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.

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.

For fast conveyancing to buy a £258k property, what do we need to aim for?

A.

Firstly, fast conveyancing is key to instruct a experienced solicitor. Consider the following when selecting:

  • Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?
  • Do they use email?
  • How soon will they order searches?

Q.

Is beryllium soil contamination likely in Wallingford?

A.

Restrictions exist to curtail soil contamination, but some will remain in the environment for decades. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Wallingford, including local authorities.

Q.

I plan to buy a property in the parish of Stratton Audley. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

A solicitor could recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the residence being purchased is found. In Wallingford's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

How is SDLT calculated, and how much should it be on a £351000 property?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is based on the value of the property. Stamp duty will be £10530 on a £351000 property.

Q.

I have read about the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall in the future I am wondering whether environmental searches won't be detailed enough?

A.

A thorough Wallingford lawyer will carry out flood risk searches if the environmental searches spots a Wallingford flood risk.

You can speak to a neighbour for extra information.

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.
