Q.

How do I find the best conveyancing rates in Alsager for a £789,000 property?

A.

Numerous firms offer cheap conveyancing, but additional charges can inflate your solicitor's invoice. Any extra charges should be clearly defined. They be applicable if the solicitor is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Please advise how to get out of paying stamp duty in Alsager?

A.

Homeward Legal do not recommend any stamp duty reduction scheme. These schemes are often uneconomical and often likely to fail. There have been several official schemes, however, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers.

Q.

For a lender, we have chosen Earl Shilton Building Society, what will I need to be aware of?

A.

Some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel. This can mean increased legal costs for house purchasers. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of all major lenders.

Q.

Do I need to get a building surveyor to check for issues affecting this property purchase?

A.

It is firmly advised that all purchasers in Alsager order a house survey. A range concerns will impact a property, which include roof damage or failed double glazing. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

Do you recommend that we get a chancel search? I am purchasing a Alsager house by a church constructed in the 12th Century.

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Alsager property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further. Alsager Church of England properties include Christ Church and St Mary Magdalene.

Q.

We are purchasing a £898000 Alsager residence, how is stamp duty rates calculated?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax will depend on the value of the house or flat. On a £898000 property, stamp duty will be £35920 (accurate March 2013).

Q.

As a result of the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England we are concerned that flood searches might not be sufficient?

A.

Food risk searches handled by a Alsager lawyer will also include a more thorough flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

You could always contact a next door neighbour for additional more confidence.

Q.

We are on a very small budget , Will doing the conveyancing myself without the assistance of a Alsager solicitor possibly save any cash?

A.

There are absolutely no arguments why you should not reasonably do the your own conveyancing without an expert conveyancing solicitor in Alsager. However, a conveyancing solicitor handles a large number of jobs including drafting contracts and handling retentions most of which really need adequate training. Fundamentally amateur lawyers will not be covered by applicable indemnity cover which practicing solicitors are required by the SRA to be covered by.
