Q.

How do we find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Horsforth?

A.

Many online and high street firms offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra fees can increase the final bill. The quote should also state any disbursements to be paid. Extra charges which are listed in the solicitor's terms should be fair. They only apply in cases where the lawyer must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Would the property's fixtures and fittings include things such as external light fixtures?

A.

In general, there is no absolute definition of 'fixtures and fittings'. This is regularly overlooked, making the approval of the list of fixtures and fittings essential.

Q.

What do we need to calculate stamp duty, how much should we pay on a £97000 house?

A.

The SDLT you must pay will depend on a small range of considerations, most importantly the purchase price. It is £0 on a £97000 property in Horsforth.*

Q.

I am buying a sixties flat in one of the Horsforth conservation area. Where does one find more information relating to the present standard of repair?

Q.

Is a Local Authority search a disbursement or fee?

A.

It may not be obvious whether an item on your quote is a disbursement or a fee. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on at cost.

Q.

Is contaminated land an issue for any homes in Horsforth?

A.

A range of contaminants caused by naturally-occurring factors may affect property, and an environmental search should clarify to what extent a property is affected by contaminants such as potentially contaminative use of nearby land. Blackhill Quarry, Kings Road, West Yorkshire, LS16 9JN is one such potential source of local contamination.
