Q.

We need to find affordable conveyancing. What do we need to consider?

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', however extra costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions which unwary property buyers and sellers fail to check. Any fees found in the terms should be reasonable. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Do I need to get a house survey?

A.

It is strongly advised that you book a survey. A wide range of issues affect a property, such as rotten roof timbers, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

If we plan to purchase near Devizes, in the parish of Bremilham, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Whether you are buying a house in Devizes or elsewhere in the county, the Devizes conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. Through some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on the owners of lay rectorships, it cannot

be guaranteed that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will remain liability-free for new owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Do fixtures and fittings include things like chairs?

A.

Property buyers are frequently confused by the lack of detail regarding which fixtures and fittings will be included. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

I've had a conveyancing quote from you. Are there any hidden fees?

A.

No. We never charge any hidden extra fees for any reason. It may be the case that a separate piece of work is also advised, a statutory declaration, . Your solicitor can advise you of these.

Q.

What environmental concerns can contaminate land in Devizes, and will they be comprehensively investigated?

A.

Many of contaminants has the potential to affect residential property in Devizes, and an environmental search should reveal if a property is impacted by contaminants in the area like proposed erection of mobile masts.

Q.

Does Devizes include many conservation areas?

A.

Conservation areas cover areas of 'special architectural and historic interest'. The council will provide more details about local conservation areas, and the lawyer handling your purchase should discuss what specific restrictions are in place.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Devizes?

A.

Devizes is located in Wiltshire Council, County Hall, Bythesea Road, Trowbridge, Wiltshire, BA14 8JN, contact: 0300 456 0100
