Q.

How do I get the best rates for conveyancing in Framlingham for a £738,000 property?

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, and many firms advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional charges can increase the solicitor's invoice. The disbursements to be paid should also be included on your conveyancing quote Any additional fees needs to be fair and reasonable and be applicable if your conveyancer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Do you need a chancel search? We are buying a property in Framlingham.

A.

Chancel liability can require owners in Framlingham to fund repairs to nearby church land. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Framlingham property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Framlingham churches which may give rise to chancel liability include St Michael.

Q.

What does a Framlingham conveyancing lawyer advise if the home I hope to invest in is situated in a Suffolk Coastal local authority conservation area that possibly has unlawful cladding fitted to it?

Suffolk Coastal planning authority searches conducted by your Framlingham conveyancing solicitor in the process of the conveyancing should ascertain the existence of the appropriate authorisation for alterations to the property. In the event that no appropriate permissions be produced, your solicitor will give you professional advice on the alternatives which include seeking cover from an indemnity insurance policy or getting retrospective permission.

Q.

I am buying a chapel in Nettleshead. Will it be necessary to get a chancel search?

A.

The solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the house being purchased is found. Although some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to impose chancel repairs on the current owners, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not continue to be so. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Why can Framlingham property legal work for a purchase take such a long time? Isn't it a simple matter of filing paperwork?

A.

The conveyancing process could potentially be delayed. Homeward Legal strive to reduce their consequences by pushing all parties involved. Reasons for delay include issues elsewhere in a chain.

Q.

Are there many conservation areas in the area?

A.

Conservation areas qualify areas of historical merit. The benefits of such restrictions include security that the surroundings are unlikely to change, but they can add to maintenance costs.

Q.

The property being bought is on a brownfield site. Can the soil still be contaminated?

A.

Framlingham and the surrounding region has a legacy of chemical contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as groundwater contaminants like sewage and herbicides, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

What steps can we take to defer paying stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty avoidance must be treated with caution by purchasers in Framlingham, as such schemes are costly and very risky.
