Q.

I need a low cost conveyancing quote in Alton. What do I need to check for?

A.

Confusion over this matter catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra costs will be included in the terms. Busy, stressed homeowners ignore these terms at their peril. Additional costs which are listed in terms of engagement should be reasonable and only apply to matters if your conveyancer is required to complete unexpected extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

What average time does it take my designated conveyancing solicitor to conclude the conveyancing formalities on the top floor of period property we are intending to buy?

A.

Q.

The estate agent we are using in Aylesbury has put forward a conveyancing solicitor who they generally use. Is it a good idea to instruct them?

A.

Agent referrals are a not uncommon way for home buyers to find a solicitor, however, such referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as the agent may recommend the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

We plan to complete on around 28th February. What will be worked out for stamp duty?

A.

Yes, Phase 1 of HS2 will be an issue in a number of homes in Aylesbury's local authority. Aylesbury Properties within 200m of the line will be identified during a search, but disruption, noise and vibration pollution may affect a much wider area.

Q.

Will we need to get a chancel search? I am buying in Alton.

A.

Some owners in Alton can be required to subsidise upkeep of older church buildings. Some names or words such as 'rectory' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Alton churches where chancel liability may apply include All Saints, S.Peter, St Lawrence and St Peter, Beech.
