How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? I am trying to find a low cost conveyancing quote.


Many online and high street solicitors claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra costs can inflate your final invoice. Fees included in the solicitor's terms needs to be reasonable. A quote for conveyancing in West Yorkshire should also clearly state costs to be paid to third parties, including search providers, (disbursements).


When is it appropriate to find a solicitor to handle our sale?


The straightforward answer is, the sooner the better. Early instruction of a conveyancing firm can reduce the likelihood of the transaction stalling.


How much will the conveyancing searches cost?


The cost of conveyancing searches can vary substantially, depending on the particular searches ordered. Searches are disbursements paid to a third party, and will not be included in the quoted conveyancing fees.


Do 'conveyancing searches' affect a decision to buy?


Conveyancing searches are a standardised collection of queries raised by the solicitor with several agencies, including a search of the Index Map. Whether buying in West Yorkshire or elsewhere, you should be aware that, searches cover solely legal considerations.


We have found an abundance of very helpful manuals all about do it yourself conveyancing for example Conveyancing Handbook by Frances Silverman. Do I really have to use property lawyer in West Yorkshire ?


Technically speaking there are no arguments why a buyer shouldn't handle the legal and technical work without assistance. The truth is however that a lawyer typically handles a long list of skilled tasks such as approving enquiries on searches and checking that the contract package is in order some of which really need a qualified professional.

In any event however, solicitors firms are required by the SRA to carry insurance to insulate you in the event of losses you encounter.


Could manganese contaminate land in West Yorkshire?


Though the dangers are usually minor, if significant harm could be caused to people or protected species by the contamination, it is likely to be labelled contaminated land. Data on many contaminants, such as disinfection by-products and water contaminants such as petrol, will be included in an environmental search.


Which property conveyancing searches should the conveyancing solicitor in West Yorkshire apply for on a West Yorkshire home?


The standard procedure will be to obtain these searches - Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW), Environmental, Tin Search and Clay Search as well as any specific local West Yorkshire searches for instance Land charge Searches.


How do I bypass paying stamp duty tax?


Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) commonly must be paid for residential property over £125,000. We do not recommend any form of stamp duty mitigation scheme, because these schemes are highly expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later and the total stamp duty, with interest, will be due.
