Q.

How do I get the best rates for conveyancing in Fordingbridge for a 797,000 property?

A.

Numerous law firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing, but additional costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Busy, stressed buyers and sellers ignore these terms at their peril. Any disbursements ought to be listed on the quote Costslisted in the terms should be reasonable and clear.

Q.

I plan to buy a home in Winchester St Michael. Will a chancel search be necessary?

A.

A conveyancing lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. Although some church councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not continue to be so. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

As a consequence of the fact that last year was second wettest year since records began we are questioning whether environmental searches may not be detailed enough?

A.

Flood searches carried out by the conveyancer in Fordingbridge should also include a more rigorous search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.

If you remain still nervous you can get in touch with a local resident or local Hampshire flooding repair expert like Patrick Browne Construction, 1 Mill Ct, Fordingbridge, SP6 1JQ Tel: 01722 487704.

Q.

How many lenders in Fordingbridge do you work with?

A.

We are able to work with the majority of lenders approved by the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Fordingbridge, like Mortgage Market, 117 Victoria Rd, Ferndown, BH22 9HJ, WRK Mortgage Solutions, 13 Stonechat Cl, Ferndown, BH22 9QH, and Melbury, High St, Gillingham, SP8 4QT.

Q.

Do you recommend that we get a chancel search? We are buying a Fordingbridge property close to a church built in the 1600s.

A.

Chancel repair liability can require property owners to contribute towards the cost of repairs to specific local church buildings. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. Fordingbridge Church of England properties include St Mary the Virgin.

Q.

At what point should you instruct a solicitor to act on our sale?

A.

The straightforward answer is, the sooner the better, as there are several tasks that can be performed straight away. Instructing a firm to handle your Fordingbridge conveyancing early for a sale means that relevant information can be sourced sooner (this is particularly true for leasehold properties), whereas if you are buying you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer.

Q.

Does the HS2 route affect homes in Wycombe District?

A.

Yes. High Speed 2 Phase 1 will be an issue in numerous properties in High Wycombe. Project works are due to get underway within five years.

Q.

We are intending to buy a renovated maisonette within a conservation area. How do we locate more information on the state of repair?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have created records of the condition of conservation areas in Fordingbridge and throughout England. Local conservation areas are specified by the local authority (New Forest) who maintain conservation area concerns from building materials used to the hindrance of street posts.
