How do we find the best conveyancing rates in South Yorkshire for a £617,000 property?


Confusion over this issue catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. These terms are often ignored by excited sellers and buyers, eager to get underway. Any fees ought to be fair and reasonable and be applicable solely where your solicitor must complete additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


How is South Yorkshire contaminated land checked when buying?


A range of contaminants caused by environmental factors may affect property, like proximity to landfill sites or military land. An environmental search should offer more information. Contamination can be caused by South Yorkshire waste sites, including Beechwood House, Kilnhurst Road, South Yorkshire, S62 5TL.


We are buying a property in a designated South Yorkshire conservation area, where can I find data in regards to the standard of repair?


English Heritage, a government body, have produced information about the state of repair of conservation areas along with the risk of standards slipping. Local conservation areas are designated by the local Rotherham planning authority, who police everything from the upkeep of public spaces to the impediment of ugly parking meters.


The current owner has unfortunately added unsightly artificial stone cladding to the house in South Yorkshire which I think may breach conservation area rules


The conveyancing solicitor should ascertain if the property is located within a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have the requisite consents from the Rotherham authority.


In 2 months we are going to move from our terraced residence in South Yorkshire to a bigger building in Yorkshire, North Riding . What is the right point to book a removals firm?


Most conveyancers will advocate that you hold off organising removals until such time as contracts have exchanged because a move date will not have been scheduled. Local home mover companies include Doncaster Delivery Service Man With Avan, 27/27/Laurel Terrace, Skellow, Doncaster, DN6 8AT Tel: 07407 474039 or James Valentine Removals, Park Nook Bannister Lane, Doncaster, DN6 8LT Call: 01924 850191.


What does the fees for the searches come to?


With Homeward Legal, a purchase conveyancing client required to pay at a maximum £249 for a standard bundle of searches. Searches are disbursements, and are charged 'at cost'.


We have a house to purchase. How do we aim for a fast conveyancing process?


Key to a faster move is to instruct a communicative solicitor. There are, however, numerous tasks you as the purchaser can do to accelerate the legal work. These include:

  • quickly answering your solicitor's questions
  • organising your finances, including arranging a mortgage
  • calling or emailing your solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays


Is a deed of postponement passed on at cost?


Some solicitors may attempt to pass off extra costs as necessary disbursements. It may be unclear whether a cost is a fee or disbursement, and whether it should be included. This charge is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your quote.
