Q.

How do I get low cost conveyancing in Dursley?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many property buyers and sellers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many solicitors claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra fees will be included in the terms of engagement. Any fees ought to be reasonable. They only be applied if your lawyer must complete additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Our lender will be Godiva Mortgages, what do we need to consider?

A.

Purchasers should be aware that some lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly higher conveyancing costs. We, however, will act for many CML-approved lenders.

Q.

My partner and I are interested in purchasing in Dursley. How can we verify that the house is in a conservation area?

A.

There are several conservation areas around Dursley. The local council will advise further about local conservation areas, and the solicitor handling your purchase address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area.

Q.

At what point should we instruct a conveyancer to act on our purchase?

If you use a solicitor offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the sooner you instruct a solicitor, the better. A number of sources advocate postponing instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.

Q.

Does my conveyancing solicitor in Dursley conduct any property conveyancing searches on the Gloucestershire thirties terraced house I am purchasing

A.

The conventional legal protocol is to get these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search and Environment Search, and possibly less common searches for instance Limestone Search.

Q.

What can we do to avoid paying for stamp duty on buying a house in Dursley?

A.

Stamp duty is generally due for houses sold for more than one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. Stamp duty avoidance is not recommended. These schemes are costly and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed and the total stamp duty tax may be payable, along with interest and penalties.

Q.

What local factors can contaminate land in Dursley, and should they be an issue?

A.

Many of contaminants can damage residential property in Dursley . Issues like coal mining and overhead transmission lines should be considered as part of the appropriate search. Contamination can be caused by local landfill sites, including Standle Farm Landfill Site, Gloucestershire, GL11 6NH.

Q.

We need to complete this purchase as soon as possible, can we organise a fast conveyancing transaction?

A.

Key to fast Dursley conveyancing is to instruct a proactive conveyancer. Consider the following when selecting:

  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?
  • Do they use email?
  • Do they order searches immediately?
