Q.

Please confirm the cheapest fee for a £640k home? I need to find fixed rate conveyancing.

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many homeowners paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many solicitors claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional fees can increase your final bill.

Q.

Is it important that I get a chancel search? I am buying a property on the same street as a church in Flint.

A.

As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Flint which was once owned by a 'lay impropriators' can be liable for maintenance of local churches. A chancel search is employed to check whether such a liability exists.

Q.

Our purchase is completing in November. How is Stamp Duty Land Tax rates calculated?

A.

The Stamp Duty you pay will rely on the house's price. For a residential property estimated at £172000, SDLT will be £1720.*

Q.

Can we check that the property we are buying is in a designated conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas denote local areas of historical or architectural value. The advantages of these restrictions include a more attractive neighbourhood, but they can result in the buyer inheriting liability of unauthorised changes. Your solicitor will be able to advise further.

Q.

My friend has experience of DIY conveyancing when buying and selling a flat , Is it foolish to carry out the legal work without any help?

A.

Hypothetically there is no argument at all why a seller should not handle the your own conveyancing yourself.

However, a conveyancer takes care of a huge number of functions including chasing retention releases and interpreting planning contraventions some of which need a skilled professional.

Q.

I am worried about the council tax rates on a Sixties semi-detached house in Flint, what are they?

A.

Commonly, the report on title will give detail the Flintshire council tax band.

Up-to-date charges for homes in Flint are tabled online at the Flintshire local authority website. At the time of writing (08/07/2012) the different rates are:

  • Band A - £789.25

  • Band F - £1,710.03
  • Band G - £1,973.12
  • Band H - £2,367.74

Q.

Will a Flint lawyer apply for any searches on the Flintshire Edwardian mid terrace bungalow I am intending to purchase?

A.

The common legal procedure will be to obtain Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environmental as well as any specific local Flint searches, which might include Contaminated Land.

Q.

I plan to purchase a house in the parish of Llanufydd. Will a chancel search be necessary?

A.

Whether you are buying a building in Flint or elsewhere in the county, the solicitor should confirm that a chancel search be ordered. 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 dues have not recently been paid will not continue to be so, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.
