Q.

The neighbouring hospital for Duxford is Rosie Maternity Cambridge.

Q.

How do we find fixed rate conveyancing in Duxford?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many law firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra fees will be included in small print. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Additional fees needs to be fair and reasonable. They be applicable if your solicitor must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

Is contaminated land in Duxford an issue for the majority of properties?

A.

Property in Duxford can be contaminated by a range of natural causes and human activities, like shallow mining. An environmental search will offer more detail.

Q.

Which government authority looks after for safeguarding the standard of the conservation areas in Duxford?

A.

Local conservation areas are set up by South Cambridgeshire who govern everything from including things like neon signs, addition of hard standings to front and trees. English Heritage have produced records of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas.

Q.

I am buying in Duxford, and need to know if there are any conservation areas.

A.

Locales deemed to be of historical merit, such as historic transport links, will be registered as areas of conservation. These restrictions can make repairs more costly or time-consuming, but the benefits will include preservation of an area's historic charm.

Q.

What does the Duxford conveyancing solicitor recommend if the flat I am buying is inside a South Cambridgeshire planning authority conservation area that possibly has unbecoming dormer windows added?

A.

South Cambridgeshire local authority enquiries conducted by your Duxford property lawyer will establish if the Duxford property a conservation area and any evidence of authorisation for changes to the property will be requested.

Q.

The residence in Duxford being bought is on a brownfield land. Is the soil potentially contaminated by waste minerals like cadmium (Cd)?

A.

Duxford industrial or agricultural can cause top-soil contamination. The local authority for Duxford will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

Is a home buyers survey advisable when buying a house or flat, regardless of its age?

A.

It is strongly recommended that the majority of purchasers in Duxford book a building survey. There are many defects that can negatively affect a property, including cavity wall tie failure and wet rot. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

How long should it take my designated conveyancer to handle the conveyancing formalities on a terraced Thirties property?

A.

The process can take anywhere between 1 month and 3 months, which can depend on various things for example the speed of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or whether additional searches are required.
