Q.

What are the best rates for conveyancing for a £293,000 house?

A.

Many buyers seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many solicitors offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional charges will be included in the small print. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any disbursements to be paid should also be clearly stated on the quote. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

Which specific property conveyancing searches does a Maryport solicitor conduct on a Maryport flat?

A.

Normal legal procedure will be to get the following Local Authority (council), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environmental and Gypsum Mining Search, and possibly specific searches for example Planning Search.

Q.

Are many buyers in Maryport gazumped?

A.

Gazumping occurs when a seller accepts the first buyer's offer and then refuses it, opting for a higher offer. This could occur even months into a purchase. The danger of gazumping exists for almost any purchase. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a proactive solicitor early.

Q.

Can we check that the property we are buying is in a designated conservation area?

A.

There are numerous conservation areas in or near Maryport. These restrictions can result in the buyer inheriting liability of unauthorised changes, but the benefits will include confidence that property will retain its value. Your conveyancing lawyer will offer more information.

Q.

Is it necessary that I get a chancel search? I am purchasing on the same road as a 13th Century glebe in Maryport.

A.

Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Maryport property likely to be affected. Some names or words such as 'priory' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Churches in Maryport include Christ Church and St Mary.

Q.

What will the fees for conveyancing searches total?

A.

With Homeward Legal, Maryport clients are charged at most £249 for a standard bundle of searches.

Q.

Is beryllium soil contamination likely in Maryport?

A.

Even where some contamination has occurred in Maryport, risk levels are usually low. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as chlorine.

Q.

Will my assigned conveyancing solicitor in Maryport inform me about the cost of the council tax on a Band F cottage before completing on the purchase?

A.

The property solicitor will liaise with the relevant council to find out the correct council tax rates, which will then be set out in the title report. The latest tax rates for residents of Maryport are set out in detail online at the Allerdale local authority website. On (08 January 2013) band rates are:
