Q.

I need to find a cheap solicitor quote to sell freehold property. What should be watch out for?

A.

Many online and high street firms advertise so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra fees are frequently hidden in the small print. This small print is often not read by sellers in a hurry. Any costs included in terms of engagement ought to be reasonable and come into force only if your lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A quote must also state the disbursements to be paid.

Q.

When you are purchasing a Helston property on the same road as land owned by the church, should I get a chancel search?

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Helston properties is likely to exist. A solicitor will be able to advise further. Churches in the local area include Ashton The Annunciation, Breage St Breaca and St Michael.

Q.

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax in Helston is based on the valuation. For a home purchased for £112000, stamp duty is £0 (information accurate 15/01/2013).

Q.

I am purchasing a medieval barn conversion in the parish of Duloe. Will a chancel search be necessary?

A.

Whether you are buying a home in Helston or elsewhere in the county, the solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search is ordered. Through some Parochial Church Councils have taken the decision to charge chancel repairs on new owners of lay rectorships, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will continue to be unaffected.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process should we instruct a conveyancing solicitor to handle our sale?

A.

The short answer is, the sooner the better, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks that can begin very early in the process. Prompt instruction of a solicitor to act for you on your Helston transaction could mitigate the chance of your sale or purchase falling though.

Q.

There are a lot of books about handling the legal work when buying and selling a maisonette , Is it a money saving idea to enact the all of the legal work on our own?

A.

Hypothetically there is absolutely no argument why you shouldn't engage in the conveyancing yourself.

The truth is however that a Helston lawyer handles a huge number of jobs including interpreting protocol forms and interpreting the lease many of which require a skilled professional.

Q.

Would acquiring a Homebuyer Report be required when buying property?

A.

It is firmly advised that most purchasers instruct a home surveyor to undertake a survey when purchasing in Helston. A range defects have a negative impact on a property, which include dry rot or cracks around door frames, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.
