Do fixtures and fittings include things like sideboards?
There is not a absolute definition of fixtures and fittings, potentially leading to anger after a sale completes and some items which the buyer assumed would be left behind are taken by the sellers when they move out. For many transactions, this is overlooked, making the approval of the list of fixtures and fittings essential.
Are Braintree any conservation areas going to constrain us?
These areas delineate areas recognised as being of historical merit. Town Centre and Bradford Street, Sible Hedingham South (Swan Street) and Silver End are among the conservation areas in Braintree.

For fast legal work on the purchase of a £486,000 residence, what do we need to get?
Primarily, fast Braintree conveyancing is the key to is to use a proactive, diligent solicitor. When choosing a solicitor, you should ask the following: Do they use email? Do they offer 'no move, no fee' protection? This can incentivise a faster transaction. Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote?
Do we need to select the law firm referred by the estate agent?
The Braintree agent may refer a conveyancer. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.
