Q.

Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £581,000 property? We are trying to find a discount conveyancing quote.

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this issue catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional charges are often hiding in the terms of engagement that homeowners often do not check. Costslisted in the small print needs to be fair. They come into force only if your lawyer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

We are buying a property where the seller looks to have fitted roof antenna on the flat in Kirkby Stephen which I think might possibly infringe conservation area rules

Your property lawyer will make enquiries to identify whether the property is located within a designated conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have appropriate permission from the local authority.

Q.

Should I get a chancel search? We are buying a Kirkby Stephen house on the same street as parsonage grounds.

A.

Some owners in Kirkby Stephen can be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance of an old church building. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land in Kirkby Stephen must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Churches in the area which may give rise to chancel liability include Parish Church.

Q.

Is a property survey required if we are purchasing property?

A.

It is strongly recommended that you book a surveyor. Numerous issues can affect a property. These can include chimney defects. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

Is there something I can do to hold off paying SDLT?

A.

SDLT must be paid on property sold for more than £125,000. Stamp duty mitigation scheme must be treated with caution by purchasers in Kirkby Stephen, as such schemes are expensive and often likely to fail. There have been a number of official schemes, such as disadvantaged area relief.

Q.

How is Kirkby Stephen contaminated land identified?

A.

Residential property would be contaminated by numerous natural and human-influenced issues, such as local historic industrial processes or nearby waste management facilities. An environmental search should offer more information.

Q.

How can we check that a house is in a designated conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas pinpoint neighbourhoods of architectural merit. Living in a conservation area can mean protection for trees and other flora, but the restrictions adds to upkeep costs. A conveyancing solicitor will confirm potential liability for unauthorised works.
