Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing quote in Wallingford?

A.

Both high-street and online law firms advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges are frequently hidden in the terms. Extra costs needs to be fair. The quote should, in addition, define any disbursements.

Q.

In about five weeks we are intending to move out of our semi detached house in Wallingford into our new home in Thame at what point to book a removals firm?

A.

We will recommend that home sellers put off organising removals until exchange of contracts has occurred as the firm moving date wont have been accepted by both parties. Local firms include Man & A Van, 243 High St, Wallingford, OX10 0BW Call: 07873 365409 or Reading Furniture Movers, St. Johns Rd, Wallingford, OX10 9AL Telephone: 0118 958 8789.

Q.

How is Wallingford contaminated land checked?

A.

Land could be contaminated by a range of naturally-occurring factors, and an environmental search should reveal whether a specific property is affected by contaminants like air pollution. Goulds Grove, Ewelme, OX10 6PJ is one such potential cause of local contamination.

Q.

How many weeks should the legal work to purchase residential property take, on average? The house being transacted is also in the area.

A.

Generally speaking, the number of weeks taken to transact a home will vary. This is based on potentially many issues which may affect the property, such as whether a mortgage lender requires particular searches. With Homeward Legal, your move is undertaken as quickly as possible.

Q.

What will the council tax cost on a investment Band H maisonette in Wallingford?

A.

The homes band should in most cases be reported within the conveyancing report on title, and by the local council

The latest tax charges for properties in Wallingford are tabled online at the South Oxfordshire council site. As of 13 August 2012 rates are:

  • Band A - £1,005.00
  • Band B - £1,172.00
  • Band C - £1,340.00
  • Band D - £1,507.00
  • Band E - £1,842.00
  • Band F - £2,177.00
  • Band G - £2,512.00
  • Band H - £3,015.00

Q.

Will we need a home buyers survey?

A.

It is recommended that most purchasers arrange a home surveyor when you intend to buy in Wallingford. A wide range of problems can negatively affect a property, which include insect infestation and ground movement.

Q.

How soon should I instruct a conveyancer in Wallingford?

A.

The short answer is, the faster you instruct the better, as there are a number of tasks that can be performed very early in the process. Instructing your solicitor sooner can reduce the likelihood of the sale or purchase aborting.

Q.

Do fixtures and fittings include things like cupboards?

A.

There is not a legal definition of fixtures and fittings, which can result in conflict once the new owner takes possession. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.
