Q.

We need the cheapest conveyancing quote. Can you assist?

A.

Numerous property lawyers purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, but extra costs are frequently hidden in the terms. Costs found in the solicitor's terms ought to be clearly defined.

Q.

Which actual search enquiries should a St Austell property solicitor apply for when instructed on a St Austell property?

A.

The standard legal procedure will be to obtain Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environment Search, Tin Mining Search and China Search and perhaps special local St Austell searches for instance Cheshire Brine Search.

Q.

We plan to buy a chapel in the parish of St Mellion. Will a chancel search be required?

A.

Your St Austell conveyancing solicitor might recommend that a chancel search is ordered, regardless of the parish where the property being bought is found. In older areas of St Austell, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on new owners of a property where church councils may have not done so in the past, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

In what ways does the St Austell solicitor report back on the potential risk of floods in the St Austell area for a Fifties maisonette we are purchasing?

A.

An experienced property conveyancing solicitor conducts official environmental searches that incorporate St Austell flood risk area information.

Q.

Would you address taking action to bypass paying for SDLT?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is generally due for home purchases sold for over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty mitigation scheme must be treated with caution by purchasers in St Austell. These schemes are expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed imposing penalties and investigating all your tax matters. There have been a range of official schemes, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers, and your solicitor will advise if these may apply.

Q.

Should the St Austell property's form for fixtures and fittings list things like external light fixtures?

A.

In the main, fixtures are 'fixed' to walls and other surfaces and fixtures are free-standing. To avoid misunderstandings, a fixtures and fittings form should be agreed and will save considerable frustration later.

Q.

Is an environmental search a disbursement or fee?

A.

Each fee and disbursement ought to be clearly identified on a quote for your conveyancing, with any possible extra costs clearly listed. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, meaning the conveyancing solicitor passes on the charge at cost.

Q.

Will my property solicitor in St Austell conduct personal or official searches on my home purchase?

A.

The property solicitor will make a recommendation regarding the most appropriate route, depending on issues like local authority turnaround times. If personal searches are used the conveyancing solicitor might look for a search agent wit local experience like Lox Property Research, PO Box 272, St Austell, Cornwall, PL25 9EX Tel: 01726 65614.
