How do we get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?


Several firms advertise so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However extra fees may be added into the terms of engagement. Any disbursements must also be stated on a Purton conveyancing quote. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.


I am purchasing with National Westminster Bank, what do we need to check?


When purchasing with a mortgage, legal work must be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. House buyers need to be aware that, recently, a number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating higher legal costs for purchasers. We, however, are able to act for most lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay your lender's conveyancing fees.


We are buying on a new-build ex-industrial site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste like barium?


Most top-soils in Purton have some degree of contamination, from industry, agriculture and the natural environment . Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as asbestos and groundwater contamination.


In the next few we are expecting to be moving from our detached building near Purton into a bigger home in Melksham at what point to choose a removal company?

Your solicitor would tend to advocate that home sellers delay arranging removals until the contracts have exchanged as prior to this usually a moving date will not have been confirmed. For a local Wiltshire company Abbeymead, 37 Stone La, Lydiard Millicent, Swindon, SN5 3LD Phone: 01793 771199 or Swindon Removal Services, Stone House Farm/37 Stone La, Lydiard Millicent, Swindon, SN5 3LD Tel: 01793 771010.


We have a house to purchase. How do we ensure fast conveyancing?


As is often reported, a fast completion is essential to is to employing a communicative conveyancer. There are a range of tasks you, as the purchaser, can do to speed up your conveyancing. These include:

  • confirming your mortgage offer
  • keeping in regular contact with the conveyancer
  • responding to your conveyancer by phone, fax or email wherever possible


Do we need a chancel search if we are intending to buy in the parish of Cricklade St Sampson?


The lawyer might recommend that a chancel search be taken out. Although some Parochial Church Councils have taken the decision to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not automatically be the case for future owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


We are intending to buy a 1960's property. Do we need property searches?


Conveyancing searches are a standardised bundle of enquiries carried out on your behalf. Searches are strongly recommended, however they deal with the legal aspects of the purchase.


How is Purton contaminated land checked during the conveyancing process?


Many of contaminants caused by natural causes may seriously affect land in Purton, like shallow mining. An environmental search can give more clarity. Contamination can be caused by local waste sites, including Parkgate Farm, Wiltshire, SN5 4HG.
