Q.

How do we get low cost conveyancing in Crediton?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many homeowners, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many solicitors claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often extra costs are often hiding in the terms of engagement. The quote should state costs to be paid to third parties, like the local authority, (disbursments).Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

How can I find if any of the designated Crediton conservation areas are in a bad state?

A.

A recent inventory of the state of conservation areas in Crediton is surveyed by English Heritage. The following details are currently listed at English Heritage - Sandford with Crediton determined to be fair with medium vulnerability and deteriorating.

Q.

How soon should I instruct a solicitor?

A.

If you use a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the faster you instruct the better. The legal work can then start very early in the process. Some recommend postponing instruction until a chain is completed, but you will then be at a serious disadvantage in the event of a contract race, or buyer eager to move quickly.

Q.

Can you give the reasons why sale conveyancing takes so long?

A.

Conveyancing can be exposed to significant delays. We seek to curtail the effect of these delays wherever a difference can be made by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible.

Q.

Is contaminated land an issue in Crediton?

A.

A range of contaminants may impair residential property in Crediton, and an environmental search should reveal whether a property could be affected by local contaminants such as pollution incidents and sand or gravel pits. Bawdenhayes Farm, Devon, EX17 4ET, for example, may be a source of local contamination.

Q.

We are buying a property where the seller appears to have installed inappropriate windows to the flat which may conflict with Sandford conservation area rules.

A.

The solicitor will always verify whether the property is affected by a designated conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have appropriate consent from the Mid Devon planning authority.Should no authority consents be in evidence, the solicitor will give you professional advice on the best alternative which may include seeking an indemnity insurance or obtaining retrospective approval from the council.

Q.

Is a property survey advisable when buying a property in Crediton?

A.

Homeward Legal suggest that the majority of buyers order a property survey. Buyers should be aware that there are a wide range of defects which can negatively affect a property, which are not included in your mortgage lender's valuation, including cracks in walls or unsafe chimney circulation.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Crediton?

A.

Crediton is located in Mid Devon District Council, Phoenix House, Phoenix Lane, Tiverton, Devon, EX16 6PP, Tel: 01884 255 255
