Q.

How do I get a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many homeowners paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many law firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However extra charges are frequently hidden in the small print, left unread by preoccupied homeowners Any additional charges found in terms of engagement needs to be reasonable. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We are intending to purchase a medieval barn conversion in the parish of North Newnton. Will a chancel search be appropriate?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. In older areas of Mere, chancel repair may be imposed on the current owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Should I get a house survey for this home purchase?

A.

It is suggested that all buyers in Mere book a survey. Numerous concerns will impact a property. These can include failed double glazing.

Q.

I need to find fast property lawyers in Mere, is that your solicitors?

We maintain that our network of efficient conveyancing lawyers take a very active style to finishing the conveyance

Our CQS solicitors attempt to communicate through the whole of the property chain (sequence of buyers and sellers) and that always use leading edge workflow and IT systems to complete on your sale fast.

Q.

What actions can I take to hold off paying stamp duty to HM Revenue?

A.

Stamp duty scheme should be treated with extreme caution. These schemes are highly expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later.

Q.

Do we need to make use of a conveyancing who generally works with by our agent?

A.

Many agents in Dunvant have arrangements with solicitors where they refer clients to them. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

Having read about the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England, we are wondering if flood risk searches aren't thorough enough?

A.

A thorough conveyancing solicitor in Mere should always carry out detailed flood risk searches if the standard search spots a significant risk.

For extra area background it could be worth trying to get in touch with a neighbour of the property.

Q.

What type of environmental conveyancing searches about the risk of local flooding in the Wiltshire region will my property solicitor in Mere do?

A.

A key part of the legal process involves a solicitor carrying out environmental searches that set out details in relation to Mere historical flood risk. At the time of writing (24-Dec-12) there were no warnings around the at the River Camel from Camelford to Polbrock including Penrose Bridge, Wenford, Helland Bridge, Dunmere & Sewage Treatment Works at Camelford & Nanstallon
