Q.

Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £361,000 house? We are looking for fixed rate conveyancing.

A.

This catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms that buyers and sellers often do not check. Costslisted in terms of engagement should be reasonable. They only apply in cases where the conveyancer must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Meliden?

A.

Meliden is located in Denbighshire County Council, County Hall, Wynnstay Road, Ruthin, Denbighshire, LL15 1YN, phone: 01824 706 000

Q.

How do you determine stamp duty, and how much should we pay on a £58000 property?

A.

Stamp Duty is based on the property's price. For a property purchased for £58000, SDLT will be £0.

Q.

Has cadmium (Cd) ever contaminated land in Meliden?

A.

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Meliden, but some extreme cases may be deemed an unsafe risk. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including perchlorate.

Q.

What is the council tax on a period detached property in Meliden?

A.

Normally a conveyancer's title report will give the appropriate Denbighshire council tax band. The latest tax rates for Meliden are set out online at the Denbighshire local authority site. At the time of writing on 23/12/2012 rates are:

  • Band A - £870.54

  • Band E - £1,595.99
  • Band F - £1,886.17

Q.

Should we order a chancel search if I am intending to purchase in the parish of Chirk, near Meliden?

A.

Whether you are buying a home in Meliden or elsewhere in the county, the property solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is taken out. In older areas of Meliden, chancel repair may be apportioned on new owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have spared previous owners or tenants. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

How is Meliden contaminated land identified when buying a property?

A.

Many of contaminants caused by natural causes may reduce the value of Meliden property, like military land. An environmental search will give more information.

Q.

How long can conveyancing take? We have a buyer ready.

A.

The amount of time required to transfer property varies. This is dependent on a broad set of legal considerations including if the property is leasehold. Our conveyancers strive to ensure every sale is undertaken as quickly as possible.
