Q.

How do I get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Several conveyancers claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra costs are often hiding in small print. Busy, stressed home owners ignore these terms at their peril. A quote for conveyancing in Doncaster should also state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid. Extra costs listed in the solicitor's terms ought to be reasonable and only be applied if your lawyer must complete unanticipated additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

How will the lawyer in Doncaster advise me on the risk of floods in Doncaster?

A.

A crucial component in the legal due diligence process of buying a property involves the lawyer conducting environmental searches that set out details of any likely risk of flooding in Doncaster.

Q.

Would you recommend that I get a chancel search if we are purchasing a Doncaster flat close by a 12th Century 'parson's close'?

A.

The judgement in a landmark case in 2003 confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Several sources are used to determine liability in Doncaster,

including maps of Doncaster's parish boundaries. Ecclesiastical properties in this area where a chancel search may be necessary include St Leonard & St Jude, St Oswald and Holy Trinity.

Q.

If land is found to be contaminated, can the soil be inexpensively remediated?

A.

In Doncaster, remediation is possible is some cases, and a local specialist e.g. South Yorkshire Turf Supplies, Abbey Lodge Bootham Lane, Dunscroft, Doncaster, DN7 4JT can provide additional information.

Q.

Of large Doncaster lenders, who is on your panel?

A.

Most lenders in Doncaster are on our solicitors' panels. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Cash Shop, 19 French Gate, Doncaster, DN1 1PZ, Mortgage Choices Ltd, 24 Hall Gate, Doncaster, DN1 3NG, and Q S Mortgage Brokers Ltd, 262 Bentley Rd, Doncaster, DN5 9QP.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if we are intending to buy in the parish?

A.

Whichever Doncaster parish in which you are buying, a property solicitor may suggest a chancel search. In Doncaster's much older areas, chancel repair can be imposed on the current owners of a home where parish councils have previously chosen not to do so, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Are there any disadvantaged areas in Doncaster?

A.

There are almost 2,000 disadvantaged areas throughout the country. Disadvantaged areas in Doncaster currently include Adwick, Balby, Wheatley, Mexborough, Central, Rossington, Thorne, Askern, Bentley Central, Conisbrough, Intake, Stainforth and Town Field. Update: As of the 2013/14 tax year, stamp duty relief for disadvantaged areas is no longer available.

Q.

Myself and my partner are planning to buy in Doncaster, and need to know if there are many conservation areas.

A.

Locales deemed to be of historic or architectural significance, such as stretches of canals, will be recorded as conservation areas. St Georges, Thorne Road and Hatfield High Street are among the conservation areas in Doncaster. A conveyancing solicitor will confirm potential liability for unauthorised works and be able to provide more details for conservation areas in Doncaster.
