Q.

How do I find a cheap solicitor to sell a residence?

A.

Many solicitors promote cheap conveyancing. Often additional costs may inflate your final bill. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to sell.

Q.

We plan to purchase a house in Newborough. Is a chancel search necessary?

A.

Whichever Uttoxeter parish you are purchasing in, a property lawyer may suggest a chancel search. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the owners of a home where church councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

I am purchasing a £258000, how is stamp duty rates calculated?

A.

The Stamp Duty you must pay will depend on several factors, including the value of the property, and whether it is in a 'disadvantaged area'. Stamp duty will be £7740 on a £258000 home.*

We are intending to buy a maisonette within a conservation area, how do I find information in relation to the state of upkeep?

Conservation areas in Uttoxeter are nominated by the local East Staffordshire planning authority, who police

conservation area concerns from the upkeep of public spaces to the prohibition of traffic signs. English Heritage, a government body, have created a list in relation to the state of conservation areas along with the exposure to deterioration.

Q.

Can you recommend how to bypass paying SDLT rates?

A.

Stamp duty scheme should not be considered, because these schemes are highly expensive and very risky.

Q.

We are buying on a recently-developed brownfield site. Could the top-soil be contaminated by industrial waste like lead (Pb)?

A.

Though the dangers are usually minor, if significant harm could be caused to people or protected species by the contamination, it is likely to be labelled contaminated land. Metal contamination of top-soil in Uttoxeter is more likely to occur near former industrial sites.

Q.

Is it necessary that I get a chancel search? I am buying in Uttoxeter.

A.

Property owners neighbouring an old church building are expected to fund repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. A chancel search is employed to check whether such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. Your conveyancing lawyer will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Uttoxeter church properties where chancel liability may apply include Heath Mission Church and St Mary the Virgin.
