Q.

We are looking for a law firm that offers cheap conveyancing. What do we need to check for?

A.

Various solicitors promote so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any charges found in the small print ought to be reasonable. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Do we need a surveying expert to check for defects affecting the property purchase?

A.

It is advised that all purchasers in Cobham order a building survey. A wide range of problems have a negative impact on a property, for example dry rot. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

What will a Cobham property solicitor do if the house I want to buy is located in a conservation area and has unsanctioned satellite dishes added?

The solicitor to verify if the property is affected by a conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have the required consents. If no appropriate consents can be provided the solicitor will give you professional advice on the alternatives for example buying an indemnity insurance policy or obtaining retrospective approval from Elmbridge council.

Q.

The estate agent we are using in Hythe has put forward a lawyer that they have used before. Is it advisable to use them?

A.

It is common for agents in Hythe to endorse one or more conveyancing firms, however, these referrals must be carefully considered, as the agent may prefer to suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best value for you.

Q.

Do I need a chancel search? We are purchasing in Cobham.

A.

The judgement in Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank in 2003 confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Cobham Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Church lands in Cobham which may give rise to chancel liability include St Andrew, St Mary Church Room, Sole Street and St Mary Magdalene.

Q.

What do we need to know about fixtures and fittings?

A.

Buyers in Cobham are often frustrated by confusion regarding which fixtures and fittings should be included in a purchase. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

It seems that barium soil contamination may be an issue in Cobham. Please advise.

A.

There are considerable regulations to prevent future soil contamination. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Cobham, including local authorities.

We have had a quote from you. Will we need to pay any supplementary hidden costs?
