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.

Will my Crabtree conveyancing solicitor apply for personal or official searches on my home purchase?

A.

The property lawyer will make a recommendation regarding the most appropriate route, depending on issues like lender requirements. If personal searches are used, your conveyancing solicitor might look for a local search agent e.g Dickerson Barrett & Co Ltd, 7 Cheshire Drive, Plymouth, PL6 6SQ Tel: 01752 789111 Fax: 01752 794283

Q.

It seems that cobalt soil contamination may be an issue in Crabtree. Please advise.

A.

Most soils in Crabtree have some degree of contamination, from industry, agriculture and the natural environment . Also considering issues such as water contaminants

such as phenols and radioactive waste, contaminants affecting Crabtree property will be factored into an environmental search.

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 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 intending to be moving out of our period house on the outskirts of Crabtree into our next property in Budleigh Salterton , what is the right point to select a removals firm?

A.

Homeward Legals advice is for buyers to avoid making arrangements with the removals until after you have contractually agreed the final home moving date that takes place after contracts have exchanged. Depending on certain criteria removals firms may charge a change of date levy
