Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £303,000 house?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many homeowners paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many law firms advertise cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra costs will be included in the small print that homeowners often do not check. Additional costs should be fair and reasonable and be applicable if your lawyer must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements should also be clearly stated on your quote

Q.

Does my Ingatestone conveyancing solicitor do any conveyancing searches on the Essex Edwardian semi-detached home I want to buy?

A.

The regular procedure is to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environment Search and, depending on certain criteria, less common searches e.g. a Anti Money Laundering Search.

Q.

What kind of enquiries in respect to the risk of possible flooding at Essex will the Ingatestone solicitor give an account of?

A.

A vital component in the conveyancing protocol carried out when buying a property involves the conveyancing lawyer conducting environmental searches that go into details on the subject of Ingatestone flood risk.

Q.

Is mercury soil contamination likely in Ingatestone?

A.

There are extensive regulations imposed to prevent future soil contamination. Also considering issues such as polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs) and groundwater contaminants like silage, contaminants affecting Ingatestone property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

Is it wise to hold off paying SDLT rates?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is generally payable on houses priced at over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty mitigation should not be considered. These schemes are costly and can be very unlikely to succeed.

Q.

Should I make use of the solicitor referred by my estate agent?

A.

It is not uncommon for agents to endorse a law firm to handle your conveyancing. These referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as it may be the case that the agent recommends whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

The owner looks to have installed unsympathetic roof antenna to the property in Ingatestone which may break nearby conservation area guidelines

A.

Your solicitor is required to see whether the property is affected by a conservation area and whether any modifications have requisite consents from the local planning authority. If no authority consents be supplied, your solicitor will advise you of all options such as requesting an indemnity insurance policy or obtaining retrospective permission.

Q.

Is it necessary to get a chancel search if we are purchasing a apartment near an ecclesiastical parish in Ingatestone?

A.

Some owners in Ingatestone can be required to contribute towards upkeep of a church in the area. A chancel search checks that such a liability exists. Ingatestone ecclesiastical properties where a chancel search may be appropriate include Blackmore St Laurence, St Edmund & St Mary and Stock Harvard All Saints.
