I am trying to find discount conveyancing. What should we check?


Many property buyers and sellers seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many conveyancers promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional costs may be added into the terms.

In relation to the serious flooding in the UK in April 2012 I am apprehensive that conveyancing and environmental searches might not be thorough enough?


Flood searches carried out by your conveyancer in Thatcham should also include the far more in depth search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

Sometimes property buyers to speak to a neighbour or local resident for some more assurance if you are still worried or regional Berkshire flood repair builder, such as: M & J Deacon Builders Ltd, St. Anton Bucklebury Alley, Cold Ash, Thatcham, RG18 9NJ Tel: 01635 200377.


If we are buying a property on the same street as a 1400s vicarage in Thatcham, will I need to get a search for chancel liability?


Property owners proximate to churches may be required to cover the cost of repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. A chancel search checks that such a liability exists. A solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Thatcham church properties which may give rise to chancel liability include St Barnabas and St Mary.


For fast conveyancing to buy a £904,000 house, what do we need to do?


It is well established that a fast conveyancing transaction is the key to instruct a proactive and experienced property lawyer. There are, in addition, a range of tasks you as the buyer can do, including, ordering a property survey early in the transaction, answering any queries raised by the property lawyer as soon as possible and encouraging your property lawyer to carry out searches promptly.


Do you recommend your solicitors to look after residential property auction conveyancing in Thatcham?


Our solicitors and licensed conveyancers in Thatcham often get instructed by sellers at auction. We consistently inform auction buyers to formally instruct an experienced lawyer well before the auction to allow adequate time for a thorough review of the auction pack.

Thereafter, following the auction day, a lawyer will need to be fully prepared to carry out the legal work in the 4 week time frame, a requirement of standard auction conditions.


I am purchasing an extended building in a designated Thatcham conservation area. Where does one get more data in regards to the state of repair of the Thatcham conservation area?


Conservation areas are created by West Berkshire who maintain things like what can be demolished to the hindrance of poorly maintained public spaces. English Heritage, a government body, maintain a list on the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in Thatcham and throughout England in addition to the exposure to standards slipping.


We are purchasing a residence in Thatcham, and would like to establish whether there are many conservation areas.


There are several conservation areas located near Thatcham. Thatcham itself is named as a conservation area. A property solicitor will confirm potential liability for unauthorised works for affected areas in Thatcham.


Do fixtures and fittings include things like lamps or lightshades?


Mainly, fixtures are 'fixed' to the property and fixtures are free-standing items, such as the oven. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.
