Q.

Local points of interest in Dorchester

A.

Max Gate National Trust Winterborne Came St Peter Churches Conservation Trust and Whitcombe Church Churches Conservation Trust are situated in Dorchester.

The nearest hospital for Dorchester is Dorset County Dorchester.

Q.

How do we identify a genuinely cheap fee? I need low cost conveyancing.

A.

This matter catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra charges can pad your final bill. The conveyancing quote must also state costs to be paid to third parties, e.g. the Land Registry, (disbursments).Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What does a Dorchester property solicitor do when the home we are buying is in a local authority conservation area and has inappropriate doors added?

A.

Your property solicitor will confirm whether the property is located within a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have requisite permissions from the West Dorset planning authority.

Q.

We have had a conveyancing quote from you. Might there be any supplementary hidden costs?

A.

No. Homeward Legal do not hide any extra, hidden fees to carry out standard conveyancing. You Dorchester conveyancing quote is an single, accurate price the legal costs for your move.

Q.

What are 'fixtures and fittings'?

A.

In the main, there is not a strict definition of 'fixtures and fittings'. 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.

Do your solicitors advise on the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Dorchester?

A.

Our CQS solicitors often carry out work for auction buyers and sellers. Our niche auction team of property lawyers have previously worked for numerous vendors at regional property auctions, for example Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Quite often hard to value lots like development land are listed at auction which tend to require extra examination by the conveyancing lawyer. We therefore recommend buyers at auction to formally instruct an affordable conveyancing firm well in advance of the auction day to give enough time for a review of the legal papers.

After the auction day arrives your appointed lawyer is utterly ready for finishing all of the legal work within the reduced time frame as required .

Q.

What kind of local environmental searches in relation to the risk of floods at Dorset will my conveyancer in Dorchester be able to apply for?

A.

An integral component in the legal due diligence process involved in buying a home involves the conveyancing solicitor applying for environmental searches that go into details on the Dorchester historical flood risk. A significantly more specific flood risk search (e.g. Landmark) may be recommended by the Dorchester conveyancer, if in the event that the enviro. search reveal a flood risk.

Q.

At what point should I get a conveyancer?

A.

Whether you are buying or selling in Dorchester, the sooner you instruct a firm, the better, as there are several tasks that can be performed immediately. Promptly instructing a firm can reduce the likelihood of your transaction aborting.

Q.

If land is found to be contaminated, can the topsoil be remedied?

A.

Remediation may be possible, and Dorchester government authorities are usually responsible. A local provider such as Top Turf Supplies Ltd, 2 Winton Cottages, Corscombe, Dorchester, DT2 0NX can provide further information.
