Relevant local Cottenham travel and services facts ;

Waterbeach train station is about 4 miles from Cottenham. Cottenham's nearest airport is Cambridge City Airport.

Q.

Cottenham area information

A.

Willingham Cambs Windmill, Denny Abbey and the Farmland Museum English Heritage and Long Stanton St Michael Churches Conservation Trust are easily accessible from Cottenham.

The most convenient hospital to Cottenham is Impington, Cambridge Lea.

Q.

How do I get affordable conveyancing?

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra costs can increase your solicitor's invoice. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

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.

Q.

Is preparation of statutory declarations paid to the conveyancing solicitor?

A.

Comparing quotes is not always easy, given the various definitions different firms use to describe the same thing. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and will normally be included in a quote.

Q.

The estate agent we're using in Aspley Guise has named a conveyancing. Should I use this solicitor?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will push a solicitors firm. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may decide to recommend whichever firm pays the most per referral, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

We are buying on a new development ex-industrial use land. Is the soil likely to remain contaminated by waste minerals like aluminium?

A.

Cottenham agriculture or industry can cause soil contamination. Metal contamination of soil in Cottenham is more likely to occur near landfill sites. Data on other contaminants, like industrial storage, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Is a survey necessary if we are buying a house or flat, regardless of its age, in Cottenham?

A.

Homeward Legal firmly suggest that all buyers instruct a RICS surveyor. There are many defects that can negatively affect a property, such as subsidence.

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.

Can you confirm which Cottenham lenders your lawyers work with. Which panels are you a member of?

A.

Most lenders in Cottenham are on our solicitors' panels. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Scott Mark Ltd, 15-17 White Hart Ct, St. Ives, PE27 5EA, Cambridge Mortgage Line, 268 Milton Rd, Cambridge, CB4 1LQ, and Limetree Financial Services, Unit 2 Pioneer Court/Chivers Way, Histon, Cambridge, CB24 9PT.
