Q.

How do we find low cost conveyancing?

A.

Many firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional charges may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any fees found in the terms needs to be fair.

Q.

We are intending to purchase with Britannia - is there anything we need to be aware of?

A.

Some lenders have reduced the number of firms able to act for them. We will act for most lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay the lender's legal fees.

Q.

Would getting a home buyers survey be a good idea if we are purchasing a house?

A.

It is heavily suggested that purchasers in High Peak order a house survey when purchasing in High Peak. There are a range of problems that affect a property, including cracks around door frames and wet rot. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

Should I instruct the firm of solicitors suggested by the local agent?

A.

The agent may suggest a solicitor, however, such referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as an agent may select the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

As a consequence of the major flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands I am concerned that environmental searches might not be sufficient?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor in High Peak will carry out rigorous flood searches if the first conveyancing searches determine a any kind of risk of flooding in High Peak

You may be able to also contact a neighbour of the property to get added confidence.

Q.

Which local authority looks after High Peak?

A.

Q.

How much can the charges for our searches come to?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches for a High Peak purchase significantly varies. Searches are disbursements, and will be charged at cost.

Q.

What can we do to defer paying for stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

SDLT is payable on property over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty mitigation should not be considered when purchasing in High Peak, as such schemes are often uneconomical and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later. There have been a small number of official schemes, however, such as disadvantaged area relief.
