Q.

How do I get the best rates for conveyancing in Burnham for a £772,000 residence?

A.

Many homeowners seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates. Many solicitors promote supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs may increase the solicitor's invoice. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

When should I speak to a solicitor in Burnham?

A.

Generally, the sooner the better. The legal work can then start very early in the process. Instructing a conveyancing firm early for a purchase means that you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found.

Q.

What will the Burnham property solicitor do when the property we want to buy is in a conservation area and has unapproved windows added?

A.

Your instructed lawyer is required to find out whether the property is located within a conservation area and whether any alterations have necessary consents from the local planning authority.

Q.

Would it be foolish to take care of the conveyancing myself ourselves.

A.

Theoretically there is no argument why a buyer shouldn't complete the legal process unaided. That said, a property lawyer in Burnham juggles a long list of roles from e.g. chasing any outstanding docs and identifying conservation area breaches many of which need a qualified solicitor. Nevertheless legal firms are obligated to pay for suitable professional indemnity insurance to protect you in the event of omissions.

Q.

What causes Burnham property legal work to have so many delays?

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase a home could be lengthy for many reasons. Sometimes, the delays are regrettably out of a lawyer's control. Homeward Legal endeavour to minimise their effect, if it is possible to do so, by using fast search providers.

Q.

What can affect land in Burnham, and are they comprehensively investigated?

A.

Residential property would be contaminated by a range of factors caused by man and by nature, such as radioactive substances in the region or sand or clay quarries. An environmental search will reveal this in more detail.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Burnham?

A.

Burnham is located in Windsor and Maidenhead Royal Borough Council, Town Hall, St Ives Road, Maidenhead, Berkshire, SL6 1RF, Tel: 01628 683 800

Q.

We are buying on a Burnham ex-industrial site. Is the top-soil likely to be contaminated by waste minerals like titanium?

A.

There are regulations in place to manage topsoil contamination. Other sources of contaminated land include groundwater contaminants like industrial chemicals.
