How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? We are trying to find a low cost conveyancing quote in Otley.


Many firms advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra costs are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. Any additional fees should be reasonable. They only be applied if the solicitor is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should also be clearly stated on a quote. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


What is the right point to I book the house removal firm?


The best advice is for home movers to avoid making arrangements with a removal company until such time as all parties have confirmed the date which takes place once final contracts are signed. For more information speak to Ward & Son Carriers, 10 Newall Avenue, Otley, LS21 2EA Tel: 01943 461541.


How early should I find a solicitor?


If you use a conveyancing firm offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the earlier in the process you can instruct a conveyancing firm, the better. The legal work can then begin straight away. Some groups advocate postponing instruction until the offer is accepted, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.


Of main Otley lenders, who is on your panel?


We are able to work with all the major lenders assisting Otley purchasers. Otley lenders and mortgage specialists include C P R, 6 Rockwood Hill Ct, Calverley, Pudsey, LS28 5WD, Property Net Financial Services, A/318 Keighley Rd, Bradford, BD9 4EX, and Glendale Finance, Glendale House/18 Northgate, Baildon, Shipley, BD17 6JX. The lawyer handling the work for your Otley purchase or sale will be able to address any specific requests your lender may have.


I am purchasing a house in Otley. Can I find out if the house is in a designated conservation area?


These areas denote regions of 'special architectural and historic interest'. The local council will provide more details about local conservation areas, and the conveyancing solicitor handling your purchase address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.


Is a deed of covenant a disbursement or a fee?


Comparing conveyancing quotes is often challenging, considering wide variations in formatting and terminology. This charge is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a conveyancing quote.


Does the property lawyer in Otley report on the risk and history of possible flooding in the Otley region?


The conveyancing lawyer will conduct environmental searches that should include Otley flood risk data.


Do you recommend that we get a chancel search? We are buying a flat by parsonage grounds in Otley.


Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Otley Church council. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Otley Parochial Church Council enforce liability.
