How do we get low cost conveyancing in Godmanchester?


This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional fees can pad the final bill. The conveyancing quote should also clearly state any disbursements. Extra fees should be fair. They only be applied if your solicitor must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

We are buying on a recently-developed ex-industrial site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste?


There are laws imposed in order to manage soil contamination. The local authority for Godmanchester will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.


As a consequence of the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since on record we are wondering if flood searches aren't thorough enough?


A good Godmanchester conveyancer will advise you to get additional in depth environmental searches if the first search determines a risk of flooding in Godmanchester.

You may be able to also contact a local resident for that further insight if still concerned.


If I am intending to purchase near Godmanchester, in the parish of Tydd St Giles, do we need a chancel search?


A Godmanchester conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. Chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the current owners of a property where parish councils may have spared

previous owners or tenants, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.


There are a lot of books about DIY conveyancing when selling a maisonette - Would it be foolish to do the legal work without any help?


Theoretically speaking there is absolutely no argument at all why a seller shouldn't take care of he conveyancing without assistance. The truth is however that a conveyancer is familiar with a huge array of assignments including chasing missing documents or apportioning ground rents which need training. In any event however, solicitors practices must pay for relevant cover to insulate you from any professional negligence.


What can a Godmanchester property lawyer advise if the building I want to buy is in a Huntingdonshire council conservation area that has inappropriate roof antenna installed?


Local authority enquiries carried out by your solicitor in the process of the conveyancing should verify whether the property is in a conservation area proof of consent for alterations will be required.

Should no authority consents be supplied, your conveyancing solicitor will recommend the best alternatives, which include purchasing an indemnity policy or getting retrospective consent from the appropriate local authority.
