Commuting to Hornsea? ;

Arram station is almost 10 miles from Hornsea and Kirmington, Humberside International Airport is 24 miles from Hornsea.

Hornsea, Cottage is a nearby hospital to Hornsea.

Q.

What do you charge for the legal fees on a £331k house? We need to find a fixed rate conveyancing quote.

A.

This issue catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra fees will be included in small print.

Q.

Is selenium contamination frequently found to affect Hornsea soil?

A.

Extensive measures are taken across Hornsea and the region to rectify soil contamination. Other sources of contaminated land include polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs) and groundwater contaminants like bleach.

Q.

Would you recommend that I get a chancel search? I am purchasing next to rectory grounds in Hornsea.

A.

Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Hornsea property likely to be affected. Following a change in the law, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Hornsea church properties which may give rise to chancel liability include St Nicholas.

Q.

How do we avoid paying SDLT rates?

A.

We strongly advise against any form of stamp duty mitigation. These schemes are expensive and often likely to fail. There have been certain official schemes, however, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'. Your solicitor will advise as to your eligibility.

Q.

What does 'fixtures and fittings' relate to?

A.

Generally speaking, fixtures are permanently fixed to walls, floors or ceilings securely and fixtures are free-standing. For many transactions, this is neglected, making it essential that the list of fixtures and fittings to be sold with the property is agreed early.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Hornsea?

A.

Hornsea is located in East Riding of Yorkshire Council, County Hall, Beverley, Yorkshire, HU17 9BA, contact: 01482 393 944

Q.

Should I get a property survey?

A.

It is highly recommended that Hornsea property purchasers book a surveyor to perform a survey. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of defects that can affect a property. These include cracked roof tiles and cavity wall tie failure. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

I am buying a home in Fraisthorpe. Will a chancel search be important?

A.

Your solicitor instructed to handle the transaction could recommend a chancel search. Although some church councils have decided to charge chancel repairs on the owners of affected property, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not automatically be the case for future owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
