Kingsley services information

Kingsley's closest station is Blythe Bridge. Kingsley's closest airport is Manchester Terminals 1 & 3 Airport (27 miles).

Cheadle is a nearby hospital.

Q.

What do you charge for the legal fees on a £379,000 property? We are looking for a low cost conveyancing estimate.

A.

The confusion over this point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra costs can increase your final bill. Any additional costs ought to be clearly defined.

Q.

I am on a very tight budget - Can doing the conveyancing on a DIY basis without a Kingsley solicitor possibly save any money?

A.

Theoretically speaking there are absolutely no arguments at all why a buyer cant opt to complete the greater majority of the legal work on your own.

The truth is however that a property solicitor in Kingsley takes care of a significant number of assignments ranging from checking redemption statements or identifying the most appropriate searches some of which need training.

Q.

What will the council tax cost for a period Band F flat in Kingsley?

A.

The respective band should in most cases be highlighted as part of the conveyancing report on title, and by the local council Up-to-date rates for residents of Kingsley are listed at the Cheshire West and Chester local authority site. Currently (30 November 2012) rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £993.00
  • Band B - £1,159.00
  • Band C - £1,324.00
  • Band D - £1,490.00
  • Band E - £1,821.00
  • Band F - £2,152.00
  • Band G - £2,483.00
  • Band H - £2,979.00

Q.

My wife and I are purchasing a residence in Kingsley. How do I verify if the residence is in a designated conservation area?

A.

Areas considered to be of architectural merit, like mining villages, may be recorded as conservation areas. Your lawyer will advise further and address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area.

Q.

Do I need a home surveyor to examine the Kingsley property purchase?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors firmly suggest that all buyers order a property survey if you are intending to buy in Kingsley. There are a wide range of concerns which affect a property, which will not be addressed during a property valuation. These can include ground movement and cavity wall tie failure.

Q.

In what ways does my conveyancing solicitor in Kingsley report back on the potential risk of a flood in the Kingsley area?

A.

A key component in the conveyancing procedure of buying a property involves the lawyer making an application for property conveyancing searches that set out detail with respect to risk of flooding in Kingsley. Furthermore, your solicitor in Kingsley may advise a more detailed (e.g. Homcheck) involved flood search.

Q.

We are buying a property in High Offley. Is a chancel search necessary?

A.

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to exact chancel repairs on new owners of land subject to chancel liability, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will remain liability-free for new owners, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

Following recent news about the major flooding in 2012 in the Midlands I am questioning if flood risk searches aren't sufficient?

A.

A lawyer in Kingsley will get environmental searches if the environmental search determines a local Kingsley flood risk.

You may be able to speak to a local resident to gain additional peace of mind.
