Q.

I need the cheapest conveyancing quote. What are the risks?

A.

Lack of clarity over this issue catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing, however extra charges can inflate your final invoice.

Q.

Will we need a home surveyor to check for issues affecting this property purchase?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors heavily advise that home buyers arrange a home surveyor to undertake a survey. It is a fact that there are a wide range of defects which affect a property, such as cracks around door frames or dry rot, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

Which mortgage lenders in Baschurch do you work with?

A.

Homeward Legal have worked with all the major lenders serving Baschurch home purchasers. Baschurch lenders and mortgage specialists include Kingsland Financial, 1 Quarry Pl, Shrewsbury, SY1 1JN, Specialist Mortgage Funding, 10/10/Sundorne Avenue, Shrewsbury, SY1 4JN, and Bee Mortgages Ltd, Wyle Cop Chambers/77 Wyle Cop, Shrewsbury, SY1 1UT. The lawyer handling the work for your Baschurch purchase or sale can give more detail.

Q.

What will the council tax cost on a investment Band H maisonette in Baschurch?

A.

The appropriate band will in most cases be highlighted within the conveyancing report on title, and by the local authority. The latest council tax rates for homes in Baschurch are tabled at the Shropshire council site. At the time of writing on 17 February 2013 rates are:

  • Band A - £1,000.00
  • Band B - £1,167.00
  • Band C - £1,333.00
  • Band D - £1,500.00
  • Band E - £1,833.00
  • Band F - £2,167.00
  • Band G - £2,500.00
  • Band H - £3,000.00

Q.

Conveyancing solicitors in Baschurch order some searches if instructed by a home purchaser - which actual searches?

A.

If taking out a mortgage a mortgage lender requires you to these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search and Environmental, and occasionally special local Baschurch searches for example Contaminated land Search.

Q.

Can I bypass paying for stamp duty tax?

A.

We do not recommend clients risk any stamp duty reduction. These schemes are highly expensive and very risky. There have been certain official schemes, however, such as disadvantaged area relief.

Q.

We are buying on a Baschurch former industrial site. Is the topsoil possibly contaminated?

A.

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Baschurch, but where substances causing significant pollution of surface waters or groundwater are found the land will be defined as 'contaminated'. Metal contamination of soil in Baschurch is more likely to occur near former industrial sites. Data on other contaminants, like groundwater contamination and hazardous gases, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Might the fees for our conveyancing cover any hidden costs?

A.

Homeward Legal never charge any hidden fees to buy or sell a property. Rarely, a significant piece of extra work is required, . You will be made aware of any such fees before they are incurred.
