Q.

I am looking for a lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many solicitors claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges may be added into small print. This small print is often not read by buyers in a hurry. Additional costs ought to be fair and reasonable and be applicable if the lawyer must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

When in the process should I speak to a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

Whether you are buying or selling in St James, the earlier in the process you can instruct a firm, the better, as there are a number of tasks which may begin straight away. Some groups advocate postponing instruction until the offer is accepted, but you will then be at a serious disadvantage in the event of a contract race, or buyer eager to move quickly.

Q.

Should we be concerned about 'fixtures and fittings'?

A.

New owners in St James are frequently confused by the vagueness surrounding fixtures and fittings. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

Bookshops and the web have an abundance of helpful handbooks on the subject of doing your own legal work. Do I actually need to spend money on a solicitor in St James for my home move?

A.

Should you wish to try, you can practically complete the majority of the legal work without formally instructing a proficient conveyancing solicitor in St James. Essentially have a go conveyancers will not have acceptable cover which practicing solicitors firms are required to carry.

Q.

I am enquiring about the council tax rates on a residential semi-detached dwelling in St James, how much are they?

A.

Customarily a conveyancer's title report should cover the relevant Westminster council tax band.

Council tax charges for properties in St James are detailed at the Westminster local authority site. At the time of authoring (11 December 2012) rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £456.00
  • Band B - £533.00
  • Band C - £609.00
  • Band D - £685.00
  • Band E - £837.00
  • Band F - £989.00
  • Band G - £1,141.00
  • Band H - £1,369.00

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if we are intending to buy in the parish of Pimlico St Peter, near St James?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search. In St James's much older areas, chancel repair may be imposed on new owners of a home where church councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners.

Q.

Which local factors can contaminate land in St James. Will they be checked for thoroughly?

A.

Residential property in St James would be contaminated by a wide range of factors caused by man and by nature, and an environmental search will confirm if a property may be affected by local contaminants like pollution incidents or nearby waste management facilities.

Q.

What conservation areas are there in St James?

A.

Parts of St James considered be of historical merit, like model housing estates, may be designated as conservation areas. The solicitor handling your purchase should be able to advise further and discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.
