Q.

How do we get the best rates for conveyancing in Scarborough for a £388,000 house?

A.

Both high-street and online law firms offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. Any additional fees included in terms of engagement needs to be fair and reasonable. They come into force only if your conveyancer is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

If land is found to be contaminated, can the soil be inexpensively remediated?

A.

Remediation of contaminated land in Scarborough can often be possible. For Scarborough, remediation is often the responsibility of local authorities to arrange. Speak to Fineland Turf, 45 Westfield Av, Scarborough, YO12 6DG for additional information.

Q.

Does your company get involved in property auction conveyancing in Scarborough?

A.

Homeward Legal is able to act for buyers at auction. Often unusual houses are bought in property auctions and these require further investigation before exchange. We therefore encourage bidders to select a property conveyancing lawyer prior to the auction day for a review of the sellers legal pack.

Post auction, the property conveyancing lawyer needs to be able to concentrate on rapidly complete the purchase within 28 days as conventionally required by the auction conditions.

Q.

In 3 months we are going to be finally moving from our semi detached residence in Scarborough into a flat in Pickering . At what stage to appoint a home removal firm?

A.

Most lawyers tend to recommend that you hold off booking a removals company until exchange of contracts as usually a final date wont have been confirmed. Try A 2 B Removals & Storage, 9A St. Helens Sq, Scarborough, YO11 1EU Tel: 01723 350661 or Filey Removals & Storage, 8 Shire Close, Eastfield, Scarborough, YO11 3YZ Call: 01723 515444.

Q.

What can we do to bypass paying stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

Stamp duty commonly must be paid for purchases over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty mitigation is not advised, as such schemes are expensive and can be very unlikely to succeed. There have been a range of government initiatives, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'.

Q.

I have got a quote from you. Could there be any hidden fees?

A.

No. Homeward Legal will never charge any hidden extra fees under any circumstances. You should be aware that some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

Q.

Is contaminated land in Scarborough a concern?

A.

Property in Scarborough may be contaminated by many environmental concerns, and an environmental search should reveal whether a plot of land could be affected by local contaminants like potentially contaminative use of nearby land and infilled land. Contamination can be caused by local landfill sites, including Flixton Quarry, Filey Road, North Yorkshire, YO11 3JD.

Q.

What kind of searches about the risk of a flood in the Yorkshire, North Riding region will my Scarborough conveyancing solicitor actually apply for?

A.

An essential part of the legal procedure of purchasing a property involves the conveyancer applying for environmental searches that provide you with details on the subject of Scarborough flood risk area data. Additionally your solicitor in Scarborough might possibly recommend a substantially more local Scarborough area flood search.
