Norfolk data:

The nearest station to Norfolk is Attleborough, almost 9 miles away. The nearest airport to Norfolk is Norwich International Airport (17 miles).

Dereham is a relatively close hospital.

Q.

We need a discount conveyancing quote. What are the risks?

A.

Many online and high street property lawyers promote cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional costs will be included in the terms.

Q.

How is contaminated land in Norfolk identified?

A.

Land in Norfolk is contaminated by a broad range of environmental factors, and an environmental search should reveal whether a home may be affected by contaminants in the area such as limestone or gypsum quarrying.

Q.

In what ways can the conveyancer in Norfolk advise on the risk of local flooding to properties in Norfolk for an Edwardian property we are purchasing?

A.

A solicitor applies for official conveyancing searches that should include Norfolk flood risk area data.

Q.

Are any conservation areas in Norfolk likely to affect us?

A.

Areas deemed to be of 'special architectural and historic interest', such as picturesque villages, will be designated as conservation areas. Dereham, Foulsham and RAF Coltishall are among the conservation areas in Norfolk. The local authority will provide more details about local conservation areas, and the conveyancing solicitor handling your purchase will discuss the relevant responsibilities.

Q.

How many weeks does the conveyancing process need? We have a buyer ready.

A.

The number of weeks needed to sell or purchase a property will vary, with reference to a handful of legal considerations which may include where a party does not quickly respond an enquiry. With our Norfolk property specialists, the matter receives fast and efficient service.

Q.

Property lawyers in Norfolk order a variety of property when they are instructed to act for a property purchaser, what actual searches?

A.

If buying and taking out a mortgage lender will expect a solicitor to get at least specific searches, including these searches - Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search and Environmental, and, depending on certain criteria, specific local Norfolk searches, which may include a Commons Search.

Q.

How do we work out stamp duty rates and what should we pay on a £1137000 house?

A.

The Stamp Duty Land Tax due will rely on the purchase price. For a property bought for £1137000, SDLT is £56850 (source: www.hmrc.gov.uk, October 2012).
