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.

What factors help with organising fast conveyancing?

A.

It is a truism that finding a communicative solicitor is key moving faster. That said, there are numerous tasks you can do, such as, asking for property searches to be ordered immediately, quickly answering your solicitor's questions and organising your finances, including arranging a mortgage.

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 E - £1,915.00
  • Band F - £2,263.00
  • Band G - £2,611.00
  • Band H - £3,133.00

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.

Which factors will contaminate land in Milnthorpe. Are these properly investigated?

A.

A wide range of contaminants caused by natural and human-influenced issues can lessen the value of land. Contaminants such as masts or pylons will be investigated during the conveyancing process.

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 buying a restored chapel in the parish of Longsleddale. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered. Through some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to charge chancel repairs on the current owners, there is no guarantee that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will continue to be free from liability. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

How many weeks may conveyancing legal work take, in your experience? If it matters, we are purchasing a house in Milnthorpe.

A.

For the majority of property purchasers, the amount of time needed to buy or sell a property will vary, based on numerous issues affecting the property. These may include if a third party is slow to respond. With our specialist solicitors, every sale is undertaken with the utmost care and speed.
