How do I find a cheap solicitor in Axminster for purchasing a new build home?


Various conveyancers offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However extra charges may be added into small print. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. A quote should state the disbursements to be paid. Any extra costs should be fair. They be applicable if your lawyer is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


Is a building survey necessary when buying residential property?


It is suggested that home buyers arrange a property surveyor to carry out a survey. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of problems that can affect a property, such as flat roof leaks and rotten roof timbers. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.


When I am purchasing in Axminster, do I need to get a search for chancel liability?


Chancel repair liability can require some residential property owners to contribute towards the cost of upkeep of churches. As a result of the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Axminster Church of England properties which may give rise to chancel liability include Holy Cross and St Mary.

What are 'fixtures and fittings'?


Purchasers are frequently confused by the lack of detail regarding fixtures and fittings. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.


We are buying a 1930s property in a designated conservation areas, how do I uncover more information in regards to the state of repair?


Following a campaign, English Heritage have created records of the state of repair of conservation areas. Local Axminster conservation areas are specified by the local West Dorset planning authority, who preside over everything from building materials to rundown streets.


What does the Axminster conveyancing lawyer do when the flat we are planning to buy is in a local authority conservation area and has unsuitable removal of chimney stacks installed?


Your instructed property lawyer will verify whether the property is within a conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have requisite permissions. If no necessary permissions be produced, your solicitor will give you professional advice on the options which can include purchasing an indemnity insurance policy or requesting retrospective consent from West Dorset planning authority.
