Q.

We are trying to find fixed rate conveyancing. How do I get a quote?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this issue affects many home owners who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many conveyancers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional fees will be included in small print. This small print is often not read by home owners in a hurry. Your Langstone conveyancing quote ought to list costs to be paid to third parties, including search providers, (disbursements). Any additional fees included in your solicitor's terms needs to be fair.

Q.

What sort of scrutiny in respect to the risk and history of floods around Newport will a Langstone conveyancer report back to us on a seventies maisonette we are going to purchase?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor will conduct environmental searches, which include Langstone historical flood risk data. In addition your Langstone property solicitor might possibly suggest a more involved (e.g. Landmark) involved flood search.

Q.

What is the council tax on a Thirties converted Band C home in Langstone?

A.

You will be advised on your new home's band with the conveyancing report on title.

The latest tax charges for properties in Langstone are tabled at the Havant council site. At the time of writing on 28 July 2012 the different rates are:

  • Band A - £959.00

  • Band F - £2,078.00
  • Band G - £2,397.00

Q.

Is a survey necessary if we are purchasing a house or flat, regardless of its age?

A.

Homeward Legal recommend that most purchasers arrange a property surveyor. A range defects can affect a property. These can include chimney defects. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

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

A.

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Langstone, but contaminated land areas are labelled as such if the danger to the environment is judged to be too great. Data on many contaminants, such as water contaminants such as household chemicals and acidic compounds, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Would you recommend that we get a chancel search if we are buying in Langstone?

A.

There are 15000 ecclesiastical parishes across the country. Property owners within some of these may be required to contribute towards the repair of a local church. Terms used in a property's name, like 'rectory', may indicate chancel liability. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Langstone church properties include St Nicholas.

Q.

For fast legal work to buy a £ 142,000 house, what can we do to speed up our move?

A.

It is a truism that faster conveyancing is the key to is to use a proactive and experienced conveyancer. There are a range of tasks you as the purchaser could do to get moving sooner, such as, answering any queries raised by your conveyancer as soon as possible, pushing the conveyancer to begin enquiries as soon as possible and arranging any finances require to complete the purchase.

Q.

We are buying in Langstone. Are there any conservation areas?

A.

Conservation areas protect streets and neighbourhoods of architectural or historic interest. Living in a conservation area can mean better maintained homes and gardens, but the restrictions can result in the buyer inheriting liability of unauthorised changes. A property solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities.
