Q.

We are trying to find low cost conveyancing in Honiton. How do we get a quote?

A.

Many online and high street firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing, but extra fees will be included in the terms of engagement. This small print is often not read by homeowners in a hurry. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should also be included on any quote for conveyancing in Honiton

Q.

For a house valued at £325000. How is stamp duty tax assessed?

A.

The rate of stamp duty which will be owed will depend on several factors, including the house's value. On a £325000 property, stamp duty will be £9750.

Q.

Can we find out whether the property we are buying is in a conservation area?

A.

Parts of Honiton considered be of historic or architectural significance, like country house estates, may be designated as conservation areas. You may wish to contact the local authority for more information, but your solicitor will address this during the conveyancing process.

Q.

What actions can I take to hold off paying for stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is usually due for houses sold for over £125,000. Stamp duty avoidance should not be considered when purchasing in Honiton, as such schemes are expensive and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100%

of the stamp duty amount owed. There have been a range of legitimate initiatives, however, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers. Your solicitor will advise as to your eligibility.

Q.

Is obtaining landlord's consent to assignment of lease passed on at cost?

A.

Comparing conveyancing quotes is not always easy, given the various definitions different firms use to describe the same thing. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in your quote.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if I plan to buy in the parish of Arlington?

A.

Regardless of the Honiton parish you are buying in, the solicitor instructed to handle the transaction may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. Through some parish councils have exercised their right to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, there is no way to be certain that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not continue to be so. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Has antimony ever contaminated land in Honiton?

A.

Government policy is in place to control pollution, waste, water and chemical contamination. The local authority for Honiton will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

For fast conveyancing to buy a £209k house, what should we aim for to speed up our transaction?
