Q.

We are trying to find fixed rate conveyancing, we are on a tight budget.

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', however extra costs are often hiding in the small print. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Your quote ought to define any disbursements. Extra costs included in your solicitor's terms should be fair. They be applied only where your solicitor must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like beds?

A.

Purchasers are regularly frustrated by a lack of clarity around which fixtures and fittings are included in a purchase. This can be overlooked, making the completion and approval of a comprehensive fixtures and fittings form so important.

Q.

What will a Freshford conveyancing lawyer advise if the property is in a Wiltshire planning authority conservation area that has incongruous windows installed?

Wiltshire local authority search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) conducted by your Freshford property lawyer during the legal process will check if the property is within a conservation area and evidence of consent for changes to the property will be required. If no appropriate permissions be produced, your solicitor will give you professional advice on the best alternative like seeking an indemnity insurance or obtaining retrospective permission from the appropriate local authority.
