Q.

We need a cheap solicitor for selling a residence. Can you assist?

A.

Several firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra charges may be added into small print that unknowing sellers have not reviewed Any disbursements to be paid should be included on your conveyancing quote. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

The residence being bought is on a brownfield land. Can the soil still be contaminated?

A.

Restrictions exist in order to limit soil contamination, some contaminants, however, can impact the local environment years after exposure. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including industrial storage and groundwater contaminants like solvents.

Q.

We are intending to buy a converted chapel in Seaburn. Is a chancel search necessary?

The Seaburn conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. Chancel repair dues can be collected on owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. For property in the parish of Seaburn, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

How is stamp duty calculated and what should we budget for a £731000 home?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax depends on the property's price. On a £731000 house or flat in Seaburn, stamp duty will be £29240.

Q.

Do we need to get a chancel search if we are purchasing in Seaburn?

A.

The Law Lords decision in a landmark case 10 years ago reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must contribute towards church repairs. A chancel search is used to check that such a liability exists.

Q.

Are buyers often gazumped in Seaburn?

A.

This happens when an offer is, following agreement, later rejected by the seller, in preference to another buyer's offer. The risk of gazumping exists for almost any purchase. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing a solicitor early.

Q.

Can I avoid paying for SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty mitigation should be treated with extreme caution. Such schemes are costly and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed .

Q.

Is a building survey necessary when we are purchasing any property?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors firmly suggest that you arrange a property surveyor to carry out a survey. There are a wide range of issues which will impact a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address, such as wet rot or failed double glazing.
