Q.

Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a 751,000 property? I am looking for a fixed rate conveyancing estimate in West Bridgford.

A.

Many firms offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. Busy, stressed property buyers and sellers ignore these terms at their peril. Extra costs listed in the solicitor's terms should be reasonable and clear. They only come into force where your conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Could cadmium contaminate land in West Bridgford?

A.

Given the region's industrial and agricultural history in parts of West Bridgford, topsoil contamination is unavoidable. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including organohalides.

Q.

Does West Bridgford include many conservation areas?

A.

Areas deemed to be of architectural merit, such as mining villages, will be defined as areas of conservation. These restrictions may impose liability on a buyer for unauthorised alterations made by previous owners, but the benefits include a more attractive neighbourhood.

Q.

I have taken out a quote from you. Might I need to pay any hidden fees?

A.

No. We will not charge any hidden costs. Be aware that some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs. You may face a much greater total fee when you have completed.

Q.

Will the title report prepared by the West Bridgford solicitor advise us on the relevant rates of council tax for a Band F maisonette before exchange?

A.

A lawyer will approach the council to enquire about the latest council tax rates, which will then be added to the conveyancing report on title. The latest council tax charges for homes in West Bridgford are published on the Nottingham council site. On 02 August 2012 the rates are:

  • Band A - £1,076.00
  • Band B - £1,255.00
  • Band C - £1,434.00
  • Band D - £1,614.00
  • Band E - £1,972.00
  • Band F - £2,331.00
  • Band G - £2,689.00
  • Band H - £3,227.00

Q.

Should I make use of the firm of solicitors suggested by our local agent?

A.

Many agents in Hucknall will have a referral arrangement with solicitors where they refer clients to them. These referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as an agent may choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like kitchen units?

A.

Mainly, fixtures are permanently fixed to walls, floors or ceilings securely and fixtures can be more easily removed. This may not considered until it is too late, which makes a fixtures and fittings form so useful.

Q.

Food risk searches may be fine but when one considers recent events e g the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands are they comfort enough to determine enough about the changing West Bridgford area flood risk?

A.

Flood searches carried out by a conveyancing solicitor in West Bridgford should include the more informative search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.

If you are still nervous you can get in touch with a neighbour.
