Q.

Cottenham area information

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.

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.

How much does charges for our searches total?

A.

With a Homeward Legal solicitor, you will be charged at most £249 for searches. The most frequently used searches include an environmental search.

Q.

Which regions of Cottenham are covered by a designated conservation area?

A.

Locales deemed to be of historical merit, such as 18th century suburbs, will be designated as conservation areas. The council will be able to provide

more details about local conservation areas, and the solicitor handling your purchase will confirm potential liability for unauthorised works.

Q.

What sort of checks regarding the risk of flooding at Cambridgeshire will the property solicitor in Cottenham do on a Regency house I am hoping to buy?

A.

A solicitor will conduct environmental searches that should include Cottenham area flood risk information.

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.

Is your panel of solicitors geared up for 28 day completions on the conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Cottenham?

A.

Yes - Indeed we are auction specialists and regularly get instructed by sellers at auction. It is a sensible decision to select a suitable property conveyancing lawyer as quickly as possible to allow adequate time for a review of the lot well in advance of the date of the auction.

Subsequently, following the day of bidding your Homeward Legal property conveyancing lawyer is wholly focused on briskly finishing the legal side of things inside the limited time frame as usually required .
