Q.

How do we find low cost conveyancing in Chinnor?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this issue catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers advertise so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional costs may inflate your solicitor's invoice. Charges found in the terms ought to be fair and clearly defined and only be applied if the lawyer must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

How much would fee for conveyancing searches be?

A.

Searches in Chinnor ranges in cost. Searches are disbursements.

Q.

What conservation areas are there in Chinnor?

A.

Parts of Chinnor considered be of special architectural or historic interest, like 18th century suburbs, may be recorded as conservation areas. The benefits of such restrictions will include better maintained homes and gardens, but they adds to upkeep costs.

Q.

Should we get a chancel liability search? I am buying on the same road as land owned by the church in Chinnor.

A.

Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Chinnor Church council. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Church lands in Chinnor include St Andrew.

Q.

If Chinnor contaminated land is found in an environmental search, can the soil be remedied?

A.

Some degree of remediation is often feasible, and a local service provider including Chinnor Turf & Paving, Bartons/Springfield Gardens, Chinnor, OX39 4DY may be able to provide additional information.

Q.

Fixtures and fittings are defined as what?

A.

Mainly, there is no absolute definition of fixtures and fittings. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

The house in Chinnor being purchased is on a former industrial site. Could the topsoil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

With this region's industrial history in parts of Chinnor, soil contamination cannot be totally avoided. Also considering issues such as water contaminants such as organic compounds and hazardous gases, contaminants affecting Chinnor property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

What does the Chinnor property solicitor advise if the house I hope to buy is inside the boundary of a South Oxfordshire planning authority conservation area and has unsightly new windows installed?

A.

South Oxfordshire council search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) conducted by a solicitor during the conveyancing process will determine whether the Chinnor property a designated conservation area and any evidence of Coal Authority consent for modifications will be required.
