Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

Various firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra charges are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. The quote should also clearly state any disbursements to be paid. Any additional fees found in the terms should be fair and clearly defined and be applied only where your solicitor must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Conveyancing solicitors in Victoria Dock get official searches if instructed by a property buyer, but which actual ones?

A.

If purchasing and getting a mortgage, your lender will expect the following for Victoria Dock: Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environment Search and perhaps area-specific searches for example Chancel Repair Liability Search.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Victoria Dock?

A.

Victoria Dock is located in South Oxfordshire District Council, Benson Lane, Crowmarsh Gifford, Wallingford, Oxon, OX10 8ED, phone: 01491 823 002

Q.

We are buying on a brownfield land. Is rubidium soil contamination likely?

A.

Soil contamination by industrial waste, including metals, will have occurred in parts of Victoria Dock. Other sources of contaminated land include water contaminants such as industrial chemicals.

Q.

The estate agent has referred a law firm. Do I need to instruct this solicitor?

A.

Agent referrals are a common practice way to find a solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, there is a risk that an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

We have found abundant very helpful publications giving details on doing your own legal work. Do I really need to spend money on a solicitor in Victoria Dock ?

A.

It is certainly possible to carry out the legal process yourself.

That said, a property lawyer carries out a large number of exercises e.g. chasing outstanding papers and checking the lease which are more safely handled with appropriate a qualified professional. In any event however, solicitors firms are obliged to possess the applicable professional indemnity insurance that protects you from any professional losses you encounter made by the lawyer.

Q.

How is stamp duty calculated and how much will it be on a £1064000 Victoria Dock property?

A.

The Stamp Duty which will be owed is dependent on a small number of factors, including the home's value. It will be £53200 on a £1064000 home.*

Q.

Why does Victoria Dock property legal work for a sale take months to complete?

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase a property can be exposed to significant delays for many reasons. The reasons may unhappily be out of your solicitor's control. We appreciate how difficult it can be to face these and do our best to minimise the impact of these delays whenever feasible. Reasons for delay can include slow solicitors acting for the other side.
