Q.

How do I find a cheap solicitor quote to own new build property?

A.

Many online and high street solicitors claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Will my Leven solicitor tell me about the amount to be paid of council tax on a Band A building before completion?

A.

The property's relevant council tax band should usually be given in the report on title along with the local council

The correct charges for Leven are listed at the East Riding of Yorkshire local authority website. As at, 30 September 2012, rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £1,005.00
  • Band B - £1,173.00
  • Band C - £1,341.00

  • Band E - £1,843.00
  • Band F - £2,178.00
  • Band G - £2,514.00
  • Band H - £3,016.00

Q.

Could Leven soil be contaminated by selenium?

A.

There are extensive regulations in place to manage topsoil contamination. The local authority for Leven will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

How will the Leven solicitor investigate the risk of possible flooding around Leven?

A qualified conveyancer will conduct conveyancing and environmental searches that should include Leven flood risk area information. A significantly more thorough set of searches (e.g Homecheck) may be advocated by a Leven solicitor if in the event that the enviro. search suggest a flood risk.

Q.

Which body is responsible for policing the condition of repair of conservation areas in Leven?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have produced information on the condition of conservation areas as well as the vulnerability. Conservation areas in Leven are created by East Riding of Yorkshire who oversee the state of the area including things like poorly maintained roads, addition of hard standings to front and trees.

Q.

Do we need to get a house survey for our property purchase?

A.

It is heavily suggested that you instruct a home surveyor. It is a fact that there are many concerns that can affect a property, which will not be covered by the legal work, for example blocked drains.

Q.

Do you recommend taking action to bypass paying stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

Stamp duty is payable on property sold for over 125,000 pounds. We firmly advise against any stamp duty mitigation, as such schemes are expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed .

Q.

What does a Leven property lawyer recommend if the building we want to buy is inside the boundary of a East Riding of Yorkshire conservation area that possibly has unapproved dormer windows added?

A.

The local authority search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) carried out by a property lawyer during the legal process will ascertain the existence of the appropriate authorisation for additions to the property. If no suitable consents be available your solicitor will inform you of the best alternative which may include buying an indemnity insurance policy or getting retrospective consent from East Riding of Yorkshire council.
