Q.

We need discount conveyancing in Lichfield. What is included?

A.

This catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors promote supposedly cheap conveyancing. However additional fees may increase your final bill. Charges ought to be fair and reasonable and be applicable solely where your solicitor is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements ought to be listed on a conveyancing quote. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Conveyancing searches are common set of enquiries performed on behalf of the purchaser, for example a local authority search, and deal with legal facets of the purchase.

  • Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication?
  • How soon will they order searches?

Q.

How is Stamp Duty Land Tax worked out, and how much do we need to budget for a £621000 property?

Land may be contaminated by many factors caused by man and by nature, such as brine works. An environmental search should offer more information. Christian Fields Landfill Site, Off Eastern Avenue, Staffordshire, WS13 7SQcould be a local cause of land contamination in Lichfield.
