What are the best conveyancing rates for a £102,000 property?


Both high-street and online solicitors purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often additional charges are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Additional charges listed in terms and conditions should be reasonable. They only apply to matters if your solicitor must complete additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.


Will I need a home buyers survey?


We firmly recommend that purchasers arrange an inspection if buying in Sawbridgeworth. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of concerns that can negatively affect a property, including blocked drains. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.


Which local authority looks after Sawbridgeworth?


Sawbridgeworth is located in East Hertfordshire District Council, The Causeway, Bishop's Stortford, Hertfordshire, CM23 2EN, phone: 01279 655 264


Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if I am intending to purchase in the parish of Broxbourne, near Sawbridgeworth?


A conveyancing lawyer could advise that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish where the house

being bought is located. In older areas of Sawbridgeworth, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on current owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners.


What will the council tax cost me for a investment Band G apartment in Sawbridgeworth?


The relevant council tax band should conventionally be identified within the title report along with the local authority. Correct charges for Sawbridgeworth are set out in detail online at the Epping Forest local authority site. Currently (08 January 2013) rates are:

Doing your own conveyancing without using a conveyancing solicitor in Sawbridgeworth is becoming possible as a buyer and seller of a maisonette. However, would it actually be a false economy ?


Legally speaking there is absolutely no reason at all why a home buyer cant go down that route and handle the majority of the legal process on your own. However, a conveyancing solicitor in Sawbridgeworth juggles a large number of skilled tasks including approving completion statements or checking the lease which really need a skilled professional.


What are Sawbridgeworth's 'conveyancing searches'?


Searches are a standardised bundle of enquiries requested by the buyer's conveyancing lawyer through several authorities, and deal with the legal condition of the property's title.


How is Sawbridgeworth contaminated land investigated when purchasing?


A range of contaminants caused by human activities could irreparably damage property. Contaminants including masts or pylons and pollution incidents should be considered as part of the appropriate search.
