Q.

How do I get the best rates for conveyancing for a £319,000 property?

A.

Various solicitors purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra charges will be included in small print which unwary buyers fail to check. The disbursements to be paid ought to be defined on a Trafford conveyancing quote. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

Which actual searches should a Trafford conveyancing solicitor apply for when carrying out the conveyancing for a Trafford house?

A.

Standard procedure is to get Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal), Environmental and Coal Mining (Con29M) as well as any area-specific searches, which may include a Land Charges Search (K15).

Q.

Co-operative Bank is going to be our mortgage lender, what will we need to check?

A.

Some lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, which may result in increased legal costs for purchasers. We will act for many lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay the lender's costs.

Q.

How many weeks does conveyancing need, in your opinion? I need a fast service.

A.

On average, the time needed to buy or sell a house will vary, affected by several issues which may affect the property, for example, whether either party has a mortgage. With our property specialists, every purchase receives communicative and proactive service, resulting in the fastest possible outcome.

Q.

How do we determine SDLT, and how much will it be on a £597000 property?

A.

The Stamp Duty owed will depend on the valuation. Stamp duty will be £23880 on a £597000 house or flat (information correct 01/01/2013).

Q.

Which body is under obligation for logging the condition of repair of Trafford and Trafford conservation areas?

A.

Conservation areas in Trafford are specified by Salford who police conservation area concerns from including things like poorly maintained public spaces, loft extensions and what can be developed. Following a campaign, English Heritage now maintain a list of the condition of conservation areas as well as the risk of deterioration.

Q.

I am interested in purchasing a property in Trafford. Can we find out whether the property is in a conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas categorise regions designated as being of historical merit. Urmston Barton-upon-Irwell, Altrincham Ashley Heath and Altrincham Bowdon are among the conservation areas in Trafford. A lawyer will discuss what specific restrictions are in place for affected areas in Trafford.

Q.

The vendor has unfortunately added ugly roof aerials to the flat which I think might possibly exclude Altrincham Ashley Heath conservation area criteria.

A.

Local authority searches carried out by your Trafford property lawyer in the process of the conveyancing should find out if the property is within a conservation area and any evidence of Coal Authority consent for alterations will be asked for.
