We are trying to find affordable conveyancing. Will we get a quote or and estimate?


Both high-street and online conveyancers advertise cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra costs are often hiding in small print, left unregarded by busy buyers and sellers Your conveyancing quote should also clearly state any disbursements. Any extra fees listed in the solicitor's terms should be reasonable.


In the next few we are anticipating to move out of our period home in Purfleet into a property in Pitsea at what point to select a removals firm?


We tend to encourage home buyers and sellers hold off organising removals until the contracts have exchanged as typically an actual home moving date will not have been contractually agreed. Why not try Mac Services, Bretts Farm/Romford Rd, Aveley, South Ockendon, RM15 4XD Telephone: 01708 682828.


The owner appears to have added roof aerials on the maisonette which I think might possibly infringe on Purfleet conservation area criteria.


Your instructed property solicitor is required to verify if your proposed purchase is inside a conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have the essential permission from the local authority.


When in the process should I instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Purfleet?


The short answer is, earlier is preferable. Early instruction of a firm to act on your Purfleet sale or purchase for a purchase may mean that you will the details of your Purfleet solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers.


Does a Purfleet conveyancer conduct any property searches on the Essex Sixties end-of-terrace building I am intending to purchase?


The routine procedure is to obtain these searches - Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environment Search as well as any specific local searches e.g. a Planning and local information.


Should I get a home surveyor to look into our house purchase in Purfleet?


The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors firmly recommend that the majority of purchasers in Purfleet book a house surveyor to undertake a survey when purchasing in Purfleet. Buyers should be aware that there are a wide range of problems which will impact a property, which will not be addressed during a property valuation, for example cracks around door frames.


My husband and I are intending to buy in Purfleet, and would like to find out if there are any areas of conservation.


Areas deemed to be of architectural merit, such as historic transport links, will be designated as conservation areas. Purfleet itself is named as a conservation area. You may wish to contact the local council if you have specific questions, but your conveyancing lawyer will investigate this in detail.
