Q.

What do you charge for the legal fees on a £449,000 residence? I am looking for low cost conveyancing in Ferndown.

A.

Numerous firms offer cheap conveyancing, but extra costs may increase your final invoice. Your Ferndown conveyancing quote should state any disbursements.The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Do I need a chancel search? We are buying a home near parsonage land in Ferndown.

A.

Owners of property in Ferndown may be subject to chancel repair liability. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including parish records. Ferndown church lands include St Marys Church.

Q.

Is manganese contamination frequently found to affect Ferndown soil?

A.

Most soils in Ferndown have some degree of contamination, from industrial or agricultural. Also considering issues such as groundwater contamination, contaminants affecting Ferndown property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

Will the report on title prepared by the Ferndown conveyancing solicitor report on the rates of council tax on a Band B property prior to exchange of contracts?

A.

Your lawyer will approach the relevant East Dorset local council to discover the latest council tax charges which

will then be set out in the conveyancer's title report. The correct rates for properties in Ferndown are set out in detail on the East Dorset local authority site. At the time of writing (07 February 2013) rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £1,093.00
  • Band B - £1,275.00

Q.

What length of time should it take our lawyer to get through the legal formalities on a semi detached building we are intending to buy in Ferndown?

A.

Completion can take anywhere between a month and three months depending on any number of factors such as the efficiency of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or whether there are any linked sales.

Q.

What specific search enquiries does my solicitor in Ferndown get when buying a Ferndown house?

A.

The normal legal protocol will be to obtain the following Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal), Environment Search, Tin Mining Search and China Search, and possibly less common searches e.g. a British Waterways.

Q.

I plan to purchase a barn conversion in the parish of Melbury Sampford with Melbury Osmond. Are we advised to get a chancel search?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils have opted to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish which has not imposed liability will not automatically be the case for future owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

We are purchasing in Ferndown, and need to know if there are many conservation areas.

A.

There are a number of conservation areas near or within Ferndown. A lawyer will discuss what specific restrictions are in place and offer more information.
