Q.

Daventry attractions and landmarks

A.

Daventry Daventry Country Park Country Park and Wolfhamcote St Peter Churches Conservation Trust are close to Daventry.

The nearest hospital to Daventry is Danetre Daventry.

Q.

I am trying to find a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Daventry. Can you assist?

A.

Many conveyancers advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any costs should be reasonable.

Q.

As a consequence of the major flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands, we are anxious that property conveyancing searches may not be sufficient?

A.

Environmental searches conducted by your conveyancing solicitor in Daventry should include the far more in depth search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are apprehensive you might try to approach a future neighbour.

Q.

Do we need to get a chancel search if I am buying a Daventry house close to parish grounds?

A.

Property owners near to an old church building must contribute towards the cost of repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. Your conveyancing lawyer will suggest an appropriate

indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Church properties in this area include Holy Cross and St Peter & St Paul.

Q.

What can the fees for my conveyancing searches be?

A.

The cost of searches varies noticeably. They are paid out to a 3rd party, and will be charged at cost.

Q.

We are buying a property where the seller has installed ill-suited satellite dishes on the house in Daventry which I think might exclude conservation area criteria

A.

A property solicitor will see if your proposed purchase is within a designated conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have the requisite permissions from the local planning authority.

If no appropriate consents can be provided your solicitor will recommend the alternatives like obtaining an indemnity insurance or requesting retrospective consent from the appropriate local authority.

Q.

Should we get a building survey?

A.

Homeward Legal firmly suggest that the majority of purchasers in Daventry book a property surveyor when you plan to buy in Daventry. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of concerns that have a negative impact on a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address, such as unsafe chimney circulation.

Q.

My wife and I are buying in Daventry, and would like to confirm that there are many conservation areas.

A.

Conservation areas characterise streets and neighbourhoods of architectural merit. You may wish to contact the local council if you have specific questions, but your lawyer will investigate this in detail during the conveyancing process.

Q.

Which environmental factors can impact land in Daventry. Are they a concern?

A.

A wide range of contaminants caused by natural causes may seriously affect land, and an environmental search should clarify to what extent a property is affected by contaminants including coal mining or other land contamination.
