Q.

Do I need to make use of a lawyer put forward by our estate agent in Tywyn?

A.

Your agent will be able to influence a law firm they refer a large volume of work to, and can therefore exert pressure on a solicitor to wrap up the process as soon as possible. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, some

agents may 'recommend' the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

Are the many areas of conservation in Syston likely to affect us?

A.

With nine thousand areas of conservation throughout the country, the neighbourhoods located near Syston include several areas of 'special architectural and historic interest' defined as protected. Living in a conservation area can mean more aesthetically pleasant surroundings, but the restrictions adds to upkeep costs. A conveyancing solicitor will discuss what specific restrictions are in place.

Q.

I am purchasing a property in the parish of Nailstone. Is a chancel search appropriate?

A.

Your solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. Chancel repair may be apportioned on the current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

Should we get a building surveyor to check for issues affecting this house purchase?

A.

It is strongly suggested that home buyers in Syston book a house survey if buying in Syston. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of problems that affect a property, which include settlement. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

What actions can I take to avoid paying for SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty reduction scheme is not recommended. These schemes are costly and unreliable.

What individual conveyancing searches will the Syston property lawyer do when buying a Syston building?

A.

The routine procedure will be to obtain Local Authority (council), Drainage and Water Search, Environmental and Gypsum Mining Search and, depending on certain criteria, area-specific searches for instance Flood Risk search.
