Q.

How do I get the best rates for conveyancing in Lydney for a £575,000 property?

A.

Many solicitors promote cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional charges may increase the final invoice. Any disbursements should be included on your quote. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

If we are buying near Lydney, in the parish of Thornbury, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. Through some church councils have opted to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, there is no way to be certain that a parish which has not imposed liability will not be so in future. For property in the parish of Thornbury, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Is a Local Authority search a fee or a disbursement?

A.

Unscrupulous firms attempt to pass off fees which should be included as disbursements. It is not always clear whether a cost is a fee or disbursement, and whether it should be included. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, meaning the solicitor passes on the charge at cost.

Q.

Why does sale conveyancing take months to complete?

A.

The conveyancing process may experience many unexpected delays. We see how frustrating such delays may be and do our best to curtail the impact of these delays by pushing all parties involved. Common delays include waiting for responses from third parties.

Q.

Will the Lydney property lawyer apply for any property on the Gloucestershire Victorian terraced house I am purchasing

A.

The conventional procedure will be to get the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search and perhaps area-specific searches, like a Index Map.

Q.

How do you work out stamp duty, and how much should we pay on a £1016000 property?

A.

Stamp Duty in Lydney is based on the property's price. For a residential property valued at £1016000, stamp duty is £50800.

Q.

Would you recommend that I get a chancel liability search? I am buying a maisonette by rectory land in Lydney.

A.

The outcome of a landmark case 10 years ago reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must contribute towards the cost of church repairs. As a result of the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. The solicitor handling your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Church properties in the area where a chancel search may be necessary include St Mary the Virgin.

Q.

What sort of local checks about the risk of flooding to properties in Gloucestershire will my Lydney solicitor be able to carry out?

A.

An important part of the legal procedure involves your conveyancing lawyer carrying out conveyancing searches that provide specific information in relation to Lydney area flood risk.
