Q.

We are trying to find a fixed rate conveyancing estimate. What should be watch out for?

A.

Many online and high street property lawyers promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional charges will be included in the terms of engagement that home owners often do not check. Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.

Q.

What length of time should I expect it to take our property solicitor to get through all of the legal work on the lower floor of sixties house?

A.

It can take anywhere between around a month and twelve weeks, based on a number of issues, like the speed of the seller's property lawyer, or whether the property is freehold or leasehold.

Q.

What can a Groby conveyancing lawyer recommend if the flat I hope to invest in is situated in a Hinckley and Bosworth local authority conservation area which seems to have an un-consented PVC windows added?

A.

The local authority enquiries carried out by your Groby property lawyer as part of the conveyancing should determine whether the Groby property a conservation area and any evidence of Coal Authority consent for additions to the property will be asked for.

Q.

Do we need a building surveyor to check for defects affecting our Groby home purchase?

A.

It is advised that you arrange a RICS surveyor. It is a fact that there are a wide range of issues which have a negative impact on a property, which are not included in your mortgage lender's valuation, for example settlement.

Q.

In respect of the flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands we are wondering whether environmental searches may not be exacting enough?

A.

A thorough lawyer in Groby will advise you to get flood risk searches if the standard searches identifies any kind of local Groby flood risk.

Perhaps you could converse with a neighbour of the property to get additional peace of mind.

Q.

Which factors can impact land in Groby. Will they be checked for comprehensively?

A.

Residential property may be contaminated by a range of natural causes and human activities, and factors such as other sources of contaminated land should be reported on during conveyancing searches.

Q.

For a fast exchange and completion on the purchase of a £430,000 home, what do we need to arrange?

A.

Many buyers will, correctly, argue that contacting a proactive and experienced lawyer is essential to faster conveyancing. There are a number of things you can do to speed up your conveyancing. These include:

  • requesting status updates from the lawyer regularly
  • promptly completing and return any forms
  • organising your finances, including arranging a mortgage

Q.

How can I stop getting gazumped?

A.

Gazumping occurs when an offer is accepted but then rejected by the property seller, selecting instead a second purchaser's offer. Though being gazumped is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a risk. Instructing a property solicitor early to handle your transaction should help to reduce the likelihood of gazumping.
