Q.

How do we get the best conveyancing rates for a 233k residence?

A.

This matter catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional fees can increase your final bill. Extrasfound in terms and conditions ought to be reasonable. They only come into force where your conveyancer must complete additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

I am buying a maisonette in the middle of a conservation area in Chipping Campden. How do I find data relating to the current state of repair of the area?

A.

English Heritage have produced records of the state of repair of conservation areas. Local conservation areas are specified by the local Cotswold planning authority, who manage things like street furniture to the hindrance of poorly maintained roads.

Q.

We plan to buy a property in the parish of Coln St Dennis. Should we get a chancel search?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have spared previous owners or tenants. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

How long on average will it take for my designated conveyancing solicitor to conduct the conveyancing process for a maisonette in a Regency property we are purchasing?

A.

It can take anywhere from around a month and twelve weeks, which can be hampered by any number of factors, for example the speed of the seller's property solicitor, or the speed of managing agents. Our chosen solicitors are exceptionally results-orientated, with the intention of completing the process as speedily as we possibly can.

Q.

Do I need a chancel search? We are buying a Chipping Campden property near a 14th Century 'church furlong'.

A.

Where land in Chipping Campden was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards the cost of maintenance of local churches. Following the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land in Chipping Campden must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Church of England properties in Chipping Campden include St James.
