Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £728k property?

A.

Several firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing, but extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any extra fees listed in terms of engagement should be reasonable and be applicable if your solicitor must complete work beyond standard conveyancing for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

What are Braintree conveyancing searches?

A.

These searches are common set of queries performed in the interest of the purchaser, which may include a British waterways search. You need to be aware that, searches refer specifically to issues and defects relating to the property's legal title.

Q.

Do I need a building surveyor to inspect the home purchase in Braintree?

A.

Homeward Legal suggest that most purchasers instruct a home surveyor to carry out a survey. There are a wide range of defects which have a negative impact on a property, which will not be covered by the legal work. These include cracked roof tiles.

Q.

Do we need to instruct the law firm put forward by my local agent?

A.

Agent referrals are a commonplace path whereby buyers get a solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, some agents choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

For what reason does sale conveyancing legal work require months?

A.

The legal work involved in buying or selling Braintree property can be exposed to significant delays. We understand how unnecessarily stressful these delays can be and do our best to reduce the impact of these delays wherever it is feasible by pushing all parties involved.

Q.

Is it advisable that I get a chancel liability search if we are purchasing on the same street as a church furlong in Braintree?

A.

In Braintree, where land was once owned by a lay rectors, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards the cost of maintenance of a medieval church. Parochial Church Councils in Braintree must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Churches in the local area include Bocking St Mary the Virgin, Bocking St Peter, St Michael and St Paul.

Q.

How do you work out stamp duty?

A.

Stamp Duty will depend on the home's value. It is £38960 on a £974000 property.*

Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if I am buying in the parish of Colchester St Botolph?

A.

A conveyancer is likely to recommend a chancel search. Through some church councils have decided to charge chancel repairs on the owners, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not continue to be so. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
