I need to find a cheap Burford solicitor to sell a residence. What do we need to consider?


Many property lawyers promote so-called cheap conveyancing. Often additional fees are often hiding in the small print. A conveyancing quote should list any disbursements.


Are you geared up for 28 day completions on residential property auction conveyancing in Burford?


Our team prepare legal packs for vendors and regularly work for buyers at auction. It is prudent to select a solicitors practice as early as possible so there is time for a title report of the auction legal pack before the day of the auction.

Subsequently, following the auction your conveyancing lawyer will be ready for completing the conveyancing in the limited time frame as usually required by the auction conditions.


If I plan to buy in the parish of Rotherfield Greys, will it be necessary to get a chancel search?


Your conveyancing lawyer might recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the current owners of a building where church councils have previously chosen not to do so, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.


Which local authority is responsible for Burford?


Burford is located in West Oxfordshire Council, Elmfield, New Yatt Road, Witney, OX28 1PB Tel: 01993 861420


Where can I go about check if the Burford conservation area is not being properly maintained?


Following a campaign, English Heritage administer records of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas. Conservation areas in Burford are nominated by the local West Oxfordshire planning authority, who preside over the state of the area including things like street clutter, removal of front gardens for parking and what can be developed.


My agent has named a law firm that they have used before. Do I need to instruct this firm?


The Brigg agent can influence a conveyancing solicitor they refer many clients to, and can therefore exert pressure on a solicitor to wrap up the process as soon as possible. These referrals must be carefully considered, as an agent may choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.


My mortgage lender will be Northern Rock, is there anything I need to consider?


House buyers need to be aware that some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', which may result in greater legal costs for purchasers. We, though, will act for the majority of UK mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.


How do I stop getting gazumped?


The custom of choosing to reject a previously accepted offer on a purchase when a better offer is made by a second buyer is called gazumping. There is almost always a chance of gazumping. Instructing your solicitor as soon as you can should help to mitigate this risk.
