How do we find a discount conveyancing quote?


Numerous firms claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing. Often additional fees are frequently hidden in the small print. Your conveyancing quote should, in addition, define any disbursements.Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


What sort of environmental searches in respect to the risk of flooding to properties in Norfolk will the Harleston lawyer actually carry out?


A critical part of the legal process involves your conveyancing solicitor carrying out environmental searches that give detail with respect to Harleston flood risk area data.


Property environmental searches are compiled from past records and given current events such as the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall, are they actually good enough to advise on sufficient information about the evolving Harleston future flood risk?

The Harleston property lawyer will get additional in depth flood searches (Landmark database search) if the enviro search establishes a Harleston flood risk area data

You can always converse with a neighbour or local resident to get extra local history or regional Norfolk flood repair builder, try Johnson Graham, 25 Broad St, Harleston, IP20 9AZ Tel: 01379 855209.


Should we get a chancel liability search? We are buying a house in Harleston.


Some owners in Harleston can be required to fund maintenance of nearby church land. Terms used in a property's name, like 'Glebe Farm', may indicate chancel liability. A solicitor will be able to advise further. Ecclesiastical properties in this area include St Augustine of Canterbury and St John the Baptist.


Harleston solicitors conduct official conveyancing searches when they are instructed to act for a purchase client, but which actual searches?


If you are getting a mortgage the lender requires you to at least specific searches, including these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search and Environment Search, and possibly area-specific searches such as Planning and local information.


How is stamp duty calculated?


Stamp Duty Land Tax is calculated based on the purchase price of the house. On a £991000 property, stamp duty will be £39640 (correct March 2013).


At what point should we get a solicitor?


Simply, as soon as possible. Prompt instruction of a conveyancing solicitor to act for you on your Harleston transaction can limit the risk of the transaction falling through.


What precautions can we take to get out of paying stamp duty?


We firmly advise against any stamp duty avoidance, because these schemes are highly expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later and the total stamp duty, with interest, will be due.
