What are the best conveyancing rates for a 727,000 house?


Many homeowners seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many firms purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra charges may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any extra fees found in the terms should be fair and reasonable. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.


I am buying in Brampton, and have had a conveyancing quote from you. Will there be any additional costs?


We will not charge any hidden fees to transact a property. If you are comparing quotes, consider that some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.


How early do I need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor to act on our sale?


With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, instructing as early as possible is better, as conveyancing involves various tasks which may be performed straight away. Instructing a conveyancing firm to handle your Brampton conveyancing early can reduce any chance of the transaction aborting.


Do I need a house survey?

Homeward Legal strongly advise that the majority of buyers arrange a home surveyor to perform a survey. It is a fact that there are a wide range of issues which will impact a property, which are not included in your mortgage lender's valuation. These include severe weathering and poor drainage.


Could Brampton topsoil be contaminated by molybdenum?


There are regulations in place to control topsoil contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as trichloroethylene and groundwater contamination, will be included in an environmental search.


Will my Brampton property solicitor tell me about the cost of the council tax for a Band D house before completion?


A solicitor will consult with the Carlisle local authority to enquire about the latest council tax band and rates, which will subsequently be detailed in the title report. Council tax charges for residents of Brampton are listed online at the Carlisle council website. At the time of authoring, 07 June 2012, the rates are:

  • Band A - £1,046.00
  • Band B - £1,220.00
  • Band C - £1,394.00

  • Band E - £1,917.00
  • Band F - £2,266.00
  • Band G - £2,614.00

Which conveyancing searches does my conveyancing solicitor in Brampton carry out for a Brampton flat?


The standard legal protocol will be to obtain the following Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW), Environmental and Gypsum Mining Search and perhaps specific local searches, which might include Flood Risk search.


Do I need to get a chancel search if I am buying in Brampton close by priory land?


Chancel repair liability can require Brampton home owners to fund repairs to nearby church property. A chancel search is used to check that such a liability exists. Your solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Church properties in the area include St Mark, St Martin's, St Mary Magdalene and St Peter.
