We need to find discount conveyancing. What are the risks?


The confusion over this issue catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing, but additional charges may increase the solicitor's invoice.


Are there any lenders with Wanborough offices?

We are buying on a brownfield site. Could the top-soil be contaminated by industrial waste?


Wanborough industry, agriculture and the natural environment can cause soil contamination. Other sources of contaminated land include water contaminants such as hydrocarbons and trichloroethylene.


Property conveyancing searches may be fine but when one considers recent flooding e g the major flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England are they sufficient to report sufficient information about the risk of flooding in Wanborough?


A good Wanborough property lawyer should always get environmental searches if the standard conveyancing searches determine a significant risk Wanborough flood risk.

For greater assurance perhaps you could speak to a neighbour.


What type of checks as respects the risk of floods in the Wiltshire region will my Wanborough conveyancing solicitor actually apply for a Sixties maisonette we are purchasing?


A qualified property conveyancing lawyer will apply for official environmental searches that incorporate Wanborough flood risk data. An inexpensive (around twenty pounds) and more thorough search (most likely a Landmark Database search) might be suggested by the lawyer in Wanborough if the results of the initial searches identify a potential flood risk to the Sixties maisonette. The most recent (03/01/13) indications at the UK Environment Agency do not reveal any active flood warnings in Wanborough.


Is a survey required when purchasing property?


The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors heavily advise that you book a RICS surveyor. There are many defects that can affect a property, which a conveyancing solicitor will not report on, for example rotten roof timbers or corrosion of pipework.


What should I be conscious of if we acquire a Wanborough property in a Swindon planning authority conservation area ?
