Q.

We need to find a solicitors firm that offers cheap conveyancing. What do we need to check for?

A.

This catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote supposedly cheap conveyancing, however extra fees will be included in the terms and conditions. Busy, stressed home owners ignore these terms at their peril. Any charges ought to be fair and reasonable. They only apply to matters if the conveyancer is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

A.

Policies and legislation are in place to control pollution, waste, water and chemical contamination. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Alnmouth, including local authorities.

Q.

Can we circumvent paying out for stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty is payable on homes over 125,000 pounds. We firmly advise against any form of stamp duty scheme. These schemes are highly expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed imposing penalties and investigating all your tax matters.

Q.

We are buying a restored chapel in Mitford. Do we need a chancel search?

A.

The Alnmouth conveyancing solicitor should confirm that a chancel search is ordered. In Alnmouth's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on owners of a house where parish councils may have not done so in the past, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

What can impact land in Alnmouth, and should they be a problem?

A.

Residential property may have been contaminated by a broad range of natural causes and human activities, and an environmental search should reveal whether a home may be affected by contaminants like shallow mining and military land.

Q.

I have found a plethora of useful books on the subject of do it yourself conveyancing. Do I actually need to use a property lawyer in Alnmouth ?

A.

Legally speaking there is absolutely no argument at all why you cannot do the legal work without assistance. In reality however, a conveyancer in Alnmouth typically handles a huge array of assignments e.g. chasing completion statements and dealing with requisition on os1 most of which require a qualified professional.

Q.

How early is it wise to get a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

In simple terms, as soon as possible, as there are a number of tasks that may be performed straight away. Instructing your solicitor sooner can reduce any chance of the sale or purchase aborting.

Q.

Will the property report compiled by the conveyancing solicitor in Alnmouth give information the amount of council tax on a Band F flat prior to completion?

A.

The lawyer will consult with the governing local authority to ascertain the correct council tax band and rates, which will be added to the conveyancer's title report. Correct charges for homes in Alnmouth are detailed at the local authority site.
