Q.

How do we find fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

Both high-street and online firms purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement. Your quote ought to define the disbursements to be paid. Extra charges which are listed in your solicitor's terms needs to be reasonable.

Q.

Which body is obliged for keeping order in the status of the conservation areas in Badsey?

A.

Conservation areas are specified by the local Wychavon planning authority, who manage the state of the area including things like poorly maintained pavements, coloured road surfaces and the historic layout of roads. English Heritage, a government body, have produced records of the condition of conservation areas.

Q.

What is the danger of gazumping?

A.

The practice of deciding to reject a previously accepted offer when a higher offer is made by a second buyer is known as gazumping. Though being gazumped is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a danger. Consider instructing an efficient solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.

Q.

If my family are purchasing next to a church built in the 14th Century in Badsey, do you need to get a chancel search?

There are fifteen thousand 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. A chancel search confirms that such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Badsey Church of England properties where chancel liability may apply include St James.

Q.

What average time will it take our conveyancing solicitor to conclude all of the conveyancing work on a flat in a sixties building we are buying?

A.

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere from 3 weeks and 3 months dependent on various issues, like the efficiency of the vendor's property solicitor, or the time taken to issue draft contracts. Our chosen conveyancers are extremely results-orientated, with the goal of completing the process in as little time as we possibly can.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Badsey?

A.

Badsey is located in Wychavon Council, Civic Centre, Queen Elizabeth Drive, Pershore, Worcestershire, WR10 1PT, contact: 01386 565000

Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if I am intending to buy in the parish of Lower Sapey?

A.

A property solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered, whichever parish in which the building being purchased is found. In Badsey's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on current owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have spared previous owners or tenants. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

Is a house survey required when we are purchasing a house in Badsey?

A.

It is advised that all buyers in Badsey arrange a home surveyor when purchasing in Badsey. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of problems that have a negative impact on a property, which include unsafe chimney circulation or cavity wall tie failure, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.
