Q.

We are looking for a discount conveyancing quote in Chesham Bois. What do we need to consider?

A.

Lack of clarity over this point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers offer cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra fees will be included in the solicitor's terms, left unread by preoccupied buyers

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Maids Moreton?

A.

The property lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. In Chesham Bois's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the current owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. For property in the parish of Maids Moreton, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Do you advise that I get a chancel search? I am buying a maisonette on the same road as an ecclesiastical parish in Chesham Bois.

The judgement in a landmark case in 2003 confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. A chancel search is used to confirm whether such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Ecclesiastical properties in the area where a chancel search may be appropriate include Beacon School and St Leonard's Church.

Q.

We are buying a £752000 residence in Chesham Bois. How is stamp duty calculated?

A.

Stamp Duty is dependent on several factors, including the home's value. On a £752000 house or flat, stamp duty will be £30080.*

Q.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like bathroom suites?

A.

In the main, there is no legal definition of 'fixtures and fittings'. The need to clarify this is regularly neglected, which makes a fixtures and fittings form so useful.

Q.

What causes conveyancing for a sale to have so many delays?

A.

Conveyancing in Chesham Bois may be lengthy. Homeward Legal know how stressful these delays can be and endeavour to minimise the effect of these delays by driving the transaction forward. Reasons for delay include the time taken to return management information.

Q.

Should we get a home buyers survey?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors firmly recommend that all buyers in Chesham Bois book a surveyor. There are many defects that can affect a property. These can include subsidence.

Q.

Which particular conveyancing searches does a Chesham Bois conveyancer apply for when buying a Chesham Bois house?

A.

The standard procedure is to obtain these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environment Search and occasionally less common searches for instance Land Charges Search (K15).
