Q.

How do I find a cheap solicitor in Axminster for purchasing a new build home?

A.

Various conveyancers offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However extra charges may be added into small print. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. A quote should state the disbursements to be paid. Any extra costs should be fair. They be applicable if your lawyer is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Axminster?

A.

Axminster is located in East Devon District Council, Council Offices, Knowle, Sidmouth, Devon, EX10 8HL, phone: 01395 516 551

Q.

Does Axminster include any areas of conservation?

A.

These areas indicate local areas defined as being of historic or architectural significance. You may wish to contact the local authority for further information, but your lawyer will address this during the house-buying process.

Q.

Will the report on the property's title compiled by the Axminster conveyancing solicitor detail the amount of the council tax for a Band G building before exchange of contracts?

A.

A lawyer will contact the relevant West Dorset local council to discover the currently applicable council tax band and rates, which will subsequently be added to the conveyancer's title report. The latest tax rates for Axminster are tabled online at the West Dorset local authority website. On (28 June 2012) band rates are:

  • Band A - £1,069.00
    >
  • Band B - £1,247.00
  • Band C - £1,425.00
  • Band D - £1,604.00
  • Band E - £1,960.00
  • Band F - £2,316.00
  • Band G - £2,673.00
  • Band H - £3,207.00

Q.

When I am purchasing in Axminster, do I need to get a search for chancel liability?

A.

Chancel repair liability can require some residential property owners to contribute towards the cost of upkeep of churches. As a result of the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Axminster Church of England properties which may give rise to chancel liability include Holy Cross and St Mary.

Q.

Flood searches are standard procedure but when one considers recent flooding for instance the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England are they enough to find out sufficient information about the changing Axminster risk of flooding?

A.

Property conveyancing searches handled by a Axminster property lawyer will also include a far more thorough search (Landmark) if required.

You may be able to also speak to a neighbour of the property for additional local information.

Q.

Which factors will affect land in Axminster?

A.

Residential property in Axminster could be contaminated by a wide range of natural and human-influenced issues, like proximity to scrap yards or other land contamination. An environmental search will offer more detail. Contamination can be caused by Axminster waste sites, including Land/ Premises At, Devon, EX13 7BQ.

Q.

Is Homeward Legal experienced enough to complete fast property auction conveyancing in Axminster?

A.

We are auction specialists and regularly act for bidders at auction. Our highly qualified solicitors have been instructed by many bidders at regional residential property auctions that include Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Very often unusual auction lots e. g. thatched cottages are included in auctions and these necessitate extra exploration by the property lawyer Conveyancers therefore advocate buyers at auction to select a conveyancing firm in advance of the date of the auction to allow enough time for a thorough investigation. After the auction day itself your chosen property conveyancing lawyer is focused on concluding the purchase in 28 days as typically required .
