Q.

We need the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Linton. and what is included?

A.

Many conveyancers offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional charges will be included in the small print. A conveyancing quote ought to define any disbursements to be paid. Additional charges included in the solicitor's terms should be fair and reasonable. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What will the council tax cost on a investment Band F maisonette in Linton?

A.

The band should usually be highlighted as part of the conveyancer's title report along with the governing local authority. The latest council tax rates for homes in Linton are published at the South Cambridgeshire council site. At the time of authoring (28 January 2013) rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £996.00
  • Band B - £1,162.00
  • Band C - £1,328.00
  • Band D - £1,494.00
  • Band E - £1,826.00
  • Band F - £2,159.00
  • Band G - £2,491.00
  • Band H - £2,989.00

Q.

Is your solicitor team able to complete fast auction conveyancing in Linton?

A.

In fact we deal with auctions throughout the UK and regularly carry out work for sellers at auction. Lawyers strongly advocate buyers at auction to formally appoint a lawyer before the property auction to allow enough time for a full investigation. Subsequently, immediately after the day of bidding your experienced lawyer is wholly focused on quickly completing the conveyancing within the limited time as required by the conditions of sale.

Q.

We are buying on a Linton ex-industrial use land. Seemingly uranium soil contamination may be an issue.

A.

Restrictions exist to manage soil contamination, but some existing contaminants can reside for decades after exposure. Metal contamination of soil in Linton is more likely to occur near ex-industrial or waste handling sites. Data on other contaminants, like groundwater contamination and asbestos, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

My wife and I are buying in Linton, and need to know if there are many designated conservation areas.

A.

Parts of Linton considered be of historical or architectural value, like stretches of canals, may be recognised as conservation areas. Linton itself is named as a conservation area. These restrictions can result in the buyer inheriting liability of unauthorised changes, but the benefits will include an increase in local property values.

Q.

What can my searches cost?

A.

Searches range in cost. Searches are paid to a third party, and are not included in a quote for solicitor's fees.

Q.

What authority is under obligation for policing the condition of repair of the conservation areas in Linton?

A.

Conservation areas in Linton are specified by the local authority (South Cambridgeshire) who administer everything from including things like neglected buildings, coloured road surfaces and what can be demolished. English Heritage, a government body, now maintain a list in relation to the state of conservation areas along with the vulnerability of the area.

Q.

Conveyancing and environmental searches are assessed from past information and given climate change for example the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since 1920 are they actually good enough to report enough about the ever changing Linton area flood risk?

A.

A thorough Linton conveyancing solicitor should also get flood searches if the standard searches flag up any kind of Linton flood risk.
