Q.

How do we get affordable conveyancing in Bridgnorth?

A.

Both high-street and online property lawyers purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra charges are often hiding in the terms and conditions which homeowners may have not read carefully Any additional charges listed in terms and conditions needs to be clearly defined. They only apply in cases where the solicitor must perform additional tasks , 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.

As a consequence of the widespread flooding in 2012 in the Midlands we are wondering if conveyancing and environmental searches might not be sufficient?

A.

A thorough Bridgnorth property lawyer will suggest that you get additional environmental searches if the first conveyancing searches flag up a risk of flooding in Bridgnorth.

Sometimes buyers speak to a future neighbour to get further local information.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if we are buying in Bridgnorth?

A.

Some owners in Bridgnorth can be required to contribute towards maintenance of local churches. As a result of the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land in Bridgnorth must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Bridgnorth church properties include St James Hall Church, St Mary Magdalene and Tuckhill Holy Innocents.

Q.

I am buying a chapel in Longford. Should we get a chancel search?

A.

Your property lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered. Chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the current owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

Bridgnorth property solicitors apply for necessary conveyancing searches when they are acting for a home buyer - what particular searches?

A.

If purchasing and obtaining a mortgage a mortgage lender will expect at least a specified set of searches, including the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environment Search, as well as any specific local searches, which may include a Planning Search.

Q.

We are buying a property with Halifax - what will we need to consider?

A.

Some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, potentially creating increased legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal, however, will act for all major mortgage lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay the lender's legal fees.

Q.

Do your property lawyers manage property auction conveyancing in Bridgnorth?

A.

Yes - our property solicitors frequently do the legal work for auction buyers and sellers. Our specialist lawyers have previously acted for many successful bidders at national and local residential property auctions that include Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Sensible bidders will formally appoint a Bridgnorth property conveyancing lawyer asap to allow time for a review of the auction legal papers in advance of the property auction date.

Immediately following the day of bidding your lawyer is fully able to concentrate on completing the legal work inside the limited time as conventionally required .

Q.

What can a Bridgnorth property solicitor recommend if the home we hope to invest in is inside a Shropshire planning authority conservation area which appears to have unsuitable roof aerials installed?

A.

Shropshire council search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) carried out by a solicitor during the legal process should check whether the property is within a conservation area and any evidence of permission for additions to the property will be asked for. In the event that no local authority consents be available your solicitor will give you professional advice on all options which can include seeking an indemnity insurance or getting retrospective permission from Shropshire planning authority.
