How do we find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?


Both high-street and online solicitors offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra costs are often hiding in the terms. Additional fees found in the small print needs to be reasonable and clear and be applicable if your lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements should also be included on the conveyancing quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.


What can I do to get out of paying out for stamp duty land tax?


SDLT is usually due on houses sold for over £125,000. Stamp duty scheme should not be considered. Such schemes are costly and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later.


Should we get a chancel search if I plan to buy in the parish of Marsh Gibbon, near Milton Keynes?


Whichever Milton Keynes parish you are buying in, a lawyer could recommend a chancel search. In Milton Keynes's much older areas, chancel repair may be imposed on the current owners

of a home where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.


Will a home in Eaton Manor be suitable for disadvantaged area relief?


Stamp duty relief for disadvantaged areas in Milton Keynes expires in April 2013. Disadvantaged areas in the vicinity Milton Keynes currently include Woughton and Eaton Manor. Update: As of the 2013/14 tax year, stamp duty relief for disadvantaged areas is no longer available.


How much will my searches cost?


The cost of conveyancing searches for a Milton Keynes purchase considerably varies. These searches are disbursements paid to a third party, and are charged 'at cost'.


Is it advisable that I get a chancel search? I am buying in Milton Keynes.


As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Milton Keynes which was once owned by a 'lay rectors' can be liable for maintenance of church property in the locality. Some names or words such as 'glebe' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Milton Keynes ecclesiastical properties include All Saints', Loughton, Cross & Stable, Downs Barn and Stantonbury Christ Church.


My partner and I are purchasing a building in Milton Keynes, and would like to verify if there are many conservation areas.


These areas specify areas of architectural or historic interest. The local authority will offer more information about local areas of conservation, and the solicitor handling your purchase will confirm potential liability for unauthorised works.


Following recent news about the fact that an estimated 2 8m people are at risk from surface flooding I am apprehensive that environmental searches won't be exacting enough?


Conveyancing searches conducted by a solicitor in Milton Keynes will include the far more specialist Landmark flood search if it is felt necessary.

If you are still apprehensive you might try to approach a future neighbour or regional South East England flood repair expert - try: Rainbow International, 7 Blundells Rd, Bradville, Milton Keynes, MK13 7HA Tel: 01908 220005.
