Q.

What are the best rates for conveyancing for a £685,000 home?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many property lawyers offer cheap conveyancing. However additional costs are frequently hidden in the terms. Fees should be fair. They be applicable if the lawyer is required to complete extra work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

My partner and I intend to sell our jointly owned house in a hurry at a nearby auction shortly, will you give us especially fast Botley solicitors ?

Q.

What do we need to calculate stamp duty rates, what should we budget for a £392000 property?

A.

The Stamp Duty owed is based on the valuation. For a property valued at £392000, the SDLT rate is £11760.

Q.

In 2 months we are hoping to move from our terraced house just outside Botley into a building in Benson , when to select a removals firm?

A.

We would tend to recommend that home vendors wait booking a removals company until after exchange of contracts because an agreed moving date will not have accepted by both parties. Some home removals firms often charge a rearrangement amount . For a local firm Adkins Removals, 43 Kennington Road, Kennington, Oxford, OX1 5PB Telephone: 01865 327933 or A Man With A Van, 70 West Way, Oxford, OX2 9JT on 01865 764569.

Q.

The estate agent has referred a solicitors firm. Must we use this solicitor?

A.

Estate agent recommendations are a common practice way for home buyers to find a solicitor. Such referrals should be considered carefully, as some agents may 'recommend' the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

If we are buying in the parish of Stoke Talmage, should we order a chancel search?

A.

A conveyancing lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. Chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on owners of a property where church councils have previously chosen not to do so. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Which Botley mortgage lenders do you work with?

A.

Most lenders in Botley are on our Botley solicitors' panel. Botley lenders and mortgage specialists include Inspire Financial Consultancy, A/29 Hurst La, Cumnor, Oxford, OX2 9PR. Your solicitor will be able to carry out any relevant lender-imposed searches or checks.

Q.

Is it important that I get a chancel search? We are purchasing a house in Botley.

A.

The judgement in Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. A chancel search checks that such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Botley churches include All Saints, Dean Court St Andrew and St Peter & St Paul.
