Q.

How do we find fixed rate conveyancing in Binfield?

A.

Many online and high street solicitors promote theoretically cheap conveyancing. Often additional fees may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement. Additional costs listed in the solicitor's terms needs to be fair. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

Should the fixtures and fittings form include things such as sideboards?

A.

Property buyers are frequently confused by the lack of detail regarding fixtures and fittings. A fixtures and fittings form can avoid any disputes and will confirm what will be sold with the property.

Q.

What does the Binfield property lawyer advise if the property we are buying is in a Bracknell Forest conservation area which appears to have incongruous doors fitted?

A.

The local authority enquiries carried out by the solicitor during the conveyancing process will check if the property is in a designated conservation area and evidence of formal approval for changes to the property will be supplied. If no necessary permissions be available the solicitor will recommend the options which

may include seeking an indemnity insurance policy or requesting retrospective permission from Bracknell Forest planning authority.

Q.

Which body is obliged for policing the standard of the conservation areas in Binfield?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, keep a list of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in Binfield and across England.

Local Binfield conservation areas are designated by the local authority (Bracknell Forest) who oversee the state of the area including things like new developments, removal of front gardens for parking and street furniture.

Q.

Oakwood Homeloans is our mortgage lender - is there anything I need to consider?

A.

Some lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel', resulting in increased conveyancing costs for buyers if a second conveyancer is required by their lender. Homeward Legal are able to act on behalf of all large lenders in the UK, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

As a consequence of the fact that an estimated 2 8m people are at risk from surface flooding I am thinking that property environmental searches may not be sufficient?

A.

A diligent conveyancing solicitor in Binfield should get additional conveyancing searches from Landmark if the initial search establishes a any kind of Binfield flood risk.

It may be prudent to contact a neighbour or local resident for that added local information.
