Q.

How do I get affordable conveyancing in Bramford?

A.

Many online and high street firms purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms, left unregarded by busy buyers and sellers Any additional costs included in terms and conditions needs to be fair and reasonable. They only come into force where your solicitor must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

If we plan to buy near Bramford, in the parish of Gisleham, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Whichever Bramford parish in which you are buying, a lawyer is likely to recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair can be imposed on current owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

Which Bramford mortgage lenders do you work with?

A.

The Homeward Legal partnership can work with the majority of lenders listed with the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Bramford, such as Direct Mortgages Consortium Ltd, 2 Great Colman St, Ipswich, IP4 2AD, Ipswich Mortgage Centre, 7 Great Colman St, Ipswich, IP4 2AA, and Robinson Derek Associates Ltd, Po Box 540, Ipswich, IP2 0ZA.

Q.

Does the conveyancer in Bramford advise on the risk and history of possible flooding in the Bramford area?

A.

Q.

Will the property report prepared by the Bramford conveyancing solicitor provide details about the rates of the council tax for a Band C apartment before completing on the purchase?

A.

Your property solicitor will consult with the Ipswich local council to ascertain the correct council tax band and rates, which should subsequently be included in the title report.

Council tax rates for properties in Bramford are detailed at the Ipswich local authority site. As of 02 January 2013 the different rates are:

Q.

We are buying in Bramford. Are there many areas of conservation in the area?

A.

Locales deemed to be of 'special architectural and historic interest', such as mining villages, will be recorded as conservation areas. A property solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area and be able to offer more information for conservation areas in Bramford.

Q.

Do I need to instruct the solicitors firm suggested by our estate agent?

A.

The agent will often suggest one or more conveyancing firms. Such referrals must be carefully considered, as an agent may select the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

How can I protect against being gazumped?

A.

Gazumping happens when a seller accepts an offer, only to later reject it in favour of another buyer's offer. It may happen weeks into a sale. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a danger of gazumping. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing your property solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer.
