Q.

A.

Many online and high street law firms promote supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra fees are often hiding in small print.

They be applicable if the conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Which government authority looks after for checking the condition of Harrold conservation areas?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have conducted a survey and created a detailed list on the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas along with the trend of the area. Local conservation areas are set up by Wellingborough who police the state of the area including things like ugly highway signs, side extensions and building materials used.

Q.

Fixtures and fittings refer to which items?

A.

Mainly, fixtures are fixed elements, such as gas or wall-mounted ovens to walls, floors or ceilings securely, whereas 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. This can make the completion of a fixtures and fitting form necessary.

A.

Q.

The internet has plenty of books about how to do DIY conveyancing e.g. Conveyancing Handbook by Frances Silverman . Do I therefore need to instruct a solicitor in Harrold ?

A.

There are no reasons why a home seller cant adopt a DIY approach and conceivably engage in the legal work without the help of property solicitor in Harrold. The truth is however that a property lawyer takes care of a huge number of assignments such as approving pre exchange checklists or interpreting the lease most of which need experience. Fundamentally do it yourself conveyancers are not covered by sufficient indemnity cover that firms and their solicitors always get.
