How do I find the best conveyancing rates for a 149,000 home?


Both high-street and online law firms claim to offer cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra costs are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement which home owners may have not read carefully A conveyancing quote ought to define third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid. Any charges included in terms and conditions should be clearly defined.


I plan to purchase a residence in the parish of Belton. Is a chancel search necessary?


Regardless of the Suffolk parish in which you are buying, the solicitor instructed to handle the transaction should confirm that a chancel search is ordered. In Suffolk's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the current owners of a house where church councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.


May my conveyancing introduce any additional charges?


Our solicitors do not charge any hidden fees. Some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote, which they will not be required to adhere to.


Will my Suffolk property lawyer carry out official or personal searches on my home purchase?

The conveyancing solicitor will advise about the best route, depending on factors like lender requirements. For personal searches, a conveyancer may look for a local search company e.g Renaissance Environmental Ltd., The Menta Centre, Eastern Way, Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, IP32 7AB Tel: 01284 765563.


We are buying a property where the seller has unfortunately installed roof aerials to the maisonette which I think might possibly contravene Haverhill Queen Street conservation area rules.


A solicitor will always establish whether the property is within a conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have requisite consent from the Mid Suffolk council.


I would like to know which Suffolk lenders your conveyancing solicitors work with. Which panels are your solicitors members of?


We have worked with all the major lenders financing Suffolk homebuyers. Suffolk lenders and mortgage specialists include Mortgages Direct, 145 High St, Colchester, CO1 1PG, Mortgage Bureau, High Baxter St, Bury St. Edmunds, IP33 1ES, and Mortgage 321, Lodge La, Langham, Colchester, CO4 5NE. Your conveyancing solicitors should be able to advise further.


What environmental concerns can affect land in Suffolk. Are these properly investigated?


Many of contaminants can lessen the desirability residential property in Suffolk, and factors like infilled land will be considered as part of the environmental searches.


We are buying on a new-build brownfield site. Can the top-soil still be contaminated?


Policies and legislation are in place to control pollution, waste, water and chemical contamination. Other sources of contaminated land include groundwater contaminants like phenols and acidic compounds.
