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.

How many weeks may conveyancing take?

A.

The amount of time needed to transact a property may vary. This is affected by potentially many legal considerations which can include if the property being bought or sold is leasehold. With our property specialists, the matter is handled quickly, and to the highest standard of service.

Q.

If we plan to purchase in the parish of Bicton, do we need a chancel search?

A.

The lawyer could advise a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the property being bought is located. Through some Parochial Church Councils have determined to exact chancel repairs on owners, there is no guarantee that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not automatically be the case for future owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

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 precautions can we take to avoid paying SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty reduction scheme is not advised, because these schemes are costly and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed .

Q.

What can a Salcombe property lawyer do if the maisonette we want to buy is located in a local authority conservation area and has unsympathetic removal of chimney stacks fitted?

A.

A solicitor will carry out searches identify if your proposed purchase is affected by a designated conservation area and whether any modifications have necessary consents.

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.

Virgin is going to be our lender - what do we need to know?

A.

Buyers should be aware that some lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, which may result in increased legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal are able to act for all large lenders in the UK so that you will not be required to pay the lender's costs.
