Q.

We need a cheap solicitor to own a leasehold house. What should be watch out for?

A.

This topic catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many law firms claim to offer cheap conveyancing, but additional charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers, eager to get underway. Any additional costs should be fair and clearly defined.

Q.

With a £352k property ready to buy, and no chain, how do we arrange a fast conveyancing transaction in Caddington?

A.

Many buyers will, correctly, argue that instructing a communicative conveyancer is essential to a fast transaction. That said, there are numerous tasks you as the buyer could do to accelerate your conveyancing. These include:

  • encouraging your conveyancer to carry out searches promptly
  • promptly answering your conveyancer's questions
  • arranging your mortgage offer

Q.

How does my solicitor in Caddington report back on the risk and history of local flooding in the Caddington region?

An experienced property lawyer will apply for official environmental searches that incorporate Caddington flood risk information. A more thorough dedicated flood risk search, for instance the Landmark search, will typically be recommended by a Caddington solicitor if the results of the environmental search indicate a risk of flooding.

Q.

Is it important that I get searches for chancel liability? I am buying a home in Caddington.

A.

The outcome of Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must cover the cost of church repairs. Following 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. Caddington ecclesiastical properties where a chancel search may be necessary include All Saints.

Q.

Is a house survey necessary when buying any property?

A.

Homeward Legal firmly recommend that all buyers in Caddington arrange a RICS surveyor to carry out a survey. A wide range of defects can affect a property, for example rotten roof timbers. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

What environmental concerns can impact land in Caddington, and will they be checked for thoroughly?

A.

Property in Caddington is contaminated by a broad range of natural and human-influenced issues, and an environmental search will reveal the extent to which a home may be affected by contaminants in the region including waste disposal sites.

Q.

What is the authority that is obliged for logging the standard of neglect the conservation areas in Caddington?

A.

English Heritage administer records of the state of repair of conservation areas. Local conservation areas are nominated by Central Bedfordshire who preside over the state of the area including things like ugly highway signs, removal of chimney stacks and what can be demolished.

Q.

Might our legal fees conceal any supplementary hidden charges?

A.

Regrettably, the practice of hiding extra costs in the 'small print' is quite common. Homeward Legal will not charge any hidden extra charges. Our conveyancing quotes offer an accurate price the legal expenses for your move.
