Q.

I need to find a solicitor that offers cheap conveyancing in Barnstaple. What should I check?

A.

Several firms promote cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. This small print is often not read by homeowners in a hurry.

Q.

We plan to purchase a house in East Stonehouse. Should we get a chancel search?

A.

A property lawyer could recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the house being purchased is found. In older areas of Barnstaple, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on new owners of a house where church councils have previously chosen not to do so. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

In the next month we are going to be moving out of our period building near Barnstaple into a bigger dwelling in Torquay what is the optimum stage to appoint a removals firm?

A.

Your solicitor would tend to recommend that buyers and sellers wait until such time as exchange of contracts as in advance of this commonly a date will not have been confirmed. Commonly home removals firms charge a rearrangement penalty . Try Btstorage.co.uk, Bishops Tawton, Barnstaple, EX32 0EA Telephone: 01271 831003 or Craig Man & Van, Dairy Cottage/West Kerscott, Swimbridge, Barnstaple, EX32 0QA on 07788 997603.

Q.

Is a managing agent fee a disbursement or a fee?

A quote should clearly state all disbursements and fees. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in a quote.

Q.

Do your property lawyers administer the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Barnstaple?

A.

Yes - Homeward Legal is very capable working with buyers at auction. Our lawyers have been instructed by countless successful bidders at regional residential property auctions that include Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Normally more complicated to convey lots like development land are purchased at auction which require further due diligence before completion. Conveyancers therefore recommend bidders to choose a CQS property lawyer well before the actual auction for a full review of the lot.

Subsequently, following the day of bidding your lawyer is able to concentrate on finishing the legal work in the limited time frame as required .

Q.

Do I need to get a home surveyor to investigate the property purchase?

A.

It is suggested that purchasers in Barnstaple book a house surveyor to undertake a survey. A range defects can affect a property, for example unsafe chimney circulation or roof spread, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

How is contaminated land in Barnstaple checked when buying a property?

A.

A range of contaminants could irreparably damage Barnstaple property, like petroleum and fuel sites. An environmental search will give more information. Whitehills Plantation, Filleigh, Devon, EX32 0RW may be one Barnstaple source of contamination.

Q.

Will you need to get searches for chancel liability? I am purchasing a Barnstaple apartment on the same street as a church.

A.

There are over 15,000 ecclesiastical parishes across the UK. Owners of property within some of these may be required to contribute towards the cost of the repair of a local church. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including local maps. Churches in this area include Holy Trinity, Saint Peter and Saint Mary Magdalene, St John the Baptist and St Paul, Sticklepath with Roundswell.
