Q.

How do I get a cheap solicitor for buying a property?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many law firms purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional costs may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement. The conveyancing quote should list third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.

Q.

I am intending to purchase a restored chapel in the parish of St Albans St Michael. Are we advised to get a chancel search?

A.

A lawyer is likely to recommend a chancel search. In Buntingford's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on new owners of a building where parish councils have previously chosen not to do so, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

How is Buntingford contaminated land checked?

A.

Land may have been contaminated by numerous naturally-occurring factors, and an environmental search will confirm that a property may be affected by contaminants in the region including petroleum and fuel sites and nearby waste management facilities.

Q.

What does 'gazumping' actually mean?

A.

Gazumping describes when a home owner acknowledges an offer, then rejects it, choosing instead a better offer. It may happen weeks into a purchase. There is almost always a risk of being gazumped. Consider instructing an efficient solicitor early to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.

Q.

As a consequence of the fact that last year was second wettest year since records began I am wondering whether environmental searches won't be detailed enough?

A.

Sometimes home buyers to also contact a local resident to get further local history or nearby Hertfordshire flooding repair expert such as: F C B Building & Decorating, 119 Monks Walk, Buntingford, SG9 9DS Tel: 01763 271964.

Q.

Would you advise that I get a chancel search if I am buying in Buntingford?

A.

Where land in Buntingford was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards upkeep of a medieval church. Following a change in the law, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further. Church lands in the area where chancel liability may apply include St Peter.
