Q.

How do we get fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

Various law firms purport to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra charges are often hiding in small print. These terms are often ignored by excited sellers and buyers, eager to get underway. Any additional costs ought to be fair and reasonable. Any disbursements ought to be defined on the conveyancing quote

Q.

We are buying a property where the seller looks to have installed roof aerials which I think might possibly break Fobbing conservation area criteria.

A.

Rossendale local authority searches conducted by your Rossendale conveyancing solicitor during the conveyancing process should confirm whether the property is in a conservation area proof of consent for modifications will be required.

Q.

We are going to buy in Rossendale. Can we claim disadvantaged area relief?

A.

Disadvantaged areas in Rossendale are identified by council ward. Disadvantaged areas in the local area Rossendale include Greensclough, Longholme, Worsley and Stacksteads. Update: As of the 2013/14 tax year, stamp duty relief for disadvantaged areas is no longer available.

Q.

How much time does conveyancing legal work take? The house being transacted is also in the area.

A.

On average, the number of weeks required to transfer a home is not wholly predictable. This is based on a broad set of concerns, for example, if there is a mortgage. Nationally, the average is up to twelve weeks, but we drive the process forwards, completing within eight weeks.

Q.

Does our Rossendale conveyancer report back to me about the amount to be paid of the council tax on a Band H maisonette before completion?

A.

The property solicitor will speak to the governing Rossendale local council to ascertain the most up to date council tax rates, which should then be detailed in the title report. The latest council tax rates for residents of Rossendale are set out in detail on the Rossendale local authority website. At the time of authoring on 06 August 2012 rates are as follows:

  • Band G - £2,630.00
  • Band H - £3,156.00

Q.

Is the SDLT fee a fee or a disbursement?

A.

An ideal quote will clearly list all fees and disbursements. This charge is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your quote.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Rossendale?

A.

Rossendale is located in Rossendale Borough Council, Town Centre Offices, Lord Street, Rawtenstall, Lancashire, BB4 7LZ, Tel: 01706 217 777

Q.

My flatmate and I must achieve a very fast sale, does Homeward Legal any especially very fast Rossendale solicitors ?

A.
