Q.

How do we find the best rates for conveyancing in Farnham for a £75,000 house?

A.

Many solicitors purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra fees can inflate your final invoice. Any extra costs included in terms and conditions needs to be reasonable and clear. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search? We are buying in Farnham.

A.

The result of Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank in 2003 reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must pay for church repairs. As a consequence of a recent Act, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. Your conveyancing lawyer can provide more details. Church properties in the area include St Mary the Virgin, St Mary the Virgin, Byworth St Francis and Compton St Mary.

Q.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like the fridge?

A.

In the main, fixtures are permanently fixed to walls, floors or ceilings and fixtures are free-standing. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This makes a fixtures and fittings form so necessary.

Q.

Our estate agent in Maxton has put forward a solicitor which they often use. Is it advisable to instruct this solicitor?

A.

If you instruct a conveyancing solicitor through this route, you may have the benefit of the agent's willingness to move the conveyancing process along. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, an agent may decide to recommend the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

Which Farnham lender panels are your solicitors on?

A.

We can work with many lenders approved by the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Farnham, including A B M, 1 Kimbers La, Farnham, GU9 9PT, J P Mortgage Services, 31 Longhope Dr, Wrecclesham, Farnham, GU10 4SN, and Stedman & Co, 30 Downing St, Farnham, GU9 7PD.

Q.

How soon is it appropriate to instruct a conveyancer?

A.

If you choose a solicitor with 'no move, no fee' protection, the earlier in the process you can instruct a solicitor, the better, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks which may be carried out very early in the process. Some suggest waiting before instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but opting to delay can jeopardise your sale or purchase.

Q.

The residence being bought is on a ex-industrial use land. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

Even where some contamination has occurred in Farnham, risk levels are usually low. Also considering issues such as chlorine, contaminants affecting Farnham property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

What causes Farnham purchase conveyancing to have so many delays?

A.

The legal work required to buy or sell property could be lengthy. We endeavour to reduce the consequences of these delays by driving the sale or purchase forward. Common delays include difficulties with mortgage finance.
