Q.

How do I get fixed rate conveyancing in Claydon?

A.

Many solicitors purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra costs can pad the solicitor's invoice. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

Is it advisable that we get searches for chancel liability? I am buying in Claydon.

A.

In Claydon, some owners can be required to pay for maintenance of older church buildings. Some names or words such as 'Glebe Farm' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Church of England properties in Claydon include St James the Great.

Q.

Conveyancing solicitors in Claydon order varied property conveyancing searches when they are instructed by a purchase client, but which particular ones?

A.

If taking out a mortgage a mortgage lender expects a solicitor to get at least specific searches, including these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search and Environmental, and occasionally unique particular e.g. a Index Map Search.

Q.

If I am intending to purchase near Claydon, in the parish of Barking with Darmsden, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Whichever Claydon parish in which you are buying, a conveyancer might recommend a chancel search. In Claydon's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on current owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Is titanium (Ti) soil contamination likely in Claydon?

A.

Policies are in place to control pollution, waste, water and chemical contamination. Other sources of contaminated land include acidic compounds and water contaminants such as landfill leachate.

Q.

Which of the mortgage lender panels in Claydon are your solicitors on?

A.

The Homeward Legal partnership have worked with the majority of lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Claydon, including Mortgage Now (UK) Ltd, 1 Market Pl, Hadleigh, Ipswich, IP7 5DL, Direct Mortgages Consortium Ltd, 2 Great Colman St, Ipswich, IP4 2AD, and Mortgage Innovations, Lindos, Witnesham, Ipswich, IP6 9EW.

Q.

What causes sale conveyancing legal work to be so delayed?

A.

The Claydon conveyancing process may be delayed. We do our best to reduce the effect of these delays where feasible.

Q.

Will the title report compiled by the professional conveyancing solicitor in Claydon give information the rates of the council tax on a maisonette prior to contracts are exchanged?

A.

Your conveyancer will liaise with the Ipswich local council to ask about the applicable council tax band and rates, which will then be set out in the title report. Correct rates for homes in Claydon are published at the Ipswich council site. At the time of authoring on 15 November 2012 band rates are:

  • Band B - £1,247.00
