Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? I need to find affordable conveyancing.

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many homeowners, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many solicitors offer so-called cheap conveyancing, but additional charges are frequently hidden in the small print. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Are there many purchasers in Lavenham gazumped?

A.

This occurs when a home owner accepts an offer, only to dismiss it, opting for another buyer's higher offer. Gazumping may happen even months into a purchase. Though gazumping is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a risk. Instructing a proactive solicitor as soon as possible is a key first step to reducing this risk.

Q.

What will the council tax cost me on a investment Band an apartment in Lavenham?

A.

Your property's band will almost always be reported in the title report, as well as by the governing local authority Correct rates for properties in Lavenham are set out in detail online at the Babergh local authority website. At the time of authoring (13 October 2012) rates are:

  • Band A - £1,003.00

  • Band E - £1,838.00
  • Band F - £2,172.00
  • Band G - £2,506.00
  • Band H - £3,008.00

Q.

Do I need a chancel search when you are buying a Lavenham house close to a church?

A.

Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Lavenham Church council. Parochial Church Councils in Lavenham must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. Lavenham ecclesiastical properties where a chancel search may be necessary include St Peter and St Paul.

Q.

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

A.

The neighbourhoods located near Lavenham will include numerous conservation areas. The council will provide more details about local conservation areas, and the solicitor handling your purchase will discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.

Q.

Where do we uncover additional info on the standard of the conservation areas in Lavenham?

A.

Local conservation areas, such as the upkeep of public spaces or advertising hoardings are police by the local authority (Babergh). English Heritage have assembled a detailed list of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in addition to the trend.

Q.

How soon do we need to arrange a conveyancer?

A.

With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, the sooner the better. Instructing a firm early for a sale means that relevant information can be sourced sooner (this is particularly true for leasehold properties), whereas if you are buying you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer.

Q.

Which of the lender panels in Lavenham are your solicitors on?
