How do I get low cost conveyancing?


Several law firms offer cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms which unwary buyers fail to check. Applicable disbursements should also be clearly stated on your quote Charges needs to be fair and reasonable and be applied only where the conveyancer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Can you advise how to get out of paying for SDLT rates?


We firmly advise against any stamp duty reduction scheme, as such schemes are often uneconomical and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later imposing fines and reviewing all your revenue matters.

The routine legal procedure is to obtain the following Local Authority, Drainage Search, Environmental, Tin Mining Search and China Search and perhaps specific local searches for example Official Search of Part with Priority (OS2).


What can a Porthleven property solicitor advise if the building is situated in a conservation area in Cornwall local authority which has unfitting roof aerials added?

Local authority LLC1 searches carried out by your Porthleven property lawyer during the legal process will find out whether the property is in a designated conservation area and any evidence of formal approval for alterations will be requested.


Do I need to get a Porthleven house surveyor to review this property purchase?


We suggest that you order a house survey. Numerous defects will impact a property, for example roof spread.


Yorkshire Bank is our mortgage lender, what do we need to know?


Some lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, resulting in greater conveyancing costs for house purchasers if a second chosen solicitor is required by their lender. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of most mortgage lenders.


If we are intending to purchase near Porthleven, in the parish of St Mellion, do we need a chancel search?


Regardless of the Porthleven parish you are purchasing in, the property lawyer may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on current owners of a home where church councils have previously chosen not to do so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.
