Q.

How do I find low cost conveyancing in Cirencester?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers and sellers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many solicitors promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra costs may increase your final invoice. Any disbursements must also be stated on the conveyancing quote. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

Do it yourself conveyancing without instructing a solicitor in Cirencester looks to be possible when selling a home. Would it really be a money saving idea ?

A.

There are no arguments why a seller should not complete the legal process yourself.

Despite that firms and their solicitors are required by the SRA to have applicable insurance that protects you in the event of any negligence.

Q.

In about 6 weeks we are hoping to be moving out of our terraced property near Cirencester to a new property in Chipping Campden , what is the optimum stage to book a removals firm?

Q.

How can we avoid being gazumped?

A.

Gazumping occurs when a property seller accepts an offer and then refuses it, opting for a second purchaser's offer. Gazumping may happen even months into a sale. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a danger of being gazumped. Instructing a fast, efficient solicitor as early as possible should help to mitigate this risk.

Q.

What does the Cirencester property lawyer do when the flat we are intending to buy is inside the boundary of a local authority conservation area and has unsanctioned roof aerials installed?

A.

Your instructed property solicitor will carry out searches to check whether the property is within a designated conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have required consents from the local authority.

Q.

We are buying on a brownfield site. Could the topsoil be contaminated by industrial waste like nickel?

A.

Measures are taken across Cirencester and the region to identify and remediate soil contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as chlorinated solvents and groundwater contaminants like household chemicals, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Do you work with mortgage lenders with Cirencester branches?

Most lenders in Cirencester are on our solicitors' panels. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Corinium Mortgages, 25 London Rd, Cirencester, GL7 1AQ, and Wenban A K, 14 Dyer Street, Cirencester, GL7 2PF.

Q.

How is contaminated land in Cirencester checked when purchasing a property?

A.

Land would be contaminated by several factors caused by man and by nature, such as radioactive substances in the region. An environmental search will offer more detail. Kempsford Quarry, Stubbs Farm, Gloucestershire, GL7 4NJ may be one source of local contamination.
