Q.

I have requested a quote from you for my move to Mold, but will there be any hidden charges?

Our solicitors never hide any extra fees. A Homeward Legal quote is a single, accurate fee that is fixed for your conveyancing requirements. Very occasionally, additional legal work might be required (such as drawing up a will), but your solicitor will keep you apprised of such eventualities and what you will be charged, so that, with Homeward Legal, you are always in charge of your legal bill. For the best and clearest quote, why not try our quote calculator? Or, if you want to talk to someone, you could call our expert team on 0800 038 6699.

Q.

If we are buying in the parish of Mold, do we need a chancel search?

The conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered. Although some Parochial Church Councils have taken the decision to recharge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, there is no way to be certain that a parish, which has not imposed liability to date, will continue to be unaffected. If the chancel search is performed, and the risk of liability is significant, your solicitor can advise on the next steps, including taking out an inexpensive indemnity insurance policy.

Q.

What factors will contaminate land in Mold, and should they be an issue, if we want to buy a house there?

Mold property could be contaminated by several environmental concerns, like shallow mining, or the proximity to phone masts or pylons. An environmental search can provide much more clarity on these issues and contaminants in the soil and your solicitor will highlight the details in the report on title. Brookhill Landfill Site, Brookhill Way, Flintshire, CH7 3PL is a source of potential local contamination in Mold.

Q.

I am worried about council tax charges on a Forties, mid-terrace house in Mold, so what are they?

The conveyancing report on title will give details of the Flintshire council tax band into which your property falls. Council tax rates for homes in Mold are published online at the Flintshire council website (see the head of these FAQs for a link to the homepage). For the 2017/2018 tax year, the council tax rates for Mold were:

  • Band A - £941.46
  • • Band B - £1,098.37 • Band C - £1,255.28 • Band D - £1,412.19 • Band E - £1,726.02 • Band F - £2,039.83 • Band G - £2,353.65 • Band H - £2,824.38 • Band I - £3,295.11

Q.

How will my solicitor investigate the risk and history of floods around Mold?

A crucial part of the conveyancing protocol involves your conveyancing lawyer conducting property environmental searches. These will provide you with data regarding the flood-risk in Mold. If the level of risk is significantly high, your solicitor might recommend carrying out an additional, more in-depth flood search. This is a disbursement, costing around £20, and will be passed on to you at cost.

Q.

How do we calculate the Stamp Duty Land Tax in Mold for a £807,000 property?

The Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) payable is dependent largely on the property's value, if it is more than £125,000. On a £807,000 house, the stamp duty will be £30,350. Note that the government may increase or decrease the trigger point for SDLT, or change the parameters regulating the amount to be charged to you. You might want to use an online calculator like the one at www.stampdutycalculator.org.uk.

Do you work with mortgage lenders with offices in Mold?

Q.

Could tungsten (W) contaminate land in Mold?

A.

Considerable measures are taken in all parts of Mold and the UK to rectify top-soil contamination. Other sources of contaminated land include chlorine and groundwater contaminants like pesticides.

Q.

What do we do to calculate Stamp Duty Land Tax in Mold, what will it be on a £807000 property?

A.

The Stamp Duty you will owe is dependent on the purchase price. It is £32280 on a £807000 property.

Q.

How early is it appropriate to get a solicitor to act on our purchase?

A.

If you use a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the sooner you instruct a firm, the better. Instructing your solicitor earlier for a purchase means that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing transaction to buy a £ 347,000 property, what should we aim for to speed up our transaction?

A.

Finding a experienced solicitor is crucial to fast conveyancing. Beyond that, there are various jobs you, as the buyer, can do to get moving sooner, such as, keeping in regular contact with the solicitor, responding to all correspondence via the fastest means and arranging your mortgage offer.

Q.

What length of time can the legal work to purchase property take? We need to move quickly.

A.

On average, the length of time taken to transfer a residence will vary. This is according to a range of issues which can include if it is a leasehold property being transferred. Homeward Legal solicitors ensure your sale or purchase receives fast and efficient service.

Q.

Do you advise that we get searches for chancel liability? I am buying on the same street as an ecclesiastical parish in Mold.

A.

As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Mold which was once owned by a 'lay rectors' can be liable for repairs to a medieval church. As a result of the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land in Mold must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search.
