A property solicitor will liaise with the governing Rochford local council to ascertain the relevant council tax band and rates, which should subsequently be detailed in the title report. Up-to-date rates for residents of Hockley are set out on the Rochford local authority site. As of 31 October 2012 rates are as follows:
Your property lawyer should confirm that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish where the home being bought is located. In older areas of Hockley, chancel repair dues can be collected on current owners of a home where parish councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.Q.
In fact we are familiar with local and national auctions and often act for buyers at auction. It is prudent for bidders to choose a SRA regulated lawyer as fast as possible to allow enough time for a title report of the legal pack well before the day of the auction. Following the property auction date your instructed property lawyer is fully focused on finishing the legal work inside a month as typically required .Q.
Our solicitors never hide any additional fees to transfer a property. Under the circumstances, it may be that a separate matter is also required, purchase of the freehold, for example, but you will be made aware of any fees relating to this.Q.
Most solicitors tend to recommend that home buyers and sellers put off organising removals until formal exchange of contracts because typically the firm moving date will not have been set. For a local Essex company A Man With A Van, Northcroft/New Park Rd, Hockley, SS5 5JX Tel: 01702 205320.Q.
Stamp Duty Land Tax is payable on property purchases priced at over £125,000. We strongly advise against any stamp duty scheme. These schemes are expensive and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.Q.
It is suggested that purchasers book a house surveyor to perform a survey. It is a fact that there are a range of concerns that can negatively affect a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address, for example cracks around door frames and wet rot.
