Q.

How do I get the cheapest Tintern conveyancing quote?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this point catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra fees will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any additional charges should be fair. A quote should also state applicable disbursements.

Q.

How can we calculate stamp duty and what will we need to pay on a £296000 property?

These restrictions may impose liability on a buyer for unauthorised alterations made by previous owners, but the benefits will include more aesthetically pleasant surroundings. Your lawyer will advise further.

We are buying on a new development brownfield land. What should we do regarding nickel topsoil contamination?
