How do we identify a genuinely cheap fee? I am trying to find fixed rate Ryhope conveyancing.


Many solicitors offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra charges will be included in the small print. Any extra charges should be reasonable and clear. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


What is the council tax on a residential semi-detached home in Ryhope?


In general, the report on title will contain the Sunderland council tax band. The latest tax charges for Ryhope are listed at the Sunderland local authority website. At the time of writing on 16 September 2012 the different rates are:

  • Band A - £896.00
  • Band B - £1,045.00
  • Band C - £1,194.00
  • Band D - £1,343.00
  • Band E - £1,642.00
  • Band F - £1,941.00

  • Band H - £2,687.00


Can we defer paying stamp duty to HM Revenue?

Stamp duty is usually due on purchases over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty scheme must be treated with caution by purchasers in Ryhope, as such schemes are highly expensive and very risky. There have been a small number of government-sponsored schemes, on the other hand, such as disadvantaged area relief, and your solicitor will advise if these may apply.


Environmental searches are calculated from archived records and when you factor in recent flooding such as the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in North East England are they the ideal way to report enough about the Ryhope flood risk?


Conveyancing searches conducted by the solicitor in Ryhope should include the more thorough search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

If you are worried you could try to contact a neighbour of the property.


Can Ryhope brownfield site topsoil still be contaminated?


Ryhope and the surrounding region has a legacy of chemical contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including water contaminants such as phenols.


What conservation areas are there in Ryhope?


Conservation areas denote neighbourhoods recognised as being of architectural merit. You may wish to contact the local council for more information, but your property solicitor will investigate this in detail.


Is gazumping accepted in Ryhope?


Gazumping arises when a house seller agrees to an offer and then rejects it in favour of a higher offer. It could occur days before contracts are due to be exchanged. There is almost always a risk of gazumping. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing a property solicitor as early as possible.
