Q.

I am trying to find fixed rate conveyancing. What should I check?

A.

Many firms advertise cheap conveyancing. However extra costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Any disbursements to be paid should be included on a Chadderton conveyancing quote. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

Do we need a survey?

A.

It is highly recommended that you arrange a survey. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of concerns that have a negative impact on a property, that a lender's valuation survey, for example, will not cover, including roof damage and roof spread.

Q.

What particular search enquiries will a property lawyer in Chadderton conduct on a Chadderton flat?

A.

The normal procedure will be to get Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environmental and Coal Mining Search and, depending on certain criteria, specific searches, which may include a Index Map Search.

Q.

Is a Local Authority search a disbursement or fee?

Every disbursement and fee should be identified on a quote for your conveyancing, with any possible extra costs clearly listed. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on at cost.

Q.

My mortgage lender is Britannia - what will we need to be aware of?

A.

Recently, a number of lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating higher conveyancing costs for buyers. Homeward Legal, however, can act for all large lenders.

Q.

For fast conveyancing to buy a £524,000 house, how can we speed things up?

A.

As is often argued, finding a proactive solicitor is crucial to moving faster. Consider the following when selecting:

  • Are phone, fax and email their preferred methods of contact
  • Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote?
  • Are they 'no move, no fee'? This can incentivise a faster transaction.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if I am buying in the parish of Chadderton, near Chadderton?

A.

The solicitor instructed to handle the transaction is likely to recommend a chancel search. In older areas of Chadderton, chancel repair may be imposed on current owners of a home where parish councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

Should the fixtures and fittings form list external light fixtures?

A.

Commonly, fixtures are 'fixed' to walls, floors or ceilings securely and fixtures can be more easily removed. 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 completion of a fixtures and fitting form necessary.
