Q.

Please confirm the cheapest fee for a 236,000 home? I need to find an affordable Cotgrave conveyancing quote.

A.

Various property lawyers advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra charges will be included in the solicitor's terms. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any costs included in terms and conditions ought to be fair and clearly defined. Your conveyancing quote should state any disbursements to be paid.We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What does the Cotgrave conveyancing solicitor advise if the property I am buying is located in a conservation area in Rushcliffe planning authority which has inappropriate windows fitted to it?

A.

Local authority enquiries carried out by your solicitor during the legal process will determine if the Cotgrave property a designated conservation area and evidence of planning consent for modifications will be required.Should no necessary permissions be produced, your solicitor will advise you of the alternatives which may include taking out an indemnity policy or getting retrospective approval from Rushcliffe council.

Q.

What makes the sale conveyancing process in Cotgrave to be so delayed? Isn't it just filing paperwork?

The conveyancing process will occasionally be exposed to significant delays. We know the needless stress these can cause and endeavour to reduce their burden by pushing all parties involved.

Q.

I have read about the flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands, we are wondering if flood risk searches might not be thorough enough?

A.

A conveyancer in Cotgrave should always carry out flood risk searches if the enviro searches determine a any kind of Cotgrave flooding risk.

It may be sensible to converse with a close neighbour to gain additional local history.

Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if I am intending to purchase in the parish of Barnby in the Willows, near Cotgrave?

A.

The solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. In older areas of Cotgrave, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on owners of a property where church councils have previously chosen not to do so. For property in the parish of Barnby in the Willows, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Is contaminated land a problem in Cotgrave?

A.

Land may have been contaminated by a broad range of naturally-occurring factors, like proximity to landfill sites. An environmental search will reveal this in more detail.

Q.

Do you need to get a chancel search? We are purchasing a Cotgrave flat conversion close to a 14th Century 'parson's close'.

A.

Where land in Cotgrave was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards the cost of repairs to nearby church property. Parochial Church Councils in Cotgrave must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. A solicitor will be able to advise further. Ecclesiastical properties in the area include All Saints.

Q.

What is gazumping?

A.

The practice of rejecting the first offer post-acceptance when a better one is made by another buyer is called gazumping. The danger of gazumping is present in any transaction. You should instruct your solicitor as soon as possible to reduce the chance of gazumping.
