Q.

How do I find the best conveyancing rates for a £324,000 property?

A.

Numerous conveyancers promote so-called cheap conveyancing, however extra fees will be included in small print. A quote should also state the disbursements to be paid. Feeswhich are listed in terms and conditions should be reasonable and clear. They be applied only where your lawyer must perform additional tasks for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

What do property searches mean?

A.

Searches are enquiries ordered by the purchaser's conveyancing solicitor. They are unable to address physical defects.

Q.

If I am buying a flat on the same road as a 1500s church in Fenton, will we need a search for chancel liability?

A.

Where land in Fenton was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to fund repairs to an old church building. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Fenton property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. Fenton Church of England properties where chancel liability may apply include All Saints and Christ Church.

Q.

We are buying on a brownfield site. Is vanadium (V) soil contamination likely?

A.

Given the region's industrial and agricultural history in parts of Fenton, soil contamination is inescapable. Also considering issues such as disinfection by-products and water contaminants such as oil, contaminants affecting Fenton property will be factored into an environmental search.
