Q.

How do we get a cheap solicitor to own a 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, and many conveyancers claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing. Often additional fees may increase your solicitor's invoice. The disbursements to be paid should also be clearly stated on a quote Extra fees included in terms and conditions needs to be fair and reasonable. They only be applied if the lawyer is required to complete extra work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

We are buying a 1940s maisonette in the boundary of Bagshot conservation area, where does one locate information in respect of the current state of repair?

A.

Conservation areas are specified by the local authority (Surrey Heath) who oversee conservation area concerns from public spaces to the avoidance of neon signs. English Heritage have produced records of the state of conservation areas.

Q.

What will a Bagshot conveyancing lawyer do if the house we are buying is inside the boundary of a local authority conservation area and has ugly cladding installed?

Your instructed property solicitor is required to confirm whether your new home is located within a conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have required consents from the Surrey Heath council.Should no authority consents be in evidence, the solicitor will advise you of the options e.g. getting an indemnity insurance policy or getting retrospective consent from the appropriate local authority.

Q.

Which Bagshot mortgage lenders do you work with?

A.

We are able to work with the bulk of lenders listed with the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Bagshot, like West Surrey Financial Services, 1a/White Hart Parade/London Rd, Blackwater, Camberley, GU17 9AD, Rampart Services, 52A Horsell Moor, Woking, GU21 4NJ, and Howard Taylor Associates, 79 Victoria Road, Farnborough, GU14 7PL.

Q.

Do I need to use a conveyancing that often works with by the estate agent?

A.

Agent recommendations are a common practice route for buyers to find a solicitor. These referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as the agent may prefer to suggest the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

My partner and I are purchasing a residence in Bagshot, and would like to establish whether there are many conservation areas.

A.

The areas around Bagshot include a range of areas of conservation. The local authority will provide more details about local areas of conservation, and the conveyancing lawyer handling your purchase will discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.

Q.

If land is found to be contaminated, can we have the topsoil easily remedied?

A.

Remediation of contaminated land may be possible, but it can be costly. Contact a local specialist such as Tillers Turf, London Rd, Bagshot, GU19 5JB for further information.

Q.

At what point do I need to arrange a solicitor to act for us?

A.

Whether buying or selling, earlier is preferable. Some authors advocate postponing instruction until an offer is accepted, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.
