Q.

What will the overall charge be on the sale of a £236,000 home? We are trying to find a discount conveyancing quote in Chester.

A.

Many online and high street solicitors purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional charges are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Your Chester conveyancing quote should also state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid. Additional charges should be fair and clearly defined. They be applicable if your conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

I am buying in Chester. How can we check if the residence is in a conservation area?

A.

Locales deemed to be of 'special architectural and historic interest', such as 19th century suburbs, will be defined as conservation areas. Conservation areas in Chester include Marston (Lion Salt Works) Revised. You may wish to contact the local authority for more information, but your property solicitor will address this during the conveyancing process.

Q.

The web is full of an increasing number very helpful documents all about doing your own legal work. Do I actually want to use a conveyancer in Chester ?

Theoretically there is no argument at all why you cant opt to conduct majority of the legal work without assistance. In reality however, a Chester property solicitor carries out a large number of activities such as approving completion statements and locating planning docs many of which really need experience.

Q.

Which areas of Chester are suitable for stamp duty relief?

A.

The most recent evaluation of the state of Chesters conservation areas is chronicled by English Heritage and the following details are currently available at their site: Marston (Lion Salt Works) Revised is noted as very bad with medium vulnerability and condition improving. Tel: 01244 973160 for more information.

Q.

How does a conveyancing solicitor in Chester investigate the risk and history of local flooding in the Chester area for a Regency maisonette we are intending to buy?

A.

A more thorough search, such as the Landmark search, could possibly be advised by your lawyer in Chester if the results of the initial conveyancing searches reveal a risk of flooding.
