Q.

How do we get the best rates for conveyancing for a £83,000 home?

The lack of clarity surrounding this matter catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms promote cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra charges are frequently hidden in the small print, left unread by preoccupied buyers Any charges which are listed in the solicitor's terms ought to be reasonable and clear.

Q.

Halifax is our mortgage lender - is there anything I need to be aware of?

A.

Purchasers should be aware that, in some cases, lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, which may result in greater conveyancing costs for property buyers. Homeward Legal will act for the vast majority of mortgage lenders so that you will not be required to pay an additional fee for your lender's solicitor.

Q.

How can the conveyancer in Borrowash advise us on the potential risk of flooding in the Borrowash area?

A.

A conveyancer will carry out property environmental searches that should include Borrowash area flood risk data. A more detailed search (most likely a Landmark Database search) might be advised by

your Borrowash solicitor if the results of the initial searches highlight a potential flood risk to the property.

Q.

We are intending to purchase a barn conversion in the parish of Church Broughton. Will it be necessary to get a chancel search?

A.

Whichever Borrowash parish you are purchasing in, a conveyancing lawyer might recommend a chancel search. In older areas of Borrowash, chancel repair can be imposed on current owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

For a fast completion to buy a £793,000 property, what can we do to speed up the transaction?

A.

Instructing a communicative solicitor is essential to faster conveyancing. There are numerous things you can do. These include:

  • keeping in regular contact with the solicitor
  • promptly answering your solicitor's questions (by email if possible)
  • if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can

Q.

The home in Borrowash being bought is on a ex-industrial use land. Is the topsoil likely to be contaminated by waste minerals like antimony?

A.

Given the region's industrial and agricultural history in parts of Borrowash, soil contamination is impossible to completely avoid. Metal contamination of soil in Borrowash is more likely to occur near waste treatment sites. Data on other contaminants, like water contaminants such as bleach, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Should we have a contingency plan for gazumping?

A.

The practice of choosing to reject an accepted offer on a home after a new buyer makes a more attractive offer is called gazumping. Though gazumping is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a risk. Instructing a law firm as soon as you can is a key first step to reducing this risk.
