Q.

We need a cheap solicitor to sell a auction house. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Several conveyancers claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional fees will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Additional fees should be fair and clearly defined and come into force only if the conveyancer must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What length of time will we account for conveyancing legal work require?

A.

For the majority of property purchasers, the length of time required to transact property will vary. This is affected by a number of issues which may affect the property, such as if a property is leasehold or freehold. With our solicitors, every sale receives fast and efficient service.

Q.

What due diligence about the uncertain risk of local flooding to properties in Neath Port Talbot will the property lawyer in Seven Sisters report back to us on?

A.

An integral component in the legal due diligence process carried out when buying a property involves the conveyancing solicitor conducting environmental searches that go in some details on the Seven Sisters flood risk.

Q.

What actions can we take to hold off paying out for HMRC stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty reduction is not recommended, as such schemes are often uneconomical and can be very unlikely to succeed.

Q.

What authority is on charge of for watching over the status of repair of Seven Sisters conservation areas?

A.

Local conservation areas like area development, addition of hard standings to the front of houses or derelict buildings are presided over by Powys. English Heritage have put together information about the state of conservation areas along with the risk of deterioration.

Q.

Should we opt for a solicitors firm referred by my estate agent?

A.

Agent referrals are a commonplace path whereby buyers get a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, some agents choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

It seems that chromium soil contamination may be an issue in Seven Sisters. Please advise.

A.

There are comprehensive regulations to curtail soil contamination. Other sources of contaminated land include groundwater contamination.

Q.

What can a Seven Sisters conveyancing solicitor recommend if the home I want to buy is in a Powys planning authority conservation area which appears to have unsympathetic window frames fitted to it?

A.

Powys planning authority enquiries conducted by the solicitor as part of the conveyancing should determine the existence of suitable consent for additions to the building. If no local authority consents be available your conveyancing solicitor will give you professional advice on the options for example taking out an indemnity insurance policy or obtaining retrospective approval from Powys council.
