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.

The house in Kirkby Stephen being purchased is on a ex-industrial use land. Can the soil still be contaminated?

A.

Restrictions exist to curtail soil contamination, some contaminants, however, can impact the local environment years after exposure. Also considering issues such as water contaminants such as pesticides and hazardous gases, contaminants affecting Kirkby Stephen property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

Is the Stamp Duty Land Tax fee a fee or disbursement?

Comparing quotes is not always easy, considering differences in terminology. This charge is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a conveyancing quote.

Q.

If we are purchasing near Kirkby Stephen, in the parish of Ormside, do we need a chancel search?

A.

The solicitor should confirm that a chancel search is taken out. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on the current owners, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not continue to be so. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Why might conveyancing work in Kirkby Stephen require weeks?

A.

The Kirkby Stephen conveyancing process can be lengthy, we, however, aim to reduce the consequences of these delays wherever reasonable. Common delays include a slow firm acting for the lender.

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.

Q.

How do we calculate Stamp Duty Land Tax rates in Kirkby Stephen, and how much will it be on a £453000 house?
