As a consequence of the flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands I am worried that property conveyancing searches aren't exacting enough?
Conveyancing searches applied for by your conveyancing solicitor in Burton upon Stather should include a more in depth Landmark flood search if the risk warrants it.
Why not also speak to a neighbour of the property for some further local history.
Are the doctors/dentists/schools oversubscribed in the area I want to move to?
Although your conveyancing solicitor may have some personal knowledge of these critical factors, they are not part of the conveyancing process, so will not form part of the contract.
If aspects such as how likely you’ll get into a surgery or school are important to you, it is worth factoring this in at an early stage when you are researching the areas into which you want to move. You can also glean some facts from the estate agent representing properties where you want to move, too. You might also like to contact the surgeries or schools for further information.

Does a property lawyer in Burton upon Stather order any property on the Lincolnshire Sixties mid terrace home we are buying?
If buying and getting a mortgage, your lender mandates at least these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search, and, depending on certain criteria, special local Burton upon Stather searches such as British Waterways Search.
Would arranging a Homebuyer Report be necessary when we are buying residential property?
The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors heavily advise that home buyers arrange a home surveyor. A wide range of defects can affect a property, for example cavity wall tie failure.
What are the benefits of an online solicitor against a high street firm?
Many commentators and bloggers have suggested that you get so much more from online conveyancers because they have access to state-of-the-art applications to manage their cases and use the latest communication technology.
However, there is nothing stopping high street conveyancing firms from adopting such technology. And they will have a wealth of experience and knowledge of the local area that they can bring to bear on your transaction.
It all comes down to what they offer and how they go about their business. You should get a selection of quotes and read through the terms and conditions in detail to understand the comparisons between what they offer and how much they are going to charge you for the service.
If you choose Homeward Legal, you not only get an experienced proactive solicitor but also access to the latest technology and local knowledge. Call us now on 0800 038 6699 to find out more.
Would the property's fixtures and fittings include fitted gas or electric fires?
In the main, fixtures are fixed elements, such as central heating systems to the property, whereas fixtures are easier to detach or remove. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This can make the clarification of any difference of opinion so important.
