Q.

How do I get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Many conveyancers advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra charges are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers, eager to get underway.

Q.

Will the Cockermouth property lawyer inform me about the amount to be paid of the council tax on a Band G house before exchange of contracts?

A.

Your property lawyer will consult with the Allerdale local authority to find out the currently applicable council tax charges which should be written in the report on title. Correct rates for homes in Cockermouth are published online at the Allerdale local authority website. At the time of writing, 24 January 2013, rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £1,038.00
  • Band B - £1,211.00
  • Band C - £1,384.00
  • Band D - £1,557.00
  • Band E - £1,903.00
  • Band F - £2,249.00
  • Band G - £2,595.00
  • Band H - £3,114.00

Q.

If my family are purchasing next to a rectory in Cockermouth, should I get a chancel liability search?

A.

Property owners neighbouring specific local church buildings must contribute towards the cost of repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. Terms used in a property's name, like 'priory', may indicate chancel liability. A solicitor will be able to advise further. Cockermouth churches include All Saints and Christ Church.

Q.

What can conveyancing searches be?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches can vary greatly. They are charged 'at cost'.

Q.

Is contaminated land in Cockermouth a problem?

A.

Property will be contaminated by a broad range of environmental concerns, such as air pollution. An environmental search will give more information. Contamination in Cockermouth can be caused by local waste sites, such as Broughton Craggs Phase 2, Cumbria, CA13 0XS.

Q.

Are the any designated conservation areas in Cockermouth likely to affect us?

A.

Conservation areas indicate streets and neighbourhoods of historical or architectural value. Your lawyer will advise further, in regard to relevant conservation area restrictions in Cockermouth.

Q.

Do your property lawyers deal with the conveyancing for property auction properties in Cockermouth?

A.

All of our property conveyancers regularly do the legal conveyancing buyers at auction. Our auction team property solicitors have acted for many buyers at local Cockermouth auctions such as Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Sensible auction buyers know to get a good conveyancing firm as rapidly as they can for a title report of the sellers documents before the auction day itself.

Immediately following the day of bidding your experienced lawyer is thoroughly able to concentrate on concluding the legal side of things in the usual 28 days as usually required .

Q.

Having heard about the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England I am anxious that conveyancing searches (environmental) aren't exacting enough?

A.

Conveyancing searches handled by the Cockermouth lawyer will also include the far more informative search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.

If you remain still anxious you could attempt to get in touch with a local resident.
