Q.

How do I find the cheapest East Oxford conveyancing quote?

Q.

Would acquiring a Homebuyer Report be required if we are purchasing a property in East Oxford?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors suggest that all buyers arrange a building survey. Buyers should be aware that there are many issues that can affect a property, such as subsidence. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

What are the alternatives if purchasing a property in a Oxford local authority designated conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the property legal involves procurement of searches of the Oxford authority to confirm conservation area status and the requisite consent for alterations. .

Q.

We need to complete this freehold residence purchase as soon as possible, how do we ensure fast legal work?

A.

Crucial to a faster move is to employing a proactive and experienced lawyer. There are, in addition, a number of things you as the purchaser can do, including, arranging any finances require to complete the purchase, quickly answering your lawyer's questions (by email if possible) and requesting regular updates from your lawyer and keep the pressure on.

Q.

I am intending to purchase a rectory in Ickford. Will a chancel search be needed?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor might recommend that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish in which the house being purchased is found. Through some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have determined to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, there is no guarantee that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before will remain liability-free for new owners.

Q.

Is it a bad idea to bypass paying SDLT rates?

A.

We do not advise home buyers expose their finances to any form of stamp duty reduction scheme, as such schemes are often uneconomical and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.

Q.

How is stamp duty rates worked out?

A.

Stamp Duty is based on the purchase price. For a property in East Oxford estimated at £956000, SDLT is £38240.*
