Q.

What are the best rates for conveyancing for a 612,000 property?

A.

Many property lawyers promote supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Extra fees ought to be fair and reasonable. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We are buying in Brentwood. Can we verify if the house is in a conservation area?

A.

These areas safeguard local areas of historical merit. You may wish to contact the local council for more detail, but your solicitor will investigate the impact of conservation areas or other planning restrictions.

Q.

Which factors help with organising fast conveyancing?

A.

As is widely reported, faster conveyancing is the key to instruct a experienced solicitor. Beyond that, there are several tasks you, as the purchaser, can do to accelerate the process, including, asking for property searches to be ordered immediately, answering any queries raised by the solicitor as soon as possible and getting your mortgage offer in place.

Q.

Might the conveyancing fees in Brentwood conceal any additional charges?

A.

Our solicitors will never charge any additional charges to buy or sell a home in Brentwood. Some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. The final bill you receive may be much more.

Q.

What kind of research about the risk of floods in the Essex region will my conveyancing solicitor in Brentwood check?

A.

A vital part of the legal due diligence procedure involves a conveyancing lawyer applying for conveyancing and environmental searches that provide information about the potential Brentwood flood risk.

Q.

We plan to purchase a church rectory in Wormingford. Will a chancel search be specified?

A.

A conveyancing lawyer may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. In older areas of Brentwood, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the owners of a building where parish councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

I am planning on buying a period investment flat in a Brentwood conservation area, how do we uncover data concerning the state of repair of the area?

A.

Local conservation areas are designated by the local authority (Brentwood) who police conservation area concerns from whether trees can be cut down to the halting of neglected buildings. English Heritage, a government body, maintain a list of the state of conservation areas.

Q.

We are buying on a brownfield site. Is lithium (Li) soil contamination likely?

A.

There are legislative rules in place to stop future soil contamination. Other sources of contaminated land include groundwater contaminants like hydrocarbons and organohalides.
