Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £725,000 house?

A.

Many firms advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional fees may inflate the final invoice. The disbursements to be paid ought to be listed on any quote for conveyancing in Quedgeley Extrasfound in your solicitor's terms should be fair and clearly defined and be applied only where the conveyancer must complete additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

I am preparing to be moving out of our terraced home near Quedgeley into our next house in Northleach . When to instruct a removal company?

A.

Homeward Legals advice is for home movers to delay instructing the removals until such time as you and the other side has settled a formal date that occurs once contracts are signed. For a local Gloucestershire firm Newman Removals, 19 Druids Oak, Quedgeley, Gloucester, GL2 4YT on 01452 729007 or Gloucester Removals & Storage, 9 St. Albans Rd, Gloucester, GL2 5FW Phone: 01452 307070.

Q.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like shelving?

A.

Commonly, fixtures are permanently fixed to walls, floors or ceilings securely and fixtures are free-standing. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

The agent has named a law firm. Do I need to instruct this solicitor?

A.

It is not uncommon for agents in Ferndown to recommend a solicitors firm. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may select the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

What is the council tax on a residential semi-detached Band B property in Quedgeley?

Q.

How is stamp duty assessed and how much do we need to budget for a £158000 residential property?

A.

Stamp Duty will depend on a small number of factors, including the purchase price. It will be £1580 on a £158000 property (source: www.hmrc.gov.uk, 17/02/2013).

Q.

What sort of local checks in connection with the potential risk of possible flooding in the Gloucestershire region will my conveyancer in Quedgeley actually apply for?

A.

An important part of the conveyancing protocol involves the conveyancing lawyer conducting environmental searches that set out information regarding risk of flooding in Quedgeley. A more involved search (most likely a Landmark Database search) could be proposed by your conveyancing solicitor in Quedgeley if the results of the environmental search suggest a risk of flooding.
