranging from chasing outstanding papers or notifying the Land Registry of new charges most of which require training.
