How do we get the best rates for conveyancing in Chard for a 329k home?


Various conveyancers purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, but additional costs may inflate the solicitor's invoice. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


What searches should a Chard lawyer carry out when acting on a Chard building?


The standard conveyancing procedure is to obtain Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environment Search and Tin Search and perhaps unique particular for example Chancel.


Which local authority is responsible for Chard?


Chard is located in South Somerset District Council, Council Offices, Brympton Way, Yeovil, Somerset, BA20 2HT, contact: 01935 462 462


Which lenders in Chard do you work with?

Lenders and mortgage specialists in Chard include Woodward Insurance, 141-143 High St, Street, BA16 0EX, Bella Mortgages, 5 Blenheim Rd, Street, BA16 0QD, and Mortgage Select, Cook Way/Bindon Rd, Taunton, TA2 6BJ. The solicitor managing the legal work for your move can provide more information.


We are buying on a Chard brownfield land. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste?


Restrictions exist to prevent future topsoil contamination, but some will remain in the environment for decades. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Chard, including local authorities.


If we plan to purchase in the parish of Shillingford St George, should we get a chancel search?


Whichever Chard parish you are purchasing in, a conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search. In Chard's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on owners of a building where church councils may have not done so in the past, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.


What sort of local searches into the uncertain risk of possible flooding around Somerset will the Chard property lawyer be able to do on a Fifties property I am hoping to buy?


Your property solicitor conducts standard protocol conveyancing searches that incorporate Chard flood risk area data information.


What will the council tax cost for a period Band A maisonette in Chard?
