Q.

What are the best rates for conveyancing for a £70,000 property?

A.

Various firms offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Extra charges included in terms of engagement should be clearly defined. They be applicable if your conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

How do I protect my offer from gazumping?

A.

Gazumping happens when a property seller accepts an offer, only to reject it in favour of a better offer. There is almost always a chance of gazumping. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct your conveyancing solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer.

Q.

What will the Bedmond conveyancing lawyer do when the house we am buying is in a registered conservation area and has unsympathetic dormer windows installed?

A.

Your instructed property lawyer will verify whether your proposed purchase is within a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have the essential permissions. In the event that no appropriate

consents be in evidence your conveyancing solicitor will give you professional advice on the alternatives for example buying an indemnity insurance or obtaining retrospective consent from St Albans council.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a residential mid-terrace Band G property in Bedmond?

A.

The relevant band should in most cases be set out within the conveyancer's title report along with the local authority. Correct charges for residents of Bedmond are published at the St Albans council site. As of 23 February 2013 rates are:

  • Band A - £981.00
  • Band B - £1,145.00
  • Band C - £1,309.00
  • Band D - £1,472.00
  • Band E - £1,799.00
  • Band F - £2,126.00
  • Band G - £2,454.00
  • Band H - £2,944.00

Q.

How soon do you need to get a conveyancer to handle our sale?

A.

With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, the sooner the better. Some groups suggest waiting before instruction until an offer is accepted, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.

Q.

Environmental searches may be standard procedure but when one considers current events such as the fact that last year was second wettest year since 1920 are they still appropriate to establish enough about the Bedmond flood risk area?

A.

Flood searches conducted by a property lawyer in Bedmond will also include the far more detailed search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.

If you remain concerned you could attempt to visit a next door neighbour.

Q.

How is stamp duty calculated and how much do we need to budget for a £1055000 residential property?

A.

The Stamp Duty which will be owed is based on the purchase price of the property. For a property valued at £1055000, SDLT will be £52750.

Q.

Are any conservation areas in Bedmond likely to affect us?

A.

With over eight thousand affected areas in England, the regions around Bedmond will include numerous conservation areas. The advantages of these restrictions will include protection for trees and other flora, but they create additional maintenance and repair responsibilities. Your conveyancing lawyer will advise further.
