Q.

I need a lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing. because we are on a limited budget.

A.

Many online and high street law firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra fees can inflate your solicitor's invoice. Any disbursements to be paid should also be included on your quote Extras should be clearly defined and only be applied if your lawyer must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Can you recommend how to bypass paying stamp duty to HM Revenue?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is generally due on property purchases sold for over one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. Homeward Legal strongly advise against any stamp duty mitigation, as such schemes are often uneconomical and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed .

Q.

What can a Newtown conveyancing solicitor do if the house I want to buy is inside a conservation area and has out of place window frames installed?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor will always establish if your proposed purchase is located within a designated conservation area, and if so whether any

modifications have the requisite permissions from the Powys authority. In the absence of any the necessary permissions, your conveyancing solicitor will advise you of the best alternatives, which include obtaining retrospective permission from Powys council or purchasing indemnity insurance.

Q.

How is Newtown contaminated land identified?

A.

Land will be contaminated by several human activities, and an environmental search should clarify to what extent a property may be impacted by contaminants like environmental radon sources.

Q.

I am buying a 1930s property in one of the conservation areas. Where does one locate more information concerning the state of upkeep of the conservation area?

A.

Local conservation areas are set up by Powys who are responsible for things like property boundaries to the avoidance of ugly parking meters.

English Heritage, a government body, have conducted a survey and created a list of the state of conservation areas as well as the vulnerability of the area.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Newtown?

A.

Newtown is located in Powys County Council, County Hall, Llandrindod Wells, Powys, LD1 5LG, phone: 0845 055 2155

Q.

Should the fixtures and fittings list items like fixed towel rail?

A.

Mainly, there is not a clear definition of 'fixtures and fittings'. This can be disregarded, making early agreement of the list of items included with the purchase so essential.

Q.

Do we need to get a property survey for our home purchase?

A.

It is suggested that property purchasers arrange a home surveyor. It is a fact that there are a wide range of defects which affect a property, that will not be addressed during the conveyancing process, for example failed double glazing.
