Q.

How do we get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra charges are often hiding in small print. Extra costs should be fair. They be applicable solely where your lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing for you, 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.

Which local authority looks after Caterham?

A.

Caterham is located in Tandridge District Council, Station Road East, Oxted, Surrey, RH8 0BT, Call: 01883 722 000

Q.

I am buying a converted building in one of the conservation areas, how do we find more details concerning the current state of repair?

A.

English Heritage have assembled a list of the state of conservation areas.

Local Caterham conservation areas are set up by the local authority (Tandridge) who govern conservation area concerns from paths and footpaths to the prevention of new developments.

Q.

Flood searches are assessed from archived information and when you factor in recent climactic events like fact that 2012 was second wettest year since records began are they the ideal way to determine sufficient information about the ever changing Caterham flood risk area?

A.

Environmental searches carried out by a Caterham property solicitor will include a more specialist flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

If you remain concerned you can visit a next door neighbour or local Surrey flooding repair expert - try: RGB Services, 47 Heath Rd, Caterham, CR3 5RS Tel: 0800-978 8161.

Q.

If we are buying in Caterham on the same road as a church constructed in the 16th Century, should I get a search for chancel liability?

A.

There are 15000 ecclesiastical parishes throughout the country. Property owners within some of these may be required to cover the cost of the repair of a local church. A chancel search confirms that such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. Church lands in the area include St Lawrence, St Mary the Virgin and Valley, St John the Evangelist.

Q.

I have requested a quote from you. May there be any extra fees?

A.

Homeward Legal will not charge any additional charges regardless of circumstances. You should be aware that some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

Q.

What sort of searches as respects the risk of a flood around Surrey will a Caterham conveyancing solicitor actually apply for?

A.

A residential property conveyancing lawyer conducts conveyancing searches, which include Caterham historical flood risk data. Also as an additional measure the conveyancing solicitor in Caterham may possibly suggest an inexpensive (around twenty pounds) and more specialist local search.

Q.

The house being bought is on a brownfield site. Is the soil likely to remain contaminated?

A.

Caterham industrial or agricultural can cause top-soil contamination. The local authority for Caterham will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.
