Q.

How do we identify a genuinely cheap fee? We are trying to find a discount conveyancing estimate in Darwen.

A.

Many online and high street firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs are often hiding in the small print. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Can you state how to avoid paying out for stamp duty land tax?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is payable on houses over 125,000 pounds. We do not recommend any stamp duty reduction scheme. Such schemes are expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed .

Q.

We are buying on a brownfield land. Is the soil likely to remain contaminated by waste minerals like cadmium (Cd)?

A.

Given the history of industry and agriculture in parts of Darwen, soil contamination is inescapable. Data on many contaminants, such as industrial storage, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

I have been reading about doing ones own conveyancing when buying a flat , Might it be reasonable to take care of the legal side myself?

It can possible for you to take care of the legal work yourself. In reality however, a lawyer typically handles a huge number of tasks ranging from chasing deeds and checking that the contract package is in order most of which need training.

AT any rate solicitors firms are required by the SRA to get the applicable insurance cover to safeguard you from any negligence.

Q.

Should we get a Darwen house surveyor to check for defects affecting the property we plan to buy?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors suggest that you arrange a home surveyor. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of defects that affect a property, such as failed double glazing and chimney defects.

Q.

In a few weeks I am intending to be finally moving out of our terraced building in Darwen into our new house in Common Edge , when to instruct a removals firm?

A.

Most property lawyers will advocate that home vendors delay until such time as contracts have exchanged as in all probability an agreed moving date wont have been firmed up.
