Q.

Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £278,000 property? I am looking for discount conveyancing in Howden.

A.

Several solicitors claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing, but extra costs are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement which unwary homeowners fail to check. Extra charges found in terms and conditions ought to be fair and reasonable and only apply to matters if the solicitor is required to complete extra work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

A.

Even where some contamination has occurred in Howden, risk levels are usually low. Other sources of contaminated land include insecticides.

Q.

What are fixtures and fittings?

A.

House purchasers are frequently confused by the lack of detail regarding what fixtures and fittings are included. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

When should we speak to a solicitor?

In simple terms, as soon as possible, as there are several tasks which may be carried out immediately. Some groups suggest waiting before instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.

Q.

What will the Howden property solicitor recommend if the building we are buying is in a East Riding of Yorkshire council conservation area which seems to have inappropriate roof antenna installed?

A.

East Riding of Yorkshire local authority searches conducted by a property lawyer as part of the conveyancing should find out whether the Howden property a designated conservation area and evidence of Coal Authority consent for modifications will be requested.

Q.

Are costs for obtaining landlord's consent to alterations fees or disbursements?

A.

Unfortunately, some firms attempt to pass off additional costs as disbursements. It may be unclear whether a cost is a fee or not, and if it should be included. These costs are fees not disbursements. Consent can be difficult to arrange, but the fee may be included in your conveyancing quote.

Q.

We are purchasing a £99000 Howden home. How is stamp duty rates calculated?
