Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? I need low cost conveyancing.

A.

Both high-street and online property lawyers claim to offer cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. This small print is often not read by homeowners in a hurry. Additional fees needs to be reasonable. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

How many weeks does it take my conveyancer to get through the legal work for a detached forties home we hope to buy?

A.

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere from 3 weeks and three months dependent on any number of things, like the speed of the sellers lawyer, or whether the property is freehold or leasehold. Our chosen solicitors are exceptionally focused on pushing transactions through with the intention of you moving home as promptly we can.

Q.

The web is awash a growing number very helpful resources all about doing your own legal work. Do I really want to use a Christchurch solicitor for my home move?

A.

Technically, there is no argument why a seller cant take care of he your own conveyancing on your own.

That said, a conveyancer is familiar with a huge number of actions e.g. chasing completion statements and interpreting management accounts which require a qualified solicitor. In addition firms and their solicitors are bound to carry the correct indemnity insurance to safeguard you from any failures.

Q.

My lender is Saffron Building Society, is there anything I need to check?

A.

Buyers should consider that, over the last two years, some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, resulting in increased legal costs for buyers if their preferred solicitor cannot act for the lender. We can act for many lenders.

Q.

What can a Christchurch conveyancing lawyer do if the house we are intending to buy is in a registered conservation area and has inappropriate dormer windows installed?

A.

Bournemouth planning authority enquiries carried out by your solicitor should determine if the property is in a conservation area and any evidence of permission for changes to the property will be supplied. If no local authority consents be supplied, your solicitor will recommend the best alternative for example getting an indemnity policy or obtaining retrospective permission from the planning authority.

Q.

Do fixtures and fittings include things like built-in wardrobes?

A.

There is no legal definition of fixtures and fittings, leading to potential for frustration after a sale completes. Conveyancing solicitors recommend a formal fixtures and fittings form to avoid later disagreements and will save much anxiety later in the conveyancing process..

Q.

Flood searches are all well and good but when one considers recent climactic events e g the recent groundwater flooding in Dorset are they actually good enough to investigate enough about the evolving Christchurch flood risk?

A.

A qualified conveyancing solicitor in Christchurch should always include thorough flood searches if the standard searches spots a any kind of risk of flooding in Christchurch

Sometimes home buyers to speak to a next door neighbour for added assurance if still concerned or local Dorset flood damage expert, try: Rainbow International, Unit 19 Priory Ind Pk/Airspeed Rd, Christchurch, BH23 4HE Tel: 01425 279771.

Q.

Would arranging a Homebuyer Report be sensible when we are purchasing a property in Christchurch?

A.

It is firmly advised that you book an inspection when buying in Christchurch. Buyers should be aware that there are many concerns that can affect a property, that will not be addressed during the conveyancing process, which include corrosion of pipework and chimney defects.
