Q.

How do we get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Many firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional fees are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement that unknowing buyers have not reviewed

Q.

Should I get a chancel search? We are purchasing on the same street as a 14th Century 'parson's close' in Castleton.

A.

Where land in Castleton was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards the cost of maintenance of a church in the area. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including parish archives. Churches in Castleton which may give rise to chancel liability include St Edmund, St Martin, St Mary Magdalene and St Michael & St George.

Q.

We are buying a 1950s maisonette in a Castleton conservation area, where does one find details in relation to the standard of repair of the area?

Local Castleton conservation areas are set up by Rochdale who are responsible for things like upkeep of paths to the prevention of neon signs. English Heritage, a government body, administer a list of the state of repair of conservation areas.

Q.

We have had a quote from you. Might we be expected to pay any extra fees after the move?

A.

No. Our solicitors never charge any additional fees. Be aware that some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

Q.

I am intending to buy a barn conversion in the parish of Castleton. Is a chancel search specified?

A.

A property lawyer could recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair can be imposed on the current owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

My local agent has referred a conveyancing solicitor whom they usually use. Do I need to instruct them?

A.

Many estate agents have arrangements with solicitors whereby they refer work to them. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, there is a risk that an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

How do we work out stamp duty rates in Castleton and how much do we need to budget for a £504000 house?

A.

The Stamp Duty which will be owed will rely on the house or flat's value. For a house purchased for £504000, SDLT is £20160.*

Q.

How does the conveyancing work require so much time and effort?

A.

The conveyancing process will occasionally take more time. We work hard to minimise the burden of these delays wherever reasonable by using fast search providers.
