Q.

How do we find a cheap solicitor in Addlestone to sell a flat?

A.

The confusion over this matter catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra charges may inflate your final bill. Extra fees needs to be clearly defined.

Q.

Myself and my partner are buying in Addlestone. Can we find out whether the property is in a conservation area?

A.

These areas pinpoint local areas of historical or architectural value. Your conveyancing solicitor will offer more information and discuss the relevant responsibilities.

Q.

The property being purchased is on a ex-industrial site. Could the topsoil be contaminated by industrial waste like manganese (Mn)?

A.

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Addlestone, but an area will only be identified as 'contaminated land' if the risk to human

life or the environment is deemed unacceptable. The local authority for Addlestone will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

Are purchasers regularly gazumped in Addlestone?

A.

Gazumping describes circumstances where one buyer's offer is rejected, following initial acceptance, by the seller, in preference to a greater offer. The danger of getting gazumped exists for almost any purchase. Instructing a conveyancing solicitor as early as possible to handle your transaction should help to reduce the likelihood of gazumping.

Q.

What do we need to know about fixtures and fittings?

A.

Chiefly, fixtures are 'fixed' to walls, floors or ceilings and cannot be easily removed, whereas fixtures are free-standing items, such as lamps or lightshades. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

For a house valued at £790000, how is stamp duty worked out?

A.

SDLT in Addlestone is calculated based on the purchase price of the home. On a £790000 residential property, stamp duty will be £31600.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing transaction on the purchase of a £687,000 house, how can we speed things up?

A.

Crucial to faster conveyancing is to instruct a proactive, diligent solicitor. When finding a suitable a solicitor, consider these questions: What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase. Do they order searches immediately? Was there a delay delivering a quote?

Q.

What kind of flood plain searches in connection with the risk and history of floods in the Surrey area will a property solicitor in Addlestone actually do?

A.

A vital step in the conveyancing procedure involves the conveyancer conducting conveyancing searches that offer specific information with respect to Addlestone flood risk. Furthermore, your property solicitor in Addlestone could possibly advise a more involved (e.g. Landmark) involved local flood risk search.
