Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing quote in Thornton?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing, but additional charges are often hiding in the small print. The disbursements to be paid should also be included on the conveyancing quote. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Will a title report compiled by the Thornton property solicitor advise me on the amount of the council tax for a property prior to exchange?

A.

A lawyer will liaise with the local council to ascertain the currently applicable council tax charges which will be set out in the conveyancer's title report. Correct rates for residents of Thornton are detailed on the council website.

Q.

Could Thornton soil be contaminated by zinc?

A.

Policies and legislation are in place to control pollution, waste, water and chemical contamination. Other sources of contaminated land include asbestos and groundwater contamination.

Q.

Flood risk searches are computed from past data but when one considers recent flooding such as the serious flooding in York are they the ideal way to ascertain enough about the evolving Thornton future flood risk?

A.

A thorough conveyancing solicitor in Thornton should get additional conveyancing and environmental searches from Landmark if the initial searches spots a any kind of Thornton flood risk.

Sometimes buyers get in touch with a neighbour of the property to get added local information.

Q.

Which particular searches does a lawyer in Thornton conduct when buying a Thornton flat?

A.

The conventional legal protocol is to get Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal), Environment Search and Gypsum Mining Search and occasionally specific local searches e.g. a Index Map Search (SIM).

Q.

What are conveyancing searches?

A.

Searches are a commonly-used set of queries carried out on behalf of the party intending to buy the property, and only relate to issues and defects relating to the property's legal title.

Q.

Is a Local Authority search a fee or a disbursement?

A.

Unscrupulous firms attempt to pass off fees which should be included as disbursements. It is not always obvious if a cost is a disbursement or not, and if it ought to be included. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, meaning the conveyancing solicitor passes on the charge at cost.
