Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? I am looking for a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Chatteris.

A.

Lack of clarity over this topic catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional charges can inflate the solicitor's invoice. Any fees listed in the small print should be fair and reasonable. A quote should, in addition, define any disbursements.Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What does the Chatteris conveyancing lawyer do when the house we are planning to buy is inside a registered conservation area and has unbecoming removal of chimney stacks added?

A.

Fenland local authority enquiries carried out by your Chatteris property lawyer as part of the conveyancing should determine whether the property is in a conservation area and any evidence of consent for changes to the property will be required. If no appropriate permissions be in evidence your solicitor will recommend all options for example requesting an indemnity insurance policy or getting retrospective permission from the planning authority.

Q.

The estate agent has named the property lawyer. Will it be cheaper to instruct them?

A.

It is not uncommon for agents to refer one or more conveyancing firms. These referrals should be compared against alternatives, as an agent may choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

In a few months we are shortly going to move from our semi detached residence near Chatteris into a larger maisonette in Werrington . What is the right point to choose a removal company?

A.

We would tend to encourage home buyers and sellers delay arranging removals until the point where contracts have exchanged as in advance of this the firm date will not have been scheduled.

The greater majority of home removals companies add a rearrangement cost . For a local Cambridgeshire company A Better Move, 27 High St, Chatteris, PE16 6BQ Call: 01354 695698.

Q.

How can we check that a house is in a conservation area?

A.

Areas considered to be of 'special architectural and historic interest', like 19th century suburbs, may be registered as conservation areas. These restrictions can make repairs more costly or time-consuming, but the benefits will include an increase in local property values.

Q.

Can we hold off paying out for stamp duty on a residential property?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) commonly must be paid for purchases valued at over £125,000. Stamp duty reduction scheme should not be considered when purchasing in Chatteris, because these schemes are expensive and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.

Q.

How long should it take my designated lawyer to get through all of the legal formalities on a maisonette in a Victorian property?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere from one month to 3 months depending on a number of things for example the efficiency of the seller's property solicitor, or whether the property is leasehold, Freehold or share of freehold.

Our property lawyers are very proactive completing the process as quickly we can.

Q.

What individual searches should my Chatteris conveyancing solicitor get when instructed on a Chatteris home?

A.

The customary legal protocol will be to get Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search and, depending on certain criteria, area-specific searches, like a Utilities report.
