Q.

On the purchase of a £288,000 property, what will be the fees? We are looking for discount conveyancing in Broughton Astley.

A.

Many online and high street firms advertise cheap conveyancing. Often extra charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms which unwary homeowners fail to check. Any extra costs found in the small print should be reasonable and clear and be applicable if the conveyancer is required to complete extra work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements should be included on a conveyancing quote

Q.

What will a Broughton Astley property solicitor advise if the property we are buying is situated in a Blaby council conservation area which has an un-consented doors installed?

A.

The local authority search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) carried out by your solicitor during the legal process will find out if the property is within a designated conservation area and any evidence of authorisation for alterations will be asked for.

Q.

How can we determine Stamp Duty Land Tax?

A.

The rate of stamp duty you will owe will depend on the value of the property. It is £14820 on a £494000 residential property (accurate March 2013).

Q.

When in the conveyancing process is it appropriate to speak to a solicitor?

A.

The straightforward answer is, earlier is preferable. The legal work can then begin very early in the process. Promptly

instructing a firm for your Broughton Astley transaction for a sale enables relevant information can be sourced sooner (this is particularly true for leasehold properties), whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.

Q.

How will the Broughton Astley conveyancing solicitor report on the risk of local flooding to properties in Broughton Astley on an Edwardian property I am going to purchase?

A.

An experienced conveyancing solicitor applies for standard conveyancing searches that will include Broughton Astley flood risk area data information. In certain cases the Broughton Astley property lawyer might possibly recommend a significantly more involved search.

Q.

Which Broughton Astley mortgage lenders do you work with?

A.

Most lenders in Broughton Astley are on our Broughton Astley solicitors' panel. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Hinckley & Rugby Building Society, 1a Green Rd, Broughton Astley, Leicester, LE9 6RA. Your solicitor should be able to carry out any relevant lender-imposed searches or checks.

Q.

Doing ones own conveyancing without the help of a Broughton Astley conveyancing solicitor appears to be becoming possible as a seller of a maisonette. Would it actually be prudent ?

A.

There is no argument why a home buyer cant undertake the greater majority of the conveyancing without lawyer in Broughton Astley.

That said, a Broughton Astley property solicitor carries out a large number of jobs ranging from approving completion statements or the Land Registry formalities which require experience.

Essentially DIY conveyancers do not have appropriate insurance cover that every solicitors must be covered by.

Q.

As a result of the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands I am concerned that conveyancing searches may not be exacting enough?

A.

Your Broughton Astley property solicitor will advise you to include conveyancing and environmental searches if the initial search establishes a Broughton Astley flooding risk.

You may be able to speak to a next door neighbour for extra confidence.
