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.

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.

When in the process do we need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Kingsley?

A.

With few exceptions, the sooner you instruct a conveyancing solicitor, the better, as the legal work can commence very early in the process. Some groups suggest waiting before instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but opting to delay can jeopardise your sale or purchase.

Can you advise how to defer paying stamp duty in Kingsley?

Stamp duty avoidance is not recommended for purchases in Kingsley, as such schemes are often uneconomical and unreliable.

Q.

With a house ready to buy, with no mortgage, how do we ensure fast conveyancing in Kingsley?

A.

Primarily, contacting a proactive solicitor is crucial to a fast conveyancing transaction. When identifying an appropriate a solicitor, : Are they 'no move, no fee'? This can incentivise a faster transaction. Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote? Which communication methods do they use?

Q.

Will I need to get a chancel search? We are purchasing a Kingsley property next to a 1200s 'church furlong'.

A.

In Kingsley, where land was once owned by a lay impropriators, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards the cost of maintenance of specific local church buildings. A chancel search addresses if such a liability exists. Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Kingsley church properties include All Saints, S.Werburgh and St John the Evangelist.

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.

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.
