Q.

Is Homeward Legal able to act quickly on the conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Retford?

All of our property conveyancers regularly do the legal work for buyers and sellers at auction.

Thereafter, following the day of bidding, your lawyer should be ready for get through the conveyancing process within the 4 week time frame, a normal requirement of terms of sale.

Q.

Will we need a chancel liability search? We are buying a home on the same street as a parsonage in Retford.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Retford Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Churches in the local area include St Michael the Archangel, St Saviour and St Swithun.

Q.

How does a lawyer in Retford report back on the risk of a flood in the Retford area?

A.

An important step in the conveyancing protocol involves the lawyer conducting environmental searches that offer certain details with regard to Retford flood risk.

Q.

Conveyancing searches may be standard procedure but considering current events for example the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands are they the best way to see enough about the Retford risk of flooding?

A.

A diligent Retford lawyer will recommend that you carry out food risk searches if the standard conveyancing searches flag up a Retford flooding risk.

Why not converse with a close neighbour for that further comfort.

Q.

Does Retford include many conservation areas?

A.

There are a range of areas of conservation in or near Retford. The local council will be able to advise further about local areas of conservation, and the solicitor handling your purchase will discuss the relevant responsibilities.

Q.

Which environmental factors can impact land in Retford. Will they be properly investigated?

A.

Land in Retford could be contaminated by a range of naturally-occurring factors. Contaminants like waste treatment sites in the area or existing and proposed overhead electricity cables will be detailed in an appropriate search.

Q.

How do we get out of paying out for stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

SDLT is generally due for purchases over 125,000 pounds. Homeward Legal do not advise conveyancing clients expose their finances to any stamp duty mitigation. Such schemes are expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed meaning that the full stamp duty amount, interest and additional fines will be imposed.
