How do I find fixed rate conveyancing?


This matter catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing. Often additional charges may increase your solicitor's invoice. Any charges found in terms of engagement ought to be clearly defined. Applicable disbursements should also be clearly stated on the quote. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.


I am on a deadline and would like guarantee fast conveyancing, what can we do to speed up the process?


The key to a fast conveyancing transaction is to use a experienced solicitor. There are a number of tasks you, as the purchaser, can do to speed up your conveyancing. These include:

  • arranging your mortgage offer
  • calling or emailing your solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays
  • promptly completing and return any forms


Should I opt for a lawyer who usually works with by our local agent?


An agent will have influence over a solicitor they refer many clients to, and can therefore pressure a solicitor to complete sooner. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.


Lawyers in Melksham do formal conveyancing searches when instructed to act for a home purchaser - what specific searches?


If applying for a mortgage a mortgage lender will expect at least specific searches, including the following for Melksham: Local Authority (council), Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environmental, and possibly specific local searches such as Land charge Search (bankruptcy only).


We are intending to buy an extended flat in a designated conservation area in Melksham, where does one find more information on the current state of repair?

Conservation areas in Melksham are set up by the local authority (Wiltshire) who maintain conservation area concerns from the historic layout of roads to the avoidance of new developments.


Handling the legal work without a Melksham conveyancing solicitor appears to be becoming possible as a seller of a flat. Would it be prudent ?


On paper there are no reasons why a home seller shouldn't look after the legal work unaided. However, a conveyancer in Melksham handles a large number of roles from ranging from interpreting replies to enquiries or dealing with requisition on os1 some of which need a qualified solicitor.


We are buying a Melksham home with Direct Line Mortgages - what do I need to consider?


When taking out a mortgage, a mortgage provider will need legal work to be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. Buyers should be aware that some lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them. This can mean greater conveyancing costs for home buyers. We can act on behalf of the majority of mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.


Is soil remediation of contaminated property available in Melksham?


A degree of remediation is possible is some cases, although it can be expensive. A local specialist such as Wiltshire Turf Supplies Ltd, Unit 10 Indus Acre/Avro Business Centre/Avro Way, Bowerhill, Melksham, SN12 6TP can provide further information.
