Q.

How do I find the best conveyancing rates for a 342,000 house?

A.

Many solicitors offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms. Any costs found in terms of engagement should be reasonable and clear. They only apply to matters if your conveyancer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Stilton?

A.

Stilton is located in Peterborough City Council, Town Hall, Bridge Street, Peterborough, PE1 1PJ, phone: 01733 747 474

Q.

Do we need searches for chancel liability? I am purchasing in Stilton.

A.

Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Stilton Church council. A chancel search addresses if such a liability exists. Stilton church properties where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Mary Magdalene.

Q.

Is a property survey advisable if we are purchasing a house or flat, regardless of its age?

Homeward Legal firmly recommend that Stilton buyers order a property survey when buying in Stilton. It is a fact that there are a range of defects that will impact a property, which include roof damage and cracks around door frames, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a Fifties terraced house in Stilton?

A.

Normally the conveyancer's title report will include the Peterborough council tax band. Council tax charges for Stilton are tabled online at the Peterborough council website. As at (25 November 2012) rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £913.00
  • Band B - £1,065.00
  • Band C - £1,217.00
  • Band D - £1,369.00
  • Band E - £1,673.00
  • Band F - £1,978.00
  • Band G - £2,282.00
  • Band H - £2,738.00

Q.

Can you recommend how we bypass paying for HMRC stamp duty?

A.

Homeward Legal firmly advise against any stamp duty mitigation, because these schemes are often uneconomical and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed .

Q.

What should we do regarding manganese (Mn) soil contamination in Stilton?

A.

There are legislative rules imposed to prevent future topsoil contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including water contaminants such as solvents.

Q.

What authority looks after for keeping order in the condition of repair of Stilton conservation areas?

A.

Local conservation areas are nominated by the local authority (Peterborough) who govern conservation area concerns from including things like neon signs, rear extensions and private spaces. Following a campaign, English Heritage maintain a detailed list on the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in England as well as the vulnerability to getting worse.
