Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? I am looking for low cost conveyancing in Pontefract.

A.

Many solicitors advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra costs will be included in the terms and conditions. Extrasfound in the solicitor's terms should be fair.

Q.

Can you advise how I defer paying SDLT?

A.

We do not recommend any form of stamp duty scheme. These 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.

Q.

Pontefract property lawyers carry out formal conveyancing searches when instructed to act for a purchase client but what actual searches?

A.

Q.

How soon should you instruct a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

Whether buying or selling, the earlier, the better. Some sources recommend postponing instruction until the 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 buying a rectory in Sandal Magna. Is a chancel search specified?

A.

The solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is ordered, regardless of the parish where the residence being bought is found. Chancel repair may be imposed on the current owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Several contaminants can impact property, like potentially contaminative use of nearby land. An environmental search will give more information. Land/premises At, Long Lane, West Yorkshire, WF8 3JX is a source of potential contamination in Pontefract.
