Q.

Please confirm the cheapest fee for a £87,000 residence? I need low cost conveyancing.

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many law firms purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms, left unregarded by busy buyers The disbursements to be paid should also be clearly stated on the conveyancing quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Can we check that the residence we are buying is in a conservation area?

A.

Parts of Bakewell considered be of special architectural or historic interest, like model housing estates, may be recorded as areas of conservation. A solicitor will confirm potential liability for unauthorised works.

Q.

I am on a deadline and will need to ensure a fast conveyancing transaction, what can we do to accelerate the transaction?

A.

Contacting a proactive, diligent conveyancing solicitor is essential to fast Bakewell conveyancing. There are numerous things you, as the purchaser, could do to speed up the legal work, including, responding to your conveyancing solicitor by phone, fax or email wherever possible, organising your finances, including arranging a mortgage and keeping in regular contact with your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

Should I employ the conveyancing solicitor suggested by the estate agent in Herefordshire?

A.

If you opt for a solicitor referred this way, you the agent can use their influence to move the conveyancing process along. These referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

When I am buying in Bakewell close to a church constructed around the 13th Century, would you advise that I get a chancel search?

A.

Property owners near to church property in the locality are expected to contribute towards repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Bakewell ecclesiastical properties where a chancel search may be necessary include All Saints.

Q.

Should we get a building surveyor to view the property we plan to buy?

A.

Homeward Legal strongly recommend that home buyers in Bakewell arrange a RICS surveyor to undertake a survey if buying in Bakewell. There are a wide range of problems which will impact a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address, such as cracks in walls and roof damage.

Q.

The owner has unfortunately added roof antenna on the building in Bakewell which we think might exclude nearby conservation area criteria

A.

Your property solicitor will always identify if the property is affected by a conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have the required permission from the Derbyshire Dales planning authority.

Q.

Conveyancing searches are surmised archived data but when one considers recent events such as the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands, are they sufficient to see enough about the Bakewell area flood risk?

A.

Conveyancing searches carried out by a Bakewell lawyer will include the far more specialist flood search if required.

If you are nervous you could contact a neighbour of the property.
