Q.

I need low cost conveyancing in Bracknell. What are the risks?

A.

This catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional costs are often hiding in the small print, left unread by preoccupied buyers and sellers A quote should, in addition, define applicable disbursements.

Q.

Can tin (Sn) contaminate Bracknell top-soil?

A.

Soil contamination is carefully monitored. Data on many contaminants, such as asbestos and water contaminants such as detergents, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Which environmental factors will affect land in Bracknell?

A.

Property would be contaminated by a broad range of environmental factors, such as sand or clay quarries. An environmental search can give more clarity.

Q.

Will the house's fixtures and fittings list things such as external light fixtures?

A.

Chiefly, fixtures are fixed elements, such as plugs and sockets to floors, walls and ceilings and fixtures are free-standing. The seller and purchaser may unwittingly have completely different views on which items will be sold with the property; this can make the clarification of any difference of opinion so important.

Q.

My local agent has named the law firm whom they usually use. Should I use this solicitor?

A.

It is common practice for agents to endorse a conveyancing firm. Such referrals should be considered carefully, as an agent may select the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

I am hoping to be finally moving out of our semi detached property in Bracknell to our new house in Woodley , what is the optimum stage to instruct a home removal firm?

A.

Homeward Legal tend to advise that home movers wait arranging removals until such time as formal exchange of contracts has occurred as an agreed date will not have been fixed. As a rule house removals companies might charge a re booking payment .
