Q.

How do I find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Many online and high street conveyancers offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often additional charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

Regarding the major flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands, we are wondering if environmental searches may not be detailed enough?

A.

A diligent Gamston lawyer will get environmental searches (Landmark search) if the enviro search identifies a significant risk Gamston flood risk area

It is not uncommon for buyers to also get in touch with a neighbour or local resident for added information.

Q.

What specific searches should my Gamston property solicitor do when carrying out the conveyancing for a Gamston home?

A.

The common procedure will be to obtain Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environment Search and Gypsum Mining and occasionally less common searches, like a CON294.

Q.

We are buying on a Gamston ex-industrial use land. Could the top-soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

Some metal contamination may have occurred throughout Gamston, but some very localised cases of contamination in Gamston may pose unacceptably high risk. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Gamston, including local authorities.

Q.

Which body looks after for checking the status of the conservation areas in Gamston?

A.

English Heritage keep records of the state of conservation areas. Local Gamston conservation area issues such as street furniture, dormer windows or billboards are police by Bassetlaw.

Q.

Do we need a chancel liability search if we are purchasing a home by parish land in Gamston?

A.

Property owners in a neighbourhood near church property in the locality must contribute towards the cost of repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including the Title Register database. Churches in Gamston where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Peter.

Q.

What does a Gamston property solicitor recommend if the maisonette we hope to invest in is inside a conservation area in Bassetlaw planning authority that may have ill-suited doors added?

A.

Bassetlaw council LLC1 searches conducted by your Gamston property lawyer during the conveyancing process should confirm the existence of the appropriate council approval for any development to the building. In the absence of any consents the solicitor will inform you of all options, which include getting from Bassetlaw planning authority or buying an indemnity policy.

Q.

Do you state looking into how to circumvent paying stamp duty land tax?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is generally payable for purchases over one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. Homeward Legal do not recommend any stamp duty scheme. These schemes are expensive and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed. There have been several legitimate initiatives, however, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'.
