Q.

Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £567,000 residence? I am looking for low cost conveyancing in Hebden Bridge.

A.

Numerous solicitors advertise so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. Busy, stressed homeowners ignore these terms at their peril. The quote should also state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid. Any additional fees found in terms of engagement should be reasonable and only come into force where the lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process is it wise to instruct a solicitor to act on our purchase?

A.

In the majority of situations, the earlier, the better, as the legal work can start immediately. Early instruction of a firm for a purchase allows you will the details of your Hebden Bridge solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process.

Q.

A.

Most lenders in Hebden Bridge are on our panels. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Clayton Julie, 11 Bridge End, Hebden Bridge, HX7 5DR.

Q.

Is tenancy agreement vetting a fee or disbursement?

A.

Each fee and disbursement ought to be identified on a quote, without any hidden charges in the 'small print'. This charge is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your quote.

Q.

The residence being purchased is on a brownfield site. Is aluminium (Al) topsoil contamination likely?

A.

Considerable measures are taken on a national level to identify and resolve soil contamination. The local authority for Hebden Bridge will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like door handles?

A.

Generally speaking, fixtures are 'fixed' to the property and cannot be easily removed, whereas fixtures can be more easily removed. This is an issue which is often overlooked, making it essential that the list of fixtures and fittings to be sold with the property is agreed early.

Q.

Do you need a chancel search? I am purchasing a flat conversion in Hebden Bridge.

A.

Property owners neighbouring a local church must fund repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. A chancel search confirms that such a liability exists. Churches in the area where chancel liability may apply include St James.
