Q.

We need to find a low cost conveyancing estimate. What should be watch out for?

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra charges are frequently hidden in small print. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. A quote for conveyancing in Plymstock must also state any disbursements to be paid. Costs found in your solicitor's terms should be reasonable. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

What type of due diligence in relation to the risk of local flooding in the Devon area will a property solicitor in Plymstock include in the report on title?

A.

An important part of the conveyancing protocol involves the solicitor conducting conveyancing searches that give specific information on the Plymstock flooding.

Q.

What is the council tax on a Forties end of terrace Band A property in Plymstock?

A.

Your pertinent council tax band will frequently be set out as part of the conveyancing report on title, and by the governing local authority. The latest tax rates for properties in Plymstock are tabled online at the Plymouth local authority site. As at, 17 December 2012, the rates are:

  • Band A - £986.00

Q.

I am anticipating to be moving out of our semi detached property near Plymstock to a maisonette in Plympton . What is the right point to instruct a removals firm?

A.

Your solicitor would tend to recommend that home buyers and sellers hold off arranging removals until exchange of contracts as generally an absolute date wont have been set. Try Kirtley Removals, 67 Church Rd, Wembury, Plymouth, PL9 0JJ Tel: 01752 301177 or Every Day Moves, 40 44 Hooe Rd, Plymouth, PL9 9RG Call: 01752 402020.

Q.

Will we need to get a chancel search? I am purchasing a Plymstock home on the same street as a church constructed around the 1600s.

A.

The judgement in a landmark case in 2003 confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Following a change in the law, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Plymstock ecclesiastical properties include St Mary and All Saints.

Q.

What length of time does conveyancing take in Plymstock?

A.

In general, the amount of time needed to buy or sell property does vary. This is based on potentially many issues which can include if the property being bought or sold is leasehold. The national average is 8 to 12 weeks, we however will, wherever feasible, work towards a six-week timescale.

Q.

Should we order a chancel search if I am intending to buy in the parish of Brixham, near Plymstock?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor could recommend a chancel search, whichever parish where the building being bought is found. Through some parish councils have opted to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, there is no way to be certain that a parish which has not imposed liability will remain liability-free for new owners. For property in the parish of Brixham, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Myself and my partner are planning to buy in Plymstock. How can we find out if the house is in a conservation area?

A.

The areas in or near Plymstock include numerous conservation areas. The conveyancing solicitor handling your purchase should be able to advise further and confirm potential liability for unauthorised works.
