Plymouth City Airport is 5 miles from Yelverton. and Yelverton's nearest train station is Bere Alston.

Tavistock hospital is relatively close to Yelverton.

Q.

How do we find the best rates for conveyancing in Yelverton for a 723k property?

A.

Both high-street and online law firms promote supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Additional fees found in the terms should be fair and reasonable. A quote for conveyancing in Yelverton should also state any disbursements.The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

What can we do to avoid paying for SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty reduction must be treated with caution, as such schemes are expensive and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself.

Q.

Do you need to get searches for chancel liability? We are purchasing a flat conversion in Yelverton.

A.

The outcome of a landmark case 10 years ago confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including county histories. Churches in this area where a chancel search may be necessary include St Mary and St Paul's.

Q.

What can a Yelverton conveyancing lawyer do if the home we are intending to buy is inside a registered conservation area and has unauthorised windows added?

A.

West Devon council enquiries carried out by a property lawyer as part of the conveyancing will verify if the property is within a designated conservation area proof of permission for alterations will be asked for.

Q.

Will my Yelverton conveyancer inform me about the amount to be paid of council tax on a Band B property prior to completing on the purchase?

A.

Your conveyancer will consult with the West Devon local authority to enquire about the appropriate council tax charges which will be added to the conveyancer's title report.

The latest tax rates for properties in Yelverton are tabled on the West Devon council site. At the time of writing, 28 November 2012, band rates are:

  • Band A - £1,067.00
  • Band B - £1,245.00
  • Band C - £1,423.00
  • Band D - £1,601.00
  • Band E - £1,957.00
  • Band F - £2,313.00
  • Band G - £2,669.00
  • Band H - £3,202.00

Q.

Could the charges for our conveyancing incorporate any additional costs?

A.

It is unfortunate that sellers must read the terms of their conveyancing quote careful to identify any hidden fees. Homeward Legal's solicitors do not charge any hidden extra charges. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, meaning that your final bill could be much higher.

Q.

What type of searches in connection with the risk of local flooding around Devon will my conveyancing solicitor in Yelverton be able to conduct on a Victorian property we intend to purchase?

A.

An experienced conveyancing solicitor makes an application for formal environmental searches that incorporate Yelverton area flood risk information. Additionally the Yelverton conveyancing solicitor could possibly propose a more detailed (e.g. Homcheck) specialist local Yelverton area flood search.

Q.

Which of the Yelverton lender panels are your solicitors members of?

A.

Of lenders with branches in Yelverton, Homeward Legal work with many. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Dartmoor Financial, 9 Fern Ter, Princetown, Yelverton, PL20 6RS.
