Q.

How do I get the best conveyancing rates for a £218k property?

A.

Many firms claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional charges will be included in the solicitor's terms. Additional costs included in terms and conditions should be reasonable.

Q.

We have taken out a quote from you. Could there be any hidden costs?

A.

It is unfortunate that hidden fees are not uncommon in conveyancing. We do not charge any hidden fees. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

Q.

If we are purchasing a Shenley flat conversion on the same road as a church constructed in the 14th Century, do I need to get a chancel search?

A.

Property owners near to church property in the locality must contribute towards repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was

not carried out. A solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Shenley churches include St Martin.

Q.

We are buying a Shenley property with Topaz Finance, what do I need to check?

A.

Buyers in Shenley should consider that, in some cases, lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, which may result in increased conveyancing costs for purchasers. Homeward Legal can act for the majority of lenders in the UK so that the buyer will not have to pay the lender's legal fees.

Q.

What will the Shenley property solicitor advise if the house we hope to buy is in a Milton Keynes council conservation area which seems to have conspicuous new windows installed?

A.

Milton Keynes planning authority Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search conducted by your Shenley conveyancing solicitor as part of the conveyancing will find out whether the property is within a designated conservation area and evidence of Coal Authority consent for alterations will be supplied.

Q.

How can we protect ourselves from getting gazumped?

A.

The custom of deciding to reject a previously accepted offer after a second buyer has made a better offer is called gazumping. There is almost always a chance of gazumping. You should instruct an efficient solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of gazumping.

Q.

What factors will contaminate land in Shenley, and should they be a concern?

A.

A broad range of contaminants could impact residential property in Shenley, and factors including potentially contaminative use of nearby land and sand or gravel pits should be reported on during conveyancing searches. Moor Mill Landfill Site, Moor Mill Lane, Hertfordshire, AL2 3TZ is one such potential source of local contamination.

Q.

For a property valued at £738000, what will be determined for stamp duty rates?

A.

The Stamp Duty Land Tax due is dependent on the value of the property. Stamp duty will be £29520 on a £738000 house.
