Q.

I need low cost conveyancing. What are the risks?

A.

Numerous firms offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional fees will be included in the terms of engagement that buyers often do not check. Extra costs which are listed in your solicitor's terms needs to be reasonable. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

If I am intending to purchase in the parish of Walham Green, will it be necessary to get a chancel search?

A.

Whether you are buying a residence in Norbiton or elsewhere in the county, the property lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search is taken out. Through some parish councils have opted to charge chancel repairs on the owners of land subject to chancel liability, there is no guarantee that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not be so in future, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

Will the report on title compiled by the Norbiton conveyancing solicitor report back on the cost of the council tax for a Band F apartment before exchanging contracts?

A property solicitor will approach the council to ask about the correct council tax rates, which should then be added to the conveyancing report on title. Up-to-date rates for Norbiton are listed at the council site.

Q.

We are buying on a ex-industrial use land. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste like lithium (Li)?

A.

There are laws in place to restrict topsoil contamination. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs) and groundwater contamination.

Q.

Are charges for obtaining duplicate freehold company share certificates disbursements or fees?

A.

Each fee and disbursement ought to be stated on a conveyancing quote. These costs are fees not disbursements, and should be included in a conveyancing quote.

Q.

Would you recommend taking precautions to defer paying for stamp duty to HM Revenue?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is usually due for home purchases over 125,000 pounds. We do not recommend any form of stamp duty mitigation scheme. These schemes are highly expensive and can be very unlikely to succeed. There have been several government-sponsored schemes, such as for first-time buyers.

Q.

As a result of the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall in the future I am asking whether conveyancing searches may not be sufficient?

A.

The property solicitor in Norbiton will get additional environmental searches if the initial searches determine a significant risk.

For greater area background you may be able to contact a neighbour or local resident.

Q.

Is there an authority that has any over the web record the status of the conservation areas in Norbiton?

A.

Conservation area matters, for example building materials used or poorly maintained pavements are handled by the local Kingston upon Thames planning authority. English Heritage, a government body, have conducted a survey and created a list in relation to the state of repair of conservation areas along with the vulnerability of the area.
