Q.

I need the cheapest conveyancing solicitors. How do we get a quote?

A.

The confusion over this matter catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many law firms offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, but additional fees may pad the final bill. Additional fees listed in the terms ought to be reasonable and clear. They be applicable if your lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

What does 'fixtures and fittings' mean?

A.

Usually, fixtures are 'fixed' to walls, floors or ceilings, whereas fixtures are easier to detach or remove. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction, and which makes a fixtures and fittings form so necessary.

Q.

If we plan to buy near Fenstanton, in the parish of Tadlow, do we need a chancel search?

Your conveyancing lawyer could advise a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the house being purchased is located. In older areas of Fenstanton, chancel repair can be imposed on owners of a house where church councils may have not done so in the past, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

I am purchasing with Co-operative Bank - what do we need to know?

Q.

Are there any conservation areas in Fenstanton?

A.

Parts of Fenstanton considered be of 'special architectural and historic interest', like picturesque villages, may be designated as conservation areas. These restrictions can add to maintenance costs, but the benefits include a more attractive neighbourhood.

Q.

I am expecting to be finally moving out of our semi detached house just outside Fenstanton into our next abode in Somersham . At what stage to book a removal company?

A.
