Q.

How do we get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Many law firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement that homeowners often do not check. Your conveyancing quote should list costs to be paid to third parties, such as the local authority, (disbursements). Additional fees which are listed in terms and conditions needs to be reasonable and clear.

Q.

I have found a number of helpful documents about DIY conveyancing. Do we want to use a conveyancer in Thurmaston ?

A.

In theory, there is no reason why a home buyer shouldn't conduct legal process yourself.

The truth is however that a conveyancer juggles a large array of jobs including identifying and arranging appropriate indemnity or the Land Registry formalities which need training. AT any rate firms and their solicitors are legally obligated to have the applicable indemnity insurance to safeguard you from any professional errors.

Q.

How do we determine Stamp Duty Land Tax rates and what will it be on a £819000 residential property?

A.

Stamp Duty in Thurmaston will depend on the purchase price of the house. On a £819000 residential property, stamp duty will be £32760 (correct March 2013).

Q.

At what stage should a mover organise a removals firm?

A.

The ideal point is for home movers to delay a removal firm until such time as both sides have fixed the final home moving date which typically

occurs once final contracts are signed. Local firms include Waste Tranformer Ltd, 31 Ashtree Rd, Hamilton, Leicester, LE5 1TW on 0116 246 0246 or Mr Moovers, 5/Unit 1/1/Knights Close, Thurmaston, Leicester, LE4 8EW Phone: 0116 260 5621.

Q.

We are buying on a new development ex-industrial use land. Is the topsoil potentially contaminated by waste minerals like mercury (Hg)?

A.

There are comprehensive regulations to manage soil contamination. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Thurmaston, including local authorities.

Q.

Our local agent has named the solicitors firm. Is it risky to instruct this solicitor?

A.

Agent recommendations are a not uncommon route for buyers to find a solicitor, however, these referrals should be compared against alternatives, as some agents choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a Fifties terraced Band G home in Thurmaston?
