Q.

How do we find fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

Numerous firms promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often additional costs are often hiding in the terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers, eager to get underway. Additional fees ought to be reasonable and be applied only where your solicitor must complete unanticipated additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

For a fast completion on the purchase of a £954k residence, what do we need to aim for?

A.

It is a truism that a fast conveyancing transaction is essential to is to employing a proactive conveyancing solicitor. Consider the following:

  • Are phone, fax and email their preferred methods of contact
  • Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?
  • Do they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?

Q.

What average time will it take our assigned solicitor to exchange contracts the legal work for a semi detached recently developed home we are intending to purchase?

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere between a month and 12 weeks depending on any number of things, like the efficiency of the vendor's property solicitor, or the speed of your lender. Homeward Legal's property lawyers are very focused on communication exchanging as quickly as we possibly can.

Q.

I plan to purchase a home in Middle Claydon with East Claydon. Should we get a chancel search?

A.

Regardless of the Amersham parish in which you are buying, the lawyer may suggest that a chancel search is taken out. Although some parish councils have decided to exact chancel repairs on current owners of affected property, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not continue to be so. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

How does the lawyer in Amersham advise on the risk and history of local flooding in the Amersham area?

A.

An experienced conveyancing lawyer will apply for standard conveyancing and environmental searches that incorporate Amersham flood risk area data information. An inexpensive (around twenty pounds) and more thorough dedicated flood risk search (most likely a Landmark Database search) may possibly be advised by your conveyancer in Amersham if in the event that the environmental search show any risk of flooding.

Q.

At what point do I need to instruct a solicitor to handle our sale?

A.

Simply, the earlier, the better. Prompt instruction of a solicitor can reduce any chance of your transaction aborting.

Q.

My husband and I are intending to buy in Amersham. Are there many conservation areas in the area?

A.

Conservation areas cover areas of architectural or historic interest. These restrictions can add to maintenance costs, but the benefits include protection for parks and green spaces. Your property solicitor will advise further.

Q.

Would you advise that I get searches for chancel liability? I am purchasing in Amersham.

A.

Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Amersham Church council. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. Your conveyancing lawyer can provide more details. Church properties in this area include St Mary with Coleshill.
