Q.

We are looking for a lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing in Costessey. What do we need to check for?

A.

Many law firms offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra costs may be added into small print. Any additional charges which are listed in terms of engagement should be reasonable and clear. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

We are planning to buy a Victorian terraced house, should we have 'conveyancing searches' ordered?

A.

These searches are a standard set of questions carried out on behalf of the party intending to buy the property. They will not be a substitute for a building survey.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process do I need to speak to a conveyancing solicitor in Costessey?

A.

If you choose a firm with 'no move, no fee' protection, the sooner the better, as the legal work can start very early in the process. Instructing your solicitor earlier for a purchase may mean that you will the details of your Costessey solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found.

Q.

What type of local searches into the risk of a flood in the Norfolk region will my Costessey property lawyer be able to do?

An important component in the conveyancing protocol involves a lawyer applying for environmental searches that offer specific information regarding Costessey flooding. In addition the Costessey conveyancing solicitor might recommend a more detailed specialist flood risk search.

Q.

What environmental concerns will impact land in Costessey, and are they checked for thoroughly?

A.

Residential property in Costessey could be contaminated by several natural and human-influenced issues, and factors such as local waste transfer sites or petroleum and fuel sites will be considered as part of the environmental searches.

Q.

Is it recommended that we get a chancel search when I am buying a home near rectory grounds in Costessey?

A.

Property owners near to specific local church buildings are expected to contribute towards repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Costessey property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Church of England properties in the local area include St Edmund.

Q.

Do I need a homebuyer report?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors recommend that all buyers book a house surveyor to perform a survey if you are planning to buy in Costessey. It is a fact that there are a range of problems that can affect a property. These include insect infestation or cracked roof tiles. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

If we plan to buy in the parish of Catton, are we advised to get a chancel search?

A.

Whichever Costessey parish you are purchasing in, a solicitor responsible for your move may suggest a chancel search. In Costessey's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
