Q.

How do we find fixed rate conveyancing in Bidford On Avon?

A.

This affects many buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many solicitors offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra charges will be included in small print. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Costs which are listed in the terms should be fair and clearly defined. They come into force only if the conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

How much would our searches cost?

A.

Conveyancing searches ranges in cost. More uncommon searches include a British waterways search.

Q.

Should we be concerned about gazumping?

A.

Gazumping describes circumstances where a house seller acknowledges a buyer's offer, only to dismiss it, opting for another buyer's offer. Although being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a risk. You should instruct a law firm as soon as possible to reduce the chance of gazumping.

Q.

What type of local authority searches as respects the risk of a flood around Warwickshire will my property lawyer in Bidford On Avon actually apply for?

A conveyancer will apply for conveyancing searches that should include Bidford On Avon area flood risk data.

Q.

Do you need to get a chancel search? I am buying a Bidford On Avon property near a parson's close.

A.

The Law Lords decision in a landmark case 10 years ago confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Bidford On Avon Parochial Church Council enforce liability.

Q.

If Bidford On Avon a contaminated plot is found in an environmental search, can we have the topsoil remedied?

A.

Some degree of remediation is possible is some cases, but it can be costly. Speak to Q Lawns In The Midlands, 41 Grafton La, Bidford-On-Avon, Alcester, B50 4DX for additional information.

Q.

As a consequence of the extensive flooding last year in the Midlands I am concerned that conveyancing and environmental searches may not be detailed enough?

A.

Flood risk searches applied for by your lawyer in Bidford On Avon should include the more thorough search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

It could be worth trying to get in touch with a close neighbour for some further comfort.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if I am buying in the parish of Ansty, near Bidford On Avon?

A.

Regardless of the Bidford On Avon parish you are buying in, the conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. Through some church councils have exercised their right to impose chancel repairs on the owners of lay rectorships, there is no guarantee that a parish which has not imposed liability will continue to be free from liability. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.
