Q.

We need the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Childwall. What should be watch out for?

A.

Many online and high street property lawyers purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional fees will be included in the terms and conditions, left unregarded by busy buyers Additional fees should be reasonable and be applicable solely where your solicitor must complete work beyond standard conveyancing on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Your Childwall conveyancing quote should also clearly state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.

Q.

Should we get a building survey for our house purchase?

A.

It is advised that home buyers order a house survey. There can be a range of defects that will impact a property, which are not included in your mortgage lender's valuation, including dry rot and settlement.

Q.

How long on average does it take the lawyer to handle all of the conveyancing work for the top floor of sixties building?

A.

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere from around a month and twelve weeks, which can be hampered by any number of issues for example the speed of the vendor's property solicitor, or the turnaround of searches. Our chosen solicitors are highly focused on pushing transactions through you moving home in as little time as possible.

Q.

Does our lawyer in Childwall tell me about the amount to be paid of council tax on a Band D property before exchange of contracts?

A.

A property lawyer will consult with the appropriate Liverpool local authority to discover the currently applicable council tax band and rates, which will then be added to the report on title. Up-to-date charges for residents of Childwall are set out in detail online at the Liverpool local authority site. At the time of writing (27 September 2012) the rates are:

Q.

How do I hold off paying stamp duty tax?

A.

Homeward Legal do not recommend any form of stamp duty mitigation scheme, as such schemes are often uneconomical and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself.

Q.

What factors can impact land in Childwall, and will they be properly investigated?

A.

Land in Childwall could be contaminated by a wide range of natural causes and human activities, and factors like waste disposal sites or hazardous and regulated installations will be investigated during the conveyancing process.

Q.

The owner has unfortunately added conspicuous stone cladding on the home in Childwall which I think might possibly violate nearby conservation area criteria

A.

Your instructed property solicitor will identify whether your new home is located within a designated conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have the essential consents from the local authority.

Q.

I am intending to buy in Childwall. Is it that important that 'conveyancing searches' are performed?

A.

Conveyancing searches are a commonly-used set of queries ordered by the purchaser's solicitor, which may include a gypsum search. Childwall purchasers should know that, searches consider facets affecting the legal title.
