Q.

I need discount conveyancing. What should we check?

A.

Confusion over this issue catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional costs may increase the solicitor's invoice.

Q.

When should we speak to a conveyancer to act for us?

A.

In the majority of situations, the sooner the better, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks that can be performed very early in the process. Prompt instruction of a solicitor for a purchase can mean that you will the details of your Alvaston solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, relevant information can be sourced sooner (this is particularly true for leasehold properties).

Q.

Environmental searches may be conveyancing protocol but when one considers recent flooding e g the major flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands are they comfort enough to advise us sufficient information about the Alvaston flood risk area?

Your Alvaston conveyancing solicitor will include flood risk searches (Landmark database search) if the standard conveyancing searches flag up any kind of Alvaston flood risk.

For added history might be able to contact a neighbour or local resident.

Q.

May the conveyancing fees hide any additional fees?

A.

We do not hide any hidden extra costs for your legal work.

Q.

We are intending to buy a Victorian terraced house, should we have property searches done?

A.

These searches are a standardised pack of enquiries ordered by the purchaser's conveyancing solicitor, such as a chancel search, and consider legal facets of the purchase.

Q.

Is there something we can do to get out of paying out for SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty mitigation is not recommended for purchases in Alvaston. Such schemes are often uneconomical and often likely to fail.

Q.

How do I protect my offer from gazumping?

A.

Gazumping describes when an offer is, following agreement, later rejected by the seller, in preference to a greater offer. There is almost always a danger of being gazumped. Consider instructing a solicitor as early as possible to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.

Q.

What do we need to be aware of if we acquire a terraced house in a Derby planning authority conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the property legal includes making enquiries of South Derbyshire planning authority to confirm conservation area status and consent for any developments. .
