Q.

What will the overall charge be on the sale of a £85,000 house? I am looking for an affordable conveyancing quote.

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many solicitors purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement which unwary buyers fail to check. Fees needs to be fair and clearly defined. They only come into force where your solicitor must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements ought to be listed on a quote

Q.

We are buying on a Milnthorpe brownfield land. Is manganese (Mn) top-soil contamination likely?

A.

Restrictions exist to limit soil contamination, but some existing contaminants can reside for decades after exposure. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as groundwater contamination and industrial storage.

Q.

Does our conveyancer in Milnthorpe report back to me about the cost of council tax on a Band F building before completing on the purchase?

A.

The lawyer will contact the appropriate South Lakeland local council to enquire about the relevant council tax band and rates, which will then be written in the title report. Council tax charges for residents of Milnthorpe are

tabled at the South Lakeland local authority site. At the time of authoring on 09 February 2013 the rates are:

  • Band A - £1,044.00
  • Band B - £1,218.00
  • Band C - £1,392.00
  • Band D - £1,566.00
  • Band E - £1,915.00
  • Band F - £2,263.00
  • Band G - £2,611.00
  • Band H - £3,133.00

Q.

Is gazumping prevalent in Milnthorpe?

A.

This arises when a property seller accepts an offer, only to later reject it in favour of a second buyer's offer. Gazumping could occur even months into a sale. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a risk of being gazumped. Instructing a conveyancing solicitor as soon as you can to handle your transaction should help to reduce the likelihood of gazumping.

Q.

Which mortgage lenders in Milnthorpe do you work with?

A.

We can work with the majority of lenders providing financing to Milnthorpe home purchasers. Milnthorpe lenders and mortgage specialists include Barclays Bank PLC, 1 Church St, Milnthorpe, LA7 7FF.

Q.

Is a PI contribution a disbursement or fee?

A.

Disbursements and fees should be identified on a quote for your conveyancing, with no additional charges of any kind in the terms and conditions. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in a conveyancing quote.

Q.

What search enquiries will the solicitor in Milnthorpe order when acting on a Milnthorpe flat?

A.

The standard legal procedure is to get these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW), Environmental and Gypsum Mining Search and perhaps particular searches, like British Waterways.

Q.

We are interested in purchasing a residence in Milnthorpe. How can we check that the residence is in a designated conservation area?

A.

With over 8,000 conservation areas throughout England, the regions in or near Milnthorpe include several areas of special architectural or historic interest defined as protected. You may wish to contact the local authority if you have specific questions, but your property solicitor will address this during the house-buying process.
