Q.

I am trying to find a cheap solicitor quote to buy leasehold property. What do we need to consider?

A.

Various firms purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional charges are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Any charges which are listed in the terms ought to be fair.

Q.

Our estate agent in Broadstairs has put forward the conveyancing that they have used before. Must I instruct this firm?

A.

It is common practice for agents in Broadstairs to refer a solicitors firm, however, such referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as it may be the case that the agent recommends whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

We need to know which Abingdon lenders you work with. Whose panels are your solicitors members of?

A.

Q.

I am purchasing a 1920's house, is it that necessary that searches are ordered?

A.

Searches are a commonly-used set of enquiries carried out in the interest of the purchaser. These searches do give much needed information and context, but refer specifically to facets affecting the legal title.

Q.

How can we find out if a property is in a conservation area?

A.

Remediation is possible is some cases, but it can be costly. For more insight, contact New Lawn Co, Culham No 1 Site/Station Rd, Culham, Abingdon, OX14 3DA.

Q.

As a consequence of the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since 1920 I am thinking that property environmental searches aren't exacting enough?

A.

Property environmental searches handled by a conveyancing solicitor in Abingdon should also include the more detailed search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

If you remain worried you could attempt to call a close neighbour.

Q.

We are going to buy an extended maisonette in a Abingdon conservation area. How do we find more details about the present state of repair?

Conservation areas are specified by Vale of White Horse who oversee everything from public spaces to the stoppage of advertising hoardings. Following a campaign, English Heritage keep a list of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas.
