We need an affordable conveyancing quote. and what is included?


Many conveyancers advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional fees may inflate your final bill. Any disbursements to be paid should be included on a quote


Ahli United Bank is going to be our mortgage lender - what do we need to know?


Buyers in Lakenheath should be aware that, over the last two years, some lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, potentially creating increased legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal will act for most mortgage lenders.


Is contaminated land a problem in Lakenheath?


A wide range of contaminants can affect land, such as limestone or gypsum quarrying. An environmental search will offer more detail.


Will my conveyancing solicitor in Lakenheath report back on the risk and history of floods in the Lakenheath area?


A necessary component in the conveyancing protocol involved in buying a home involves the conveyancing solicitor applying for conveyancing and environmental searches that set out specific information on the subject of Lakenheath area flood risk. Depending on the results, a conveyancing solicitor in Lakenheath may suggest a more involved (e.g. Landmark) flood risk search.


Will my assigned lawyer in Lakenheath report back to me about the amount to be paid of the council tax on a Band B maisonette prior to completing on the purchase?


Your property's band will typically be set out within the conveyancing report on title along with the local council Up-to-date rates for residents of Lakenheath are set out in detail on the Forest Heath council site. At the time of writing (24 February 2013) the rates are:

  • Band A - £1,007.00
  • Band B - £1,175.00
  • Band C - £1,343.00
  • Band D - £1,510.00
  • Band E - £1,846.00
  • Band F - £2,182.00
  • Band G - £2,517.00
  • Band H - £3,021.00


How soon do we need to arrange a solicitor?


Whether buying or selling, instructing as soon as possible is wise. Instructing your solicitor sooner could mitigate the chance of your transaction falling through.


If we are buying in the parish of Stansfield, are we advised to get a chancel search?


The property lawyer is likely to recommend a chancel search, irrespective of the parish where the house being bought is found. Chancel repair may be apportioned on the current owners of a house where church councils have previously chosen not to do so, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.


Regarding the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since records began, we are apprehensive that conveyancing searches (environmental) might not be exacting enough?


Property environmental searches handled by your Lakenheath conveyancing solicitor should include a far more specialist search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

If you are still anxious consider contacting a neighbour or local resident.
