Q.

How do we get fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

This topic catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

How usual is gazumping?

A.

Gazumping is common across England and Wales and describes circumstances where a property seller accepts a lower offer and later dismisses it. Instead, they then go for another buyer's offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a chance of being gazumped. You should instruct your property solicitor as soon as possible to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.

Q.

What will a Fetcham conveyancing lawyer recommend if the home I want to buy is within a Mole Valley council conservation area which has inappropriate dormer windows fitted to it?

A.

Local authority LLC1 searches conducted by your Fetcham property lawyer in the process of the conveyancing should see if the property is inside a conservation area and any evidence of council approval

for changes to the property will be asked for. In the absence of any the necessary permissions the solicitor will give you professional advice on the best alternatives, which include getting from the council or seeking cover with indemnity insurance.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Fetcham?

A.

Fetcham is located in Reigate and Banstead Borough Council, Reigate Town Hall, Castlefield Road, Reigate, Surrey, RH2 OSH, contact: 01737 276 000

Q.

I am intending to purchase a residence in the parish of Bletchingley. Will a chancel search be appropriate?

A.

The Fetcham conveyancing solicitor could advise that a chancel search be taken out, irrespective of the parish in which the property being purchased is found. In Fetcham's much older areas, chancel repair can be imposed on current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

We are buying on a Fetcham ex-industrial site. Could the top-soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Fetcham, but an plot will be marked as 'contaminated land' if the risk to human life is unacceptable. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as water contaminants such as landfill leachate and insecticides.

Q.

We are on a tight budget - Will doing the conveyancing on a DIY basis without the assistance of a Fetcham conveyancing solicitor help save any cash?

A.

If you are so inclined have a go you can definitely conduct your own conveyancing without having a professional Fetcham property lawyer. That said, a Fetcham lawyer is in charge of a significant number of jobs including approving contract or investigating title documents which need the relevant training. More importantly have a go conveyancers are not covered by appropriate indemnity cover that solicitors practices will carry.

Q.

I have taken out a quote from you. Could we be charged any hidden costs?

A.

Homeward Legal's solicitors do not hide any hidden charges. Our quotes offer an single, accurate fee.
