Q.

How do I find affordable conveyancing in Beaminster?

A.

Numerous firms claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional charges may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement which unwary buyers fail to check. Any charges listed in terms of engagement needs to be reasonable and clear. They only come into force where the conveyancer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A quote should also clearly state any disbursements.

Q.

Northern Rock will be our lender - what do we need to know?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel. This can mean increased legal costs for purchasers. We will act for most mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Which environmental factors will contaminate land in Beaminster, and will they be thoroughly investigated?

A.

Residential property can be contaminated by many human activities, and factors including sand or gravel pits will be detailed in an appropriate search. Closed, Clandon Hill, DT8 3PT may be one Beaminster source of contamination.

Q.

If I am buying a Beaminster maisonette near land owned by the church, will I need a chancel search?

A.

In Beaminster, some owners can be required to subsidise repairs to specific local church buildings. As a consequence of

a recent Act, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. Your solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Beaminster church lands include St Mary of the Annunciation.

Q.

We plan to purchase a medieval barn conversion in Winterbourne Came. Will it be necessary to get a chancel search?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search is taken out, regardless of the parish in which the residence being purchased is located. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have decided to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not be so in future. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
