I am looking for a cheap Cottesmore solicitor for selling a flat. Can you assist?


Various property lawyers offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional costs may pad the final bill. Any disbursements to be paid should also be included on the conveyancing quote. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your sell.


What type of checks concerning the uncertain risk of possible flooding around Rutland will my lawyer in Cottesmore be able to apply for?


A lawyer will apply for official environmental searches that should include Cottesmore flood risk area information. A more involved flood history/risk search, such as the Landmark search, may be advocated by a Cottesmore solicitor, if in the event that the enviro. search highlight flood risk to the property. At the time of writing (05/01/13) publication on the Environment Agency do not list any flood warnings in Cottesmore.


Is simultaneous exchange and completion a disbursement or fee?


An ideal quote will itemise fees and disbursements, clearly stating which is which. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a quote.


Would getting a property survey be sensible when purchasing property in Cottesmore?

It is heavily suggested that the majority of purchasers in Cottesmore instruct a surveyor to carry out a survey. There are a wide range of concerns which have a negative impact on a property, which will not be addressed during a property valuation. These can include cavity wall tie failure and subsidence.


What issues are key to guarantee a fast completion?


Contacting a proactive and experienced conveyancer is key a fast transaction. Furthermore, there are a number of tasks you as the buyer can do to speed up the process. These include:

  • answering any queries raised by your conveyancer as soon as possible
  • ordering a property survey early in the transaction
  • calling or emailing your conveyancer, and chase them if you suspect any delays


What do we need to know about fixtures and fittings?


Commonly, fixtures are permanently fixed to walls, floors or ceilings securely and fixtures are free-standing. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.


I am planning to buy an Edwardian terraced house. Is it that significant that searches are performed?


These searches are a commonly-used set of enquiries performed on behalf of the purchaser, for example a drainage search. Conveyancing searches are very informative, but deal with legal considerations.
