Which factors will contaminate land in Axbridge, and should they be a concern?

A.

Q.

The estate agent has named the property solicitor who they generally use. Do I need to use this firm?

A.

Many agents have arrangements with solicitors whereby they refer conveyancing work to them. Such referrals must be carefully considered, as the agent may recommend the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

What length of time does it take our conveyancing solicitor to carry out all of the conveyancing work on a maisonette in a forties home we are purchasing?

A.

The process can take anywhere from 3 weeks and three months, which can be hampered by a number of issues for example the speed of the vendor's property lawyer, or contentious issues that may arise. Homeward Legal's property lawyers are very focused on speed and communication, with the intention of completing the process as quickly as possible.

Q.

In respect of the major flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England we are concerned that flood searches won't be detailed enough?

A.

Property conveyancing searches conducted by a solicitor in Axbridge will include the more detailed search (Landmark) if required.

You can always contact a neighbour of the property for extra local history.

Q.

Would arranging a survey be sensible when purchasing any property?

A.

It is strongly recommended that all purchasers in Axbridge arrange a surveyor. It is a fact that there are a wide range of concerns which will impact a property. These can include severe weathering and roof damage, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.
