Q.

We are buying a Gresford home with ING Direct, what do we need to consider?

Buyers in Gresford need to be aware that some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, potentially creating increased legal costs for property purchasers. We are able to act for the majority of UK mortgage lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay an additional fee for your lender's solicitor.

Q.

My husband and I are purchasing a building in Gresford, and would like to verify that there are any conservation areas.

A.

With 9000 listed areas across the country, the local areas near or within Gresford will include numerous areas of conservation. You may wish to contact the local council if you have specific questions, but your solicitor will investigate this in detail.

Q.

Can you recommend how to get out of paying stamp duty on a residential property?

A.

SDLT is usually payable for homes over £125,000. Stamp duty reduction should not be considered, as such schemes are costly and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later. There have been a small number of government-sponsored schemes, on the other hand, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers.

Q.

Would you advise that we get a chancel search if you are purchasing a Gresford property close to a glebe?

A.

Some owners in Gresford can be required to pay for upkeep of church property in the locality. Some names or words such as 'abbeylands' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply.
