I am trying to find a fixed rate conveyancing quote. How do we get a quote?

Is a building survey advisable when buying a property?


It is strongly advised that all buyers arrange a home surveyor to carry out a survey. Buyers should be aware that there are a wide range of defects which have a negative impact on a property. These include subsidence. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.


Will my conveyancing for my sale in Much Hadham take into account any hidden costs?


Homeward Legal's solicitors will not charge any hidden charges for standard conveyancing work.


If you are buying a Much Hadham property next to a priory, will you need a chancel search?


As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Much Hadham which was once owned by a 'lay rectors' can be liable for maintenance of local churches. Following a change in the law, interest over any affected

land must be registered by October 2013. Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Church properties in the local area include St Andrew.


What does 'gazumping' involve?


Gazumping arises when a buyer's offer is, following agreement, later rejected by the seller and then selecting a greater offer. The risk of gazumping exists for almost any purchase. Consider instructing your solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.


As a consequence of the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall in the future we are worried that property environmental searches aren't detailed enough?


A good Much Hadham property solicitor should carry out in depth flood risk searches if the standard conveyancing searches spots a any kind of risk.

Sometimes property buyers to also get in touch with a neighbour for that further peace of mind or regional Hertfordshire flood repair expert, try Brett E G Ltd, 3 Wheatcroft Ter/Hadham Cross, Much Hadham, SG10 6AP Tel: 01279 842946.


Would you recommend taking steps to bypass paying for stamp duty to HM Revenue?


We firmly advise against any stamp duty mitigation scheme. These schemes are expensive and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed. There have been several official schemes, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'. A conveyancing solicitor should confirm whether you are eligible.


Do we need a chancel search if I plan to purchase in the parish of Newnham?


A conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search, irrespective of the parish in which the residence being purchased is found. In older areas of Much Hadham, chancel repair may be imposed on the owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. For property in the parish of Newnham, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
