Q.

How do I get a cheap solicitor in Hawkshead for buying a freehold home?

A.

Several firms claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional fees can increase your solicitor's invoice. A conveyancing quote should list costs to be paid to third parties, e.g. the Land Registry, (disbursements). Extra fees found in your solicitor's terms ought to be reasonable. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

How is Hawkshead contaminated land identified?

Land would be contaminated by a broad range of factors caused by man and by nature, like hazardous and regulated installations. An environmental search will give more detail.

Q.

Please confirm how to defer paying stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

SDLT is generally payable on houses valued at over £125,000. We strongly advise against any stamp duty mitigation. Such schemes are costly and unreliable.

Q.

How much would my searches usually cost?

A.

With a Homeward Legal solicitor, clients buying in Hawkshead expected to pay at most £249 for searches on a Hawkshead residential property. Your solicitor will usually advise a pack including a chancel liability search and a local authority search.

Q.

Is it recommended to get a chancel search? We are buying a property by a 16th Century rectory in Hawkshead.

A.

The result of Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. Hawkshead Church of England properties which may give rise to chancel liability include St Michael & All Angels.

Q.

Do fixtures and fittings include things like furniture?

A.

Commonly, fixtures are 'fixed' to the property and fixtures are free-standing. Fixtures and fittings are regularly not considered, which makes the early agreement of the fixtures and fittings form so important.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Hawkshead?

A.

Hawkshead is located in South Lakeland District Council, South Lakeland House, Lowther Street, Kendal, Cumbria, LA9 4UF, Tel: 0845 050 4434

My wife and I are interested in purchasing a property in Hawkshead, and need to know if there are any areas of conservation.
