Q.

How do I get a discount conveyancing quote in Ravenshead?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many law firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. A quote should list the disbursements to be paid.The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

Are there many conservation areas in Ravenshead?

A.

The local areas in or near Ravenshead will include a range of conservation areas. These restrictions can add to maintenance costs, but the benefits will include protection for trees and other flora. Your solicitor will provide more details.

Q.

Do you need to get a chancel liability search if I am buying a property near land owned by the church in Ravenshead?

A.

The outcome of Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must contribute towards the cost of church repairs. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land in Ravenshead must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Ravenshead Church of England properties where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Peter.

Q.

Does your firm look after the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Ravenshead?

A.

Our firm is familiar with auction buyers and sellers. Traditionally unusually constructed houses like unregistered properties, are listed at property auctions which tend to demand more fact-finding by the lawyer. We therefore strongly suggest buyers to decide on a fast solicitor well before the auction for a full report of the auction pack.

Following the actual auction, a lawyer will need to be focused on conclude the transaction in less than the usual 28 days as usually required by the terms of sale.

Q.

Could Ravenshead soil be contaminated by nickel?

A.

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Ravenshead, but an area will only be identified as 'contaminated land' if the risk to human life or the environment is deemed unacceptable. The local authority for Ravenshead will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

I am buying a £1.038mil property in Ravenshead, how is stamp duty calculated?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax will depend on the house or flat's price. On a £1.038mil house, stamp duty will be £51900.

Q.

We are going to buy a property, and have a quote from you. Are there any hidden fees?

A.

We do not charge any additional costs. Some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs. The final bill you receive may be much more.

Q.

How soon is it appropriate to instruct a solicitor to handle our purchase?

A.

In simple terms, the earlier in the process you can instruct a solicitor, the better, as there are a number of tasks which may be carried out very early in the process. Instructing a firm early for a purchase enables you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, relevant information can be sourced sooner (this is particularly true for leasehold properties).
