Grantham & District is a nearby hospital for Bottesford.

Q.

How do I find the best rates for conveyancing in Bottesford for a £244,000 residence?

A.

Many firms purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', however extra charges are frequently hidden in the small print, left unregarded by busy sellers and buyers Additional charges listed in the terms needs to be reasonable and clear and be applicable solely where the lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Would you advise taking steps to get out of paying for SDLT?

A.

Homeward Legal strongly advise against any form of stamp duty scheme, as such schemes are expensive and often likely to fail. There have been several legitimate initiatives, however, such as disadvantaged area relief. A conveyancing solicitor should confirm whether you are eligible.

Q.

Can Bottesford former industrial site topsoil still be contaminated?

A.

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Bottesford, but contaminated land areas are labelled as such if the danger to the environment is judged to be too great. Data on many contaminants, such as groundwater contaminants like sewage, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Would you advise that we get a chancel search if I am buying a house next to a parson's close in Bottesford?

A.

Where land in Bottesford was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to cover the cost of repairs to an old church building. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. A conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise further. Bottesford churches include St Mary the Virgin.

Q.

We plan to buy a home in Elston. Do we need a chancel search?

A.

Your solicitor might recommend a chancel search, whichever parish in which the building being purchased is found. In Bottesford's much older areas, chancel repair can be imposed on owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. For property in the parish of Elston, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

When do you need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor to act on our purchase?

A.

If you choose a solicitor with 'no move, no fee' protection, instructing as early as possible is better, as the legal work can start very early in the process. Some groups advocate postponing instruction until an offer is accepted, but opting to delay can jeopardise your sale or purchase.

Q.

Does my Bottesford lawyer apply for any conveyancing searches on the Lincolnshire Sixties detached flat I want to buy?

A.

If taking out a mortgage a mortgage lender insist that particular searches, including the following Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environment Search, as well as any specific local Bottesford searches e.g. a Limestone Search.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Bottesford?

A.

Bottesford is located in North Lincolnshire Council, Pittwood House, Ashby Road, Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire, DN16 1AB, phone: 01724 296 296
