Are buyers frequently gazumped in Thornhill?


Gazumping happens when a seller accepts a purchaser's offer, only to later reject it in favour of a greater offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a risk of being gazumped. Consider instructing a solicitor as soon as you can to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.


Would getting a Homebuyer Report be required when we are purchasing a house in Thornhill?


We strongly advise that all purchasers in Thornhill book a building survey. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of defects that can affect a property, which include failed double glazing. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.


Are Thornhill many conservation areas going to constrain us?


Buyers in Thornhill should be aware of several local areas of conservation. You may wish to contact the local authority for more detail, but your conveyancing solicitor will investigate this in detail.


Is contaminated land in Thornhill an issue?


Thornhill property may have been contaminated by a range of natural and human-influenced issues, and an environmental search should clarify to what extent a house is affected by contaminants in the region such as overhead transmission lines or proximity to scrap yards.


Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like aerials and satellite dishes?


Purchasers are frequently confused by the vagueness surrounding what fixtures and fittings should be included with a property. The parties' may have widely differing assumptions about what will be included; this makes the completion of a fixtures and fittings form essential.
