Q.

I need a cheap solicitor for buying a home. What do we need to consider?

A.

Confusion over this issue affects many home owners who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many property lawyers offer so-called cheap conveyancing. However additional costs will be included in the solicitor's terms which unwary home owners fail to check. Any extra charges needs to be reasonable.

Q.

Accord Mortgages Ltd is going to be our lender - what do I need to know?

A.

Buyers should be aware that some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. Homeward Legal, though, will act for all major mortgage lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay your lender's legal costs.

Q.

When do we need to get a conveyancer to handle our transaction?

A.

In the vast majority of cases, the earlier, the better. The legal work can then start straight away. Early instruction of a firm to act on your Datchet sale or purchase can limit the risk of the transaction aborting.

Q.

What type of local authority searches in relation to the risk of local flooding at Berkshire will the conveyancer in Datchet actually carry out?

A.

A qualified conveyancing solicitor conducts official environmental searches, which include Datchet flood risk information. A more detailed search, such as the Landmark search, could be proposed by a Datchet conveyancing solicitor if the results of the initial searches show that there is a potential flood risk to the property.

Q.

Do you address taking action to avoid paying out for stamp duty on a residential property?

A.

SDLT usually must be paid on property purchases priced at over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty scheme should be treated with extreme caution, as such schemes are highly expensive and very risky.

Q.

We are hopefully going to sell our freehold home in a local property auction, does your panel any extra fast Datchet conveyancing solicitors ?

A.

Our chosen solicitors adopt a speed focused approach to fulfilling the conveyancing process for customers to meet the clients needs.

With us, property lawyers will always communicate as efficiently as possible throughout the buyer and seller property chain and that use new online systems to exchange on the property sale to your preferred move date.

Q.

Is caesium (Cs) contamination regularly sampled in Datchet soil?

A.

With this region's industrial history in parts of Datchet, soil contamination is difficult to avoid. The local authority for Datchet will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

The current owner has installed unsympathetic removal of chimney stacks on the property which I think might violate the Picton conservation area criteria.

A.

Local authority LLC1 searches conducted by a property lawyer as part of the conveyancing should ascertain whether the property is in a designated conservation area and evidence of the appropriate permissions for additions to the property will be asked for.
