Moving into a property in Benson? Useful local travel and services facts and figures ;

Q.

Benson area info

A.

Wallingford St Peter Churches Conservation Trust and Newnham Murren St Mary Churches Conservation Trust are around Benson.

The most convenient hospital for Benson is Wallingford Community.

Q.

I need to find a property lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing in Benson. Can you assist?

A.

Confusion over this topic catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional charges will be included in the terms and conditions. Any additional charges found in terms of engagement should be fair and clearly defined. Your quote should list third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.

Q.

For a fast completion on the purchase of a £145,000 property, how could we speed up our conveyancing process?

A.

Finding a proactive, diligent solicitor is essential to a fast conveyancing transaction. When selecting a solicitor, you should ask the following: Do they offer 'instant' online quotes? Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication? Do they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?

Q.

How can we determine stamp duty, and what should it be on a £581000 Benson house?

The Stamp Duty you pay is calculated based on the purchase price. On a £581000 house, stamp duty will be £23240.*

*Correct as of 12/03/2013

Q.

In the next few we are expecting to be finally moving out of our period home just outside Benson to a property in Witney , at what stage to book a removal company?

A.

Most property lawyers usually suggest that home vendors put off arranging removals until after exchange of contracts because typically an absolute moving date will not have been firmed up. Typically house removals firms will impose a rearrangement fine . For more information speak to Albatross Express, 4 Saxon Court, Benson, Wallingford, OX10 6RZ on 01491 824772.

Q.

Do we need a building survey for this Benson property purchase?

A.

We recommend that all purchasers arrange a building survey if you are intending to buy in Benson. It is a fact that there are a wide range of defects which can affect a property, that will not be addressed during the conveyancing process, including blocked drains or roof spread.

Q.

Our lender will be Prudential Banking - is there anything I need to know?

A.

Some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, potentially creating greater conveyancing costs for house purchasers. Homeward Legal, however, will act for many lenders.

Q.

What do fixtures and fittings include?

A.

Generally speaking, fixtures are fixed items, such as the boiler to the property and cannot be easily removed and fixtures are free-standing items, such as electric or gas fires. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

How early should I arrange a conveyancer to act for us?

A.

Whether buying or selling, the sooner the better, as the legal work can begin very early in the process. Some sources suggest waiting before instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.
