Q.

We need a solicitors firm that offers cheap conveyancing. and what is included?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many homeowners, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many conveyancers purport to offer cheap conveyancing. However extra costs are frequently hidden in small print. Any fees should be clearly defined. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

We are intending to buy in Byfleet. How do I check if the property is in a designated conservation area?

A.

These areas conserve regions of 'special architectural and historic interest'. The advantages of these restrictions will include security that the surroundings are unlikely to change, but they create additional maintenance and repair responsibilities. Your conveyancing solicitor will provide more details.

Q.

Is a building survey a good idea when purchasing residential property?

A.

It is strongly recommended that you order a house survey. Many defects can negatively affect a property, which include flat roof leaks.

Q.

Byfleet conveyancers carry out varied property conveyancing searches when they are instructed to act for a purchase client, but which particular searches?

A.

When you are applying for a mortgage the building society of bank will expect at least the following Local

Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental, and occasionally specific local Byfleet searches, like a Cheshire Brine Search.

Q.

How long should it take our solicitor to conclude all of the legal work on a semi detached home we want to buy?

A.

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere between one month and 3 months, which can depend on a number of factors, for example the speed of the vendor's property solicitor, or the speed of other lawyers in the chain. Our chosen conveyancing solicitors are highly proactive with the goal of completing as promptly as possible.

Q.

In the next few we are hoping to be finally moving out of our period home in Byfleet to our new maisonette in Bramley at what stage to select a home removal firm?

A.

Most solicitors will recommend that home buyers and sellers wait booking a removals company until such time as exchange of contracts has occurred as an absolute date will not have been set. Some house removals firms add a cancellation cost . Try Errand Link, Flat 3 Berrys Court/Berrys La, Byfleet, West Byfleet, KT14 7BE Tel: 07931 154275 or Chappells Storage Solutions Ltd, Unit 6 9 Abbot Cl Trackside Business Centre, Byfleet, West Byfleet, KT14 7JN Call: 020 79376229.

Q.

Will my assigned Byfleet conveyancing solicitor report back to me about the cost of the council tax for a Band E townhouse before completing on the purchase?

A.

Your solicitor will consult with the Elmbridge local authority to enquire about the current council tax band and rates, which will be written in the conveyancer's title report.

Q.

Is it necessary that I get a chancel search? We are buying on the same street as a priory built in the 1400s in Byfleet.

A.

Property owners in an area near local churches may be required to fund repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Byfleet property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. Your solicitor can provide more details. Church lands in Byfleet include St Marys.
