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.

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.

Are there many purchasers in Ketton gazumped?

A.

This occurs when a house seller accepts an offer and then rejects it in favour of a second purchaser's offer. It could happen only days prior

to exchange. The chance of getting gazumped exists for almost any purchase. Instructing a fast, efficient solicitor as soon as possible is a key first step to reducing this risk.

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.

What causes conveyancing to have so many delays?

A.

Ketton conveyancing may be lengthy, Homeward Legal, however, seek to reduce their impact by pushing all parties involved. Reasons for delay include slow third parties such as landlords or managing agents.

Q.

For a residence valued at £909000, how is stamp duty calculated?

A.

Stamp Duty will depend on the property's value. It is £36360 on a £909000 house (information accurate 01/03/2013).

Q.

How do I uncover more info on the standard of the conservation areas in Ketton?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, have created details in relation to the state of repair of conservation areas as well as the trend. Conservation area concerns including what can be demolished, satellite dishes or ugly parking meters etc. are governed by South Kesteven.

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.
