I need a low cost conveyancing quote in Alton. What do I need to check for?


Confusion over this matter catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra costs will be included in the terms. Busy, stressed homeowners ignore these terms at their peril. Additional costs which are listed in terms of engagement should be reasonable and only apply to matters if your conveyancer is required to complete unexpected extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


The property in Alton being purchased is on a ex-industrial use land. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste?


Alton's local area has a history of contamination from agriculture or industry, like much of the UK. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as groundwater contamination and radioactive waste.


In 3 months we are going to be finally moving from our period home in Alton into a new home in Aldershot when to instruct a removal company?


Your solicitor would usually advise that house movers hold off until after formal exchange of contracts because a final home moving date will not have been formalised. Frequently removals companies might impose a late cancellation fee . There are many local and national companies including A Team Man & Van, 26B Pound Gate, Alton, GU34 2HQ Call: 01420 549117.


Should we order a chancel search if I am purchasing in the parish of Longstock?

Regardless of the Alton parish in which you are purchasing, the property lawyer may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. In Alton's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so. For property in the parish of Longstock, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


The estate agent we are using in Aylesbury has put forward a conveyancing solicitor who they generally use. Is it a good idea to instruct them?


Agent referrals are a not uncommon way for home buyers to find a solicitor, however, such referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as the agent may recommend the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.


Do advise on the conveyancing for residential property auction properties in Alton?
