Q.

What will the overall charge be on the sale of a £571,000 property? We are looking for a discount conveyancing quote.

A.

Many online and high street property lawyers purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional fees are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

At what point should we get a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

The straightforward answer is, the sooner the better, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks that can be carried out straight away. Instructing your solicitor sooner could mitigate the chance of the transaction aborting.

Q.

Does the report on title prepared by the Keyworth lawyer advise us on the cost of council tax on a flat before exchange of contracts?

A.

The solicitor will liaise with the relevant council to ascertain the up to date council tax charges which will be set out in the title report.

The latest council tax charges for Keyworth are listed on the Rushcliffe council website. As of 26 July 2012 rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £1,069.00
    >
  • Band B - £1,248.00
  • Band C - £1,426.00
  • Band D - £1,604.00
  • Band E - £1,960.00
  • Band F - £2,317.00
  • Band G - £2,673.00
  • Band H - £3,208.00

Q.

I have read about handling the legal work when selling a maisonette. Would it be wise to carry out the conveyancing myself without help.?

A.

Hypothetically speaking there is no argument at all why you should not complete the your own conveyancing yourself. The truth is however that a Keyworth conveyancer typically handles a large number of skilled tasks such as chasing deeds or checking the lease many of which require a qualified solicitor. AT any rate legal practices are made responsible to take out indemnity insurance to insulate you from any carelessness.

Q.

Do I need to choose the solicitors firm suggested by our agent?

A.

Estate agent referrals are a common route for buyers to find a solicitor, however, these referrals need to be considered carefully, as an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best value for you.

Q.

If we are purchasing in the parish of Lenton, do we need a chancel search?

A.

The solicitor instructed to handle the transaction could advise a chancel search. Through some Parochial Church Councils have decided to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, there is no way to be certain that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not continue to be so. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Keyworth?

A.

Keyworth is located in Rushcliffe Community Contact Centre, Rectory Road, West Bridgford, Nottingham, NG2 6BN, contact: 0115 981 9911

Q.

I have taken out a conveyancing quote from you. May we be billed any hidden fees?

A.

We never charge any hidden extra costs for standard conveyancing work.
