Moving into a property in the area? Helpful regional transport and public service facts and figures ;

Blaby's closest train station is South Wigston and Blaby's nearest airport is East Midlands Airport (19 miles). Coventry Airport is 19 miles, and Tollerton Airport is 24 miles away.

Blaby is nearby at under 2m of the M1 junction entry 21 Southbound.

London Road Private Leicester is a nearby hospital.

Q.

How do I find fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this topic catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra costs are often hiding in the small print. Excited property buyers and sellers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct.

Q.

Is Blaby soil likely to remain contaminated by vanadium?

A.

Blaby and the surrounding region has a legacy of chemical contamination. Other sources of contaminated land include polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs) and groundwater contaminants like bleach.

Q.

Are there many conservation areas in the area?

A.

Conservation areas detail areas of architectural or historic interest. Living in a conservation area can mean an increase in local property values, but the restrictions can result in the buyer inheriting liability of unauthorised changes. A lawyer will confirm potential liability for unauthorised works.

Q.

Of major Blaby lenders, who is on your panel?

A.

The Homeward Legal group have worked with the majority of lenders financing Blaby purchasers. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Barclays Bank PLC, Barclays Bank Plc, Leicester, LE87 2BB.

Q.

Can we avoid paying out for stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

Homeward Legal do not recommend any stamp duty mitigation scheme. These schemes are highly expensive and unreliable. There have been a small number of government-sponsored schemes, on the other hand, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'.

Q.

I am intending to purchase a property in the parish of Norton juxta Twycross. Do we need a chancel search?

A.

A Blaby conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is taken out. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will continue to be free from liability, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

I have requested a quote from you. May there be any additional costs?

A.

Homeward Legal's solicitors never charge any hidden costs for sale or purchase conveyancing. Your quote for conveyancing in Blaby is an single, accurate fee the legal costs for your transaction.

Q.

For fast conveyancing on the purchase of a £646,000 property, what can we do to accelerate the process?

A.

Essential to a fast completion is to use a communicative lawyer. You should consider:

  • Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication?
  • Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote?
  • Do they offer 'no move, no fee' protection? This can incentivise a faster transaction.
