Q.

How do we find low cost conveyancing in Ledbury?

A.

Several firms claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional costs may be added into the terms and conditions. Additional costs listed in the small print should be fair and reasonable and only apply to matters if the lawyer is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

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

A.

It is not always clear whether an itemised charge is a fee or disbursement. This charge is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your quote.

Q.

Can you confirm which Ledbury lenders your conveyancing solicitors work with. Whose panels are you on?

A.

Most lenders in Ledbury are on our solicitors' panels. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Ledbury include Topaz, 19a High St, Ledbury, HR8 1DS, and Direct Lending Centre, 75 The Homend, Ledbury, HR8 1BP. The solicitor handling your conveyancing transaction will be able to deal with the particular enquiries and searches your lender requires.

Q.

What will the Ledbury property solicitor advise if the home I hope to purchase is inside the boundary of a conservation

Q.

area in Forest of Dean local authority which appears to have conspicuous stone cladding fitted?

A.

Forest of Dean council LLC1 searches carried out by a property lawyer will ascertain whether the property is inside a designated conservation area proof of planning consent for additions to the property will be required.

Q.

We are buying on a new development brownfield site. Could the topsoil be contaminated by industrial waste like rubidium (Rb)?

A.

Some metal contamination may have occurred throughout Ledbury, but contaminated land areas are labelled as such if the danger to the environment is judged to be too great. Metal contamination of topsoil in Ledbury is more likely to occur near waste treatment sites. Data on other contaminants, like herbicides, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

May charges for the conveyancing include any extra costs?

A.

Regrettably, buyers must be on their guard for considerable extra costs hidden in small print. We will not charge any additional fees. Some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.

Q.

Will a property solicitor in Ledbury do any property on the Gloucestershire period semi-detached townhouse we are buying?

A.

The regular conveyancing protocol will be to get Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environment Search and, depending on certain criteria, less common searches, which might include Commons Registration (CON290).

Q.

Will we need a home buyers survey?

A.

It is heavily suggested that all buyers book a survey if you are intending to buy in Ledbury. It is a fact that there are a wide range of defects which can affect a property, which include settlement, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.
