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.

Is contaminated land a problem for the majority of residential properties in Lydney?

A.

Land is contaminated by several natural causes. Contaminants such as waste disposal sites and nearby electrical substations should be considered as part of the appropriate search. Contamination can be caused by Lydney waste sites, including Canal Works, Harbour Road, Gloucestershire, GL15 4EN.

Q.

Will we need a Lydney house surveyor to review the home purchase in Lydney?

A.

We heavily advise that property purchasers order a RICS survey when you plan to buy in Lydney. There can be a range of defects that can affect a property, which will not be addressed during a property valuation, for example cracked roof tiles and flat roof leaks.

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.

Does the property lawyer in Lydney report back to me about the amount to be paid of council tax on a Band H cottage before exchange of contracts?

A.

A lawyer will consult with the South Gloucestershire local authority to ascertain the applicable council tax band and rates, which will be added to the title report.

The correct charges for Lydney are set out in detail on the South Gloucestershire local authority site. At the time of authoring (22 July 2012) rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £1,023.00
  • Band B - £1,193.00
  • Band C - £1,364.00
  • Band D - £1,534.00
  • Band E - £1,875.00
  • Band F - £2,216.00
  • Band G - £2,557.00
  • Band H - £3,068.00

Q.

An un-planned event demand that we would prefer to exchange contracts on the sale of our jointly owned leasehold apartment quickly, do you any particularly fast Lydney conveyancing solicitors ?

A.

We believe that our conveyancing lawyers take a thoroughly efficient approach to fulfilling the conveyancing work Homeward Legals home moving lawyers always communicate from the start to the end of the buyer and seller chain and who always implement new case and work flow systems and technology systems to complete on your sale to your ideal move date.

Q.

What does a Lydney property solicitor recommend if the property is inside the boundary of a conservation area in South Gloucestershire local authority that may have an un-consented new windows added?

A.

South Gloucestershire local authority search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) carried out by your Lydney conveyancing solicitor in the process of the conveyancing will determine if the property is inside a conservation area proof of consent for additions to the property will be supplied.

Q.

How long does we account for the legal work to buy a home take, in your opinion?

A.

The time taken to buy or sell property does vary, based on a number of legal considerations including whether the property being bought or sold is leasehold. Eight to twelve weeks is the industry-wide average, whereas our solicitors will, wherever feasible, work towards a six-week timescale.
