Q.

How do we find fixed rate conveyancing in Fakenham?

A.

Both high-street and online firms purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges may be added into the terms which unwary property buyers and sellers fail to check. Your quote ought to list the disbursements to be paid.Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Property environmental searches are fine but when one considers climate change such as the fact that last year was second wettest year since records began are they the best way to advise us enough about the Fakenham flood risk?

A.

A competent property solicitor in Fakenham will recommend that you get flood searches from Landmark if the first search spots a any kind of Fakenham area flood risk

It may be sensible to speak to a future neighbour for that added information if you are still worried or local Norfolk flooding repair expert, e.g. BHI Builders, 6 Hindringham Rd, Bale, Fakenham, NR21 0QQ Tel: 01328 878684.

Q.

Please give reasons why conveyancing in Fakenham requires weeks?

A.

Conveyancing can be held up even in ideal circumstances. Some reasons are out of the solicitors' hands. We appreciate how disruptive they may be and seek to minimise their consequences

if it can be achieved by driving the transaction forward. Common delays include difficulties with mortgage finance.

Q.

How soon should you arrange a conveyancing solicitor to act for us?

A.

The short answer is, the earlier, the better. Some suggest waiting before instruction until a chain is completed, but opting to delay can jeopardise your sale or purchase.

Q.

Is it advisable that I get a chancel search when you are buying a Fakenham property near a church furlong?

A.

In Fakenham, where land was once owned by a lay impropriators, new owners of that property may be obliged to subsidise maintenance of nearby church land. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Fakenham property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Churches in Fakenham where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Peter & St Paul.

Q.

Conveyancers in Fakenham order a variety of searches if acting for a buyer - which particular searches?

A.

If you are getting a mortgage the building society of bank will expect at least specific searches, including these searches - Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental, and perhaps specific local Fakenham searches such as Planning Search.

Q.

Scottish Building Society is our lender, what will we need to be aware of?

A.

In some cases, lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly increased legal costs. We are able to act on behalf of the majority of lenders.

Q.

How is stamp duty assessed, and how much will it be on a £1171000 residence?

A.

Stamp Duty will rely on the purchase price. On a £1171000 Fakenham property, stamp duty will be £58550.
