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.

Would getting a survey be advisable when purchasing a house or flat, regardless of its age?

A.

We firmly recommend that home buyers in Charmouth instruct a RICS surveyor if you are planning to buy in Charmouth. There can be a wide range of defects which have a negative impact on a property, which will not be covered by the legal work, such as cavity wall tie failure.

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.

Q.

We plan to purchase a chapel in the parish of Swanage. Should we get a chancel search?

A.

A conveyancing lawyer should confirm that a chancel search be taken out. Chancel repair dues can be collected on owners of a home where parish councils may have spared previous owners or tenants.

Q.

The estate agent has offered a conveyancing which they often use. Is it a good idea to use them?

A.

Agent recommendations are a common way to find a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

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.

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 factors will contaminate land in Charmouth, and are they checked for thoroughly?

A.

A wide range of contaminants caused by natural causes and human activities may potentially impair residential property in Charmouth . Issues including radioactive substances in the region will be investigated during the conveyancing process.
