Q.

I need low cost conveyancing. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Confusion over this issue catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional charges may inflate the final invoice. Additional fees listed in the small print should be reasonable and clear and only apply in cases where the conveyancer must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

Unfortunate personal circumstances dictate that we really need to exchange contracts on the sale of our auctioned house in a very short time frame, do you use fast Abridge solicitors ?

A.

Q.

Can Abridge brownfield site top-soil still be contaminated?

A.

Abridge's local area has a history of contamination from industry and natural causes, like much of the UK. Other sources of contaminated land include groundwater contamination.

Q.

If we are buying near Abridge, in the parish of Chappel, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Your Abridge conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. Chancel repair may be apportioned on the current owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

What environmental concerns can contaminate land in Abridge, and will they be properly investigated?

A.

Many of contaminants can damage residential property in Abridge, and factors such as infilled land and local historic industrial processes will be considered as part of the environmental searches.

Q.

The estate agent we are using in Chellaston has put forward the solicitor . Will it be cheaper to use this firm?

A.

Estate agent referrals are a common path whereby buyers get a solicitor. Such referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as the agent may recommend the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

In what ways does my conveyancing solicitor in Abridge advise me on the potential risk of local flooding in the Abridge area on a Victorian property we are purchasing?

A.

A lawyer will carry out property conveyancing searches, which include Abridge flood risk area data. A significantly more detailed dedicated flood risk search, for instance the Landmark search, will typically be advocated by the property solicitor in Abridge if the results of the environmental search suggest flood risk to the property.

Q.

What will the council tax cost me on a new build Band D maisonette in Abridge?
