The property solicitor will always ascertain if the property is within a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have appropriate consents from the North East Derbyshire planning authority. In the event that no local authority consents be in evidence, your conveyancing solicitor will advise you of the options such as seeking an indemnity insurance or requesting retrospective approval from the appropriate local authority.

Q.

How is stamp duty calculated, what should we budget for a £514000 home?
