Q.

How do we get a cheap solicitor to own a residence?

A.

Several solicitors offer cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. This small print is often not read by buyers in a hurry. Extra fees should be reasonable. They only be applied if the lawyer is required to complete extra work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A quote should list costs to be paid to third parties, e.g. the Land Registry, (disbursements).

Q.

As a consequence of the worrying amount of flooding in the UK in April 2012 we are concerned that flood searches aren't sufficient?

A.

Conveyancing and environmental searches conducted by the Herefordshire solicitor will also include a far more in depth flood search if required.

If you remain still concerned why not visit a local resident.

Q.

Do I need a chancel liability search? We are buying a Herefordshire home near a 13th Century rectory.

A.

As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Herefordshire which was once owned by a 'lay rectors' can be liable for repairs to churches. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced.

Q.

What does 'gazumping' really mean?

A.

Gazumping happens when a seller accepts an offer, only to dismiss it, opting for a better offer. It may happen weeks into a sale. The danger of gazumping exists for almost any purchase. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct your solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer.

Q.

If I am intending to buy in the parish of Lea, will it be necessary to get a chancel search?

A.

Your conveyancing lawyer could advise that a chancel search be ordered, regardless of the parish where the building being bought is found. Chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the current owners of a building where church councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

We are buying a renovated building in one of the Herefordshire conservation area. How do we find more data on the state of repair?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage now maintain records of the condition of conservation areas along with the trend of the area. Local Herefordshire conservation areas are nominated by the local authority () who govern things like what can be demolished to the impediment of traffic signs.

Q.

The owner has unfortunately added unsuitable satellite dishes on the maisonette in Herefordshire which we think might infringe local conservation area guidelines

A.

Your instructed property lawyer should check if the property is within a conservation area and whether any modifications have required permission from the planning authority.

Q.

We plan to complete on around 10th May, how is stamp duty calculated?

A.

Stamp Duty is calculated with reference to several factors, including the value of the property, and whether it is in a 'disadvantaged area'. For a house worth £902000, stamp duty is £36080.*
