We need to find a fixed rate conveyancing estimate in Easton. and what is included?

Many property lawyers promote cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional charges may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement which homeowners may have not read carefully

Are the any areas of conservation in Easton likely to affect us?

The common procedure will be to obtain these searches - Local Authority (council), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental and, depending on certain criteria, special local Easton searches for instance Subsidence.

Q.

How much would the searches in Easton cost?

The cost of conveyancing searches does vary, subject to the searches your lender requires. These searches are charged at cost.

Q.

Should we be worried about gazumping?

A.

Gazumping arises when a buyer's offer is accepted, and then rejected, by the house seller and then selecting a second buyer's offer. Although being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a risk. You should instruct your property solicitor as soon as possible to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.

Q.

We are on a tight deadline and need ensure fast conveyancing, how could we accelerate our move?

A.

The key to fast conveyancing is to use a proactive and experienced conveyancing solicitor. Ask these questions when identifying your conveyancer:

  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?
  • Are phone, fax and email their preferred methods of contact
  • Do they offer 'no move, no fee' protection? This can incentivise a faster transaction.

Q.

Do I need to get a home buyers survey?

A.

It is heavily suggested that most Easton buyers book a house surveyor if you are intending to buy in Easton. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of defects that will impact a property, for example blocked drains and insect infestation, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

As a consequence of the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England we are worried that environmental searches may not be sufficient?

A.

Your Easton conveyancing solicitor should get additional flood searches if the initial searches spots a any kind of Easton flood risk area data

For extra area background you could also try to speak to a neighbour of the property.
