Q.

On the purchase of a £420,000 residence, what will be the fees? We need an affordable conveyancing quote.

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors offer cheap conveyancing, but extra charges are often hiding in the terms of engagement, left unregarded by busy buyers Costs needs to be fair and be applicable solely where your conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Are there any conservation areas in Cheltenham?

A.

Locales deemed to be of architectural merit, such as stretches of canals, will be recorded as conservation areas. Your conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise further and address the impact buying in a conservation area may have, regarding specific conservation areas in Cheltenham.

Q.

Would the property's fixtures and fittings include items such as paintings, pictures and mirrors?

A.

There is not a strict definition of fixtures and fittings, leading to potential for frustration after a sale completes. Early agreement of a list of fixtures and fittings will avoid later disputes, stating what is included with the sale.

Q.

Can you advise how I defer paying stamp duty land tax?

A.

Stamp duty must be paid for home purchases priced at over one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. We strongly advise against any form of stamp duty mitigation scheme. These schemes are costly and

often likely to fail. There have been several government-sponsored schemes, on the other hand, such as for first-time buyers.

Q.

In about five weeks we are intending to be finally moving from our semi detached residence in Cheltenham into a flat in Cirencester what is the optimum stage to instruct a removal company?

A.

Most solicitors will suggest that home movers put off arranging removals until after exchange of contracts as commonly a moving date wont have been confirmed. The majority of firms will impose a late cancellation cost . Try G B Liners Ltd, Blaisdon Way, Cheltenham, GL51 0WH Phone: 01242 523785 or Alpine Light Haulage, 22 Albert Place, Cheltenham, GL52 2HW Tel: 01242 581373.

Q.

The internet is full of a multitude of very helpful documents going into great depth on how to do DIY conveyancing. Do we want to use a Cheltenham property solicitor ?

A.

Should you wish to try you can feasibly engage in the bulk of the legal process without engaging an instructed Cheltenham lawyer .

In reality however, a solicitor is familiar with a significant number of exercises including checking redemption statements or interpreting the lease most of which are better done by someone with adequate training.

Above all DIY conveyancers will not have suitable indemnity insurance that solicitors firms must carry.
