Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? We need a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Hertford.

A.

Numerous solicitors promote supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional charges will be included in the small print. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What will our conveyancing searches cost?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches can vary greatly, depending on the searches required by your lender. Searches are paid to a third party.

Q.

Our purchase will complete on 10th May, how is stamp duty calculated?

A.

The Stamp Duty you pay will depend on several factors, most importantly the purchase price. For a property sold for £406000, the SDLT rate is £12180.

Q.

How is Hertford contaminated land identified?

A.

Property could be contaminated by many natural and human-influenced issues, such as infilled land and air pollution. An environmental search can give more clarity. Contamination in Hertford can be caused by local waste sites, such as Bunkers Hill Quarry, Lower Hatfield Road, Hertfordshire, SG13 8LF.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Hertford?

A.

Hertford is located in East Hertfordshire District Council, The Causeway, Bishop's Stortford, Hertfordshire, CM23 2EN, phone: 01279 655 261

Q.

Might our conveyancing quote cover any hidden charges?

A.

We never hide any hidden charges to carry out standard conveyancing. Sometimes a large volume of additional work is required, such as purchase of the freehold, but your conveyancing solicitor will make you aware of these.

Q.

Do you state taking action to circumvent paying HMRC stamp duty?

A.

SDLT is generally payable on homes priced at over one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. We strongly advise against any form of stamp duty reduction. These schemes are expensive and can be very unlikely to succeed. There have been several government initiatives, however, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers. A conveyancing solicitor should confirm whether you are eligible.

Q.

I am buying a period maisonette in one of the Hertford conservation area. How do we locate data on the state of repair of the Hertford conservation area?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, now maintain details in relation to the state of conservation areas in addition to the trend of the area. Conservation areas in Hertford are nominated by the local East Hertfordshire planning authority, who police things like area development to the halting of poorly maintained public spaces.
