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.

Our agent has referred a lawyer. Will it be cheaper to instruct this firm?

A.

An agent may suggest a conveyancer. These referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as the agent may recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

Is a stock transfer form fee passed on at cost?

A.

Disbursements and fees ought to be identified on the quote for your conveyancing. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your quote.

Q.

If I am buying in the parish of Weston Underwood, will we need a chancel search?

Your Bletchley conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search. In Bletchley's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on new owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

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.

A.

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 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.

We are purchasing in Bletchley, and need to know if there are any conservation areas.

A.

Parts of Bletchley considered be of special architectural or historic interest, like historic transport links, may be recorded as areas of conservation. You may wish to contact the local council if you have specific questions, but your lawyer will investigate this in detail during the conveyancing process.
