Q.

How do we get the best conveyancing rates in Shinfield for a £779,000 home?

A.

Several conveyancers advertise so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional charges are often hiding in the terms and conditions, left unread by preoccupied home owners Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Do you have good solicitors that look after the conveyancing for auction properties in Shinfield?

A.

Our residential property lawyers commonly do the legal work for bidders at auction. We consistently advocate auction buyers to instruct a CQS conveyancing solicitor well in advance of the day of the auction for a review of the legal pack.

Subsequently, immediately after the day of bidding you are the lawyer needs to be geared up to carry out the purchase legal work in under 28 days, a normal requirement of terms and conditions of sale.

Q.

How is contaminated land in Shinfield checked?

A.

Several contaminants may impact property, and an environmental search should reveal whether a specific plot of land is impacted by local contaminants such as petroleum and fuel sites. Contamination can be caused by local waste sites, including Barlows Plantation Landfill, Off Silchester Road, Berkshire, RG7 4PS.

Q.

Which government body is under obligation for safeguarding the state of repair of the conservation areas in Shinfield?

Local conservation areas are set up by the local authority (Wokingham) who manage everything from including things like ugly highway signs, removal of front gardens for parking and area development.

Following a campaign, English Heritage keep information on the state of repair of conservation areas in Berkshire and throughout England in addition to the vulnerability to deterioration or improvement.

Q.

What type of local authority searches about the risk of floods in the Berkshire area will a conveyancer in Shinfield carry out?

A.

A vital step in the conveyancing procedure of buying a property involves your conveyancing lawyer conducting property environmental searches that offer some details on the Shinfield flooding. A substantially more thorough flood risk search (most likely a Landmark Database search) might be recommended by a qualified conveyancing solicitor in Shinfield if in the event that the initial conveyancing searches show that there is a potential flood risk to the property.

Q.

We plan to buy a rectory in the parish of Finchampstead. Will a chancel search be required?

A.

Whichever Shinfield parish you are purchasing in, a property lawyer is likely to recommend a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have exercised their right to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, there is no way to be certain that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not automatically be the case for future owners. For property in the parish of Finchampstead, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

How do I defer paying stamp duty land tax?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is payable on residential property sold for more than £125,000. Stamp duty mitigation is not advised, because these schemes are expensive and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.

Q.

Which specific conveyancing searches should the Shinfield property lawyer carry out when instructed on a Shinfield property?

A.

The regular legal protocol is to obtain Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search as well as any special local Shinfield searches, which may include a Planning report.
