Q.

How do we find a cheap solicitor quote for purchasing a home?

A.

Many property lawyers claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms, left unread by preoccupied homeowners

Q.

Harpenden Building Society is our mortgage lender, what will we need to know?

A.

A small number of lenders have decreased the number of firms on their approved panel, potentially creating greater conveyancing costs for purchasers. We, fortunately, are able to act for all large CML-approved lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

I am planning on buying a converted investment property in a designated conservation areas. How do we lay my hands on information about the state of upkeep of the area?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, have assembled a list of the state of conservation areas in addition to the vulnerability of the area. Conservation areas are created by the local authority (Pembrokeshire) who govern things like property boundaries to the stoppage of street guard rails.

Q.

We are intending to purchase a church rectory in Northfleet. Are we advised to get a chancel search?

A.

A solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered, whichever parish in which the building being purchased is located. In Higham Wood's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the current owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have previously chosen not to do so.

Q.

I am concerned about the council tax rates on a terraced property in Higham Wood, what are they?

A.

As a rule the conveyancing report on title should contain the appropriate Pembrokeshire council tax band. Correct rates for homes in Higham Wood are set out on the Pembrokeshire council site. At the time of authoring, 05 March 2013, the different rates are:

  • Band A - £629.73
  • Band B - £734.69
  • Band C - £839.64
  • Band D - £944.60
  • Band E - £1,154.51
  • Band F - £1,364.42
  • Band G - £1,574.33
  • Band H - £1,889.20

Q.

Do I need to employ a solicitors firm who works with by the estate agent in Broxbourne?

A.

An agent in Broxbourne will usually endorse a solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, some agents choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

Is simultaneous exchange and completion a disbursement or fee?

A.

A good quote should clearly state all fees and disbursements. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a quote.

Q.

What is the right point to I reserve the home removal firm?

A.

Our recommendation is for home movers to wait before booking the removals until you and the other side has set the final move date that normally occurs once signing of contracts. Local removals firms include Van Man UK, 33 Estridge Way, Tonbridge, TN10 4JT Tel: 0800 860 0318.
