How do we find the best conveyancing rates for a £741k residence?


Many online and high street law firms offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees may be added into small print, left unregarded by busy homeowners Extra fees found in terms of engagement ought to be fair and reasonable.


We are buying on a brownfield site. Is the top-soil likely to remain contaminated by waste minerals like nickel?


Some metal contamination may have occurred throughout Salisbury, but contaminated land areas are labelled as such if the danger to the environment is judged to be too great. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Salisbury, including local authorities.


Will my Salisbury property lawyer inform me about the cost of council tax for a Band D property prior to completing on the purchase?


A solicitor will liaise with the appropriate Wiltshire local council to ascertain the correct council tax rates, which will then be written in the title report. The latest tax rates for residents of Salisbury are published on the Wiltshire local authority website. On, 02 August 2012, band rates are:

  • Band A - £1,010.00

  • Band E - £1,852.00

If my family are buying a Salisbury flat on the same street as a church constructed in the 16th Century, do I need to get a chancel liability search?


Where land in Salisbury was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to subsidise maintenance of local churches. Some names or words such as 'rectory' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Salisbury church properties where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Mark, St Martin, Fisherton Anger St Paul and St Martin.


Do fixtures and fittings include things like bookcases?


Buyers in Salisbury are frequently confused by the lack of detail regarding what fixtures and fittings will be included in a sale. A fixtures and fittings form can avoid any disputes and will clarify precisely which items will be sold with the property.


What length of time may the legal work to sell an apartment generally need in Salisbury?


The amount of time taken to transfer a home can vary. This wide range results from several aspects such as whether either party has a mortgage. For most firms in England and Wales, the average is between 8 to 12 weeks, we however take a more proactive attitude, pushing a transaction to complete within 8 weeks if possible.


I am purchasing a newly-constructed home. Is it that important that 'conveyancing searches' are undertaken?


Conveyancing searches are standard questions raised by the buyer's solicitor through several agencies, including a British waterways search. Purchasers should know that, conveyancing searches cover solely the legal aspects of the purchase.


Why might purchase conveyancing work require weeks?


The legal work needed to sell or purchase a property can be drawn out even in the best of circumstances. Sometimes, these reasons are beyond the conveyancing solicitor's influence. We see how frustrating such delays may be and strive to diminish the consequences of these delays if it can be achieved by proactively handling all enquiries.
