We need to find fixed rate conveyancing. What should be watch out for?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted.

Q.

Our mortgage lender is Yorkshire Bank - what do we need to be aware of?

A.

Some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', resulting in increased conveyancing costs for purchasers if the lender insists upon their own solicitor . Homeward Legal, though, will act for most lenders.

Q.

Will you need a chancel search when we are buying a property near a priory built in the 1500s in Chipping Norton?

A.

Owners of property in Chipping Norton may be subject to chancel repair liability. Parochial Church Councils in Chipping Norton must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Church lands in the local area where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Mary the Virgin.

Q.

Should we choose a solicitors firm who frequently works with by the estate agent?

A.

The agent will often refer a solicitors firm, however, these referrals must be carefully considered, as some agents choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

We are buying on a former industrial site. Is the top-soil potentially contaminated by waste minerals like rubidium (Rb)?

A.

Though the dangers are usually minor, contaminated land areas are labelled as such if the danger to the environment is judged to be too great. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Chipping Norton, including local authorities.

Q.

Having heard about the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since on record, I am thinking that flood risk searches might not be exacting enough?
