Q.

I need fixed rate conveyancing. What should I check?

A.

Many home owners seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates. Many property lawyers advertise cheap conveyancing. However extra charges are often hiding in the terms, left unregarded by busy home owners Applicable disbursements should also be clearly stated on your conveyancing quote Extra costs found in terms of engagement needs to be clearly defined. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

Which local authority looks after East Bergholt?

A.

East Bergholt is located in Babergh District Council, Corks Lane, Hadleigh, Suffolk, IP7 6SJ, phone: 01473 826 622

Q.

I am on a deadline and need guarantee fast conveyancing, what do we need to do?

A.

The key to fast conveyancing is to instruct a communicative property lawyer. There are a number of things you as the buyer could do to accelerate the process, including, responding to your property lawyer by phone, fax or email wherever possible, clarifying your mortgage lender's requirements and calling or emailing your property lawyer, and chase them if you suspect any delays.

Q.

Do you need to get a chancel search? I am buying a East Bergholt property next to a parson's close.

A.

The result of a court case between a parish council and owners of neighbouring farmland liable for church repairs confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Church of England properties in this area which may give rise to chancel liability include St Mary the Virgin.

Q.

Where can I determine additional data on the standard of conservation areas in East Bergholt?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, keep a list of the state of repair of conservation areas in Suffolk and throughout England. Conservation areas in East Bergholt e.g. building materials or street clutter etc. are governed by the local authority (Babergh).

Q.

How early do you need to speak to a solicitor?

A.

Generally, the earlier, the better. Some authors advocate holding off instruction until a chain is completed, 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.

We are buying a house in Wilby. Will a chancel search be needed?

A.

Regardless of the East Bergholt parish you are buying in, the solicitor instructed to handle the transaction may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. Chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have spared previous owners or tenants.

Q.

How do we circumvent paying stamp duty in East Bergholt?

A.

Stamp duty mitigation scheme is not recommended, because these schemes are highly expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later meaning that the full stamp duty amount will be payable.
