Q.

Please confirm the cheapest fee for a £573,000 property? We are trying to find an affordable Romiley conveyancing estimate.

A.

This catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra fees are frequently hidden in the small print. A conveyancing quote should list costs to be paid to third parties, such as the local authority, (disbursements).

Q.

My husband and I are planning to buy in Romiley. Are there any conservation areas?

A.

Locales deemed to be of architectural merit, such as mining villages, will be designated as areas of conservation. You may wish to contact the local council for more information, but your conveyancing lawyer will investigate this in detail during the property transaction.

Q.

Which issues are important to aim for fast conveyancing?

A.

It is a truism that finding a proactive and experienced solicitor is the key to faster conveyancing. Additionally, there are several tasks you could do to accelerate your conveyancing, including, contacting your solicitor regularly, answering any queries raised by the solicitor as soon as possible and ordering a property survey early in the transaction.

Q.

What will the Romiley property lawyer recommend if the building is inside the boundary of a Stockport local authority conservation area which has an un-consented doors fitted to it?

A.

Stockport council Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search conducted by your solicitor in the process of the conveyancing should confirm whether the property is in a designated conservation area and any evidence of consent for changes to the property will be supplied.Should no authority consents be available your Romiley conveyancing solicitor will give you professional advice on the best alternative such as purchasing an indemnity insurance policy or requesting retrospective consent from Stockport council.

Q.

Can you advise how I hold off paying for SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty is generally due for houses valued at over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty avoidance should not be considered when purchasing in Romiley. These schemes are costly and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later meaning that the full stamp duty amount will be payable, with potential fines. There have been several legal initiatives, such as disadvantaged area relief. A conveyancing solicitor should confirm whether you are eligible.

Q.

Will we need to get a chancel search if I am buying in Romiley by a rectory built in the 17th Century?

A.

Owners of property near to specific local church buildings are expected to contribute towards repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced.
