Q.

I need a low cost conveyancing estimate. What should be watch out for?

A.

Several property lawyers offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra charges may be added into the terms. Any fees listed in the terms should be reasonable and be applicable solely where the conveyancer is required to complete unexpected extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Your Cranfield conveyancing quote should list the disbursements to be paid.Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

Will a report on title prepared by the conveyancer in Cranfield include details of the cost of council tax on a Band F house prior to exchange of contracts?

A.

A conveyancer will contact the governing Central Bedfordshire local authority to find out the up to date council tax rates, which will then be written in the report on title. Council tax charges for homes in Cranfield are tabled online at the Central Bedfordshire council website. At the time of writing (03 September 2012) rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £1,098.00
  • Band B - £1,281.00
  • Band C - £1,464.00
  • Band D - £1,647.00
  • Band E - £2,012.00
  • Band F - £2,378.00
  • Band G - £2,744.00
  • Band H - £3,293.00

Q.

Fixtures and fittings refer to which items?

A.

Usually, there is not a legal definition of 'fixtures and fittings'. A fixtures and fittings form can avoid any disputes, stating what is included with the sale.

Q.

We are planning to sell our freehold home at a residential property auction, does your solicitor panel have any fast solicitors in Cranfield ?

Our firm have a proactive approach when completing the conveyance.

We always work with home moving lawyers that endeavour to communicate through every part of the property chain (line of buyers and sellers) . Moreover our carefully chosen panel of lawyers are actually chosen because they use state of the art conveyancing management and information technology systems to drive through the legal process swiftly.

Q.

How can the solicitor in Cranfield advise us on the risk of local flooding in the Cranfield area?

A.

A qualified solicitor will conduct standard formal environmental searches that should include Cranfield area flood risk information.

Q.

I have found plenty of publications all about DIY conveyancing such as House Buying, Selling and Conveyancing . Do I actually want to use a Cranfield conveyancer ?

A.

Technically there are no reasons why a seller cant go down that route and undertake the legal work yourself. However, a Cranfield property solicitor carries out a huge number of actions ranging from raising additional enquiries and checking that the contract package is in order which require training. Despite that solicitors practices always carry insurance to safeguard you in the event of any carelessness on the part of the solicitor.

Q.

In 1 month we are anticipating to be finally moving from our semi detached home in Cranfield to our new abode in Biddenham what is the optimum stage to appoint a home removal company?

A.

Most conveyancers usually encourage you wait arranging removals until the point where exchange of contracts as commonly an absolute home moving date will not have been contractually agreed.

As a rule removals companies may charge a late cancellation payment . For a local firm Ansell, 177 Bedford Rd, Marston Moretaine, Bedford, MK43 0LE Telephone: 01234 766329 or A B Transport, 44 Beancroft Rd, Marston Moretaine, Bedford, MK43 0PZ on 01234 513470.

Q.

How early should I speak to a solicitor to handle our purchase?

A.

If you choose a conveyancing solicitor with 'no move, no fee' protection, the earlier, the better. Prompt instruction of a firm to act for you on your Cranfield transaction for a purchase may mean that you will the details of your Cranfield solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found.
