Q.

Is it important that I get a chancel search? I am purchasing close to a rectory manor in Flitwick.

A.

Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Flitwick Church council. A chancel search confirms that such a liability exists. The solicitor acting on your behalf will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Church of England properties in Flitwick where chancel liability may apply include St Andrew and St Peter & St Paul.

Q.

What causes purchase conveyancing legal work to have so many delays?

The legal work required to buy or sell a property can be obstructed. We aim to minimise their consequences whenever it is feasible by chasing for prompt responses. Common delays may include slow solicitors acting for the other side.

Q.

What steps can we take to circumvent paying for stamp duty tax?

A.

SDLT is generally payable for purchases sold for more than 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty reduction must be treated with caution by purchasers in Flitwick. These schemes are costly and often likely to fail. There have been a range of government initiatives, however, such as for first-time buyers, and your solicitor will advise if these may apply.

Q.

Is a property survey required when we are buying a house?

A.

Homeward Legal firmly suggest that you arrange a home surveyor. There are many defects that have a negative impact on a property, which are not included in your mortgage lender's valuation, including settlement and ground movement.

Q.

What does the Flitwick conveyancing solicitor advise if the building is situated in a conservation area in Central Bedfordshire local authority which appears to have unapproved PVC windows added?

A.

Central Bedfordshire council searches carried out by a solicitor during the conveyancing process will find out if the property is within a conservation area and evidence of Coal Authority consent for alterations will be requested.

Q.

We are hopefully going to sell our co-owned house at a nearby auction, does Homeward Legal any especially fast Flitwick solicitors ?

A.

Our firm take a thoroughly efficient approach when concluding the legal process for sellers. We always allocate you to company who are client focused and always communicate through the whole of the buyer and seller chain .
