How do I get fixed rate conveyancing in St Albans?


Many conveyancers claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However extra charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Additional charges ought to be reasonable. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


As a result of the fact that 4 of the top 5 wettest years recorded were in last 10-12 years we are worried that property conveyancing searches may not be exacting enough?


A thorough conveyancing solicitor in St Albans will suggest that you also get detailed environmental searches (Landmark database search) if the first conveyancing searches establishes a local St Albans flood risk.

It could be worth trying to get in touch with a next door neighbour to gain further comfort.


What will the St Albans conveyancing solicitor advise if the flat I hope to buy is situated in a St Albans council conservation area which has out of place stone cladding installed?


St Albans planning authority enquiries conducted by a solicitor during the legal process should find out whether the property is inside a conservation area proof of the appropriate permissions for modifications will be requested.


Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like tables?


In the main, there is no absolute definition of fixtures and fittings. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This makes a fixtures and fittings form so necessary.


What can searches be?


The cost of searches can vary, subject to the searches your lender requires. Searches are charged at cost.


How is Stamp Duty Land Tax calculated and what should we pay on a £60000 residence?


Stamp Duty in St Albans will depend on the purchase price. Stamp duty will be £0 on a £60000 house.


An un-planned event demand that we ideally want to complete on the conveyancing process on a maisonette in a very limited time, do you employ fast St Albans conveyancing solicitors ?


Sometimes property conveyancing lawyers are slow which adds huge amounts of aggravation to the property conveyancing process.

Our solicitors approach is different - we use new e conveyancing systems . Importantly , we always give you a solicitor trained to communicate with all parties in the buyer and seller chain .


We are intending to buy a home in Digswell. Is a chancel search important?


Your conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search. In St Albans's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have previously chosen not to do so. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
