Q.

I am trying to find low cost conveyancing in Dereham. What do I need to check for?

Many online and high street conveyancers purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often additional fees may pad your solicitor's invoice. Additional fees found in your solicitor's terms ought to be fair and clearly defined. They only apply in cases where the lawyer must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing transaction to buy a £515,000 house, how can we speed things up?

A.

As is often argued, finding a proactive property lawyer is crucial to faster conveyancing. Consider the following:

  • Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?
  • Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
  • Are they 'no move, no fee'? This can incentivise a faster transaction.
  • Q.

    We are shortly going to be finally moving from our semi detached home in Dereham into a dwelling in Cringleford , at what point to appoint a removal company?

    A.

    Your solicitor would tend to advocate that home buyers and sellers hold off until such time as exchange of contracts because in all probability an actual moving date wont have been firmed up.

    The majority of removals companies will levy a rearrangement amount . Local information can be sought from K & L Self Move, Unit 13 Charles Wood Rd, Dereham, NR19 1SX Telephone: 01362 696774 or Birds Removals, Peartree Cottage/Norwich Rd, Dereham, NR20 3AL on 01362 693541.

    Q.

    My husband and I are intending to buy in Dereham. Are there any conservation areas in the area?

    A.

    Conservation areas preserve local areas of special architectural or historic interest. You may wish to contact the council if you have specific questions, but your solicitor will investigate this in detail during the property transaction.

    Q.

    Can we hold off paying out for SDLT?

    A.

    Stamp Duty Land Tax is usually due for residential property sold for over 125,000 pounds. We do not advise home movers risk any stamp duty mitigation, as such schemes are often uneconomical and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed .

    Q.

    We are buying in Dereham on a new-build former industrial site. Is lithium (Li) top-soil contamination likely?

    A.

    The risks posed by soil contamination to Dereham inhabitants are usually low. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Dereham, including local authorities.

    Q.

    If we are buying near Dereham, in the parish of Hardingham, do we need a chancel search?

    A.

    A Dereham conveyancing solicitor could recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the building being bought is found. Through some parish councils have chosen to impose chancel repairs on the current owners, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will remain liability-free for new owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
