Q.

How do we find a cheap solicitor in Parkwood Springs to buy a freehold home?

A.

Various solicitors advertise cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct.

Q.

Is contaminated land in Parkwood Springs a problem for many homes?

A.

A broad range of contaminants can harm the resale value of residential property in Parkwood Springs, such as pollution incidents. An environmental search can give more clarity.

Q.

Our estate agent in Purley has offered a firm of solicitors. Is it a good idea to use this solicitor?

A.

An agent in Purley can influence a conveyancing solicitor they refer a large volume of work to, and can therefore persuade a solicitor to complete sooner. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, there is a risk that an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

What will the council tax cost me on a Sixties Band F maisonette in Parkwood Springs?

A.

The relevant band should normally be highlighted in the report on title along with the local council Correct charges for properties in Parkwood Springs are published online at the Sheffield local authority website. At the time of authoring (02 February 2013) rates are:

  • Band A - £991.00
    >

  • Band E - £1,816.00
  • Band F - £2,146.00
  • Band G - £2,476.00
  • Band H - £2,972.00

Q.

The house being purchased is on a former industrial site. Is the soil potentially contaminated?

A.

The risks posed by topsoil contamination to Parkwood Springs inhabitants are usually low. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as asbestos.

Q.

At what point should you instruct a conveyancer?

A.

The straightforward answer is, as soon as possible, as there are several tasks which may be performed very early in the process. Some advocate holding off instruction until an offer is accepted, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.

Q.

I am intending to buy a restored chapel in the parish of York St Helen Fishergate. Will a chancel search be specified?

A.

The solicitor responsible for your move is likely to recommend that a chancel search be taken out. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on owners of a property where parish councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

There are collections of useful books on the subject of do it yourself conveyancing. Do I really have to use conveyancing solicitor in Parkwood Springs ?

A.

Conceivably there is no reason at all why you should not engage in the legal and technical work unaided.

The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor is in charge of a long list of actions such as chasing any outstanding docs or registering the new title owner many of which are more safely handled with appropriate experience. Additionally lawyers are duty bound to get applicable insurance to insulate you from any professional losses you encounter on the part of the solicitor.
