Q.

How do we find a cheap solicitor in Skipton for buying a leasehold property?

A.

Confusion over this matter affects many buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many solicitors offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional fees will be included in the terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers, eager to get underway. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What amount of time can the conveyancing process need? We need to move quickly.

A.

The length of time taken to sell or purchase residential property is not wholly predictable. This wide range results from numerous issues, for example, the tenure of the property. Nationwide, the average is around ten weeks, whereas Homeward Legal take a more proactive attitude, pushing a transaction to complete within 8 weeks if possible.

Q.

Could arsenic contaminate land in Skipton?

A.

There are comprehensive regulations in order to limit soil contamination. Also considering issues such as chlorine and groundwater contamination, contaminants affecting Skipton property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

What does the Skipton conveyancing lawyer do if the home we hope to purchase is located in a registered conservation area and has an un-consented windows fitted?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor will always ascertain if the property is located within a designated conservation area and whether any alterations have the essential permission from the local council. In the event that no authority consents be produced, your Skipton conveyancer will advise you of all options like purchasing an indemnity insurance or getting retrospective consent from the council.

Q.

In about four weeks we are hoping to be moving out of our detached property in Skipton into our new property in Settle what is the best point to appoint a house removal firm?

A.

Our recommendation is to put off agreeing a removal company until after both sides have fixed your completion date that occurs once contracts have exchanged.

Q.

How is stamp duty tax measured, and what will it be on a £380000 Skipton residence?

A.

Stamp Duty is based on the purchase price. On a £380000 residential property, stamp duty will be £11400.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Skipton?
