How do I get the best conveyancing rates in Aylestone for a £581,000 house?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this issue catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra charges may inflate your final bill. Any charges should be reasonable. They only come into force where your lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

For fast conveyancing to buy a £855,000 house, how could we speed up our transaction?

It is certainly possible for you to take care of the legal work yourself.

Furthermore solicitors practices are required by their regulator to be in possession of appropriate insurance cover in order to protect you from any professional errors.

Q.

We are buying on a ex-industrial use land. Could the top-soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

Restrictions exist to limit soil contamination, but some will remain in the environment for decades. Metal contamination of soil in Aylestone is more likely to occur near ex-industrial or waste handling sites. Data on other contaminants, like organohalides, will also be included in an environmental search.

Owners of property in an area near nearby church property may be required to contribute towards repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability.

Your solicitor can provide more details. Aylestone church properties include St Andrew.
