Q.

How do I find the cheapest Thames Ditton conveyancing quote?

A.

Many conveyancers offer cheap conveyancing. However extra fees may be added into the terms and conditions. Any charges should be fair and reasonable and be applied only where the solicitor is required to complete extra work , 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.

Handling the legal work without the support of a conveyancer in Thames Ditton is becoming possible when buying and selling a house , however would it actually be wise ?

A.

Theoretically speaking there are no arguments why a home mover should not undertake the bulk of the legal process unaided.

That said, a property solicitor in Thames Ditton handles a long list of actions e.g. chasing notices/share certificates and apportioning service charges which need a skilled professional.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Thames Ditton?

A.

Thames Ditton is located in Elmbridge Borough Council, Civic Centre, High Street, Esher, Surrey, KT10 9SD, phone: 01372 474 474

Q.

Is contaminated land in Thames Ditton a concern?

A wide range of contaminants may seriously affect Thames Ditton property, and an environmental search should reveal if a specific property can be impacted by local contaminants such as sand or gravel pits or shallow mining.

Q.

Property conveyancing searches may be standard procedure for home buyers but with recent weather changes such as the fact that last year was second wettest year since records began are they still appropriate to verify sufficient information about the Thames Ditton area flood risk?

A.

Conveyancing searches carried out by your lawyer in Thames Ditton will also include a far more informative Landmark flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are worried you might make enquiries with a local resident.

Q.

We are buying a unique investment property in the middle of a conservation area in Thames Ditton, where does one find information concerning the state of repair of the area?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, maintain a detailed list about the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in addition to the exposure to a worsening of the condition of the area. Local Thames Ditton conservation areas are created by the local Elmbridge planning authority, who regulate everything from paths to the policing of ugly parking meters.

Q.

We plan to buy a rectory in the parish of Tandridge. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

A solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered. Through some parish councils have determined to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not be so in future. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Can you advise how I circumvent paying SDLT?

A.

SDLT usually must be paid on property valued at over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty reduction scheme is not recommended for purchases in Thames Ditton. These schemes are costly and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself. There have been a small number of legal initiatives, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas', and your solicitor will advise if these may apply.
