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.

The estate agent has offered a property solicitor whom they usually use. Will it be cheaper to use them?

A.

If you choose a conveyancer referred through this route, you may have the benefit of the agent's willingness to pressure a solicitor to wrap up the process as soon as possible, however, these referrals should be thoroughly considered, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

What will the Cinderford conveyancing solicitor advise if the house we are buying is inside a conservation are in Forest of Dean council and turns out to have ill-suited new windows installed?

A.

Forest of Dean planning authority LLC1 searches carried out by your Cinderford property lawyer during the legal process should determine if the property is in a designated conservation area and evidence of council approval for changes to the property will be asked for.

Q.

Where can I find out if the designated conservation area is not being properly maintained?

A.

Conservation areas are set up by the local authority (Forest of Dean) who preside over everything from including things like poorly maintained pavements, side extensions and private spaces. English Heritage, a government body, have put together a list of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in Cinderford and throughout England.

Q.

Will the Cinderford lawyer order any searches on the Gloucestershire period semi-detached cottage I am intending to buy?

A.

Normal procedure will be to get these searches - Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search as well as any specific local searches, like a Subsidence report.

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.

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.

We are shortly going to move out of our terraced house on the outskirts of Cinderford into our new flat in Bourton on the Water , what is the best point to choose a removal company?

A.

The most sensible course of action is for home movers to avoid arranging removals until all parties have formalised an absolute home moving date which happens once signing of contracts. The majority of house removals firms often charge a change of date amount .
