Q.

How do we find the cheapest Audley conveyancing quote?

A.

Various property lawyers promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional charges are often hiding in small print, left unregarded by busy property buyers and sellers Any charges included in terms and conditions should be reasonable and clear. They only be applied if the conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Is your solicitor team set up to move quickly on property auction conveyancing in Audley?

A.

Indeed we deal with auctions throughout the UK and commonly act for bidders at auction. It is crucialto pick a conveyancing company as soon as they can for a detailed review of the property's legal title well in advance of the actual auction.

Subsequently, following the date of the auction your conveyancing lawyer is completely prepared for concluding the legal work in the limited time frame as usually required .

Q.

We are intending to buy a property in the parish of Tettenhall Regis. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

Your solicitor may suggest a chancel search, whichever parish where the property being bought is located. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on new owners of a property where church councils may have spared previous owners or tenants.

Q.

What does the Audley property solicitor recommend if the home I hope to invest in is located in a Newcastle-under-Lyme local authority conservation area and has unsuitable windows fitted?

A.

Newcastle-under-Lyme local authority enquiries conducted by your solicitor during the conveyancing process will find out if the Audley property a designated conservation area and evidence of formal approval for alterations will be required. In the event that no suitable consents be in evidence, the solicitor will advise you of all options for example taking out an indemnity insurance or seeking retrospective approval from the planning authority.

Q.

Which government body has overall responsibility for safeguarding the standard of the conservation areas in Audley and Audley?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage maintain records of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas. Local Audley conservation areas are set up by the local Newcastle-under-Lyme planning authority, who manage everything from including things like street guard rails, non sympathetic doors and what can be demolished.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Audley?

A.

Audley is located in Newcastle-under-Lyme Council, Civic Offices, Merrial Street, Newcastle-under-Lyme ST5 2AG, Call: 01782 717 717

Q.

Will we need to get a chancel search? I am buying close by a 15th Century rectory manor in Audley.

A.

There are 15000 Church of England and Church of Wales parishes in England and Wales. Property owners within some of these may be required to subsidise the repair of a local church. Terms used in a property's name, like 'vicarage', may indicate chancel liability. The solicitor handling your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Church lands in this area which may give rise to chancel liability include S.James the Great.

Q.

Is a deed of postponement passed on at cost?

A.

Some firms hide additional costs as disbursements. It is not always obvious whether a cost is a fee or disbursement, and if it should be included. This charge is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your quote.
