Q.

We need to find a fixed rate conveyancing quote. What are the risks?

A.

Numerous property lawyers advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra fees may increase your final invoice. Any fees should be reasonable and clear. They only apply in cases where your conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements to be paid ought to be defined on your conveyancing quote. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

As a consequence of the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England we are wondering whether environmental searches might not be thorough enough?

A.

Conveyancing and environmental searches carried out by a Falmouth solicitor will include a far more rigorous flood search if the risk warrants it.

You could also try to converse with a local resident to get extra local information.

Q.

Might the fees for our conveyancing incorporate any extra fees?

No. Our solicitors will never charge any additional costs for your legal work. Sometimes your solicitor advises that another piece of work be carried out, . Your solicitor can advise you of these.

Q.

We are purchasing a barn conversion in the parish of Tregony with St Cuby. Will a chancel search be compulsory?

A.

Whichever Falmouth parish you are buying in, a conveyancing lawyer may suggest a chancel search. In Falmouth's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on the owners of a property where parish councils may have not done so in the past, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

What does the Falmouth property solicitor do if the house we are planning to buy is in a registered conservation area and has unauthorised roof aerials fitted?

A.

Your instructed conveyancing solicitor will identify if the property is affected by a conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have necessary permissions.

Q.

A.

Areas considered to be of architectural merit, like 18th century suburbs, may be registered as conservation areas. Your solicitor will provide more details.

Q.

What specific property conveyancing searches should a conveyancing solicitor in Falmouth apply for when acting on a Falmouth flat?

If Falmouth land is contaminated, can the soil be cleaned up cheaply?
