Q.

I am trying to find low cost conveyancing in Dereham. What do I need to check for?

A.

Many online and high street conveyancers purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often additional fees may pad your solicitor's invoice. Additional fees found in your solicitor's terms ought to be fair and clearly defined. They only apply in cases where the lawyer must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

If we are buying near Dereham, in the parish of Hardingham, do we need a chancel search?

A.

A Dereham conveyancing solicitor could recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the building being bought is found. Through some parish councils have chosen to impose chancel repairs on the current owners, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will remain liability-free for new owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

As a consequence of the fact that last year was second wettest year since 1920 we are concerned that environmental searches might not be sufficient?

A.

The Dereham conveyancer should carry out in depth property environmental searches (Landmark search) if the first searches spots a any kind of Dereham flood risk.

It may be sensible to also speak to a local resident for some further local history if still concerned or local Norfolk flood damage business such as: Melton Builders Of Beetley, Quebec St, Dereham, NR19 2DJ Tel: 01362 697780.

Q.

We are shortly going to be finally moving from our semi detached home in Dereham into a dwelling in Cringleford , at what point to appoint a removal company?

A.

Your solicitor would tend to advocate that home buyers and sellers hold off until such time as exchange of contracts because in all probability an actual moving date wont have been firmed up.

The majority of removals companies will levy a rearrangement amount . Local information can be sought from K & L Self Move, Unit 13 Charles Wood Rd, Dereham, NR19 1SX Telephone: 01362 696774 or Birds Removals, Peartree Cottage/Norwich Rd, Dereham, NR20 3AL on 01362 693541.

Q.

What can a Dereham property lawyer advise if the property I hope to purchase is in a Breckland planning authority conservation area that possibly has inappropriate stone cladding installed?

A.

The local authority search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) carried out by your Dereham property lawyer during the legal process should determine if the property is within a conservation area and any evidence of formal approval for additions to the property will be asked for.

Q.

Where do I go about check out if the Dereham designated conservation area is at risk?

A.

Conservation areas are specified by the local Breckland planning authority, who police the state of the area including things like poorly maintained public spaces, removal of chimney stacks and public spaces. English Heritage have put together records of the condition of conservation areas.
