How do I find a discount conveyancing quote?


Both high-street and online property lawyers offer cheap conveyancing, however extra costs are often hiding in the terms which unwary homeowners fail to check. Any disbursements to be paid should be included on your quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.


When in the process should we instruct a conveyancer in Shaftesbury?


If you use a solicitor offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the earlier in the process you can instruct a solicitor, the better, as there are a number of tasks that can be carried out immediately. Some groups suggest waiting before instruction until the offer is accepted, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.


What does a Shaftesbury property lawyer do if the house we are intending to buy is inside the boundary of a local authority conservation area and has unsuitable doors installed?


North Dorset planning authority searches carried out by a solicitor in the process of the conveyancing should determine if the property is within a designated conservation area proof of formal approval for additions to the property will be required.


Do your panel of solicitors a lot of experience at the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Shaftesbury?

Our recommended conveyancing solicitors often do the legal work for bidders at auction. Our solicitors and licensed conveyancers have acted for numerous buyers at national and local property auctions including Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Adept purchasers will formally instruct a good lawyer as fast as they can to allow for a title report of the legal pack well in advance of the day of the auction.

After the actual auction, your property lawyer has to be focused on finish the conveyancing inside the usual 28 days as usually required by the terms and conditions of sale.


In about four weeks we are anticipating to move from our period property in Shaftesbury into a new flat in Portland at what point to choose a home removal company?


Most conveyancers will suggest that house movers delay arranging removals until after exchange of contracts as a home moving date wont have been decided.

Try Green Morley, 2 Salisbury Rd, Shaftesbury, SP7 8BT Telephone: 01747 854558.


For a property valued at £654000, what will be calculated for Stamp Duty Land Tax rates?


The SDLT that is payable is based on several factors, most importantly the purchase price. For a residential property bought for £654000, stamp duty is £26160 (information correct 15/01/2013).


Is the Stamp Duty Land Tax fee a disbursement or fee?


An ideal quote will clearly list all disbursements and fees. This charge is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in a quote for your conveyancing.


Will we need to get a chancel search if we are buying in Shaftesbury near a 13th Century rectory manor?


In Shaftesbury, where land was once owned by a lay rectors, new owners of that property may be obliged to pay for repairs to church property in the locality. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Shaftesbury Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Ecclesiastical properties in the area which may give rise to chancel liability include St James and St Peter.
