Romiley key data:

Please confirm the cheapest fee for a £573,000 property? We are trying to find an affordable Romiley conveyancing estimate.


This catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra fees are frequently hidden in the small print. A conveyancing quote should list costs to be paid to third parties, such as the local authority, (disbursements).


Which local authority is responsible for Romiley?


Romiley is located in Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council, Town Hall, Edward Street, Stockport, SK1 3XE, contact: 0161 480 4949


What sort of environmental conveyancing searches as respects the uncertain risk of a flood at Greater Manchester will the conveyancing solicitor in Romiley carry out for a Victorian property we intend to buy?

A conveyancing solicitor will apply for standard formal conveyancing searches that incorporate Romiley flood risk information.


Has top-soil in Romiley been contaminated by rubidium?


Given the region's industrial and agricultural history in parts of Romiley, soil contamination is difficult to avoid. The local authority for Romiley will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.


My husband and I are planning to buy in Romiley. Are there any conservation areas?


Locales deemed to be of architectural merit, such as mining villages, will be designated as areas of conservation. You may wish to contact the local council for more information, but your conveyancing lawyer will investigate this in detail during the property transaction.


How do you determine stamp duty and what should we budget for a £1030000 home?


The Stamp Duty Land Tax that will be due will depend on a limited set of factors, most importantly the purchase price. Stamp duty will be £51500 on a £1030000 house.


What search enquiries does the Romiley property lawyer do when carrying out the conveyancing for a Romiley property?


Standard procedure will be to get Local Authority Search, Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal), Environment Search and Coal Mining Search and, depending on certain criteria, area-specific searches for example Cheshire Brine Search.


Do we need to be aware of 'fixtures and fittings'?


Chiefly, fixtures are 'fixed' to the property and cannot be easily removed and fixtures are free-standing. Fixtures and fittings are frequently disregarded, hence the importance of a complete fixtures and fittings form, agreed by both parties.
