Q.

What makes conveyancing work to buy in Andover to be so delayed? Should we be worried?

A.

Conveyancing will occasionally take more time even where there is no chain. Some delays are regrettably out of the solicitors' hands. We endeavour to diminish their impact wherever it is feasible by driving the transaction forward. Delays can include slow solicitors acting for the other side.

Q.

Is contaminated land an issue in Andover?

A.

Land will be contaminated by a range of environmental concerns, like overhead transmission lines. An environmental search will give more information. Contamination can be caused by local waste sites, including Apsley Farm Landfill Site, Pickett Piece, Hampshire, SP11 6NA.

Q.

DIY conveyancing without the aid of a property lawyer in Andover appears to be becoming possible when selling a home but would it really be realistic ?

A.

Legally speaking there is no argument at all why you cant apply this approach and carry out the greater majority of the legal work unaided. In reality however, a conveyancing solicitor in Andover is familiar with a huge number of skilled tasks ranging from chasing mortgage offer and communicating with managing agents which need a skilled professional.

Q.

What type of local environmental searches regarding the risk of local flooding around Hampshire will a property lawyer in Andover be able to do?

A.

A key part of the legal process of purchasing a property involves the conveyancing lawyer conducting property conveyancing searches that provide some details with regard to Andover flood risk area.

Q.

We are purchasing a Andover property with Darlington Building Society - what will I need to be aware of?

A.

Until recently, almost all conveyancing solicitors could act for the large mortgage lenders. Recently, a number of lenders have limited the firms who can act for them. For property purchasers, this can result in significantly higher conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal, however, are able to act for the vast majority of lenders in the UK.
