May the conveyancing fees include any extra charges?

Unfortunately, buyer should read the terms of their conveyancing quote careful to identify any hidden fees. We never charge any hidden extra costs. Some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, which could be totally different to your final invoice.

Q.

What does 'gazumping' mean?

A.

This describes when one purchaser's offer is rejected, following initial acceptance, by the house seller, choosing instead a higher offer. There is almost always a risk of being gazumped. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a law firm as early as possible.

We are buying a property where the seller has unfortunately added ill-suited windows which might breach the Doncaster Road Town Centre conservation area criteria.

A.

A property lawyer will make enquiries to verify if the property is located within a conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have the required consents from the Rotherham planning authority.

Q.

Do you advise taking steps to hold off paying stamp duty tax?

A.

Stamp duty reduction must be treated with caution by purchasers in Rotherham. These schemes are expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later.
