Q.

I need the cheapest conveyancing quote. What should I check?

A.

Numerous property lawyers promote supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional charges can increase the final bill. Any additional costs found in terms of engagement should be reasonable. A conveyancing quote should also clearly state any disbursements to be paid.Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What will affect land in Rotherham, and will they be thoroughly investigated?

A.

A range of contaminants can reduce the value of Rotherham property, and an environmental search should clarify to what extent a plot of land is impacted by contaminants like other land contamination. Orgreave Reclamation Site, Orgreave Road, South Yorkshire, S60 5TG is a cause of possible local contamination.

Q.

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.

Which areas of Rotherham are eligible for disadvantaged area relief?

A.

Disadvantaged areas are identified by council ward. Disadvantaged areas in Rotherham currently include Brampton, Park, Dalton, Maltby, Swinton, Wath, Central, Boston, Greasbrough, Herringthorpe, Rawmarsh East, Rawmarsh West and Thurcroft and Whiston. Update: As of the 2013/14 tax year, stamp duty relief for disadvantaged areas is no longer available.

Q.

Doing your own conveyancing without using a Rotherham property solicitor is becoming possible as a buyer of a house , but would it be really be shrewd ?

A.

Hypothetically speaking there are no reasons why a home mover shouldn't conduct bulk of the your own conveyancing unaided. That said, a Rotherham conveyancer typically handles a huge number of exercises e.g. chasing replies to enquiries and locating planning docs some of which require training.

Q.

Should I get a survey?

A.

We recommend that you arrange a property surveyor to carry out a survey if you are intending to buy in Rotherham. A range issues can affect a property, for example cracks in walls or rotten roof timbers, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

Are there any conservation areas in Rotherham?

A.

There are a range of conservation areas around Rotherham. Town Centre, Doncaster Road Town Centre and Greasborough Urban are among the conservation areas in Rotherham. The local council will offer more information about local conservation areas, and the conveyancing solicitor handling your purchase address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area.

Q.

What length of time can I account for conveyancing legal work require?

A.

The time taken to buy or sell property can vary, based on a number of issues which may affect the property. These may include if either party has a mortgage. With our property specialists, each client is undertaken as quickly as possible.
