Q.

How do I find the best rates for conveyancing for a £519,000 residence?

A.

Confusion over this point catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', however extra fees will be included in the small print. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any charges should be fair and clearly defined. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Do your panel of solicitors have experience with the conveyancing for auction properties in Linslade?

A.

Homeward Legal do frequently carry out work for sellers at auction. Homeward Legal invariably recommend buyers at auction to decide on a good conveyancing solicitor well before the property auction date so there is time for a detailed report of the sellers documents.

Thereafter, following the day of bidding your dedicated solicitor is thoroughly ready for completing the legal side of things inside as short a time frame as conventionally required .

Q.

What makes Linslade conveyancing to require so much time and effort?

A.

Conveyancing can be drawn out. Homeward Legal see how frustrating such delays may be and endeavour to minimise their consequences by chasing for prompt responses. Reasons for delay include a slow firm acting for the lender.

Q.

Will a title report prepared by the Linslade property solicitor give details about the relevant rates of the council tax for a Band B house before exchanging contracts?

A.

A property solicitor will consult with the Central Bedfordshire local council to discover the currently applicable council tax band and rates, which should then be detailed in the title report.

The correct charges for residents of Linslade are published online at the Central Bedfordshire local authority website. As at, 13 August 2012, the different rates are:

  • Band A - £1,098.00
  • Band B - £1,281.00
  • Band C - £1,464.00
  • Band D - £1,647.00
  • Band E - £2,012.00
  • Band F - £2,378.00
  • Band G - £2,744.00
  • Band H - £3,293.00

Q.

Our purchase is completing in January, how is stamp duty worked out?

A.

Stamp Duty is calculated based on the purchase price of the property. For a home worth £1157000, stamp duty is £57850.*

*This information correct as of June 2012

Q.

We are buying on a brownfield site. It seems that barium soil contamination may be an issue.

A.

Linslade and the surrounding region has a legacy of chemical contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including water contaminants such as silage and ammonia.

Q.

Which government authority has overall responsibility for recording the state of neglect the conservation areas in Linslade?

A.

Local conservation areas are specified by the local authority (Central Bedfordshire) who oversee the state of the area including things like ugly highway signs, side extensions and street furniture. English Heritage have assembled a list on the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in England along with the vulnerability.

Q.

The owner appears to have installed dormer windows on the flat which I think might possibly contravene Linslade conservation area guidelines.

A.

Central Bedfordshire local authority enquiries conducted by a property lawyer in the process of the conveyancing will find out if the property is inside a conservation area proof of permission for additions to the property will be supplied.
