Q.

How do we get a discount conveyancing quote in The Meadows?

A.

Various property lawyers advertise cheap conveyancing, but extra costs are often hiding in small print which sellers and buyers may have not read carefully Additional charges included in terms of engagement should be clearly defined. They only be applied if the solicitor must complete work beyond standard conveyancing on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

How do you calculate stamp duty rates and what should we budget for a £1074000 home?

A.

The Stamp Duty that is payable will depend on several factors, primarily the property's purchase price. It is £53700 on a £1074000 property (information correct March 2013).

Q.

How can I find out if the conservation area we are buying in is neglected?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, have conducted a survey and created details about the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas along with the vulnerability to a decline in standards. Conservation areas in The Meadows are set up by the local authority (Richmondshire) who are responsible for the state of the area including things like excessive road signs, the colours of paint used and property boundaries.

Q.

Will my conveyancing charges take into account any additional costs?

A.

Homeward Legal will never charge any hidden extra charges. Be aware that some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, which they will not be bound to.

Q.

I am buying property, do we need 'conveyancing searches'?

A.

Conveyancing searches are a commonly-used set of enquiries raised by your conveyancing solicitor. Searches deal with the legal condition of the property's title.

Q.

Property environmental searches are conveyancing protocol but when one considers recent flooding e g the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands are they sufficient to ascertain enough about the evolving local The Meadows flood risk?

A.

Your The Meadows solicitor will also get thorough conveyancing and environmental searches if the initial searches flag up a significant risk The Meadows flood risk area

You can get in touch with a local resident to get further peace of mind.

Q.

Do you suggest making the effort to defer paying stamp duty to HM Revenue?

A.

Stamp duty is usually payable for houses valued at over £125,000. Stamp duty mitigation is not advised when buying in The Meadows. Such schemes are highly expensive and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself.

Q.

The Meadows conveyancing solicitors conduct formal conveyancing searches if instructed to act for a buyer, but which specific searches?

A.

If you are applying for a mortgage the building society of bank mandates these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental, and perhaps unique particular e.g. a Index Map Search.
