Q.

The closest hospital for Burton Latimer is Cransley Hospice Kettering.

Q.

We need a cheap solicitor quote for selling a freehold home, we are on a tight budget.

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this matter catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote supposedly cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional fees can inflate the final bill. Any fees included in the solicitor's terms needs to be fair and only come into force where your conveyancer is required to complete unexpected extra work on your behalf, 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.

How many weeks should it take my solicitor to exchange the conveyancing formalities on the lower floor of period house we are thinking of buying in Burton Latimer?

A.

Completion can take anywhere from 1 month to twelve weeks, which can depend on various factors, for example the efficiency of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or the number of people in the chain. Our chosen conveyancers are very proactive completing the process as rapidly as achievable.

Q.

Burton Latimer property solicitors apply for some property conveyancing searches when acting for a purchaser, but which actual ones?

A.

If purchasing and applying for a mortgage, your lender requires you to at least specific searches, including the following Local Authority (personal or official),

Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environment Search, and possibly specific local searches such as Land charge Search (bankruptcy only).

Q.

For a fast conveyancing process to buy a £ 297k house, what can we do to speed up our conveyancing process?

A.

Crucial to a fast completion is to use a proactive conveyancer. Consider the following when selecting:

  • Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?
  • Will they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?

Q.

We are buying a home in Helpston. Will a chancel search be important?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor might recommend that a chancel search is taken out, irrespective of the parish in which the property being purchased is found. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the owners of a property where parish councils may have not done so in the past.

Q.

Could arsenic (As) contaminate land in Burton Latimer?

A.

Government policy is in place to control pollution, waste, water and chemical contamination. The local authority for Burton Latimer will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

Santander will be our mortgage lender, what do we need to be aware of?

A.

Some lenders have reduced the number of firms able to act for them. We are able to act for the vast majority of lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

We are buying a renovated flat within a Burton Latimer conservation area, how does one find more information in relation to the standard of repair of the conservation area?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, keep a list of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas.

Local Burton Latimer conservation areas are designated by the local authority (Kettering) who oversee everything from building materials to plastic box signs.
