Normal conveyancing procedure will be to obtain these searches - Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental and occasionally special local Cottenham searches e.g. a British Waterways Search.

Q.

Might the conveyancing quote cover any additional costs?

A.

No. Homeward Legal do not charge any hidden extra charges for your standard conveyancing. Some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.

Q.

With a home ready to buy, and no chain, can we guarantee fast conveyancing?

A.

It is a truism that instructing a proactive and experienced solicitor is the key to a fast completion. There are a number of tasks you, as the buyer, can do, such as, quickly answering your solicitor's questions, requesting regular updates from your solicitor and keep the pressure on and confirming your mortgage offer.

Q.

What does the Cottenham conveyancing lawyer advise if the home we are buying is inside the boundary of a conservation area in South Cambridgeshire local authority that may have unsuitable PVC windows installed?

A.

South Cambridgeshire local authority enquiries carried out by your Cottenham conveyancing solicitor should find out if the property is inside a conservation area and evidence of formal approval for additions to the property will be requested. In the event that no appropriate consents be produced, your solicitor will advise you of the best alternatives, which include buying an indemnity insurance policy or seeking retrospective permission from South Cambridgeshire planning authority.

Q.

Should we order a chancel search if we plan to purchase in the parish of Little Abington?

A.

Your solicitor responsible for your move might recommend a chancel search, whichever parish where the house being bought is found. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so.
