Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? We need an affordable Great Dunmow conveyancing estimate.

A.

This matter catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra charges will be included in the small print. Busy, stressed buyers and sellers ignore these terms at their peril. Additional fees listed in the terms needs to be fair. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

We are buying in Great Dunmow, and have a conveyancing quote from you. Will we be expected to pay any extra charges?

A.

No. Homeward Legal will not charge any additional charges regardless of circumstances. Some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.

Q.

Is contaminated land a problem for most houses in Great Dunmow?

A.

Great Dunmow property is contaminated by many environmental concerns. Contaminants such as nearby electrical substations will be investigated during the conveyancing process. Crumps Farm, Stortford Road, Essex, CM6 1SR is a source of potential local contamination in Great Dunmow.

Q.

If I plan to purchase near Great Dunmow, in the parish of Langham, do we need a chancel search?

A.

The solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search. Through some Parochial Church Councils have chosen to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, there is no way to be certain that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not automatically be the case for future owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Will a Great Dunmow solicitor order any searches on the Essex forties detached cottage we are buying?

A.

The routine conveyancing procedure is to get Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental and occasionally less common searches, which may include a British Waterways.

Is arsenic (As) often identified in Great Dunmow soil?

A.

Great Dunmow agriculture or industry can cause soil contamination. Other sources of contaminated land include fertilisers.

Q.

What are fixtures and fittings?

A.

In general, fixtures are fixed items, such as door handles to walls, floors or ceilings and fixtures can be more easily removed. 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 the completion of a fixtures and fittings form essential.

Q.

As a result of the fact that 4 of the top 5 wettest years recorded were in last 12 years, I am concerned that conveyancing searches might not be sufficient?

A.

Your Great Dunmow solicitor should also get rigorous flood searches if the initial conveyancing searches establishes a significant risk the local Great Dunmow flood risk
