Q.

How do I get the best rates for conveyancing for a £346,000 residence?

A.

Many online and high street firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional charges are often hiding in the terms of engagement which unwary buyers fail to check. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Will I need to get a chancel search if I am buying next to a church constructed in the 1500s in Radford?

A.

As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Radford which was once owned by a 'lay rectors' can be liable for upkeep of an old church building. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land in Radford must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Church properties in the local area where a chancel search may be appropriate include All Souls, St Peter Old and St. Nicholas.

Q.

Does the property report compiled by the conveyancing solicitor in Radford investigate the applicable rates of council tax for a Band F townhouse before exchange of contracts?

A.

Your solicitor will write to the Nottingham local council to ascertain the most up to date council tax band and rates, which will be written in the report on title. The latest tax rates for homes in Radford are set

out in detail on the Nottingham local authority site. Currently (05 August 2012) the different rates are:

  • Band A - £1,076.00
  • Band B - £1,255.00
  • Band C - £1,434.00
  • Band D - £1,614.00
  • Band E - £1,972.00
  • Band F - £2,331.00
  • Band G - £2,689.00
  • Band H - £3,227.00

Q.

Would arranging a building survey be required if we are buying a property, irrespective of its condition, in Radford?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors firmly recommend that most purchasers arrange a RICS survey when purchasing in Radford. Buyers should be aware that there are many defects that can negatively affect a property, such as unsafe chimney circulation. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

What can our searches cost?

A.

With Homeward Legal, a client in Radford is expected to pay at a maximum £249 for a standard search bundle. In Radford, the standard bundle of searches included an environmental search and a mining search.

Q.

What is the best point to one make arrangements with the home removal company?

A.

Best advice is for home movers to delay agreeing a removal van until such time as you and the other side has confirmed an absolute completion date that generally happens after contracts are signed. Local information can be sought from U Fill Ltd, Unit 8 9 Genesis Pk/Midland Way, Nottingham, NG7 3EF Phone: 0800 052 6226 or All Moves UK Ltd, Unit 1 Lewis Industrial Estate Radford Rd, Nottingham, NG7 7NQ Tel: 0115 978 1549.

Q.

Could my property legal fees conceal any hidden charges?

A.

Homeward Legal will not charge any additional costs. Some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, which could be totally different to your final invoice.

Q.

What particular property searches will the Radford property solicitor get for a Radford property?

A.

Normal legal protocol will be to get the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search, Environment Search and Gypsum Mining and occasionally particular searches, like Index Map Search.
