Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £728k property?

A.

Several firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing, but extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any extra fees listed in terms of engagement should be reasonable and be applicable if your solicitor must complete work beyond standard conveyancing for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

A.

An experienced property solicitor will carry out standard environmental searches that incorporate Braintree historical flood risk data.

Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if I am buying in the parish of Colchester St Botolph?

A.

A conveyancer is likely to recommend a chancel search. Through some church councils have decided to charge chancel repairs on the owners, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not continue to be so. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Will the Braintree lawyer carry out any searches on the Essex period semi-detached flat I am purchasing

A.

The conventional procedure is to get the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environment Search as well as any area-specific searches for example Index Map Search (SIM).

Q.

Can Braintree brownfield site topsoil still be contaminated?

A.

Data on other contaminants, like polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs) and water contaminants such as hydrocarbons, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

For fast legal work on the purchase of a £486,000 residence, what do we need to get?

A.

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?
