Your property lawyer to establish if the property is located within a designated conservation area and whether any modifications have the appropriate consents from the local authority.

Q.

Does my New Romney conveyancing solicitor in form me about the cost of council tax on a Band B cottage before completion?

Q.

Can we avoid paying for stamp duty tax?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is generally due on property sold for more than 125,000 pounds. Homeward Legal firmly advise against any stamp duty scheme, as such schemes are often uneconomical and can be very unlikely to succeed.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search? We are purchasing a home on the same road as priory grounds in New Romney.

A.

The outcome of a landmark case 10 years ago reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must fund church repairs. Terms used in a property's name, like 'glebe', may indicate chancel liability. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Ecclesiastical properties in this area which may give rise to chancel liability include St Nicholas.

Q.

My mortgage lender is GE Money Home Lending, what will we need to check?

A.

When arranging a mortgage to purchase a property, legal work must be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. A small number of lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them. We, fortunately, will act for many mortgage lenders so that you will not be required to pay an additional fee for your lender's solicitor.
