Q.

We need the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Biggleswade. What are the risks?

This catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra costs may inflate the solicitor's invoice. Any extra fees needs to be reasonable. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

We are buying a property where the seller looks to have added ill-suited dormer windows to the house which we think may exclude Greasborough Urban conservation area criteria.

A.

A solicitor is required to find out if your new home is affected by a conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have the required permissions from the local planning authority.

In the absence of any appropriate consents the solicitor will advise you of all options, which include seeking from Central Bedfordshire council or buying an indemnity policy.

Q.

We have a found a property to buy. How do we aim for a fast exchange and completion?

A.

Key to fast conveyancing is to use a proactive solicitor. There are various jobs you could do to speed up the legal work, including, replying to your solicitor by phone, fax or email, confirming your mortgage offer and contacting your solicitor regularly.

Q.

My lender is Holmesdale Building Society, is there anything we need to check?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. Homeward Legal can act for all major lenders in the UK.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Biggleswade?

A.

Biggleswade is located in Central Bedfordshire Council, Priory House, Monks Walk, Chicksands, Bedfordshire, SG17 5TQ, contact: 0300 300 8000

Q.

I have read about the fact that last year was second wettest year since on record, I am wondering if flood risk searches aren't thorough enough?

A.

Flood searches handled by the conveyancing solicitor in Biggleswade should also include a more detailed flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are concerned you can approach a local resident or local Bedfordshire flood damage builder - e.g. Geoff Hill, 25 Boot Lane, Dunton, Biggleswade, SG18 8RP Tel: 01767 318977.

Q.

In a few months we are going to move out of our terraced home in Biggleswade into a building in Bedford , what is the optimum stage to book a removals firm?

A.

Most lawyers tend to encourage home sellers wait until such time as exchange of contracts as an agreed date wont have been contractually agreed.

Commonly house removals firms will levy a cancellation payment . Why not try Clark & Rose Ltd, 14 Eldon Way, Biggleswade, SG18 8NH Phone: 01767 312869 or A J Removal Services, Unit 19 Eldon Way, Biggleswade, SG18 8NH Tel: 01767 600790.

Q.

We are intending to buy an extended property in a designated Biggleswade conservation area, how do I find information in respect of the state of repair?

A.

Local Biggleswade conservation areas are created by Central Bedfordshire who administer conservation area concerns from the upkeep of public spaces to the thwarting of rundown streets. English Heritage, a government body, have produced records of the condition of conservation areas in Biggleswade and throughout England.
