Q.

How do I find fixed rate conveyancing in Eaton Bray?

A.

Several firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing. However extra fees will be included in the terms and conditions. This small print is often not read by buyers in a hurry. Extra fees listed in your solicitor's terms should be clearly defined. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

Will the fixtures and fittings include items like aerials and satellite dishes?

A.

Chiefly, fixtures are 'fixed' to the property and cannot be easily removed and fixtures are free-standing items, such as lampshades. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

Why might the sale conveyancing process in Eaton Bray need such a long time?

A.

Eaton Bray conveyancing will sometimes potentially be delayed. We know how much extra stress these can cause and aim to reduce their cost if it can be achieved by proactively handling all enquiries.

Q.

I have requested a quote from you. Are there any additional charges?

Unfortunately, buyers must be on their guard for considerable extra costs hidden in small print. Homeward Legal will not charge any additional costs. Some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.

Q.

The owner has fitted inappropriate new windows on the flat which I think may overstep the Shelthorpe conservation area rules.

A.

Aylesbury Vale planning authority search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) carried out by your Eaton Bray property lawyer will establish whether the property is in a conservation area and any evidence of council approval for changes to the property will be supplied.

Q.

Should you get searches for chancel liability? I am buying on the same street as a 1500s church in Eaton Bray.

A.

Some owners in Eaton Bray can be required to fund upkeep of a medieval church. A chancel search addresses if such a liability exists. A solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Church of England properties in the area include St Mary the Virgin.

Q.

What average time will it take my designated conveyancing solicitor to get through the legal process for a maisonette in a Victorian building we are intending to purchase?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere from one month to three months depending on any number of factors such as the efficiency of the sellers lawyer, or renegotiations.

Q.

What authority is obliged for logging the state of repair of the conservation areas in Eaton Bray?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, administer a list of the condition of conservation areas in Eaton Bray and across England. Local Eaton Bray conservation areas are nominated by Aylesbury Vale who police the state of the area including things like billboards, side extensions and paths and footpaths.
