Q.

How do we find a cheap solicitor in Worksop to buy a property?

A.

Several firms advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees will be included in small print. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Will the report on the property's title compiled by the Worksop property solicitor advise us on the amount of council tax on a Band B maisonette prior to exchange of contracts?

A.

A conveyancer will consult with the governing council to enquire about the up to date council tax rates, which will then be included in the title report. The latest tax charges for properties in Worksop are tabled on the Bassetlaw local authority site. On 13 November 2012 the different rates are:

  • Band A - £1,070.00
  • Band B - £1,248.00
  • Band C - £1,427.00
  • Band D - £1,605.00
  • Band E - £1,962.00
  • Band F - £2,318.00
  • Band G - £2,675.00
  • Band H - £3,210.00

Q.

Which particular searches does a Worksop lawyer conduct when buying a Worksop property?

A.

The conventional legal protocol will be to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search, Environmental and Gypsum Mining and occasionally less common searches, which might include Official Search of whole with priority.

Q.

We are buying a £307000 residence in Worksop. How is stamp duty worked out?

A.

The Stamp Duty owed will depend on the house or flat's value. Stamp duty will be £9210 on a £307000 Worksop home (accurate March 2013).

Q.

We have had a conveyancing quote from you. Might there be any hidden costs?

A.

No. Homeward Legal's solicitors will not charge any extra, hidden costs for conveyancing in Worksop. A Homeward Legal quote is an honest and accurate fee.

Q.

We are buying on a recently-developed brownfield land. Is the soil likely to remain contaminated?

A.

Worksop's local area has a history of contamination from agriculture or industry, like much of the UK. Data on many contaminants, such as water contaminants such as solvents and herbicides, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

In a few months we are hoping to be moving out of our terraced home just outside Worksop into a bigger property in West Bridgford what is the optimum stage to book a removals firm?

A.

Homeward Legal will advise that home vendors delay organising removals until exchange of contracts as beforehand a definitive home moving date wont have been firmed up. For a local Nottinghamshire firm DBE Removals, 142 Anston Av, Worksop, S81 7JG on 01909 484375 or Jays Removals & Storage, 39 Sunnyside, Worksop, S81 7LN Phone: 01909 501800.

Q.

When do you need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Worksop?

A.

Whether you are buying or selling in Worksop, instructing as early as possible is better, as there are several tasks that can be performed straight away. Early instruction of a firm for a purchase can mean that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process.
