Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? We are trying to find a discount conveyancing estimate in Glossop.

A.

Various solicitors claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms that unknowing buyers have not reviewed A conveyancing quote should also clearly state costs to be paid to third parties, e.g. the Land Registry, (disbursements). Extra costs should be clearly defined. They only apply to matters if your conveyancer is required to complete extra work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Myself and my partner are purchasing a house in Glossop. Can we verify that the house is in a conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas qualify areas of historical merit. Conservation areas in Glossop include Howard Town. The local council will offer more information about local conservation areas, and the conveyancing lawyer handling your purchase should discuss what specific restrictions are in place.

Q.

What will the council tax cost me for a buy to let Band C flat in Glossop?

A.

Your pertinent band will usually be given in the report on title along with the local authority.

The correct rates for properties in Glossop are listed online at the High Peak council website. At the time of writing, 13 August 2012, rates are:

  • Band A - £1,000.00

Q.

The property seller looks to have installed unseemly windows to the maisonette which I think might break the Trentham conservation area guidelines.

A.

Your property solicitor will carry out searches to check if the property is affected by a conservation area and whether any modifications have essential consents from the local authority.

Q.

We are purchasing a barn conversion in Newhall. Will it be necessary to get a chancel search?

A.

The solicitor responsible for your move might recommend that a chancel search is taken out. In Glossop's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on the owners of a building where parish councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

We have found an abundance of resources about DIY conveyancing such as House Buying, Selling and Conveyancing: How to Save Estate Agent and Solicitor Fees When Buying or Selling Property. Do I therefore need a lawyer in Glossop ?

A.

If you wish to have a try you can certainly carry out the bulk of the legal and technical work without external help from an experienced conveyancing solicitor in Glossop. All solicitors would suggest that this choice is a dangerous route t take as DIY conveyancers will not have acceptable professional indemnity insurance which qualified solicitors practices are required to carry.

Q.

What does 'gazumping' really mean?

A.

The convention of rejecting a previously accepted offer once another buyer makes a bigger offer is called gazumping. The chance of getting gazumped is present in any transaction. Instructing a conveyancing solicitor as soon as you can is a key first step to reducing this risk.

Q.

When is it appropriate to find a solicitor to handle our purchase?

A.

With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, as soon as possible. Some authors suggest waiting before instruction until the offer is accepted, but opting to delay can jeopardise your sale or purchase.
