Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if I am intending to buy in the parish of Spaxton?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor could advise a chancel search. Through some church councils have decided to charge chancel repairs on owners of land subject to chancel liability, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish which has not imposed liability will not automatically be the case for future owners.

Q.

Which factors can impact land in Clevedon, and will they be properly investigated?

A.

Property would be contaminated by many environmental factors. Issues like nearby waste management facilities and masts or pylons should be reported on during conveyancing searches.

Q.

Which specific property conveyancing searches should the Clevedon property solicitor get when buying a Clevedon property?

The customary procedure is to obtain the following Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environment Search and Tin Mining Search, and possibly specific searches such as British Waterways.

Q.

What would my conveyancing searches on average cost?

A.

With Homeward Legal, a client will be charged no more than £249 for searches. These searches are disbursements, and are charged 'at cost'.

Q.

Is a managing agent fee a disbursement or a fee?

A.

Some solicitors attempt to pass off extra costs as necessary disbursements. It may not be clear whether a cost is a disbursement or not, and if it should be included. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in a conveyancing quote.

Q.

How long should it take our conveyancer to complete the conveyancing process for a semi detached recently developed house?

A.

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere from around a month and 3 months dependent on any number of things, such as the efficiency of the vendor's property lawyer, or the time taken to get a mortgage offer. Our proactive property solicitors are extremely focused on communication completing the legal process as promptly as achievable.

Q.

What does a Clevedon conveyancing solicitor recommend if the home is situated in a North Somerset planning authority conservation area which has ill-suited satellite dishes fitted?

A.

The local authority enquiries conducted by the solicitor during the conveyancing process will confirm if the property is in a designated conservation area and any evidence of planning authority consent for modifications will be asked for. If no appropriate consents be available your solicitor will inform you of the alternatives which can include seeking an indemnity policy or obtaining retrospective approval from North Somerset local authority.
