Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? I am trying to find affordable conveyancing.

A.

Numerous property lawyers offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However extra costs are often hiding in the terms. Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.

Q.

Is homewardlegal.co.uk able to very fast completions on the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Clophill?

A.

The legal team are property auction specialists and do frequently act for buyers at auction. It is sensible for auction buyers to formally appoint their chosen lawyer as soon as possible to allow for a full review of the property's legal title before the property auction. Subsequently, immediately after the date of the auction your dedicated lawyer is completely able to concentrate on completing the purchase in 4 weeks as required by the auction conditions.

Q.

We are buying on a ex-industrial site. Can the topsoil still be contaminated?

A.

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Clophill, but an area will only be identified as 'contaminated land' if the risk to human life or the environment is deemed unacceptable. Data on many contaminants, such as groundwater contamination and fertilisers, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

How can the conveyancer in Clophill investigate the potential risk of floods to properties in Clophill?

A.

A vital part of the legal due diligence procedure of purchasing a property involves your solicitor making an application for conveyancing and environmental searches that give specific information about the potential Clophill flood risk area.

Q.

Our lender is Metro Bank - is there anything I need to know?

A.

Buyers should be aware that some lenders have limited the firms who can act for them. For buyers, this can result in significantly increased legal costs. Homeward Legal, however, are able to act for many mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

When you are buying next to rectory grounds in Clophill, will we need to get a chancel search?

A.

Property owners near to nearby church land may be required to contribute towards repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. A chancel search is employed to check whether such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. A solicitor will be able to advise further. Church of England properties in the local area include St Mary the Virgin.

Q.

The current owner appears to have fitted unseemly windows on the property which I think might exclude the Milton Abbas conservation area rules.

A.

Local authority searches conducted by the solicitor as part of the conveyancing will confirm if the property is inside a conservation area and any evidence of Coal Authority consent for alterations will be asked for.

Q.

Do fixtures and fittings include things like aerials and satellite dishes?

A.

In general, fixtures are 'fixed' to the property and fixtures are free-standing items, such as tables and chairs. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction, and this can make the completion of a fixtures and fitting form necessary.
