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.

What kind of environmental searches about the risk and history of floods at Dorset will the conveyancer in Charmouth be able to apply for on a Regency property I am buying?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor will conduct environmental searches that should include Charmouth flood risk area data.

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

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.

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.

Is it recommended that I get a chancel liability search? We are buying in Charmouth.

A.

Owners of property near to local churches are expected to contribute towards the cost of repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further. Church properties in the local area where a chancel search may be necessary include St Andrew.

Q.

Are there any areas of conservation in Charmouth?

A.

These areas protect areas defined as being of historical merit. Your conveyancing lawyer will advise further and discuss the relevant responsibilities, regarding specific conservation areas in Charmouth.

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.
