Q.

How do we get fixed rate conveyancing in Cinderford?

A.

This affects many sellers and buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many solicitors purport to offer cheap conveyancing. However additional charges may increase the final bill. Charges listed in terms of engagement should be reasonable. They only apply in cases where the solicitor must complete work beyond standard conveyancing , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

Does your company carry out the conveyancing for property auction properties in Cinderford?

A.

Our company is highly knowledgeable with bidders at auction. It is not uncommon for unusual auction lots are included in property auctions and these demand increased inquiries before completion. We therefore strongly recommend that purchasers formally instruct a fast lawyer in advance of the day of the auction for a detailed report of the legal papers for the lot. Subsequently, following the auction your experienced lawyer is thoroughly able to concentrate on concluding the transaction in as short a time frame as usually required .

Q.

As a consequence of the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England we are thinking that flood searches won't be exacting enough?

A.

The Cinderford lawyer will carry out property conveyancing searches (Landmark database search) if the first search establishes a any kind of Cinderford flooding risk.

Sometimes buyers also contact a local resident for some additional comfort.

Q.

What do fixtures and fittings refer to?

A.

There is not a strict definition of fixtures and fittings, which can often lead to conflict post-completion. Conveyancing solicitors recommend a formal fixtures and fittings form to avoid later disagreements and will confirm which items are included in the sale.

Q.

Our mortgage lender is OneSavings - what do I need to check?

A.

Purchasers should be aware that a small number of lenders have limited the firms who can act for them. This can mean increased legal costs for purchasers. Homeward Legal, fortunately, will act for most lenders.

Q.

Please state how to avoid paying stamp duty to HM Revenue?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is payable for home purchases over £125,000. We do not recommend any stamp duty mitigation. These schemes are expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later and the total stamp duty tax may be payable, along with interest and penalties. There have been a range of official schemes, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers, and your solicitor will advise if these may apply.

Q.

Will the Cinderford lawyer tell me about the amount to be paid of council tax on a Band H maisonette before completion?

A.

Your homes appropriate council tax band should conventionally be highlighted as part of the report on title, and by the local authority. Up-to-date rates for properties in Cinderford are detailed on the Forest of Dean council website. On, 28 July 2012, the different rates are:

  • Band A - £1,006.00
  • Band B - £1,174.00
  • Band C - £1,342.00
  • Band D - £1,509.00
  • Band E - £1,845.00
  • Band F - £2,180.00
  • Band G - £2,516.00
  • Band H - £3,019.00

Q.

When do I need to speak to a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, the earlier in the process you can instruct a firm, the better. Prompt instruction of a solicitor could mitigate the chance of the transaction falling through.
