Some useful local public service information

The closest airport to Dorset is Bournemouth International Airport. The nearest station to Dorset is Weymouth, almost 3 miles away.

Q.

Dorset points of interest

A.

Portland Bill Lighthouse, Portland Castle English Heritage and Portland St George Churches Conservation Trust are near to Dorset.

The nearest hospital is Portland Castletown.

Q.

What are the best rates for conveyancing for a £521,000 house?

A.

Many conveyancers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms. Busy, stressed buyers and sellers ignore these terms at their peril. Extras should be fair.

Q.

Apparently, rubidium (Rb) soil contamination may be an issue in Dorset. Can you advise?

A.

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Dorset, but some very localised cases of contamination in Dorset may pose unacceptably high risk. Data on many contaminants, such as industrial storage and groundwater contamination, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

How much will my searches be?

A.

The cost of searches in Dorset considerably varies, subject to the searches your lender requires. They are disbursements paid to a third party, and are charged at cost.

Q.

Can I bypass paying for stamp duty on buying a house in Dorset?

A.

Stamp duty commonly must be paid for home purchases sold for more than £125,000. Stamp duty reduction is not advised. Such schemes are highly expensive and often likely to fail.

Q.

For fast conveyancing to buy a £871k property, what should we guarantee to speed up the conveyancing process?

A.

Primarily, a fast transaction is essential to is to use a proactive and experienced conveyancer. When finding a conveyancer, consider these points: Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote? Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication? Do they offer 'no move, no fee' protection? This can incentivise a faster transaction.

Q.

We are purchasing a £1071000. How is stamp duty rates calculated?

A.

The Stamp Duty you must pay is dependent on the valuation. On a £1071000 house or flat, stamp duty will be £53550 (correct March 2013).

Q.

I have to complete on the conveyancing on a house inside a month - are Homeward Legal really fast solicitors in Dorset ?

A.

Our conveyancing solicitors by default take a highly take charge approach when conducting the conveyancing process to meet the home sellers needs.

Our chosen solicitors approach to conveyancing is different as we use leading edge case management systems .

More importantly , we assign you a chosen solicitor practiced at communicate through all parts of the buyer and seller chain .

Q.

Doing ones own conveyancing without instructing a conveyancer in Dorset is becoming possible when buying a maisonette , but would it be insensible ?

A.

Should you wish to try you can feasibly engage in the majority of the legal work without using an experienced conveyancer in Dorset. In reality however, a conveyancer in Dorset juggles a large array of functions including chasing notices/share certificates or locating planning docs some of which are more safely handled with appropriate adequate training.

More importantly DIY lawyers will not have the applicable cover that every lawyers are under a duty to obtain.
