Q.

Are additional fees applied? I am trying to find a fixed rate conveyancing quote.

A.

Numerous firms claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional fees are often hiding in the terms. Applicable disbursements should also be included on a Paulton conveyancing quote Costs which are listed in the terms should be reasonable. They be applicable solely where the lawyer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.

Q.

Should we employ the conveyancing solicitor suggested by our estate agent?

A.

Your agent will often recommend a conveyancing solicitor. These referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

What makes Paulton property legal work to take weeks more than planned?

The legal work involved in buying or selling Paulton property will occasionally be lengthy. We seek to minimise their effect by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible. Reasons for delay may include slow third parties such as landlords or managing agents.

Will a report on title compiled by the lawyer in Paulton give information the applicable rates of council tax for a Band H maisonette before completion?

A.

A lawyer will liaise with the governing local council to ascertain the current council tax band and rates, which should subsequently be detailed in the report on title. Council tax charges for homes in Paulton are set out at the council website.

Q.

Is it necessary that I get a chancel search? We are buying in Paulton.

A.

In Paulton, some owners can be required to pay for repairs to nearby church land. A chancel search addresses if such a liability exists. Church lands in the local area include Holy Trinity.

Q.

Can you advise how we hold off paying stamp duty?

Stamp duty reduction should be treated with extreme caution, as such schemes are highly expensive and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.
