Q.

How do I get the best conveyancing rates in Harbury for a £534,000 home?

A.

This issue affects many buyers and sellers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process, and many property lawyers purport to offer cheap conveyancing, but additional costs are often hiding in the terms. Your conveyancing quote ought to define the disbursements to be paid. Additional fees listed in the solicitor's terms should be fair and clearly defined. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

I plan to purchase a medieval barn conversion in the parish of Corley. Is a chancel search important?

A.

Whichever Harbury parish you are purchasing in, a conveyancing lawyer could recommend a chancel search. In older areas of Harbury, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

We are buying in Harbury. Do we need property searches?

These searches are a standard pack of enquiries raised by the purchaser's conveyancer. Searches will not be a substitute for a building survey.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search? I am purchasing in Harbury.

A.

The result of Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank in 2003 confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Several sources are used to determine liability in Harbury, including county histories. Harbury ecclesiastical properties include All Saints.

Q.

Are buyers often gazumped in Harbury?

A.

This arises when a property seller accepts an offer, only to later reject it in favour of a better offer. There is almost always a chance of gazumping. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing a law firm as early as possible.

Q.

Do we need to choose a property solicitor offered by my estate agent?

A.

If you opt for a solicitor referred this way, you the agent is able to use their influence encourage a solicitor to wrap up the process as soon as possible. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, an agent may decide to recommend the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

My husband and I are planning to buy in Harbury, and need to know if there are many conservation areas.

A.

Areas considered to be of historical or architectural value, like mining villages, may be designated as conservation areas. A solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities for affected areas in Harbury.

Q.

As a consequence of the widespread flooding last year in the Midlands I am asking whether environmental searches may not be sufficient?

A.

An experienced conveyancing solicitor in Harbury will recommend that you carry out informative conveyancing searches if the first conveyancing searches determine a risk.

You might be able to also contact a local resident for that more information if you are still worried.
