Q.

How do we get a cheap solicitor in Kimberley for buying a residence?

A.

This affects many property buyers and sellers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process, and many conveyancers promote cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional costs are frequently hidden in the small print. Busy, stressed property buyers and sellers ignore these terms at their peril. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

Rooftop Mortgages is going to be our lender - what will we need to be aware of?

A.

House buyers should be aware that, over the last two years, some lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel'. For property purchasers, this can result in significantly higher legal costs. Homeward Legal can act for many lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay your lender's legal costs.

Q.

How much can conveyancing searches cost?

A.

The cost of searches can vary. They are paid to a third party, and will be charged at cost.

Q.

Does your solicitors firm administer auction conveyancing in Kimberley?

Our company is highly knowledgeable with auction buyers and sellers. Traditionally unusually constructed houses e. g. tenanted properties, are sold at property auctions which demand increased due diligence. Solicitors therefore suggest that buyers select their conveyancing solicitor in advance of the auction day for a review.

After the day of bidding your solicitor is thoroughly able to concentrate on finishing the purchase within a as tight time frame as required .

Q.

In what ways can the Kimberley property lawyer report back on the risk of a flood in Kimberley for an Edwardian home we are intending to purchase?

A.

Your conveyancer conducts official conveyancing and environmental searches, which include Kimberley flood risk area data. At the time of writing (27/02/13) reports on the Environment Agency website don’t reveal any active flood warnings in the Kimberley area.

Q.

Please advise how to get out of paying out for stamp duty on our Kimberley property?

A.

Stamp duty avoidance is not advised, as such schemes are often uneconomical and often likely to fail. There have been certain government initiatives, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'.

Q.

If my family are buying in Kimberley, should I get a search for chancel liability?

A.

Property owners near to specific local church buildings are expected to pay for repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Several sources are used to determine liability in Kimberley, including maps of Kimberley's parish boundaries. Ecclesiastical properties in the area include Holy Trinity and St Peter.

Q.

We are buying on a brownfield site. What should we do regarding manganese (Mn) soil contamination?

A.

There are considerable regulations to limit soil contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as chlorinated solvents, will be included in an environmental search.
