How do we find the best conveyancing rates for a £504,000 home?


Many law firms claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra fees are often hiding in the small print.


What type of local environmental searches as respects the uncertain risk of local flooding in the Wiltshire area will the Downton property lawyer do?


An important component in the legal procedure involves a conveyancing lawyer making an application for property environmental searches that offer some details on the Downton flood risk. Also as an additional measure a Downton conveyancing solicitor could possibly suggest an inexpensive additional involved local Downton area flood risk search. A recent check (06-Dec-08) there were no warnings around the Middle Avon at Downton at the Green Lane, The Borough, Gravel Close, Long Close and the High Street in Downton


Should I use a solicitors firm commonly used by my agent?


Both agents and mortgage brokers may suggest a law firm. Such referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as it may be the case that the agent recommends the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.


Do we need a chancel search if we are intending to buy in the parish of Hinton Parva, near Downton?

The solicitor responsible for your move may suggest a chancel search, whichever parish in which the property being purchased is found. Through some Parochial Church Councils have chosen to exact chancel repairs on owners of lay rectorships, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish which has not imposed liability will not be so in future.

What do I need to be aware of if we buy a converted flat located inside a Test Valley planning authority conservation area ?


Test Valley local authority LLC1 searches carried out by the solicitor during the conveyancing process should check the existence of suitable permission for any development to the property.


Does your solicitors company get involved in the conveyancing for auction properties in Downton?


Our company is very competent with residential property auction conveyancing. Typically more complicated to convey homes like barn conversions, are purchased in auctions and these demand greater inquiries before completing. We therefore strongly encourage bidders to instruct a SRA regulated conveyancing firm in advance of the property auction date to allow for a review.

After the auction day itself your dedicated lawyer is wholly focused on finishing all of the legal work inside a month as typically required .
