Q.

How do we identify a genuinely cheap fee? I am looking for discount conveyancing in Easthampstead.

A.

Both high-street and online law firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing, but additional fees will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers, eager to get underway. Any extra charges found in the terms should be reasonable. They be applicable if the lawyer is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should be included on the conveyancing quote

Q.

My agent has suggested a property lawyer that they have used before. Will it be cheaper to use them?

A.

Estate agent recommendations are a not uncommon path for purchasers to get a solicitor. Such referrals must be carefully considered, as some agents may 'recommend' the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

Do you work with mortgage lenders with Easthampstead branches?

A.

We have solicitors who have experience working with the majority of lenders assisting Easthampstead homebuyers. Easthampstead lenders and mortgage specialists include Marlingham Ltd, 9 Crown Row, Bracknell, RG12 0TH, and Bellamy Amanda, 14 Redditch, Bracknell, RG12 0TT. Your solicitor will be able to state specific lenders' requirements.

Q.

How will the Easthampstead property lawyer advise me on the risk of possible flooding at Easthampstead?

A.

Your residential property conveyancing lawyer conducts property conveyancing searches, which include Easthampstead flood risk area information.

Q.

If we plan to buy in the parish of Chieveley with Winterbourne and Oare, should we get a chancel search?

A.

A solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the house being purchased is found. Although some Parochial Church Councils have decided to charge chancel repairs on the owners of lay rectorships, it is not possible to be certain that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will continue to be free from liability, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

What is the council tax on a Thirties semi-detached property in Easthampstead?

A.

In general, the conveyancing report on title will contain the Bracknell Forest council tax band. Council tax charges for Easthampstead are tabled on the Bracknell Forest council website. At the time of writing on 18 September 2012 rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £912.00

Q.

Is your solicitor team experienced enough to very fast completions on the conveyancing of auction properties in Easthampstead?

A.

In fact we are familiar with local and national auctions and often do the legal work for auction buyers and sellers. Lawyers usually suggest bidders to instruct a conveyancing company well before the property auction to give enough time for a full review of the legal papers.

After the property auction your lawyer is fully able to concentrate on quickly concluding the conveyancing inside a month as conventionally required .

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Easthampstead?

A.

Easthampstead is located in Bracknell Forest Borough Council, Easthampstead House, Town Square, Bracknell, RG12 1AQ, phone: 01344 352 000
