Q.

We need a cheap solicitor to buy a property. Can you assist?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many property buyers and sellers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many solicitors claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Excited property buyers and sellers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any extra charges needs to be clearly defined. They only apply to matters if your conveyancer is required to complete unexpected extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The disbursements to be paid ought to be listed on your conveyancing quote. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Should the form for fixtures and fittings include items such as furniture?

A.

In general, fixtures are fixed elements, such as central heating systems to the property, whereas fixtures are easier to detach or remove. This is often overlooked, making agreement of a comprehensive list of included items so essential.

Q.

May fees for the conveyancing for my sale in Crabtree incorporate any supplementary hidden costs?

A.

Our solicitors never charge any extra, hidden costs for standard conveyancing work. Know that some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, which they will not be required to adhere to.

Q.

In regards to the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England, we are concerned that flood risk searches might not be thorough enough?

A.

Flood risk searches carried out by a Crabtree lawyer should also include the far more detailed search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.

You can speak to a local resident for additional assurance if you are still worried.

Q.

What inquiry concerning the risk and history of flooding around Devon will a conveyancing solicitor in Crabtree report on?

A.

An integral part of the conveyancing protocol involved in buying a home involves a solicitor applying for conveyancing and environmental searches that offer you some details on the Crabtree flood risk area.

Q.

We are purchasing a property in Charleton with Buckland Tout Saints. Do we need a chancel search?

A.

A solicitor instructed to handle the transaction may suggest that a chancel search be taken out, whichever parish in which the house being purchased is found. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not continue to be so. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

What will the Crabtree property lawyer do if the flat I am buying is situated in a conservation area and has ill-suited PVC windows added?

A.

Your instructed lawyer should check whether your proposed purchase is inside a conservation area and whether any modifications have requisite permissions.

Q.

We are buying in Crabtree. Are there many conservation areas?

A.

These areas categorise streets and neighbourhoods recorded as being of special architectural or historic interest. Your conveyancing lawyer will advise further.
