Q.

What are the best rates for conveyancing for a £373,000 property?

A.

Many online and high street law firms promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional fees can inflate the final bill. The conveyancing quote should also clearly state any disbursements to be paid. Any charges needs to be fair. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

I am buying a sixties maisonette in a designated conservation area in Seaton. How do we find data on the state of upkeep of the Seaton conservation area?

A.

English Heritage have conducted a survey and created a list about the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in addition to the exposure to deterioration or improvement.

Local conservation areas are set up by East Devon who preserve things like the upkeep of public spaces to back illuminated signs.

Q.

Handling the legal work without a lawyer in Seaton appears to be becoming possible when selling a house. Would it actually be risky ?

A.

Hypothetically there are no arguments why you should not carry out the bulk of the legal and technical work without assistance.

That said, a property solicitor juggles a large number of tasks such as approving enquiries on searches or collating and preparing contract and package some of which really need a qualified solicitor.

Q.

What will the council tax cost on a Victorian Band A flat in Seaton?

A.

The homes pertinent council tax band will frequently be highlighted in the conveyancing report on title, and by the local authority.

Q.

How can a Seaton property lawyer report on the risk of local flooding in the Seaton area?

A.

The solicitor will conduct official property conveyancing searches that will include Seaton flood risk area data. Additionally a Seaton conveyancing solicitor might possibly recommend a more detailed (e.g. Homcheck) specialist local Seaton flood risk search.

Q.

Please recommend how to hold off paying for SDLT rates?

A.

Stamp duty is usually due for property purchases sold for more than 125,000 pounds. We do not recommend any stamp duty avoidance, because these schemes are highly expensive and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.

Q.

We are buying on a Seaton former industrial site. Could the top-soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

There are extensive regulations in place to curtail soil contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including radioactive waste.

Q.

What causes the conveyancing work to have so many delays?

A.

The legal work required to buy or sell property could take more time than budgeted, we, however, understand how frustrating these are and aim to minimise the burden of these delays by using fast search providers.
