Q.

I need to find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Salcombe. What do we need to consider?

A.

This matter catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing, but additional fees may be added into the small print. This small print is often not read by buyers and sellers in a hurry. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Is simultaneous exchange and completion a disbursement or fee?

A.

Disbursements and fees ought to be stated on a quote, with no additional costs in the terms and conditions. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a conveyancing quote.

Q.

In relation to the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England, we are concerned that environmental searches might not be sufficient?

A.

Flood risk searches carried out by the Salcombe solicitor should also include a more detailed search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

It is not uncommon for buyers to contact a close neighbour for that additional local history.

Q.

Is it advisable that I get a chancel search? We are buying a Salcombe home close by parish grounds.

A.

Property owners neighbouring specific local church buildings may be required to cover the cost of repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Salcombe properties is likely to exist. Your conveyancing lawyer will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Salcombe church lands where chancel liability may apply include Holy Trinity.

Q.

Fixtures and fittings are defined as what?

A.

Commonly, fixtures are fixed elements, such as light fixtures to the property and fixtures are free-standing. Often, this issue is not considered, making it essential that the list of fixtures and fittings to be sold with the property is agreed early.

Q.

How do we determine stamp duty rates?

A.

The Stamp Duty you must pay depends on the purchase price. On a £858000 property, stamp duty will be £34320.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Salcombe?

A.

Salcombe is located in South Hams District Council, Follaton House, Plymouth Road, Totnes, Devon, TQ9 5NE, phone: 01803 861 235

Q.

What kind of local checks concerning the potential risk of possible flooding to properties in Devon will a Salcombe property lawyer be able to conduct?

A.

A key component in the conveyancing procedure of purchasing a property involves your lawyer conducting conveyancing and environmental searches for information regarding Salcombe flood risk area. A more specific set of searches (e.g Homecheck) may be recommended by a conveyancing solicitor in Salcombe if the results of the environmental search show that there is a flood risk.
