Bristol Airport is 30 miles from Montacute. The closest train station to Montacute is Yeovil Pen Mill.

Yeovil District is a nearby hospital for Montacute.

Q.

How do we find fixed rate conveyancing in Montacute?

A.

Many firms advertise so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra costs will be included in the terms of engagement. Any disbursements to be paid must also be stated on your conveyancing quote. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Will we need a chancel liability search? We are buying in Montacute.

A.

In Montacute, where land was once owned by a lay rectors, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards the cost of repairs to an old church building. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Church of England properties in the local area include St Catherine.

Q.

Are we advised to get a chancel search if I am buying in the parish of Charlton Horethorne?

A.

The solicitor may suggest a chancel search, whichever parish in which the residence being purchased is located. Chancel repair dues can be collected on the current

owners of a residence where parish councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

Is Montacute soil possibly contaminated by antimony?

A.

Soil contamination is monitored frequently. Also considering issues such as groundwater contamination and perchlorate, contaminants affecting Montacute property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

How much time may the legal work to sell a flat take, on average? The house being transacted is also in the area.

A.

The length of time required to transfer a house will vary, affected by several factors which may include if there is a mortgage. Our lawyers strive to ensure every sale is undertaken with the utmost care and speed.

Q.

As a result of the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England we are thinking that property conveyancing searches aren't exacting enough?

A.

Property conveyancing searches conducted by a Montacute conveyancing solicitor should include a more rigorous Landmark flood search if the risk warrants it.

It is not uncommon for buyers to converse with a neighbour of the property for that further local history.

Q.

I've had a quote from you. Might I be charged any supplementary hidden fees?

A.

Homeward Legal do not hide any hidden fees.

Q.

For a property valued at £400000. How is stamp duty rates determined?

A.

The Stamp Duty rate you pay will depend on the valuation. It will be £12000 on a £400000 house or flat.
