Q.

I need a cheap Filey solicitor for selling a house. How do I get a quote?

A.

Various solicitors offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees will be included in the terms. Additional fees needs to be fair and reasonable. They only be applied if the solicitor is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A quote should also state any disbursements to be paid.

Q.

Does my professional conveyancing solicitor in Filey inform me about the cost of the council tax on a Band H property prior to exchange of contracts?

A.

The property solicitor will write to the council to discover the correct council tax band and rates, which will then be set out in the conveyancing report on title. The correct charges for properties in Filey are published on the Scarborough council site. At the time of writing on 09 August 2012 rates are:

  • Band A - £1,036.00
  • Band B - £1,208.00
  • Band C - £1,381.00
  • Band D - £1,553.00
  • Band E - £1,899.00
  • Band F - £2,244.00
  • Band G - £2,589.00
  • Band H - £3,107.00

Q.

The property being bought is on a brownfield land. Is antimony top-soil contamination likely?

A.

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Filey, but an area will only be identified as 'contaminated land' if the risk to human life or the environment is deemed

unacceptable. The local authority for Filey will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

Is contaminated land an issue for the majority of homes in Filey?

A.

A wide range of contaminants may lessen the desirability land, and an environmental search will confirm if a property may be affected by contaminants in Filey including landfill sites or other land contamination. North Wold Farm, North Yorkshire, YO14 0LE, for example, may be a source of local contamination.

Q.

How much can our searches be?

A.

With a Homeward Legal solicitor, conveyancing clients are required to pay no more than £249 for a standard search bundle. Searches are disbursements paid to a third party, and are not included in the quoted conveyancing fees.

Q.

How long on average should I expect it to take the property solicitor to carry out all of the legal formalities on a semi detached new build home?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere from 3 weeks and 3 months, contingent on various issues e.g. the efficiency of the seller's property solicitor, or the speed of other lawyers in the chain.

Q.

We need to complete this purchase as soon as possible, can we organise a fast completion in Filey?

A.

Key to a fast conveyancing transaction is to employing a proactive lawyer. Beyond that, there are several things you as the buyer can do to accelerate the process, including, calling or emailing your lawyer, and chase them if you suspect any delays, answering any queries raised by your lawyer as soon as possible and getting your mortgage offer in place.

Q.

What type of environmental conveyancing searches concerning the potential risk of a flood in the Yorkshire, North Riding region will the conveyancer in Filey conduct for a residential property we intend to buy?

A.

The solicitor will apply for standard environmental searches that should include Filey flood risk area information.
