Many firms offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional fees will be included in the terms and conditions that property buyers and sellers often do not check.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if we plan to buy in the parish of Enmore?

A.

Your lawyer may suggest a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the home being bought is located. In older areas of Midsomer Norton, chancel repair may be

apportioned on owners of a home where church councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. For property in the parish of Enmore, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Can you confirm how I get out of paying out for stamp duty?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is due for property sold for more than £125,000. Stamp duty reduction scheme must be treated with caution. These schemes are highly expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later and the total stamp duty tax may be payable, along with interest and penalties. There have been certain official schemes, however, such as for first-time buyers.

Q.

How do you calculate Stamp Duty Land Tax rates and what will it be on a £1110000 house?

A.

The rate of stamp duty which will be owed depends on the purchase price of the house. On a £1110000 property, stamp duty will be £55500 (source: www.hmrc.gov.uk, May 2012).

Q.

What amount of time may be planned for the legal work to purchase property generally take in Midsomer Norton?

A.

In general, the amount of time needed to sell or purchase a home varies, with reference to a range of aspects, for example, if either party has a mortgage. Our conveyancing solicitors strive to ensure your sale or purchase is undertaken with the utmost care and speed.

Q.

We are going to buy with UCB Home Loans - what will I need to be aware of?

A.

Recently, a number of lenders have limited the firms who can act for them. This can mean increased conveyancing costs for property purchasers. We will act on behalf of most lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.
