Q.

Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £173,000 house? I am trying to find fixed rate conveyancing.

A.

Many firms offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms.

Q.

Does my Thornton Cleveleys conveyancer conduct any property conveyancing searches on the Lancashire period detached property I am intending to buy?

A.

If taking out a mortgage the lender will expect a solicitor to get at least these searches - Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environment Search and perhaps specific local searches such as HS32.

Q.

How do I avoid paying SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty must be paid for home purchases valued at over £125,000. Stamp duty mitigation should be treated with extreme caution in Thornton Cleveleys, as such schemes are expensive and unreliable.

Q.

What are fixtures and fittings?

A.

Usually, there is no clear definition of fixtures and fittings. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This makes the completion of a fixtures and fittings form essential.

Q.

What should we do regarding barium soil contamination in Thornton Cleveleys?

A.

Some metal contamination may have occurred throughout Thornton Cleveleys, but where substances causing significant pollution of surface waters or groundwater are found the land will be defined as 'contaminated'. Metal contamination of soil in Thornton Cleveleys is more likely to occur near landfill sites. Data on other contaminants, like groundwater contaminants like phenols and disinfection by-products, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

What does searches cost?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches greatly varies, and will be dependent on your lender's requirements. Searches are disbursements, and will be charged at cost.

Q.

Which environmental factors can contaminate land in Thornton Cleveleys?

A.

Many of contaminants may reduce the value of Thornton Cleveleys property, and an environmental search will confirm that a home is impacted by local contaminants such as shallow mining.

Q.

Would acquiring a home buyers survey be necessary when buying any property?

A.

We suggest that all buyers book a RICS surveyor to undertake a survey. There can be a range of problems that can affect a property. These include cavity wall tie failure or ground movement.
