Q.

How do I get a discount conveyancing estimate in Hartford?

A.

Many firms claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms. Additional fees found in terms and conditions needs to be fair. They only be applied if your conveyancer must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

What is gazumping?

A.

This occurs when a property seller accepts the first purchaser's offer and then rejects it, selecting instead a second buyer's offer. There is almost always a danger of being gazumped. Instructing an efficient solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to handle your transaction should help to reduce the likelihood of gazumping.

Q.

As a result of the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England I am thinking that flood searches aren't sufficient?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor in Hartford will suggest that you also get property conveyancing searches if the environmental conveyancing searches establishes a significant risk local Hartford flood risk.

Sometimes property buyers to speak to a local resident for additional more peace of mind.

Q.

Would you recommend that we get a chancel search? We are buying a property next to a church built in the 15th Century in Hartford.

A.

There are 15000 ecclesiastical parishes in England and Wales. Owners of property within some of these may be required to contribute towards the repair of a local church. A chancel search is used to confirm whether such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Hartford ecclesiastical properties include All Saints and St John's Parish Church.

Q.

The purchase is completing next September, how is stamp duty assessed?

A.

The SDLT you must pay is dependent on the home's value. Stamp duty will be £11250 on a £375000 house or flat.*

Q.

Are any Hartford conservation areas likely to affect us?

A.

Conservation areas indicate areas of special architectural or historic interest. A conveyancing solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities.

Q.

We plan to buy a home in the parish of Pulford. Is a chancel search appropriate?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search, whichever parish where the building being bought is found. Through some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to charge chancel repairs on the owners of affected property, there is no way to be certain that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will continue to be free from liability, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Are searches usually recommended?

A.

Conveyancing searches are a standardised pack of questions ordered by your conveyancing lawyer, including a chancel liability search. These are not a substitute for a survey and will not give information on the physical condition of the property.
