How do I get fixed rate conveyancing in Woodcote?


This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many law firms offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Any additional costs should be fair and reasonable. They come into force only if your lawyer must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Your quote should list any disbursements to be paid.


For fast conveyancing on the purchase of a £500,000 house, what can we do to accelerate our transaction?


The key to faster conveyancing is to use a proactive, diligent solicitor. There are several tasks you as the purchaser can also do to accelerate the legal work. These include:

  • keeping in regular contact with your solicitor
  • promptly answering your solicitor's questions (by email if possible)
  • organising your finances, including arranging a mortgage


We have found an abundance of very helpful manuals about doing your own legal work. Do we necessarily want to use a Woodcote lawyer ?


Theoretically speaking there is absolutely no argument at all why a home mover cannot take care of he legal process unaided. In reality however, a lawyer typically handles

a large number of activities ranging from chasing completion statements and communicating with managing agents some of which require experience.

Moreover solicitors are under a duty to take out indemnity cover to shield you in the event of negligence.


What length of time may the conveyancing process need, in your opinion?


The length of time needed to transact a property will vary, affected by a range of considerations. These may include where management information is required. Our conveyancers strive to ensure your sale, purchase or remortgage is undertaken with the utmost care and speed.


We are purchasing a property in the parish of Oxford All Saints. Will we need a chancel search?


Your conveyancer could advise a chancel search. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have previously chosen not to do so. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.


Is it necessary that I get a chancel search? I am purchasing on the same road as parish grounds in Woodcote.


There are fifteen thousand ecclesiastical parishes throughout the country. Property owners within some of these may be required to subsidise the repair of a local church. Parochial Church Councils in Woodcote must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. The solicitor acting on your behalf will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Woodcote Church of England properties include St Leonard.


Lawyers in Woodcote order official property conveyancing searches when instructed to act for a purchase client - what particular ones?


When you are obtaining a mortgage the mortgage lender will expect at least a specified set of searches, including the following Local Authority Search, Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environmental and perhaps less common searches, which may include a HS2 Search.


How is Woodcote contaminated land investigated?


Residential property may have been contaminated by a wide range of environmental factors, and factors such as potentially contaminative use of nearby land and coal mining will be reported on in environmental search results.
