Q.

How do we get the best conveyancing rates in Kegworth for a £273,000 house?

A.

Many firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional fees may inflate your final invoice. Extra charges listed in your solicitor's terms should be fair. They be applicable solely where your lawyer must complete unanticipated additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A conveyancing quote should also clearly state any disbursements.Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

For a fast exchange and completion to buy a £837,000 property, what do we need to do?

A.

Experienced buyers will tell you that faster conveyancing is crucial to instruct a proactive, diligent solicitor. There are numerous tasks you can also do to get moving sooner. These include:

  • asking for property searches to be ordered immediately
  • replying to your solicitor by phone, fax or email
  • clarifying your mortgage lender's requirements

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Kegworth?

A.

Kegworth is located in North West Leicestershire District Council, Council Offices, Coalville, Leicestershire, LE67 3FJ, contact: 01530 454 546

Q.

Our lender will be the Royal Bank of Scotland, what will I need to check?

A.

Some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', which may result in increased conveyancing costs for purchasers. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of many mortgage lenders.

Q.

Is manganese (Mn) contamination frequently found to affect Kegworth soil?

A.

Measures are taken throughout Kegworth to identify and remediate topsoil contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as groundwater contamination and trichloroethylene, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

The current owner looks to have fitted stone cladding to the house in Kegworth which I think may contravene local conservation area guidelines

A.

The lawyer should see whether your proposed purchase is inside a conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have appropriate permissions from the Erewash planning authority.

Q.

We are going to buy a unique house in the middle of a conservation area. How do we locate more information in relation to the standard of upkeep?

A.

Local conservation areas are designated by the local authority (Erewash) who oversee conservation area concerns from paths and footpaths to the prevention of excessive road signs. English Heritage, a government body, keep information about the state of repair of conservation areas in Kegworth and throughout England in addition to the vulnerability.

Q.

Would you state taking action to avoid paying for stamp duty?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is generally due on property priced at over 125,000 pounds. Homeward Legal do not recommend any stamp duty mitigation. Such schemes are highly expensive and unreliable.
