Q.

I need to find a law firm that offers cheap conveyancing in Basildon. What do we need to consider?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra costs are frequently hidden in the terms.

Q.

Do I need a property surveyor to inspect our home purchase?

A.

We advise that home buyers arrange a surveyor to undertake a survey. Buyers should be aware that there are a wide range of issues which will impact a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address, such as failed double glazing.

Q.

As a consequence of the extensive flooding in the UK in April 2012 we are asking if property conveyancing searches aren't thorough enough?

A.

Environmental searches applied for by the Basildon conveyancing solicitor will include the far more informative flood search if it is felt necessary.

If you are still nervous you might try to contact a next door neighbour.

Q.

What factors can contaminate land in Basildon. Are they an issue?

A.

Land in Basildon will be contaminated by a wide range of factors caused by man and by nature, and factors like proximity to scrap yards

and air pollution will be reported on in environmental search results. Pitsea Hall Lane, Pitsea, SS16 4UH is a source of potential local contamination in Basildon.

Q.

What are fixtures and fittings?

A.

In general, there is not a clear definition of fixtures and fittings. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction, and which makes a fixtures and fittings form so necessary.

Q.

Will a solicitor in Basildon order any searches on the Essex Edwardian mid terrace building I want to buy?

A.

The standard legal protocol is to get Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environmental as well as any less common searches, which may include a Land Charges Search (K15).

Q.

Is your panel of solicitors set up to complete fast the conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Basildon?

A.

Our solicitors and licensed conveyancers in Basildon regularly get instructed by buyers at auction. Our panel of lawyers have acted for countless bidders at local 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.

Shrewd buyers tend to choose a suitable conveyancing solicitor asap to allow for a thorough review. in advance of the actual auction. Post actual auction your Homeward Legal property lawyer is thoroughly ready for finishing the transaction within a month as usually required .

Q.

If I plan to purchase in the parish of Kedington, should we order a chancel search?

A.

The conveyancing lawyer may suggest a chancel search, irrespective of the parish in which the home being purchased is located. In Basildon's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on current owners of a home where parish councils have previously chosen not to do so, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.
