Q.

How do we get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Various conveyancers claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. The disbursements to be paid should also be clearly stated on the quote. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

When do we need to find a conveyancer to handle our purchase?

A.

If you choose a conveyancing firm with 'no move, no fee' protection, the sooner you instruct a conveyancing firm, the better. Instructing a solicitor to handle your Billesdon conveyancing early for a purchase can mean that you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process.

Q.

As a result of the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands we are concerned that flood searches may not be exacting enough?

An experienced conveyancing solicitor in Billesdon will suggest that you also get detailed property conveyancing searches if the standard search determines a any kind of Billesdon flood risk.

You can get in touch with a neighbour for additional extra comfort.

Q.

The local agent has named the firm of solicitors. Will it be faster to use them?

A.

It is common for estate agents to suggest a conveyancer. However, if they are paid a referral fee, some agents may 'recommend' whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

Would the property's fixtures and fittings form list things like alarm systems?

A.

Mainly, fixtures are fixed items, such as bathroom suites to walls, floors or ceilings securely, whereas fixtures can be more easily removed. To avoid misunderstandings, a fixtures and fittings form should be agreed and will confirm which items are included in the sale.

Q.

Will the Billesdon solicitor report on the potential risk of floods to properties in Billesdon?

A.

A vital part of the legal process of buying a property involves the conveyancer applying for conveyancing searches that give you some details in relation to Billesdon flooding.

Q.

Where can I find out if the conservation area is neglected?

A.

Local Billesdon conservation areas are created by Harborough who manage everything from including things like rundown streets, satellite dishes and area development. English Heritage, a government body, have created a list of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in England.

Q.

How do you calculate stamp duty and what should we pay on a £398000 property?

A.

The Stamp Duty rate that is payable will rely on the property's value. It will be £11940 on a £398000 property.
