Q.

How do we find a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

Many online and high street solicitors advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions which unwary homeowners fail to check. Extra costs included in the solicitor's terms should be fair. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

The home being bought is on a ex-industrial site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste like rubidium?

A.

Even where some contamination has occurred in Rickmansworth, risk levels are usually low. Metal contamination of soil in Rickmansworth is more likely to occur near disused factories or waste management sites. Data on other contaminants, like trichloroethylene and groundwater contaminants like industrial chemicals, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

The purchase is completing next October, what should be calculated for Stamp Duty Land Tax?

A.

Stamp Duty will depend on the home's value. On a £898000 residential property, stamp duty will be £35920 (accurate March 2013).

Q.

Which local factors can contaminate land in Rickmansworth, and will they be properly investigated?

A.

Residential property in Rickmansworth may have been contaminated by many human activities. Contaminants like local historic industrial processes or proximity to landfill sites will be considered as part of the environmental searches. Great Westwood Landfill, Fir Tree Hill, Hertfordshire, WD3 4LY is a source of potential local contamination in Rickmansworth.

Q.

What does a Rickmansworth property solicitor recommend if the building we want to buy is situated in a conservation area in Three Rivers which seems to have unlawful PVC windows fitted to it?

A.

The local authority LLC1 searches conducted by your Rickmansworth conveyancing solicitor during the legal process should find out the existence of the appropriate consent for any alterations to the property.

Q.

Are we advised to get a chancel search if we are intending to purchase in the parish of Ayot St Lawrence?

A.

Whether you are buying a home in Rickmansworth or elsewhere in the county, the property solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. In Rickmansworth's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on current owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

How much time may conveyancing to purchase an apartment take? We have a buyer ready.

A.

For most property in Rickmansworth, the length of time required to transfer a home is not wholly predictable, according to a range of issues which may affect the property. With Homeward Legal, your sale or purchase is handled quickly, and to the highest standard of service.
