Q.

We are trying to find a discount conveyancing quote. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Numerous firms offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional costs are often hiding in small print. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

What are Sedbergh's conveyancing searches?

A.

Searches are an accepted collection of queries undertaken in the interest of the purchaser, for example a chancel search. These are not used to identify physical problems such as failed double glazing.

Q.

Which particular searches should a Sedbergh conveyancer apply for a Sedbergh flat?

A.

The standard conveyancing protocol is to obtain these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search, Environment Search and Gypsum Mining Search and, depending on certain criteria, specific searches, which might include Development reports.

Q.

What precautions can we take to bypass paying stamp duty tax?

A.

Homeward Legal strongly advise against any stamp duty mitigation scheme, as such schemes are highly expensive and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself.

Q.

We are buying a property where the seller appears to have installed out of place roof antenna to the maisonette which we think may infringe on Sedbergh conservation area criteria.

A.

A solicitor will establish whether your new home is affected by a conservation area and whether any modifications have the necessary permissions from the South Lakeland council.

Q.

Will our conveyancing solicitor in Sedbergh report back to me about the amount to be paid of council tax for a Band E property before completing on the purchase?

A.

The lawyer will contact the appropriate council to discover the applicable council tax rates, which will be written in the conveyancing report on title.

Council tax rates for residents of Sedbergh are listed online at the South Lakeland council website. On 12 November 2012 rates for all bands are:

  • Band H - £3,133.00

Q.

May the legal charges take into account any additional costs?

A.

No. Homeward Legal never charge any hidden extra costs for conveyancing in Sedbergh. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, meaning that your final bill could be much higher.

Q.

Which areas of Sedbergh are safeguarded by a conservation area?

A.

There are a range of conservation areas near or within Sedbergh. Sedbergh itself is named as a conservation area. These restrictions create additional maintenance and repair responsibilities, but the benefits will include security that the surroundings are unlikely to change.
