Q.

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

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.

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.

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.

Q.

Is it advisable that I get a chancel search? I am buying in Basildon.

A.

There are over 15,000 ecclesiastical parishes in England and Wales. Property owners within some of these may be required to pay for the repair of a local church. Some names or words such as 'Glebe Farm' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Basildon ecclesiastical properties where chancel liability may apply include Holy Cross, St Andrew and St Martin of Tours.

Q.

Is soil in Basildon contaminated by cadmium (Cd)?

A.

Though the dangers are usually minor, an plot will be marked as 'contaminated land' if the risk to human life is unacceptable. Data on many contaminants, such as food-processing waste, will be included in an environmental search.
