Q.

I am looking for the cheapest conveyancing quote. How do I get a quote?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many sellers and buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many solicitors promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement, left unread by preoccupied sellers and buyers Your Dunchurch conveyancing quote should list any disbursements. Additional fees listed in the terms ought to be fair and reasonable and only come into force where your lawyer must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Will I need to get searches for chancel liability if my family are buying in Dunchurch?

A.

Property owners proximate to a local church may be required to contribute towards the cost of repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. The solicitor handling your conveyancing will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Dunchurch churches include St. Peter.

Q.

Property lawyers in Dunchurch get some searches when acting for a property buyer - which specific ones?

A.

If buying and getting a mortgage the building society of bank expects at least the following for properties in Dunchurch: Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental and occasionally specific searches for example Planning report.

Q.

Is there anything we can do to bypass paying for SDLT?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is usually payable on home purchases over 125,000 pounds. Homeward Legal strongly advise against any stamp duty reduction. These schemes are often uneconomical and often likely to fail.

Q.

Regarding the serious flooding last year in the Midlands, we are apprehensive that environmental searches won't be sufficient?

A.

Conveyancing searches applied for by the Dunchurch conveyancing solicitor will include the far more detailed Landmark flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

You may be able to converse with a local resident to gain more confidence if still concerned.

Q.

We are buying on a recently-developed ex-industrial use land. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

Though the dangers are usually minor, an area will only be identified as 'contaminated land' if the risk to human life or the environment is deemed unacceptable. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including chlorine and groundwater contaminants like detergents.

Q.

My husband and I are planning to buy in Dunchurch, and need to know if there are any areas of conservation.

A.

With over 8,000 affected areas in England, the regions in or near Dunchurch will include a range of conservation areas. Dunchurch itself is named as a conservation area. You may wish to contact the local authority for more detail, but your conveyancing lawyer will investigate this in detail.

Q.

What environmental concerns can contaminate land in Dunchurch?

A.

Property may be contaminated by numerous natural and human-influenced issues, and factors including local historic industrial processes will be reported on in environmental search results.
