Q.

I need a firm that offers cheap conveyancing in Batley. Can you assist?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many property buyers and sellers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many property lawyers advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional charges are frequently hidden in the terms.

Q.

To complete on our freehold property purchase ASAP, can we aim for fast conveyancing?

A.

Primarily, contacting a proactive and experienced conveyancer is essential to moving faster. Consider the following:

  • Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
  • Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
  • Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?

Q.

I am intending to buy in Batley. How can we check that the property is in a conservation area?

These areas delineate regions defined as being of 'special architectural and historic interest'. The property solicitor handling your purchase can advise further and confirm potential liability for unauthorised works.

Q.

We are intending to purchase a home in the parish of Bardsey. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

The conveyancer could advise a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the property being purchased is located. In Batley's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on new owners of a property where parish councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. For property in the parish of Bardsey, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Will I need a building surveyor to check for issues affecting our Batley property purchase?

A.

We recommend that most purchasers order a property survey when you intend to buy in Batley. It is a fact that there are a wide range of concerns which can affect a property, including settlement, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

Which factors will contaminate land in Batley. Are these properly investigated?

A.

Property in Batley can be contaminated by a wide range of factors caused by man and by nature, and an environmental search should clarify to what extent a particular property may be impacted by contaminants including air pollution and landfill sites.

Q.

When buying a 1930s house in one of the conservation areas, how do we locate details on the standard of repair of the area?

A.

Conservation areas in Batley are nominated by Kirklees who preside over everything from whether trees can be cut down to the prohibition of poorly maintained roads. English Heritage have conducted a survey and created records of the condition of conservation areas.

Q.

I have read about handling the legal work when buying and selling a flat - Is it a smart move to enact the all of the legal work ourselves?

A.

Conceivably there is absolutely no argument why you cant adopt a DIY approach and complete the legal work without assistance. In reality however, a property solicitor handles a huge array of actions e.g. checking contracts or interpreting planning contraventions most of which require training.
