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.

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

A.

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.

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.

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'.

Q.

Will the property report prepared by the property lawyer in Gamston investigate the relevant rates of the council tax for a Band A flat before completion?

A.

Your property solicitor will contact the Bassetlaw local council to ascertain the up to date council tax charges which should then be set out in the conveyancer's title report. Up-to-date charges for homes in Gamston are detailed at the Bassetlaw council site. At the time of writing (14 March 2013) rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £1,070.00
  • Band B - £1,248.00
  • Band C - £1,427.00
  • Band D - £1,605.00
  • Band E - £1,962.00
  • Band F - £2,318.00
  • Band G - £2,675.00
  • Band H - £3,210.00

Q.

My local agent has referred a law firm which they often use. Will it be more cost-effective to use this solicitor?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers may suggest a conveyancer. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, the agent may recommend the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

Doing your own conveyancing without the assistance of a Gamston conveyancing solicitor is becoming possible as a buyer of a home. However, would it really be reckless ?

A.

Technically, there is no reason at all why you should not carry out the your own conveyancing on your own. That said, a Gamston lawyer is in charge of a large array of tasks including checking contracts and the Land Registry formalities most of which require a qualified professional. Nevertheless legal firms are required to carry professional indemnity insurance in order to protect you in the event of failures made by the lawyer.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process do we need to instruct a conveyancer to handle our sale?

A.

In the majority of situations, the sooner you instruct a firm, the better. Early instruction of a solicitor to act on your Gamston sale or purchase for a purchase enables you will the details of your Gamston solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers.
