Q.

How do we find the best conveyancing rates for a £504,000 home?

A.

Many law firms claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra fees are often hiding in the small print.

Q.

How do we determine more data on the upkeep of Downton conservation areas?

A.

Conservation are issues, such as public spaces, addition of hard standings to the front of houses or traffic signs etc. are handled by the local authority (Test Valley). English Heritage, a government body, keep a list of the condition of conservation areas.

Q.

Which elements are key to aim for a fast conveyancing transaction?

A.

Finding a experienced solicitor is the key to fast Downton conveyancing. That said, there are several things you as the buyer could do, including, arranging any finances require to complete the purchase, responding to all correspondence via the fastest means and calling or emailing your solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search? I am purchasing a house by an ecclesiastical parish in Downton.

A.

Owners of property in a neighbourhood near a local church must contribute towards repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. As a result of the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land in Downton must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Ecclesiastical properties in this area where a chancel search may be necessary include St Laurence.

Q.

How might conveyancing for a Downton property purchase take so long?

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase a property could be held up by numerous, often unpredictable, issues. Homeward Legal strive to reduce their cost by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible.

Q.

Is preparation of title repair or a indemnity policy a fee or disbursement?

A.

It is not always obvious whether a quoted cost is a disbursement or fee. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your quote.

Q.

What do I need to be aware of if we buy a converted flat located inside a Test Valley planning authority conservation area ?

A.

Test Valley local authority LLC1 searches carried out by the solicitor during the conveyancing process should check the existence of suitable permission for any development to the property.

Q.

How do you calculate SDLT and how much should it be on a £1161000 residence?

A.

The Stamp Duty you will owe will rely on a small range of considerations, including the house's value. Stamp duty will be £58050 on a £1161000 property in Downton.
