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.

Which local authority looks after Milnthorpe?

A.

Q.

What can I do to avoid paying for stamp duty to HM Revenue?

A.

Stamp duty is payable on property priced at over 125,000 pounds. Homeward Legal strongly advise against any stamp duty mitigation, as such schemes are costly and very risky. There have been a number of government initiatives, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers, and your solicitor will advise if these may apply.

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.

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.

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.

What does the Milnthorpe conveyancing solicitor do if the home I am planning to buy is inside a registered conservation area and has unauthorised windows fitted?

A.

Local authority searches carried out by a property lawyer during the legal process will confirm whether the Milnthorpe property a conservation area and any evidence of local authority approval for changes to the property will be asked for.

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.
