How do we find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?


Both high-street and online property lawyers promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms, left unregarded by busy homeowners Any extra costs included in the terms should be reasonable and only apply to matters if the conveyancer is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


What will a Whitchurch property solicitor do when the property we are buying is located in a registered conservation area and has out of place new windows installed?


Your property lawyer is required to verify if the property is inside a designated conservation area and whether any alterations have appropriate consents from the Basingstoke and Deane authority.Should no authority consents be supplied your conveyancing solicitor will recommend all options such as seeking an indemnity insurance or getting retrospective permission from the council.


How can the lawyer in Whitchurch advise us on the risk of a flood to properties in Whitchurch?

A conveyancer applies for formal conveyancing searches, which include Whitchurch area flood risk data.


Should we be worried about 'fixtures and fittings'?


Mainly, there is not a absolute definition of fixtures and fittings. This is an issue which is regularly overlooked, making it essential that the list of fixtures and fittings to be sold with the property is agreed early.


Can you advise how we defer paying stamp duty on a house?


Stamp duty reduction should not be considered when purchasing in Whitchurch. These schemes are highly expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed meaning that the full stamp duty amount will be payable, with potential fines.


What amount of time does conveyancing legal work take?


The number of weeks required to transact property is not wholly predictable. This is dependent on a number of considerations. These could include where a party does not quickly respond an enquiry. The national average is 8 to 12 weeks, but we work towards four to six weeks, wherever possible.


What environmental concerns can contaminate land in Whitchurch. Are these comprehensively investigated?


Land is contaminated by many environmental factors, like coal mining and hazardous substances in the ground. An environmental search will give more detail. Heathgates Landfill Site, Lacon Street, Shropshire, SY13 2EP is one such potential cause of contamination in Whitchurch.


I am purchasing a house, do we need 'conveyancing searches'?


These searches are queries performed in the interest of the purchaser, which may include a coal mining search. Whitchurch purchasers should know that, these searches refer specifically to the legal aspects of the purchase.
