Q.

How do I get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

This catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. Busy, stressed buyers and sellers ignore these terms at their peril. Extra fees included in the terms should be fair. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

Do you recommend taking precautions to avoid paying SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty reduction is not advised. Such schemes are costly and can be very unlikely to succeed.

Q.

Should we get a home buyers survey for this house purchase?

A.

It is strongly advised that buyers arrange a home surveyor. There can be a wide range of problems which have a negative impact on a property, that a lender's valuation survey, for example, will not cover. These include roof spread.

Q.

If we are buying near Ketton, in the parish of Manton, do we need a chancel search?

A.

The conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search be taken out. In older areas of Ketton, chancel repair may be imposed on owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. In the event that chancel liability

may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

Does Homeward Legal look after the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Ketton?

A.

Our firm is highly knowledgeable with auction buyers and sellers. Normally specialist buildings like live work flats, are listed in auctions which tend to require added review. Lawyers therefore recommend that buyers decide on a SRA regulated lawyer before the property auction for a full review of the auction pack. After the auction day arrives your dedicated conveyancing lawyer is utterly focused on completing the legal side of things within the reduced time frame as required .

Q.

If we are buying in Ketton, will you need a chancel liability search?

A.

The result of Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank in 2003 reaffirmed that 'lay impropriators' of property must subsidise church repairs. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Ketton Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Ketton churches include St Mary the Virgin.

Q.

I would like to know which Ketton lenders your lawyers work with. Which panels are your solicitors members of?

A.

We can work alongside most lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Ketton, such as List David Mortgage Consultants Ltd, 1 Elm Close, Market Deeping, Peterborough, PE6 8JN, Mortgage & Financial Advice Centre, 147 Oundle Rd, Peterborough, PE2 9QZ, and Appollo Mortgage Services, Po Box 115, Bourne, PE10 9XF.

Q.

What can a Ketton property lawyer advise if the property is situated in a South Kesteven council conservation area that possibly has unsightly removal of chimney stacks installed?

A.

South Kesteven planning authority LLC1 searches conducted by your Ketton property lawyer as part of the conveyancing will find out the existence of suitable permission for alterations to the property.
