Q.

What will the overall charge be on the sale of a £478,000 property? We need to find a low cost conveyancing estimate in Egremont.

A.

Many online and high street law firms claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms which unwary home owners fail to check. Extra fees which are listed in the terms ought to be reasonable and only come into force where your conveyancer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

I have a requirement to complete on the sale of a house within 28 days, are you especially fast Egremont solicitors ?

A.

Our conveyancers take a highly speed focused approach when carrying out the transfer of title for sellers.

Homeward Legals property lawyers try to communicate as efficiently as possible up and down the buyer and seller chain and use the latest HMRC and Land Registry integrated systems to complete on the property sale swiftly.

Q.

Does our solicitor in Egremont inform me about the cost of the council tax for a Band G property prior to exchange?

A.

Your property lawyer will consult with the appropriate Copeland local council to ascertain the relevant council tax rates, which should be detailed in the report on title. Correct charges for homes in Egremont are published at the Copeland council

website. At the time of writing (08 January 2013) the different rates are:

Q.

Which property conveyancing searches should my conveyancer in Egremont carry out when acting on a Egremont house?

A.

The common legal protocol is to get Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environmental and Gypsum Mining Search and, depending on certain criteria, area-specific searches e.g. a Official Search of whole without priority.

Q.

The current owner looks to have added stone cladding to the maisonette in Egremont which I think may defy local conservation area rules

A.

Your lawyer will always check whether the property is within a conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have the required permission.

Q.

As a consequence of the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England we are asking if flood risk searches won't be exacting enough?

A.

Food risk searches conducted by your Egremont property solicitor should include the more thorough search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

If you are nervous try to get in touch with a neighbour.

Q.

Is an administration fee a disbursement or fee?

A.

Some firms pass off additional costs as disbursements. It may be unclear if a cost is a disbursement or not, and whether it should be included. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in a quote.

Q.

What does 'fixtures and fittings' relate to?

A.

Generally speaking, fixtures are fixed to the property and cannot be easily removed and fixtures are free-standing items, like lamps or lightshades. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.
