Q.

How do we get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Various solicitors offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional charges will be included in the solicitor's terms. Excited home owners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any extra costs found in terms and conditions should be fair and reasonable. Your quote should also state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.

Q.

Do you recommend that I get a chancel search if I am buying in New Milton?

A.

Owners of property neighbouring churches are expected to fund repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Several sources are used to determine liability in New Milton, including parish archives.

Q.

Please address how to get out of paying for SDLT rates?

A.

We do not advise buyers expose their finances to any stamp duty avoidance. These schemes are costly and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.

Q.

Does my conveyancing solicitor in New Milton order any searches on the Hampshire Edwardian semi-detached property I am purchasing

Normal legal procedure is to obtain these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search and perhaps area-specific searches e.g. a Commons Registration Search.

Q.

Is nickel soil contamination likely in New Milton?

A.

Given the history of industry and agriculture in parts of New Milton, top-soil contamination is inescapable. Other sources of contaminated land include groundwater contamination and chlorine.

Q.

In a few weeks I am intending to be finally moving from our detached house near New Milton into a maisonette in Lyndhurst , what is the optimum stage to choose a home removal firm?

A.

We tend to encourage home sellers hold off until after the contracts have exchanged because typically an absolute move date wont have been set. For more information speak to Griffin Rob, 9 Wilton Gdns, New Milton, BH25 5UT on 07908 030600 or Rhemo Removals, 120 Old Milton Road, New Milton, BH25 6EB Phone: 01425 612364.

Q.

How is stamp duty calculated, and what should we budget for a £575000 property?

A.

Stamp Duty depends on the purchase price. On a £575000 house, stamp duty will be £23000.*

Q.

We are purchasing a rectory in the parish of Widley. Will a chancel search be necessary?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search is ordered, regardless of the parish where the house being bought is located. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to impose chancel repairs on the owners of land subject to chancel liability, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not continue to be so.
