Q.

How do I get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Earls Barton?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many sellers and buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many conveyancers purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Extra fees found in the small print should be fair.

Q.

We are buying a house in the parish of Thornhaugh with Wansford. Will it be necessary to get a chancel search?

A.

The solicitor should confirm that a chancel search be ordered, regardless of the parish where the property being bought is found. In older areas of Earls Barton, chancel repair can be imposed on owners of a property where church councils may have not done so in the past. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Apparently, barium soil contamination may be an issue in Earls Barton. Can you advise?

A.

Though the dangers are usually minor, some very localised cases of contamination in Earls Barton may pose unacceptably high risk. The local authority for Earls Barton will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

The local agent has named a solicitor . Will it be cheaper to use this solicitor?

A.

An agent will be able to influence one or more conveyancing firms they refer a lot of work to, and can therefore to reduce delays in the conveyancing process. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, the agent may prefer to suggest the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

When in the process is it appropriate to instruct a conveyancer in Earls Barton?

A.

In simple terms, the sooner you instruct a firm, the better. Instructing a conveyancing firm early for a purchase means that you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer.

Q.

Is it advisable that we get a chancel search? I am purchasing a Earls Barton apartment near a rectory.

A.

Chancel repair liability can require some home owners to contribute towards repairs to churches. Some names or words such as 'abbey' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Church properties in Earls Barton include All Saints.

Q.

Should we get a property surveyor to look into the property purchase?

A.

It is suggested that purchasers instruct a surveyor to undertake a survey. A range concerns have a negative impact on a property, including settlement.

Q.

How much can fees for my conveyancing searches in Earls Barton be?

A.

With a Homeward Legal conveyancing solicitor, a client will be expected to pay at most £249 for a standard bundle of searches. Searches are paid out to a 3rd party, and are not included in the quoted conveyancing fees.
