How do I find low cost conveyancing in Penrith?


Several firms claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra fees may be added into the terms of engagement. Excited sellers and buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Extra fees included in the solicitor's terms needs to be fair and clearly defined. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


The property seller has fitted windows on the flat in Penrith which we think may defy local conservation area criteria


The property lawyer is required to see whether your new home is inside a designated conservation area and whether any alterations have appropriate permissions from the Eden planning authority. In the event that no authority consents be in evidence, your solicitor will inform you of all options, which include obtaining an indemnity insurance policy or getting retrospective approval from Eden planning authority.


When should I instruct a conveyancer to handle our purchase?


With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, the earlier in the process you can instruct a firm, the better. The legal work can then commence immediately. Some authors suggest waiting before instruction until an offer is accepted, but you will then be at a serious disadvantage in the event of a contract race, or buyer eager to move quickly.


Will a property solicitor in Penrith request personal or official searches on my property purchase?


The conveyancing solicitor will make a recommendation as to the best type of search, depending on issues like search price. If personal searches are used a conveyancing solicitor may look for a local search company for example Chris Rebanks t/a Rebanks Researches, 28 Frenchfield Gardens, Penrith, Cumbria, CA11 8TK Tel: 01768 890004 Fax: 01768 890004


If I am buying a Penrith apartment near a priory, will we need to get a chancel liability search?


Chancel liability can require some home owners to contribute towards the cost of repairs to church property in the locality. Following a change in the law, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. A solicitor will be able to advise further. Penrith church properties where chancel liability may apply include Christ Church, St Patrick and St. Andrew's Church.


It seems that nickel (Ni) soil contamination may be an issue in Penrith. Please advise.


Restrictions exist to control soil contamination, decades after exposure the effect of some contaminants can be felt. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as insecticides.


As a result of the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England we are anxious that environmental searches aren't exacting enough?


Environmental searches handled by your property lawyer in Penrith should also include the more thorough flood search if the risk warrants it.

If you are anxious you might try to get in touch with a next door neighbour.


We are intending to buy a 1950s building in a designated Penrith conservation area. Where can I find details in regards to the present standard of repair of the conservation area?


English Heritage, a government body, have conducted a survey and created a detailed list about the state of repair of conservation areas as well as the trend of the area. Conservation areas in Penrith are nominated by the local authority (Eden) who administer everything from private spaces to the inhibition of poorly maintained public spaces.
