Q.

How do we get fixed rate conveyancing in Grange Over Sands?

A.

Confusion over this topic catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing, but additional costs are frequently hidden in small print.

Q.

We are buying a restored chapel in Beetham. Should we get a chancel search?

A.

A lawyer could advise a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the house being purchased is found. Through some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not automatically be the case for future owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

What is gazumping?

A.

Gazumping occurs when a home owner acknowledges an offer, only to reject it in favour of a better offer. There is almost always a danger of being gazumped. You should instruct a conveyancing solicitor as soon as you can to reduce the chance of gazumping.

Q.

What can I do to get out of paying stamp duty land tax?

Q.

The internet has an abundance of guidebooks about doing your own legal work such as leasehold Flats & Houses a supplement to Bradshaw's Guide to DIY House Buying, Selling & Conveyancing. Do we need to spend money on a Grange Over Sands solicitor for my home move?

A.

There is absolutely no argument why a home mover cant take care of the bulk of the your own conveyancing without the help of a skilled Grange Over Sands conveyancing solicitor. In reality however, a conveyancer in Grange Over Sands carries out a huge number of roles from including approving completion statements and investigating title documents some of which are more safely handled with appropriate a skilled professional. Critically DIY conveyancers are not covered by the appropriate cover which qualified firms and their solicitors are duty bound to carry.
