Q.

Do all cheap conveyancing quotes have extra fees? I am looking for a low cost conveyancing estimate.

A.

Many firms offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional charges are frequently hidden in the small print. Excited buyers and sellers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Applicable disbursements must also be stated on a conveyancing quote Additional fees listed in terms and conditions needs to be reasonable.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a Fifties mid-terrace Band H property in Dulverton?

A.

You will find your homes council tax band with the title report. The correct charges for homes in Dulverton are set out at the West Somerset local authority site. At the time of writing, 11 January 2013, the rates are:

  • Band A - £973.00

  • Band F - £2,107.00
  • Band G - £2,432.00

Q.

What does 'fixtures and fittings' relate to?

A.

Chiefly, fixtures are permanently fixed to the property, whereas fixtures are free-standing items, like free-standing kitchen appliances. This is frequently disregarded, making agreement of a comprehensive list of included items so essential.

Q.

Is it necessary to get a chancel liability search? I am purchasing a maisonette by a glebe in Dulverton.

A.

Property owners near to specific local church buildings must contribute towards repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Dulverton ecclesiastical properties where chancel liability may apply include All Saints.

Q.

How much will my searches be?

A.

The cost of searches significantly varies, subject to the searches your lender requires. Commonly ordered searches include an environmental search and a drainage search.

Q.

We plan to buy a chapel in the parish of St Marychurch. Is a chancel search needed?

A.

Regardless of the Dulverton parish in which you are buying, the property solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search is taken out. In Dulverton's much older areas, chancel repair can be imposed on owners of a building where church councils have previously chosen not to do so, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

My estate agent has offered the conveyancing that they have used before. Is it a good idea to use this firm?

A.

An agent may recommend a solicitor, however, these referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as an agent may decide to recommend the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.
