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.

What can a Seaton conveyancing solicitor do when the property we are buying is located in a local authority conservation area and has out of place dormer windows added?

A.

East Devon council search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) conducted by your Seaton property lawyer during the conveyancing process will see if the property is within a conservation area and evidence of local authority approval for additions to the property will be supplied.

Q.

How can we avoid gazumping?

A.

This occurs when a seller approves an offer and then rejects it, selecting instead a greater offer. This may happen weeks into a purchase. There is almost always a danger of being gazumped. The first step in reducing

the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct an efficient solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer.

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.

I've had a conveyancing quote from you. Are there any extra costs?

A.

We never charge any additional charges regardless of circumstances.

Q.

Can you confirm which Seaton lenders you can work with. Which panels are your solicitors members of?

A.

We work with the majority of lenders serving Seaton home purchasers. Seaton lenders and mortgage specialists include Mortgagefinders, 33 Dunsford Rd, Exeter, EX4 1LQ, Financial Detectives, Po Box 880, Taunton, TA1 9HJ, and Wyatt Michael, Queensgate Ho/48 Queen St, Exeter, EX4 3SR. Your conveyancing solicitors can provide more information.

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 can the searches cost?

A.

Searches range in cost. Less common searches, used in addition to a standard bundle, include a British waterways search.
