Q.

How do I find the best rates for conveyancing in Ilfracombe for a £343,000 residence?

A.

This catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement, left unread by preoccupied property buyers and sellers Extra charges should be reasonable and clear. A quote should, in addition, define third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

What does a Ilfracombe conveyancing lawyer do when the house we are intending to buy is inside a local authority conservation area and has unauthorised stone cladding fitted?

A.

North Devon council search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) conducted by the solicitor in the process of the conveyancing will check if the property is within a conservation area and any evidence of council approval for alterations will be asked for.

Q.

Is it possible that some of the protected Ilfracombe conservation areas are designated as at risk?

A.

The list of the condition of Ilfracombes conservation areas is documented by English Heritage. This data are accessible at the English Heritage website: Ilfracombe is recorded as poor with medium vulnerability and deteriorating.

Q.

Do I need to employ the conveyancing solicitor who works with by my agent?

It is common for agents to endorse a law firm. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, some agents choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

What is the risk of gazumping?

A.

Gazumping happens when a property seller acknowledges an offer, only to dismiss it, opting for a better offer. It could happen only days prior to exchange. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a danger of being gazumped. Consider instructing an efficient solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.

Q.

Will my assigned conveyancing solicitor in Ilfracombe tell me about the amount to be paid of council tax for a Band G building before exchange of contracts?

A.

A property solicitor will write to the North Devon local authority to ascertain the applicable council tax rates, which will be written in the conveyancing report on title.

Correct rates for residents of Ilfracombe are listed on the North Devon council website. At the time of writing (18 December 2012) rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £1,040.00
  • Band B - £1,213.00
  • Band C - £1,386.00
  • Band D - £1,560.00
  • Band E - £1,906.00
  • Band F - £2,253.00
  • Band G - £2,599.00
  • Band H - £3,119.00

Q.

When in the conveyancing process should I get a solicitor to handle our sale?

A.

Whether buying or selling, the sooner you instruct a firm, the better, as conveyancing involves various tasks which may be performed very early in the process. Some authors suggest holding off instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.
