Q.

How do we get a cheap solicitor quote to purchase a house?

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs will be included in the terms. Any extra charges needs to be reasonable. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

When in the process do you need to instruct a conveyancer?

A.

If you choose a solicitor with 'no move, no fee' protection, as soon as possible, as the legal work can begin straight away. Prompt instruction of a conveyancing firm to act for you on your Ackworth transaction for a purchase may mean that you will the details of your Ackworth solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers.

A.

We always allocate you to chosen solicitors who are selected because they work quickly and will always attempt to communicate from the beginning to the end of the chain . Moreover , our conveyancing property lawyers are picked because they rely on state of the art case and work flow systems and information technology systems leading to a completion on your home move swiftly.

Q.

We have requested a quote from you. Will we have to pay any additional fees?

A.

No. Our solicitors do not charge any extra, hidden fees for your conveyancing legal work. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, which they will not be bound to.

Q.

I have been reading about the conveyancing process when buying a house. Would it be foolhardy to take care of the all of the legal work on my own?

A.

There are absolutely no arguments why a home buyer cant opt to take care of the greater majority of the legal work without the help of Ackworth lawyer. The truth is however that a conveyancer typically handles a significant number of functions e.g. chasing replies to requisitions or assembling correct warranties some of which require experience. More importantly have a go conveyancers will be working without the correct indemnity insurance which every solicitors must take out.

Q.

Is contaminated land an issue in Ackworth?

A.

Residential property could be contaminated by a wide range of natural and human-influenced issues, and an environmental search should clarify to what extent a specific plot of land can be impacted by contaminants including infilled land and military land. Contamination in Ackworth can be caused by local waste sites, such as Field Lane Quarry, Field Lane, West Yorkshire, WF9 2EA.

Q.

Can I avoid paying stamp duty on the purchase?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) commonly must be paid on purchases priced at over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty avoidance is not recommended for purchases in Ackworth. These schemes are expensive and can be very unlikely to succeed. There have been certain legal initiatives, such as for first-time buyers.

Q.

What sort of local environmental searches into the risk of possible flooding in the Yorkshire, West Riding area will a property lawyer in Ackworth actually do?

A.

An essential step in the conveyancing protocol involves the conveyancing lawyer conducting conveyancing searches that set out details on the local Ackworth flood risk. At the time of writing (01/03/13) reports on the UK Environment Agency do not list any flood warnings in the Ackworth area.
