I need fixed rate conveyancing. What should I check?

I need to find very fast East Bergholt solicitors - is that your company?

A.

Our panel of solicitors always take a completely active modus operandi when conducting the conveyancing work. We always allocate you to lawyers that are proactive and will always communicate through the whole of the property chain . Additionally , our carefully chosen panel of lawyers are chosen because they always employ professional practice management systems to push through the property sale asap.

Q.

Does your company administer the conveyancing of auction properties in East Bergholt?

A.

We are highly experienced with property auction conveyancing. Frequently more complicated to convey houses such as building land, are listed at property auctions which need increased review. We therefore strongly recommend auction buyers to formally appoint their chosen conveyancing lawyer in advance of the date of the auction to allow adequate time for a full investigation of the auction pack. Following the day of bidding your experienced conveyancing lawyer is completely prepared for completing the legal work within 4 weeks as typically required .

Q.

Do you need to get a chancel search? I am buying a East Bergholt property next to a parson's close.

A.

The result of a court case between a parish council and owners of neighbouring farmland liable for church repairs confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Church of England properties in this area which may give rise to chancel liability include St Mary the Virgin.

Q.

Our estate agent has suggested the conveyancing. Will it be more cost-effective to use this firm?

A.

Estate agent recommendations are a commonplace route to find a solicitor, however, such referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as an agent may decide to recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

Bank of Ireland Mortgages is going to be our lender, is there anything we need to consider?

A.

Some lenders have reduced the number of firms able to act for them. Homeward Legal can act for most CML-approved lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay an additional fee for your lender's solicitor.

Q.

In what ways can the East Bergholt conveyancing solicitor report back on the risk of local flooding in the East Bergholt area?

A.

The solicitor makes an application for formal environmental searches that incorporate East Bergholt area flood risk information. At the time of writing (09/01/13) indications at the Environment Agency do not show any active flood warnings in the East Bergholt area.
