How do I get fixed rate conveyancing?


Numerous firms offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra fees are often hiding in the terms. Busy, stressed buyers and sellers ignore these terms at their peril. Extra costs found in the terms ought to be fair. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Is a mining search passed on at cost?


Comparing conveyancing quotes is often challenging, given the different terminology. This charge,e.g., is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on at cost.


Would you advise that we get a chancel liability search if I am buying a home on the same street as a 1300s rectory in Woolacombe?


Owners of property in Woolacombe may be subject to chancel repair liability. Parochial Church Councils in Woolacombe must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. The solicitor acting on your behalf will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Woolacombe church lands where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Sabinus.


I plan to buy a property in Dunterton. Is a chancel search necessary?


The Woolacombe conveyancing solicitor might recommend a chancel search, whichever parish in which the home

being purchased is found. Chancel repair dues can be collected on new owners of a home where parish councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.


What length of time can the legal work to buy a house generally take, in your experience? I already have an offer.


The number of weeks needed to transact a house will vary. This is influenced by a number of issues. These could include if you plan to take out a mortgage. With our specialist solicitors, the matter is handled quickly, and to the highest standard of service.


I have read about the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England I am wondering whether conveyancing searches (environmental) won't be exacting enough?


An experienced Woolacombe conveyancer will suggest that you apply for flood risk searches if the standard search determines a significant risk Woolacombe flood risk area data

Perhaps you could converse with a close neighbour to get added information or regional Devon flood repair expert try Howard N J, 17 South St, Woolacombe, EX34 7BB Tel: 01271 870619.


How is contaminated land in Woolacombe identified when purchasing?


Woolacombe property may be contaminated by a range of environmental factors, like other land contamination or waste treatment sites in the area. An environmental search will reveal this in more detail.


What specific searches does a Woolacombe conveyancing solicitor do when instructed on a Woolacombe flat?


The customary legal procedure will be to get Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW), Environmental, Tin Mining Search and China Clay Search and occasionally specific searches for example Anti Money Laundering Search.
