Handy local Burford transport and services information

Shipton train station is about 4 miles from Burford. The closest airport to Burford is Kidlington, Oxford Airport (14 miles). Kidlington Airport is 15 miles and Gloucester Airport is 23 miles away.

Witney is the most convenient hospital.

Q.

I need to find a cheap Burford solicitor to sell a residence. What do we need to consider?

A.

Many property lawyers promote so-called cheap conveyancing. Often additional fees are often hiding in the small print. A conveyancing quote should list any disbursements.

Q.

Is the Stamp Duty Land Tax fee a fee or disbursement?

A.

It may not be obvious whether an itemised charge is a fee or a disbursement. This charge is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a quote.

Q.

Is a Homebuyer Report required if we are purchasing property in Burford?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors heavily advise that all buyers in Burford book a building survey. Numerous defects will impact a property, for example poor ventilation and ground movement. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

What length of time should it take our assigned lawyer to conclude the conveyancing formalities on a terraced forties house we want to buy?

A.

The legal process can take anywhere between one month and three months, which can be hampered by various issues for example the efficiency of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or renegotiations.

Homeward Legal's lawyers are very focused on pushing transactions through with the intention of exchanging in as short a time as we possibly can.

Q.

Are you geared up for 28 day completions on residential property auction conveyancing in Burford?

A.

Our team prepare legal packs for vendors and regularly work for buyers at auction. It is prudent to select a solicitors practice as early as possible so there is time for a title report of the auction legal pack before the day of the auction.

Subsequently, following the auction your conveyancing lawyer will be ready for completing the conveyancing in the limited time frame as usually required by the auction conditions.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Burford?

A.

Burford is located in West Oxfordshire Council, Elmfield, New Yatt Road, Witney, OX28 1PB Tel: 01993 861420

Q.

What does the Burford property solicitor advise if the building I hope to purchase is within a West Oxfordshire council conservation area which has inappropriate new windows added?

A.

West Oxfordshire planning authority LLC1 searches carried out by a solicitor in the process of the conveyancing will confirm whether the property is in a conservation area and evidence of planning authority consent for alterations will be supplied.

Q.

Do you recommend that I get a chancel liability search? We are purchasing near a 16th Century 'parson's close' in Burford.

A.

Property owners in Burford may be subject to chancel repair liability. As a result of the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Ecclesiastical properties in Burford where a chancel search may be appropriate include Asthall St Nicholas, St John the Baptist and St Mary.
