Q.

I need to find a firm that offers cheap conveyancing. because we are on a limited budget.

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional costs will be included in the terms. Any extra charges ought to be clearly defined and only be applied if your conveyancer must complete additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements to be paid ought to be listed on a Walton on the Naze conveyancing quote. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

What will a Walton on the Naze property solicitor recommend if the flat we hope to invest in is inside a Tendring council conservation area which has conspicuous artificial stone cladding fitted?

A.

Tendring planning authority search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) carried out by a property lawyer as part of the conveyancing will find out if the property is inside a conservation area and evidence of consent for alterations will be asked for. In the event that no local authority consents be supplied the solicitor will advise you of the best alternative which can include purchasing an indemnity policy or requesting retrospective permission from the planning authority.

Q.

Will your Walton on the Naze conveyancer get any searches on the Essex Fifties terraced house I am intending to buy?

The normal procedure is to obtain Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environment Search and perhaps less common searches e.g. a Official Search of Whole or Part without Priority (OS3).

Q.

Should I get a chancel search if you are buying in Walton on the Naze?

A.

Property owners neighbouring church property in the locality must subsidise repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Walton on the Naze properties is likely to exist. Your solicitor can provide more details. Church of England properties in this area include All Saints' and Walton-le-Soken St George-at-the-Naze.

Q.

We are purchasing a barn conversion in South Ockenden. Is a chancel search compulsory?

A.

Whether you are buying a property in Walton on the Naze or elsewhere in the county, the property lawyer may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. Although some Parochial Church Councils have decided to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, there is no guarantee that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will continue to be free from liability. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

Which environmental factors can affect land in Walton on the Naze. Will they be thoroughly investigated?

A.

Land in Walton on the Naze would be contaminated by several human activities. Contaminants including existing and proposed overhead electricity cables should be reported on during conveyancing searches.

Q.

What does charges for searches total?

A.

With Homeward Legal's conveyancing service, Walton on the Naze clients are charged no more than £249 for a standard search bundle.

Q.

How do you calculate stamp duty tax and what should we budget for a £1115000 residence?

A.

Stamp Duty in Walton on the Naze depends on the value of the property. Stamp duty will be £55750 on a £1115000 residential property.*
