Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? We are looking for fixed rate Kingston upon Hull conveyancing.

A.

Many law firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional costs are often hiding in the small print. Your conveyancing quote should also clearly state any disbursements. Feeswhich are listed in terms of engagement should be fair and clearly defined. Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.

Q.

I am intending to buy a medieval barn conversion in Sutton on Derwent. Will it be necessary to get a chancel search?

A.

Whether you are buying a building in Kingston upon Hull or elsewhere in the county, the lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered. Although some Parochial Church Councils have decided to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before will continue to be free from liability. For property in the parish of Sutton on Derwent, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

We are buying on a brownfield land. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste like nickel?

A.

Effort is made in and around Kingston upon Hull to remediate soil contamination. The local authority for Kingston upon Hull will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

Do you confirm taking action to get out of paying stamp duty?

A.

We do not recommend clients arrange any stamp duty mitigation. These schemes are expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later and the total stamp duty tax may be payable. There have been a number of government-sponsored schemes, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers.

Q.

If I am buying a home on the same street as a 1300s vicarage in Kingston upon Hull, do you need to get a chancel search?

A.

The outcome of Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must contribute towards the cost of church repairs. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013.

Q.

My mortgage lender will be The Mortgage Business - is there anything I need to be aware of?

A.

Recently, a number of lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them. For house purchasers, this can result in significantly increased conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal can act for all large CML-approved lenders.

Q.

In about 6 weeks we are preparing to move out of our semi detached home in Kingston upon Hull to our new home in East Riding Of Yorkshire at what point to choose a removal company?

A.

We will advise that home sellers put off arranging removals until the point where exchange of contracts as beforehand a moving date wont have been decided. Local firms include Mac 1 Self Storage, 149 Wincolmlee, Hull, HU2 0PA Call: 01482 210773 or Mitchell The Mover, National House/Barmston St, Hull, HU2 0PJ Telephone: 01482 781085.

Q.

Will the title report prepared by the property lawyer in Kingston upon Hull provide details about the cost of the council tax on a Band F cottage prior to completing on the purchase?

A.

A solicitor will approach the local council to ascertain the most up to date council tax charges which will then be set out in the title report. Council tax charges for homes in Kingston upon Hull are set out on the local authority site.
