Q.

I need to find a low cost conveyancing quote. What are the risks?

A.

Several property lawyers offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms that property buyers and sellers often do not check. The conveyancing quote must also state any disbursements. Any extra fees which are listed in the terms should be reasonable and clear and only be applied if your lawyer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

What sort of environmental conveyancing searches in relation to the potential risk of floods in the Nottinghamshire area will my conveyancing solicitor in Ruddington actually apply for?

A.

A key part of the legal due diligence process involves your conveyancing solicitor carrying out environmental searches that provide details with regard to risk of flooding in Ruddington. Additionally a solicitor in Ruddington may recommend a more in-depth local flood search.

Q.

How soon should I find a solicitor to handle our transaction?

A.

In the vast majority of cases, the earlier in the process you can instruct a conveyancing solicitor, the better. Instructing your solicitor earlier could mitigate the chance of the other side pulling out.

Q.

Do you work with mortgage lenders with Ruddington offices?

Q.

The property being bought is on a brownfield land. What should we do regarding rubidium (Rb) soil contamination?

A.

There are extensive regulations imposed to manage soil contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as groundwater contamination and trichloroethylene, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Would you state taking precautions to bypass paying stamp duty tax?

A.

Stamp duty is payable on home purchases priced at over 125,000 pounds. Homeward Legal firmly advise against any stamp duty reduction. Such schemes are costly and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself.

Q.

Where can I go about check whether the Ruddington conservation area is at risk?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage administer records in relation to the state of conservation areas in Ruddington and across England along with the exposure to standards slipping. Local conservation areas are specified by the local authority (Rushcliffe) who govern everything from including things like neglected buildings, the colours of paint used and public spaces.

Q.

Does Ruddington include any areas of conservation?

A.

Conservation areas denote local areas of 'special architectural and historic interest'. The benefits of such restrictions will include protection for trees and other flora, but they create additional maintenance and repair responsibilities.
