Q.

I am trying to find the cheapest conveyancing quote. How do we get a quote?

A.

Numerous property lawyers purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional fees are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions.

Q.

Does my assigned Messingham conveyancing solicitor report back to me about the cost of the council tax on a Band A property prior to exchanging contracts?

A.

The property lawyer will contact the North Lincolnshire local authority to discover the correct council tax band and rates, which will subsequently be detailed in the title report. The latest tax rates for residents of Messingham are listed online at the North Lincolnshire council website. Currently, 01 July 2012, rates are as follows:

  • Band B - £1,215.00

  • Band F - £2,257.00
  • Band G - £2,604.00
  • Band H - £3,124.00

Q.

What exploration regarding the uncertain risk of local flooding at Lincolnshire will my Messingham conveyancer report back on?

A.

A key step in the conveyancing procedure carried out when buying a property involves a conveyancing solicitor conducting property conveyancing searches that set out detail about the Messingham area flood risk.

Q.

I am buying in Messingham with Lloyds TSB, what do we need to know?

A.

Traditionally, it was usually straightforward for solicitors to act for both a buyer and their lender. Recently, a number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', resulting in increased legal costs for purchasers if their conveyancing solicitor is unable to act both on their behalf, and for their lender. Homeward Legal, fortunately, are able to act on behalf of all major lenders.

Q.

What factors will contaminate land in Messingham, and should they be an issue?

A.

Land may have been contaminated by numerous natural causes and human activities, and an environmental search should clarify to what extent a property is affected by Messingham contaminants like local waste transfer sites.

Q.

Is a drainage search a disbursement or fee?

A.

It may not be clear if an item on your quote is a disbursement or a fee. This charge, for example, is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on at cost.

Q.

Do you advise that we get a chancel liability search if we are buying a Messingham property near a 1300s rectory manor?

A.

In Messingham, some owners can be required to cover the cost of repairs to older church buildings. A chancel search checks that such a liability exists. Churches in this area where a chancel search may be necessary include Holy Trinity.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Messingham?

A.

Messingham is located in North Lincolnshire Council, Pittwood House, Ashby Road, Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire, DN16 1AB, phone: 01724 296 296
