Leicestershire attractions

A.

East Midlands Aero Park Aviation Museum and East Midlands Aero Park Aviation Museum are in Leicestershire.

Q.

How do I find affordable conveyancing?

A.

This topic catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional charges are frequently hidden in the small print. Busy, stressed sellers and buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Any disbursements should be included on a Leicestershire conveyancing quote

Q.

When in the process do we need to instruct a solicitor to act for us?

A.

In the majority of situations, earlier is preferable. Promptly instructing a conveyancing solicitor for a purchase may mean that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process.

Q.

Would arranging a Homebuyer Report be advisable if we are buying a property in Leicestershire?

A.

It is advised that the majority of buyers arrange a house survey. It is a fact that there are a wide range of defects which can affect a property, which will not be addressed during a property valuation. These include settlement.

Q.

Is it possible that some of the protected Leicestershire conservation areas are in neglected condition?

A.

A recent appraisal of the state of Leicestershires conservation areas is documented by English Heritage and the following details are available at their site- Ratby is listed as very bad with low vulnerability and deteriorating, Stoke Golding is listed as very bad with low vulnerability and deteriorating, Shelthorpe is listed as poor with low vulnerability and deteriorating, Shepshed is listed as poor with low vulnerability and deteriorating.

Q.

What actions can we take to defer paying stamp duty in Leicestershire?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is usually due for purchases sold for more than 125,000 pounds. Homeward Legal do not advise buyers risk any form of stamp duty mitigation, as such schemes are highly expensive and unreliable.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a detached Band G dwelling in Leicestershire?

A.

You should be briefed about your house's council tax band with the conveyancer's title report.

The latest council tax charges for homes in Leicestershire are set out in detail on the Leicester local authority site. As of 26 December 2012 rates are:

  • Band A - £970.00

  • Band H - £2,909.00

Q.

How can a Leicestershire conveyancing solicitor report back on the risk and history of flooding in the Leicestershire area?

A.

A critical component in the conveyancing process of purchasing a property involves your lawyer making an application for environmental searches that go in some details about the Leicestershire flood risk. A significantly more involved set of searches (most likely a Landmark Database search) may be proposed by your Leicestershire property solicitor if in the event that the initial searches show that there is a potential flood risk to the property.

Q.

What makes purchase conveyancing to take months to complete?

A.

The Leicestershire conveyancing process may experience many unexpected delays. Homeward Legal do our best to lessen the consequences of these delays wherever feasible.
