How do we get low cost conveyancing in Chesham?


Many property buyers and sellers seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates. Many solicitors promote 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional charges are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement, left unread by preoccupied property buyers and sellers Any extra charges which are listed in your solicitor's terms should be clearly defined. A conveyancing quote should, in addition, define costs to be paid to third parties, such as the Land Registry, (disbursments).Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


The Chesham house being bought is on a ex-industrial use land. Could the top-soil be contaminated by industrial waste?


Though the dangers are usually minor, if significant harm could be caused to people or protected species by the contamination, it is likely to be labelled contaminated land. Metal contamination of soil in Chesham is more likely to occur near former industrial sites. Data on other contaminants, like groundwater contamination and perchlorate, will also be included in an environmental search.


What does the cost of my conveyancing searches in Chesham be?


The cost of conveyancing searches varies appreciably, subject to the searches your lender requires.


Environmental searches may be fine but with recent events such as the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since on record are they still appropriate to ascertain sufficient information about the Chesham flood risk?


Flood risk searches conducted by the Chesham conveyancing solicitor will include a far more informative search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are still nervous you could try to contact a local resident or regional Buckinghamshire flood damage builder - e.g. Project Painting Decorating, 68 Cresswell Rd, Chesham, HP5 1TA Tel: 07548 486953.


Our agent has suggested a conveyancing solicitor whom they usually use. Will it be faster to instruct this firm?


The agent may suggest a law firm. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, some agents may 'recommend' the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.


Should we get a chancel search if I am buying in the parish of Foscott, near Chesham?


Your conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search. In older areas of Chesham, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have spared previous owners or tenants. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.


What length of time will it take my assigned property lawyer to handle all of the legal work on the top floor of Victorian property we hope to buy?


The process can take anywhere between 1 month and 3 months, which can be affected by a number of issues e.g. the speed of the vendor's property solicitor, or whether additional searches are required.

Homeward Legal's property solicitors in Chesham are exceptionally proactive completing the process as soon as possible.


Which environmental factors can contaminate land in Chesham, and should they be an issue?


Residential property in Chesham could be contaminated by a wide range of environmental concerns. Issues such as military land will be detailed in an appropriate search. Contamination in Chesham can be caused by local waste sites, such as Meadhams Farm, Blackwell Hall Lane, Buckinghamshire, HP5 1TN.
