Do we need to get a home buyers survey?
We strongly advise that buyers instruct a RICS surveyor if you are intending to buy in Bingham. There are a wide range of issues which can affect a property. These include flat roof leaks or poor drainage.
What can affect land in Bingham, and will they be checked for thoroughly?
Property in Bingham could be contaminated by a wide range of naturally-occurring factors, and an environmental search will confirm that a specific property can be impacted by local contaminants including a proximate telecommunications base station.
What length of time does it take my conveyancing solicitor to get through all of the conveyancing formalities on a terraced fifties house we are intending to buy?
Completion can take anywhere from 1 month to 3 months, which can be hampered by various things, such as the efficiency of the sellers solicitor, or whether there are any linked sales.
Our chosen solicitors are notably results-focused with the goal of completing as promptly as possible.
Is an online ID fee a fee or a disbursement?
Unscrupulous firms hide additional costs as disbursements. It is not always obvious whether a cost is a fee or not, and if it should be included. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in your quote.
How long does it take to move house?
Those new to buying property are often surprised by how long the process can take from start to finish. There are several factors that come into play when determining how long your transaction will take from having your offer accepted to moving into your new home: The number of people involved in the chain (the shorter it is, the easier to manage and therefore shorter in duration potentially), problems with one or more buyers in the chain getting a mortgage offer, communication, management and many others.
The greatest time that needs to be set aside is for the conveyancing, which is the complex legal process of transferring ownership of the property from seller to buyer, replicated along the entire chain. Typically, the conveyancing can take an average of between eight and twelve weeks to complete, so, in reality, you should be thinking in terms of months.
However, if you appoint a results-focused and proactive solicitor, who will do everything possible to reduce the length of time, including talking to everyone involved in the chain, pushing for swift return of forms and documentation, and using modern technology to drive the process forward, you will stand a better chance of the conveyancing being a lot shorter. And the earlier you appoint them, the quicker they can get started on your transaction.

Where can I check out if the Bingham conservation area is in a poor state?
Conservation areas are specified by the local authority (Rushcliffe) who govern the state of the area including things like poorly maintained public spaces, the painting of houses and area development. Following a campaign, English Heritage have put together records of the state of repair of conservation areas in England.
Can I change the purpose of use for a purchase as part of the conveyancing procedure?
Putting in a planning request to change the use of part or all of a property is a straightforward process and you can deal directly with the local authority, which authorises plans and requests. However, tying it in with a planned purchase of a property has its own problems, since you don’t yet formally own the property, and the length of time to get through the planning process (with no guarantee of success) will need to be factored into the purchase duration, which the seller may not agree to.
We would advise you to either buy the property and then put in the planning request after completion (or exchange at the very earliest), or buy a property that’s already fit for your purposes. Or you might be lucky to find a property that already has the relevant planning consents in place.
