Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? We need to find discount conveyancing in Tedburn St Mary.

A.

Various conveyancers offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional costs can inflate your solicitor's invoice. Your conveyancing quote should also state costs to be paid to third parties, including search providers, (disbursments).Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Are any conservation areas in Tedburn St Mary likely to affect us?

A.

These areas preserve streets and neighbourhoods of architectural merit. Your conveyancing lawyer will provide more details, in regard to relevant conservation area restrictions in Tedburn St Mary.

Q.

Does my solicitor in Tedburn St Mary tell me about the cost of council tax for a Band E maisonette before exchange of contracts?

A.

The property solicitor will approach the Teignbridge local council to discover the currently applicable council tax rates, which will then be included in the report on title. The latest tax charges for properties in Tedburn St Mary are listed online at the Teignbridge council site. At the time of writing on 28 February 2013 the different rates are:

  • Band B - £1,203.00
  • Band C - £1,375.00
  • Band D - £1,547.00
  • Band E - £1,891.00
  • Band F - £2,235.00
  • Band G - £2,579.00
  • Band H - £3,094.00

Q.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like bathroom suites?

A.

Commonly, fixtures are fixed elements, such as fixed towel rail to the property and fixtures are free-standing. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction, and this makes a fixtures and fittings form so necessary.

Q.

Is contaminated land in Tedburn St Mary a problem for most properties?

A.

Q.

Are Homeward Legal experienced enough to move quickly on property auction conveyancing in Tedburn St Mary?

A.

We put together legal documentation for vendors and do frequently handle the legal work for buyers at auction. It is sensible buyers at auction to formally instruct their conveyancing company as ahead of time as possible to give enough time for a full report of the auction legal pack before the date of the auction.

Post auction, your lawyer will need to be fully prepared to complete the purchase legal work in less than the usual 28 days as conventionally required by the auction conditions.

Q.

If we are purchasing a Tedburn St Mary home on the same street as a church furlong, is it necessary that we get a chancel search?

A.

Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Tedburn St Mary property likely to be affected. A chancel search checks that such a liability exists. A conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise further. Church of England properties in the area where a chancel search may be necessary include St Mary.
