Buying or selling a home in the area? Useful nearby public transport and services information -

The closest train station to Bletchley is Bletchley, about a mile away. Bletchley's closest airport is Turweston Aerodrome Airport (15 miles). Luton Airport is 19 miles and away.

The most convenient hospital is Saxon Clinic, Milton Keynes.

Q.

We are trying to find an affordable Bletchley conveyancing estimate. What do we need to check for?

A.

Numerous solicitors claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Do we need to get a surveyor to investigate our house purchase in Bletchley?

A.

We recommend that home buyers in Bletchley arrange a RICS survey when you plan to buy in Bletchley. Buyers should be aware that there are a wide range of defects which affect a property, that will not be addressed during the conveyancing process. These include roof spread and ground movement.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Bletchley?

A.

Bletchley is located in Milton Keynes Council, Civic Offices, 1 Saxon Gate East, Milton Keynes, MK9 3HQ, contact: 01908 691 691

Q.

Is it advisable that I get searches for chancel liability? We are buying a Bletchley residence close by a church constructed around the 12th Century.

Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Bletchley property likely to be affected. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. A solicitor will be able to advise further. Bletchley church properties include Fenny Stratford St Martin, St Mary, Water Eaton St Frideswide and Whaddon Way Church.

Q.

How many weeks does it take the conveyancer to accomplish the legal formalities on a maisonette in a Victorian house we are buying?

A.

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere between 3 weeks and 12 weeks, based on any number of factors such as the speed of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or the completeness of the management information.

Our highly conveyancing solicitors are notably proactive with the aim of completing the legal process as soon as achievable.

Q.

How is Bletchley contaminated land identified during conveyancing?

A.

Residential property in Bletchley could be contaminated by many environmental factors. Contaminants like proximity to scrap yards will be considered as part of the environmental searches. Bletchley Landfill Site, Drayton Road, Buckinghamshire, MK3 5JU, for example, may be a source of local contamination.

Q.

As a result of the statistics that 1 4m people are at risk coastal or river flooding I am concerned that flood risk searches won't be sufficient?

A.

Environmental searches handled by your conveyancing solicitor in Bletchley should also include a more informative search (Landmark) if required.

If you remain still concerned you can always call a neighbour.

Q.

I have requested a quote from you. Might we be charged any hidden costs after the move?

A.

No. Homeward Legal's solicitors will never charge any hidden extra fees. You should be aware that some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, which they will not be required to adhere to.
