Q.

We need to find discount conveyancing in Lynton. How do we get a quote?

A.

Many solicitors purport to offer cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional fees will be included in the solicitor's terms. Any disbursements ought to be listed on the quote

Q.

Will my assigned Lynton solicitor report back to me about the amount to be paid of council tax on a Band H house before completion?

A.

A solicitor will liaise with the relevant North Devon local authority to reveal the relevant council tax charges which will subsequently be included in the report on title.

Up-to-date charges for residents of Lynton are set out online at the North Devon local authority site. On 30 December 2012 the rates are:

  • Band B - £1,213.00

Q.

Do you confirm taking action to avoid paying stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is usually payable for purchases over £125,000. We do not advise home movers risk any form of stamp duty avoidance, as such schemes are expensive and very risky.

Q.

Do fixtures and fittings include things like free-standing kitchen appliances?

A.

In general, there is not a strict definition of 'fixtures and fittings'. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

What do property searches relate to?

A.

These searches are a standard set of queries ordered by the buyer's solicitor. These searches do give much needed information and context, but deal with the legal aspects of the purchase.

Q.

Are your recommend solicitors experienced enough to move quickly on the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Lynton?

A.

The legal team deal with auctions throughout the UK and regularly carry out work for auction buyers and sellers. It is very important for bidders to formally appoint their chosen solicitor as early as possible for a thorough investigation of the sellers documents in advance of the actual auction.

After the property auction your instructed lawyer is focused on completing the legal side of things in the reduced time frame as usually required by the conditions of sale.

Q.

Is contaminated land an issue for many residences in Lynton?

A.

Residential property is contaminated by several environmental concerns. Contaminants such as proximity to landfill sites should be reported on during conveyancing searches.

Q.

Do we need to get a Homebuyer Report for our house purchase?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors firmly suggest that home buyers in Lynton arrange a surveyor. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of problems that have a negative impact on a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address, such as chimney defects and insect infestation.
