Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £599,000 home?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many sellers and buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many solicitors promote cheap conveyancing quotes, however extra charges may inflate your final invoice. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Would you recommend that we get a chancel search? We are buying in Crewe.

A.

Property owners near to local churches must contribute towards the cost of repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including maps of Crewe's parish boundaries. Ecclesiastical properties in the local area where a chancel search may be appropriate include All Saints & St Paul, Christ Church, St Andrew and St Barnabas.

Q.

Please suggest how to defer paying SDLT?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is generally due for property over £125,000. We do not recommend any form of stamp duty avoidance. Such schemes are highly expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later.

Q.

Which particular property searches conveyancing searches should a solicitor in Crewe get when carrying out the conveyancing for a Crewe property?

A.

The routine procedure will be to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW), Environmental and Cheshire Brine Search (Coal Authority), and possibly specific local searches, like a Coal and Brine.

Q.

How early do you need to instruct a solicitor?

A.

Simply, the sooner you instruct a firm, the better. Promptly instructing a solicitor for a sale means that information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer, whereas if you are buying you will the details of your Crewe solicitor ready when you make an offer.

Q.

We are buying a medieval barn conversion in the parish of Rostherne. Will a chancel search be necessary?

A.

A solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is ordered, irrespective of the parish in which the house being purchased is located. In older areas of Crewe, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the owners of a house where parish councils may have not done so in the past. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

What can contaminate land in Crewe?

A.

Numerous of contaminants caused by natural and human-influenced issues may affect residential property in Crewe . Issues including nearby waste management facilities should be reported on during conveyancing searches. Eardswick Lane, Minshull Vernon, CW1 4RQ, for example, may be a source of local contamination.

Q.

I am looking to be finally moving out of our period building in Crewe into a new house in Congleton . What is the right point to choose a home removal company?

A.

Most solicitors tend to advise that sellers wait organising removals until such time as formal exchange of contracts because the firm move date will not have been agreed. Depending on certain criteria home removals companies will charge a re booking fee
