Read about the area ;

Q.

What will the overall charge be on the sale of a 487,000 property? I am trying to find a fixed rate conveyancing quote.

A.

Many solicitors advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional charges are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Excited home owners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Extra fees should be fair.

Q.

Might my conveyancing quote cover any extra charges?

A.

Unfortunately, buyers must be on their guard for considerable extra costs hidden in small print. Our solicitors do not hide any hidden extra fees. Be aware that some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. You may face a much greater total fee when you have completed.

Q.

As a result of the terrible flooding in the UK in April 2012, I am questioning whether conveyancing searches may not be exacting enough?

A.

The Eye lawyer will get additional flood risk searches if the standard searches flag up any kind of Eye area flood risk

Sometimes home buyers to contact a close neighbour to get more local information or regional Suffolk flooding repair expert - try: Sneath & Son, Mara House/The Common, Mellis, Eye, IP23 8EB Tel: 01379 788405.

Q.

I am buying a £346000, what should be calculated for stamp duty?

A.

The Stamp Duty Land Tax owed depends on a limited set of factors, including the value of the property, and whether it is in a 'disadvantaged area'. Stamp duty will be £10380 on a £346000 property (information correct February 2013).

Q.

The web is full of an increasing number very helpful publications about by passing the solicitor e.g. House Buying, Selling and Conveyancing by Joesph Bradshaw and Georgia Bedworth. In which case, do I need to instruct a solicitor in Eye ?

A.

There is no argument why a seller cant opt to take care of the bulk of the your own conveyancing without the help of Eye conveyancing solicitor. The truth is however that a solicitor takes care of a large number of activities ranging from chasing completion statements and notifying the Land Registry of new charges which need adequate training.

Q.

How soon do you need to instruct a conveyancer to handle our purchase?

A.

In the majority of situations, earlier is preferable. Early instruction of a conveyancing solicitor could mitigate the chance of the other side pulling out.

Q.

Which regions of Eye are secured by a conservation area?

A.

With over eight thousand such areas listed throughout the country, the areas in or near Eye will include numerous conservation areas. Your lawyer will be able to advise further, in regard to relevant conservation area restrictions in Eye.

Q.

Is it necessary that I get a chancel liability search? We are purchasing a Eye property on the same street as a rectory.

A.

Property owners neighbouring nearby church property may be required to subsidise repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. As a result of the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. Eye Church of England properties where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Matthew and St Peter & St Paul.
