Q.

How do we find fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

Both high-street and online law firms offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional fees will be included in the small print which unwary buyers fail to check. Any extra charges should be fair. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Which lender panels in Didcot are your solicitors members of?

A.

The Homeward Legal group can work with the majority of lenders providing financing to home buyers in Didcot. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include David Parson, 70 Beech Rd, Wheatley, Oxford, OX33 1UD, Brookhouse Associates, Office Suite 2/4 Bridge Street Mills/Bridge St, Witney, OX28 1FX, and Mortgages Inc, Po Box 63, Wheatley, Oxford, OX33 1WE.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if I am intending to buy in the parish of Oxford St Thomas the Martyr?

A.

Whichever Didcot parish in which you are buying, a property solicitor might recommend a chancel search. In older areas of Didcot, chancel repair may be apportioned on current owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so. For property in the parish of Oxford St Thomas the Martyr, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

What will the council tax cost on a new build Band G apartment in Didcot?

A.

Your homes appropriate council tax band should normally be highlighted as part of the title report along with the local council Up-to-date rates for Didcot are detailed on the South Oxfordshire council website. As at, 09 March 2013, the different rates are:

Q.

We are buying on a brownfield site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste like vanadium (V)?

A.

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Didcot, but some very localised cases of contamination in Didcot may pose unacceptably high risk. Also considering issues such as water contaminants such as petrol, contaminants affecting Didcot property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

How much can the fee for our conveyancing searches come to?

A.

Searches range in cost, depending on the particular searches ordered. The most frequently ordered searches include a local authority search and a drainage search.

Q.

Which zones of Didcot are secured by a conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas preserve areas of historical merit. You may wish to contact the council if you have specific questions, but your solicitor will investigate this in detail during the property transaction.
