Q.

How do I get a cheap solicitor in Charmouth to sell a home?

A.

Many solicitors offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra fees may increase your solicitor's invoice. Extra costs should be fair and reasonable and be applicable if your lawyer must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

We need to complete this leasehold property purchase as soon as possible, how do we get a fast conveyancing transaction?

A.

Many buyers will, correctly, argue that finding a proactive and experienced lawyer is essential to a faster move. When choosing a lawyer, consider these points: Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed. How soon will they order searches? Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?

Q.

We are buying on a recently-developed brownfield site. Is molybdenum (Mo) top-soil contamination likely?

A.

There are considerable regulations in order to limit soil contamination. Also considering issues such as groundwater contaminants like petrol, contaminants affecting Charmouth property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

Can you state how to get out of paying for SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty reduction scheme should not be considered, as such schemes are often uneconomical and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed and the total stamp duty tax may be payable, along with interest and penalties.

Q.

What specific property will the Charmouth lawyer do when instructed on a Charmouth building?

A.

The routine legal procedure will be to get Local Authority (council), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environmental, Tin Mining Search and China Search as well as any unique particular such as Bankruptcy Search (K16).

Q.

Will a property report compiled by the solicitor in Charmouth give details about the relevant rates of council tax for a Band G maisonette prior to exchange of contracts?

A.

The property solicitor will contact the West Dorset local authority to ascertain the latest council tax rates, which should then be included in the conveyancer's title report. Council tax charges for Charmouth are published on the West Dorset council website. At the time of authoring (08 December 2012) rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £1,069.00
  • Band B - £1,247.00
  • Band C - £1,425.00
  • Band D - £1,604.00
  • Band E - £1,960.00
  • Band F - £2,316.00
  • Band G - £2,673.00
  • Band H - £3,207.00

Q.

What can a Charmouth property lawyer recommend if the home I hope to buy is in a conservation area in West Dorset planning authority which has inappropriate satellite dishes fitted?

A.

The local authority enquiries conducted by a solicitor during the conveyancing process should determine the existence of the appropriate council approval for modifications to the property.

Q.

Doing ones own conveyancing without the help of a Charmouth lawyer appears to be becoming possible when buying a maisonette , but would it be practicable ?

A.

Hypothetically there are no arguments why you should not carry out the majority of the conveyancing without assistance.

In reality however, a conveyancing solicitor in Charmouth carries out a large number of roles from such as chasing lender for comments on issues raised and locating planning docs which really need a skilled professional.
