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.
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.
Conveyancing searches are questions requested by your property solicitor. Searches will only cover the legal condition of the property's title.
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.

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.
Conservation areas define streets and neighbourhoods of historic or architectural significance. Living in a conservation area can mean preservation of an area's historic charm, but the restrictions create additional maintenance and repair responsibilities. A lawyer will confirm potential liability for unauthorised works.Q.
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.
