Q.

Sandbanks area information

The closest hospital for Sandbanks is St Anns Poole.

Q.

We are trying to find an affordable Sandbanks conveyancing quote. How do we get a quote?

A.

This issue catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms promote supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However extra fees are often hiding in the small print. These terms are often ignored by excited home owners, eager to get underway. Any fees included in terms and conditions should be reasonable. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Should we get a house survey for this property purchase?

A.

It is strongly recommended that purchasers arrange a home surveyor. Buyers should be aware that there are a wide range of defects which have a negative impact on a property, for example cracked roof tiles. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

How is stamp duty assessed, and how much should we pay on a £786k Sandbanks residence?

A.

The Stamp Duty rate that will be due is dependent on the valuation. On a £786k house or flat, stamp duty will be £31440 (correct March 2013).

Q.

What length of time should the conveyancing process usually take, according to your estimates? I am purchasing a flat in Sandbanks.

The amount of time required to buy or sell a home will vary. This is based on a number of legal considerations including whether a mortgage lender requires particular searches. Nationwide, the average is around ten weeks, we however take a proactive approach, driving the sale or purchase to complete sooner.

Q.

The property being purchased is on a brownfield land. Is the soil potentially contaminated by waste minerals like arsenic?

A.

Sandbanks and the surrounding region has a legacy of chemical contamination. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Sandbanks, including local authorities.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if I am purchasing in the parish of Piddlehinton, near Sandbanks?

A.

Whichever Sandbanks parish in which you are buying, a solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair dues can be collected on the owners of a property where church councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

I am buying a 1950s building within a conservation area in Sandbanks, how do I locate information in respect of the standard of upkeep?

A.

Conservation areas in Sandbanks are nominated by Poole who govern conservation area concerns from street furniture to the improvement of poorly-maintained public spaces.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have assembled details on the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas as well as the exposure to deterioration or improvement.

Q.

We ideally want to complete on the legal work on our renovated home in under 30 days, are you fast Sandbanks conveyancing solicitors ?

A.

Often house buying solicitors may be slow moving which can add a lot of concern to the property conveyancing process.

Homeward Legals solicitors approach is different as we use the latest IT and integrated systems .

We always allocate sellers carefully selected conveyancing property lawyer trained to communicate with the whole home buyer and seller chain e.g. local councils, to attain a fast completion.
