Q.

We need an affordable Stowmarket conveyancing estimate. What should we check?

A.

Confusion over this issue catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many law firms advertise so-called cheap conveyancing. Often extra fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. This small print is often not read by buyers and sellers in a hurry. Any disbursements to be paid must also be stated on the quote Any extra fees found in the small print should be fair and come into force only if the solicitor must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

If I am purchasing on the same street as priory grounds in Stowmarket, will we need to get a search for chancel liability?

A.

The Law Lords decision in a landmark case 10 years ago reaffirmed that 'lay impropriators' of property must contribute towards the cost of church repairs. Parochial Church Councils in Stowmarket must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. Stowmarket ecclesiastical properties where chancel liability may apply include St Peter & St Mary.

Q.

Is rubidium contamination regularly identified in Stowmarket soil?

A.

With the history of industry in parts of Stowmarket, soil contamination is unavoidable. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including chlorine and groundwater contaminants like bleach.

Q.

Are there companies who remediate contaminated topsoil in Stowmarket?

A.

A degree of remediation can often be possible, though expensive, local government is usually responsible. For further information, contact Terrain Aeration Services, 20 Millfields, Haughley, Stowmarket, IP14 3PU.

Q.

What can a Stowmarket conveyancing solicitor recommend if the building is in a conservation area in Mid Suffolk which has unsightly dormer windows added?

A.

Mid Suffolk council searches carried out by a solicitor during the legal process will check whether the property is in a conservation area and evidence of planning consent for additions to the property will be requested.

Q.

In about 6 weeks we are going to be finally moving from our terraced property on the outskirts of Stowmarket into our next flat in Saxmundham , what is the best point to select a removals firm?

A.

Most lawyers tend to suggest that house movers put off until formal exchange of contracts because a moving date will not have been confirmed.

Why not try Local Rentals, Charringtons Yard/Stowupland Street, Stowmarket, IP14 1EQ Telephone: 01449 770022 or Greens Removals Ltd, Tomo Ind Est/Creeting Rd, Stowmarket, IP14 5AY on 01284 703811.

Q.

Which lender panels in Stowmarket are you on?

A.

Lenders and mortgage specialists in Stowmarket include Alliance, 19 Trinity Walk, Stowupland, Stowmarket, IP14 4AS, and Stowmarket Mortgage Centre, 4 Bury St, Stowmarket, IP14 1HH.

Q.

Is there anything I can do to get out of paying out for stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty reduction scheme should not be considered. These schemes are often uneconomical and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later imposing penalties and investigating all your tax matters. There have been several government initiatives, however, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers.
