Q.

I need to find a property solicitor that offers cheap conveyancing in Penryn. What are the risks?

A.

This matter catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing, however extra fees may increase the final invoice. Extra fees listed in terms of engagement needs to be fair and clearly defined and be applicable solely where the solicitor must complete unanticipated additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a period converted Band A property in Penryn?

A.

You should be provide your new house's council tax band as part of the conveyancer's title report. Council tax charges for Penryn are listed on the Cornwall council site. At the time of authoring (06 March 2013) rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £979.00

Q.

How is contaminated land in Penryn identified?

A.

Residential property in Penryn could be contaminated by many natural and human-influenced issues, such as sand or clay quarries or radioactive substances in the region. An environmental search will give more detail. Carnsew Quarry, Penryn, TR10 9DF is one such potential source of local contamination.

Q.

Handling the legal work without using a Penryn property solicitor is becoming possible as a buyer and seller of a flat , but would it be risky ?

A.

Legally speaking there is absolutely no argument at all why a home buyer cant apply this approach and embark on the legal work without assistance. The truth is however that a lawyer juggles a long list of actions including drafting contracts or identifying the most appropriate searches which really need experience.

Q.

My partner and I are buying in Penryn. Can I confirm that the house is in a designated conservation area?

A.

With over 8,000 such areas listed in England, the areas around Penryn include several conservation areas. You may wish to contact the local authority for more information, but your solicitor will address this during the conveyancing process.

Q.

Can we hold off paying stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty is due for homes over 125,000 pounds. We do not advise home movers undertake any stamp duty mitigation scheme. Such schemes are expensive and often likely to fail.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if I plan to purchase in the parish of Perran-ar-Worthal, near Penryn?

A.

The property lawyer could advise a chancel search. In Penryn's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on current owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past.

Q.

I am planning on buying a sixties investment property in a Penryn conservation area. How does one uncover information on the standard of repair?

A.

Local Penryn conservation areas are specified by Cornwall who preside over everything from trees to the thwarting of new developments. Following a campaign, English Heritage keep records on the state of repair of conservation areas as well as the trend.
