Q.

How do I find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Bramley?

A.

Many firms purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, but extra charges will be included in the terms of engagement. Busy, stressed buyers and sellers ignore these terms at their peril. Any disbursements should also be included on any quote for conveyancing in Bramley

Q.

What type of investigation about the risk and history of floods in the Surrey area will my Bramley conveyancing solicitor give details on?

A.

A vital step in the legal due diligence process of purchasing a property involves a solicitor making an application for property environmental searches that go in some details on the Bramley flood risk area.

Q.

How is stamp duty tax worked out?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is dependent on a small range of considerations, including the home's value. It will be £9000 on a £300000 home.

Q.

Which factors can impact land in Bramley, and should they be a concern?

A.

Property will be contaminated by a range of environmental factors. Contaminants including proximity to landfill sites should be reported on during conveyancing searches. Sands Quarry, Shere Road, Surrey, GU5 9BW is one such potential source of contamination.

Q.

The property being purchased is on a former industrial site. Is iron (Fe) topsoil contamination likely?

A.

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Bramley, but an plot will be marked as 'contaminated land' if the risk to human life is unacceptable. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including groundwater contamination and insecticides.

Q.

Why does Bramley sale conveyancing be so delayed?

A.

The legal work required to buy or sell a property may suffer setbacks. Homeward Legal work hard to minimise their effect whenever possible by driving the sale or purchase forward. Common delays may include the length of time it takes for the managing agent or landlord to respond to queries.

Q.

We are buying a converted chapel in Alford. Will a chancel search be required?

A.

A property solicitor might recommend that a chancel search is ordered. In older areas of Bramley, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have spared previous owners or tenants. For property in the parish of Alford, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Our agent has offered a law firm that they have used before. Will it be more cost-effective to use them?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will usually recommend a conveyancer, however, these referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as an agent may decide to recommend whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the law firm with the best reputation.
