Q.

How do I find low cost conveyancing in Cirencester?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers and sellers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many solicitors promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra costs may increase your final invoice. Any disbursements must also be stated on the conveyancing quote. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

We are buying a converted flat within a Cirencester conservation area. How do we lay my hands on data in regards to the state of upkeep?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, now maintain records of the state of repair of conservation areas. Conservation areas in Cirencester are specified by the local Wiltshire planning authority, who administer everything from property boundaries to street posts.

Q.

For a fast completion on the purchase of a £ 934,000 house, what can we do to speed up our transaction?

A.

Essential to a faster move is to employing a communicative lawyer. Consider the following:

  • What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase.
  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?
  • Do they offer 'no move, no fee' protection? This can incentivise a faster transaction.
  • Q.

    How can we avoid being gazumped?

    A.

    Gazumping occurs when a property seller accepts an offer and then refuses it, opting for a second purchaser's offer. Gazumping may happen even months into a sale. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a danger of being gazumped. Instructing a fast, efficient solicitor as early as possible should help to mitigate this risk.

    Q.

    We are buying on a brownfield site. Could the topsoil be contaminated by industrial waste like nickel?

    A.

    Measures are taken across Cirencester and the region to identify and remediate soil contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as chlorinated solvents and groundwater contaminants like household chemicals, will be included in an environmental search.

    Q.

    Can you state how we circumvent paying for HMRC stamp duty?

    A.

    Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) usually must be paid for purchases sold for more than £125,000. Stamp duty avoidance should not be considered. Such schemes are often uneconomical and very risky.

    Q.

    How long should I expect it to take our conveyancing solicitor to exchange contracts the legal process on a terraced forties home we are thinking of buying in Cirencester?

    A.
