Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a 431k home?

A.

Several conveyancers promote so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional fees can increase the solicitor's invoice. Any costs should be reasonable and clear and be applicable if your solicitor is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.

Q.

Does our solicitor in Hellesdon tell me about the amount to be paid of the council tax on a Band G flat before exchanging contracts?

A.

A property lawyer will contact the Broadland local council to ascertain the latest council tax charges which will then be set out in the conveyancing report on title. Council tax charges for homes in Hellesdon are detailed at the Broadland local authority website. As at, 15 June 2012, rates for all bands are:

What do fixtures and fittings include?

A.

Buyers are often frustrated by confusion regarding which fixtures and fittings will be included. To avoid confusion, a list should be agreed by both sides and will confirm which items are included in the sale.

Q.

Do Homeward Legal advise on auction conveyancing in Hellesdon?

A.

All of our property conveyancers commonly handle the legal work for sellers at auction. We consistently recommend purchasers to decide on a an affordable solicitor in advance of the actual auction to allow adequate time for a full review.

Subsequently, immediately after the property auction date the property conveyancing lawyer is wholly prepared for finishing the transaction in the reduced time frame as conventionally required by the auction conditions.

Q.

Is it important that I get a chancel search? I am purchasing a Hellesdon maisonette on the same road as an ecclesiastical parish.

A.

The Law Lords decision in a landmark case 10 years ago confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Parochial Church Councils in Hellesdon must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. Church properties in this area include St Mary, St Michael and St Paul / Coronation Hall.

Q.

We are buying in Hellesdon on a newly development brownfield site. Could the topsoil be contaminated by industrial waste like lead (Pb)?

A.

Restrictions exist in order to limit top-soil contamination, decades after exposure the effect of some contaminants can be felt. Metal contamination of top-soil in Hellesdon is more likely to occur near ex-industrial sites or ex-landfills. Data on other contaminants, like groundwater contaminants like bleach, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Can we find out if the property we are buying is in a conservation area?

A.

Areas considered to be of architectural or historic interest, like picturesque villages, may be designated as conservation areas. You may wish to contact the council for more detail, but your lawyer will investigate the impact of conservation areas or other planning restrictions.

Q.

How early do you need to instruct a conveyancer to act on our purchase?

A.

The straightforward answer is, the faster you instruct the better. Promptly instructing a conveyancing firm for your Hellesdon transaction for a sale allows information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer, whereas if you are buying you will the details of your Hellesdon solicitor ready when you make an offer.
