I need affordable conveyancing. What should be watch out for?

The lack of clarity surrounding this topic catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote cheap conveyancing, but extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions which property buyers and sellers may have not read carefully Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

As a consequence of the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since on record I am questioning if flood risk searches won't be sufficient?

A.

Property conveyancing searches handled by a lawyer in Beccles should also include a far more rigorous flood search if required.

Q.

What factors assist with organising a fast conveyancing transaction?

Contacting a proactive, diligent property lawyer is the key to a fast conveyancing transaction. There are a range of things you, as the buyer, could do to speed up the legal work. These include:

  • clarifying your mortgage lender's requirements
  • pushing the property lawyer to begin enquiries as soon as possible
  • quickly answering your property lawyer's questions (by email if possible)

Q.

Does my assigned Beccles property lawyer tell me about the cost of council tax for a Band D property before completing on the purchase?

A.

The lawyer will liaise with the council to enquire about the up to date council tax band and rates, which will then be included in the title report.

Will I need a chancel search? We are buying near a rectory in Beccles.

A.

There are thousands of ecclesiastical parishes across England and Wales. Property owners within some of these may be required to pay for the repair of a local church. Several sources are used to determine liability in Beccles, including tithe documents. Beccles churches where a chancel search may be necessary include St Luke and St Michael the Archangel.

Q.

Please advise how to avoid paying for SDLT rates?

A.

SDLT is payable for purchases valued at over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty mitigation scheme should be treated with extreme caution. Such schemes are highly expensive and very risky.
