How do we get a discount conveyancing quote?


Many online and high street property lawyers offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra fees are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Fees should be fair and reasonable. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.


Which local authority is responsible for Kingsbridge?


Kingsbridge is located in South Hams District Council, Follaton House, Plymouth Road, Totnes, Devon, TQ9 5NE, contact: 01803 861 235


The estate agent has offered a lawyer whom they usually use. Is it risky to instruct this solicitor?


Both agents and mortgage brokers will often endorse a conveyancing solicitor. These referrals should be thoroughly considered, as an agent may select whichever firm pays the most per referral, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.


It seems that caesium soil contamination may be an issue in Kingsbridge. Please advise.


Kingsbridge industrial or agricultural can cause topsoil contamination. Metal contamination of topsoil in Kingsbridge is more likely to occur near waste treatment sites. Data on other contaminants, like water contaminants such as petrol and radioactive waste, will also be included in an environmental search.


Bookshops and the web both have an increasing number online articles about do it yourself conveyancing. Do we necessarily need to instruct a property lawyer in Kingsbridge ?


There are no reasons why you cant apply this approach and take care of the legal and technical work without an expert property lawyer in Kingsbridge. That said, a conveyancing solicitor carries out a large number of activities including chasing mortgage offer and interpreting management accounts some of which need a qualified professional.

Above all else do it yourself conveyancers will be working without relevant indemnity cover which practicing solicitors practices are bound to have.


Will I need a survey for this house purchase?


It is strongly recommended that most Kingsbridge buyers arrange a surveyor to undertake a survey. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of concerns that affect a property, including flat roof leaks, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.


What will contaminate land in Kingsbridge. Are these properly investigated?


Many of contaminants caused by human activities may impair residential property in Kingsbridge, and an environmental search will confirm that a property can be impacted by contaminants in the area like proximity to landfill sites and masts or pylons. Meadow Wood, Pooley Lane, Devon, TQ7 3QRcould be a local cause of land contamination in Kingsbridge.


Do you need a chancel search? We are buying on the same street as a church built in around the 17th Century in Kingsbridge.


Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Kingsbridge Church council. A chancel search is used to check that such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. Kingsbridge ecclesiastical properties where a chancel search may be necessary include St Edmund King and Martyr.
