Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms promote cheap conveyancing. Often extra costs are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. The quote should list any disbursements. Extra fees should be fair and clearly defined.

Q.

As a consequence of the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since 1920 we are concerned that conveyancing and environmental searches may not be detailed enough?

A.

A East Molesey conveyancer should always carry out detailed flood searches if the initial search identifies a risk of flooding in East Molesey.

You might be able to also converse with a local resident for that further comfort if still concerned.

Q.

Does the conveyancing solicitor in East Molesey report back to me about the cost of council tax on a Band C property before exchange?

Q.

Are East Molesey many designated conservation areas going to constrain us?

A.

Parts of East Molesey considered be of architectural or historic interest, like 18th century suburbs, may be recorded as areas of conservation. The benefits of such restrictions include protection against unsympathetic development, but they may impose liability on a buyer for unauthorised alterations made by previous owners.

Q.

What will the East Molesey conveyancing lawyer recommend if the property I want to buy is within a Elmbridge planning authority conservation area which has out of place windows fitted?

A.

Elmbridge council enquiries conducted by the solicitor during the conveyancing process should confirm if the property is inside a designated conservation area proof of local authority approval for changes to the property will be supplied. If no appropriate permissions be supplied your East Molesey conveyancing solicitor will advise you of the best alternative which may include buying an indemnity policy or requesting retrospective approval from Elmbridge council.
