How long does it take my assigned conveyancer to complete all of the legal work for the top floor of home?
Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere between a month and 3 months, which can be hampered by any number of factors, for example the efficiency of the vendors lawyer, or whether your solicitor has to act for your lender.
Should I organize a private purchase of items on the Fixtures and Fittings form?
This would be very unwise as the Fixtures and Fittings Form (TA10) forms part of the contract, and it lists all the items that the seller is planning to leave at the property with an agreed price for anything they want money for.
To try to organise a private sale outside of this clear and controlled process may result in difficulties later on in the process, which is precisely why this form is in place. If you want something to remain that’s not listed on the Fixtures and Fittings Form, raise a query through your solicitor so that negotiations may be formally carried out.

I have read about handling the legal work when buying and selling a maisonette. Might it be a good idea to take care of the legal work on my own?
Should you want to try, you can feasibly conduct the greater majority of the legal and technical work without the services of Crick property solicitor. More importantly DIY conveyancers will not have relevant insurance cover which all solicitors firms will have.
How will the Crick conveyancing solicitor report on the risk and history of floods in the Crick region on a buy to let property we are hoping to buy?
Your lawyer will apply for environmental searches, which include Crick historical flood risk data. A substantially more specialist flood history/risk search (e.g Homecheck) will often be suggested by the property lawyer in Crick if in the event that the initial conveyancing searches reveal a flood risk.
A right of way on the property I’m buying is redundant, but how do I get it removed from the deeds and registry?
A right of way through the grounds of a property is probably an inheritance before other building in the vicinity occurred that has since made the passage through redundant.
But, while having the right of way registered with the deeds means that feasibly someone could insist that they use it (as their public right), but, if they can’t access where the right of way originally led, it makes it a pointless activity.
It’s so unlikely that anyone will want to do this that you have to weigh up the cost of the legal process to get the right of way officially removed against not proceeding. However, if you are at all worried, talk to your solicitor so that it can be investigated further as part of the conveyancing, at which point they can guide you on the appropriate action and the associated costs (this will be in addition to the standard fees for the conveyancing and your solicitor will advise of this additional cost).
Homeward Legal's solicitors provide transparent quotes, detailing what is included in the fees and disbursements and will help with estimates for additional legal work. So, now is the best time to get your conveyancing under way on 0800 038 6699.
