Commuting to the Harleston area? ;

Harleston's closest airport is Norwich International Airport (18 miles). The closest station to Harleston is Diss, about 8 miles away.

All Hallows Ditchingham is a nearby hospital for Harleston.

Q.

How do we find a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

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.

Q.

What do fixtures and fittings include?

A.

Generally speaking, there is no legal definition of fixtures and fittings. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction, and which makes a fixtures and fittings form so necessary.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if I plan to purchase in the parish of Beeston St Lawrence, near Harleston?

A.

A lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search be taken out, irrespective of the parish where the house being bought is located. Chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

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.

Q.

How is stamp duty calculated?

A.

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).

Q.

The lender will be Kent Reliance, is there anything we need to be aware of?

A.

Prior to recent changes, most solicitors could act for the majority lenders. Recently, a number of lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them. Homeward Legal, however, are able to act for all major mortgage lenders so that you will not be required to pay any additional legal fees to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

In about 6 weeks we are hoping to move out of our terraced building on the outskirts of Harleston into our next dwelling in Fakenham . At what point to book a home removal company?

A.

The best advice is for buyers to delay instructing the removals company until both sides have confirmed a formal move date that generally occurs once final contracts are signed. Try Sindalls, 14 London Rd, Harleston, IP20 9BW Telephone: 01379 853720 or Bishop's Move & Hamilton, 6 Speedwell Way, Harleston, IP20 9EH on 01603 765328.

Q.

How can I find out whether the conservation area is in a poor state?

A.

Local Harleston conservation areas are specified by the local authority (South Norfolk) who are responsible for everything from including things like vacant buildings, loft extensions and public spaces.

English Heritage have assembled details about the condition of conservation areas as well as the trend of the area.
