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.

Should we select a solicitors firm referred by the agent?

A.

Agent referrals are a common practice route for buyers to find a solicitor. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, the agent may recommend the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

Will a property report compiled by the property solicitor in Groby detail the rates of the council tax on a Band H property before exchange of contracts?

A.

Your conveyancer will consult with the council to ascertain the up to date council tax band and rates, which should then be written in the report on title. The latest council tax charges for Groby are published on the local authority website.

Q.

Do I need a chancel liability search? I am buying on the same street as a 12th Century rectory manor in Groby.

A.

Property owners in an area near local churches may be required to contribute towards the cost of repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. A chancel search checks that such a liability exists. Your solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Church lands in this area include St Philip & St James.

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.

The internet is full of a plethora of online handbooks going into great depth on doing the legal work yourself. Do I actually have to use Groby property solicitor ?

A.

If you are so inclined have a go you can certainly do the conveyancing without the services of a professional Groby conveyancing solicitor. Above all else DIY lawyers will be working without suitable insurance which every solicitors are liable to be required to obtain.

Q.

Does the conveyancing solicitor in Groby report on the risk of local flooding in the Groby region on a residential maisonette we are going to buy?

A.

The lawyer makes an application for property environmental searches that should include Groby flood risk area data. In addition the conveyancing solicitor in Groby will often recommend an inexpensive (around twenty pounds) and more detailed flood risk search.

Q.

If I am purchasing near Groby, in the parish of Saxby with Stapleford, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Your conveyancing lawyer could advise a chancel search. In Groby's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on new owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.
