Oakham information:

Oakham train station is approximately 1 mile from Oakham. Oakham's nearest airport is Tollerton, Nottingham City Airport.

The nearest hospital is Rutland Memorial.


How do we find fixed rate conveyancing in Oakham?


Various conveyancers promote cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement that unknowing home owners have not reviewed Additional costs which are listed in the terms should be reasonable and clear. They only be applied if the conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


How is contaminated land in Oakham checked?


A wide range of contaminants caused by natural causes may reduce the value of land in Oakham, and an environmental search will confirm that a specific property can be impacted by contaminants in the area including hazardous and regulated installations. Brookes Court, Leicestershire, LE15 9DY is one such potential cause of contamination in Oakham.


In respect to the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands we are wondering whether flood risk searches might not be exacting enough?


A Oakham property solicitor will get additional informative property conveyancing searches if the standard conveyancing searches flag up a Oakham flood risk.

You can also speak to a next door neighbour to gain more insight or local Rutland flood damage business - e.g. Moss Beck Ltd, 21 Main St, Barrowden, Oakham, LE15 8EQ Tel: 01572 747680.


I am purchasing a home in Frisby on the Wreak. Will it be necessary to get a chancel search?


A conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search, irrespective of the parish in which the property being purchased is found. In older areas of Oakham, chancel repair may be apportioned on current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils

may have spared previous owners or tenants, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.


Does Homeward Legal administer the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Oakham?


Homeward Legal is very knowledgeable with auction buyers and sellers. Our niche auction team of property solicitors have been instructed by numerous buyers at local Oakham auctions including Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Savvy bidders will pick a property conveyancing lawyer as ahead of time as possible to allow for a detailed report of the documents before the day of the auction. After the auction day arrives, the lawyer has to be ready for complete the purchase inside 28 days after exchange as typically required by the auction conditions.


We are intending to be moving from our semi detached house in Oakham into a bigger home in Ketton . At what point to book a removal company?


Most conveyancers will recommend that home buyers and sellers hold off booking a removals company until exchange of contracts as in advance of this commonly an agreed home moving date wont have been fixed.

For more information try Grant Ron Removals Ltd, 15 Nightingale Way, Oakham, LE15 6ES Telephone: 01572 757029.


Should I get a chancel liability search? We are purchasing a property in Oakham.


The judgement in Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank in 2003 confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Oakham Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Oakham church lands include All Saints.
