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.

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.

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.

Do any areas of conservation in Botley have the potential to affect us?

A.

With over eight thousand conservation areas in England, the areas located near Botley include a number of areas of historic or architectural significance recorded as protected. Living in a conservation area can mean protection for trees and other flora, but the restrictions can result in the buyer inheriting liability of unauthorised changes. A conveyancing solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.

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.

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.

Do fixtures and fittings include things like sofas?

A.

Buyers will often be frustrated with the lack of formality around what fixtures and fittings are included. For many purchases, this is not considered, hence the importance of a complete fixtures and fittings form, agreed by both parties.

Q.

What can a Botley property lawyer advise if the flat we hope to purchase is inside a Oxford council conservation area which has unsympathetic window frames added?

A.

Oxford planning authority search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) conducted by a property lawyer as part of the conveyancing should identify the existence of the appropriate council approval for development to the property.
