Q.

What are the best rates for conveyancing for a £685,000 home?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many property lawyers offer cheap conveyancing. However additional costs are frequently hidden in the terms. Fees should be fair. They be applicable if the lawyer is required to complete extra work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

Botley lawyers get necessary searches when acting for a buyer, but which specific searches?

A.

If getting a mortgage a mortgage lender mandates at least - Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental and occasionally area-specific searches, like a Planning.

Q.

Do we need to get a property survey for this property purchase?

A.

It is firmly advised that you instruct a RICS surveyor. There can be a wide range of concerns which affect a property, which a conveyancing solicitor will not report on, including insect infestation or subsidence.

Q.

Does your firm get involved in the conveyancing of auction properties in Botley?

A.

Our company is familiar with bidders at auction. Typically hard to value homes for example where located in disadvantaged or undesirable areas are purchased at auction and these need increased investigation before completing. We therefore strongly recommend auction buyers to choose a conveyancing lawyer before the date of the auction to allow for a review of the legal papers.

Immediately following the auction day arrives your experienced lawyer is ready for finishing the transaction inside 28 days as conventionally required .

Q.

The estate agent has referred a solicitors firm. Must we use this solicitor?

A.

Estate agent recommendations are a common practice way for home buyers to find a solicitor. Such referrals should be considered carefully, as some agents may 'recommend' the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

If we are buying in the parish of Stoke Talmage, should we order a chancel search?

A.

A conveyancing lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. Chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on owners of a property where church councils have previously chosen not to do so. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

If Botley land is found to be contaminated, can the soil be inexpensively remediated?

A.

Remediation is often feasible, though expensive. A local specialist such as Hack J R, 3 Maddoxford Way, Botley, Southampton, SO32 2DW may be able to provide additional information.

Q.

What do conveyancing searches refer to?

A.

Searches are enquiries ordered by the purchaser's solicitor, such as a chancel search, and only deal with issues with the property's title.
