What are the best rates for conveyancing for a 124,000 home?


Many online and high street firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. These terms are often ignored by excited homeowners, eager to get underway. Any charges which are listed in your solicitor's terms should be fair and clearly defined. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


For fast conveyancing on the purchase of a £712,000 home, what do we need to do?


As is widely reported, instructing a experienced property lawyer is essential to a fast conveyancing transaction. There are numerous things you, as the buyer, could do to speed up the process. These include:

  • calling or emailing your property lawyer, and chase them if you suspect any delays
  • responding to your property lawyer by phone, fax or email wherever possible
  • arranging your mortgage offer


Can Cambridgeshire ex-industrial use land top-soil still be contaminated?


Measures are taken throughout the local area to rectify soil contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs), will be included in an environmental search.


When in the process is it appropriate to instruct a conveyancer?


In the majority of situations, as soon as possible, as the legal work can begin straight away. Instructing your solicitor sooner can reduce the likelihood of your purchase or sale stalling.


My husband and I are interested in purchasing a building in Cambridgeshire. Are there many areas of conservation?


Areas considered to be of 'special architectural and historic interest', like stretches of canals, may be recognised as conservation areas. Bassingbourn Caldecote, Duxford Airfield Duxford / Whittlesford and Longstanton are among the conservation areas in Cambridgeshire. The local authority will be able to provide more details about local conservation areas, and the conveyancing solicitor handling your purchase should discuss what specific restrictions are in place.


Our mortgage lender is Northern Rock, is there anything I need to be aware of?


Some lenders have limited the firms who can act for them. For buyers, this can result in significantly higher conveyancing costs. We can act for many lenders.


Can you confirm which Cambridgeshire lenders you can work with. Whose panels are your solicitors members of?


We have solicitors with experience working beside many lenders who are Council of Mortgage Lenders-approved. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Cambridgeshire, like Mortgage Force, 2 Beaumont Way, Hampton Hargate, Peterborough, PE7 8DN, Another Mortgage Co Ltd, 92 Melbourn Rd, Royston, SG8 7DG, and Bright Mortgage Advice, Howard House/Church St, St. Neots, PE19 2BU.
