Q.

I am looking for a property lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing in High Wycombe. What do we need to consider?

A.

Many solicitors purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Your High Wycombe conveyancing quote should state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid. Any additional costs included in terms of engagement ought to be clearly defined. They only apply in cases where your solicitor must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Should I employ a solicitors firm who works with by my estate agent?

A.

The agent may suggest a conveyancing firm. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, an agent may select the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

If I am intending to buy in the parish of Leckhampstead, will we need a chancel search?

A.

Regardless of the High Wycombe parish you are purchasing in, the solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. Through some Parochial Church Councils have chosen to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected

to pay chancel repair dues recently will remain liability-free for new owners, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

Property environmental searches may be fine but in light of recent weather changes such as the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall are they comfort enough to determine sufficient information about the evolving High Wycombe future flood risk?

A.

Flood risk searches applied for by the High Wycombe conveyancing solicitor will include a more detailed search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.

If you remain still concerned you could get in touch with a neighbour or nearby Buckinghamshire flood damage expert, for example: New Dimension Loft Conversions, 108 Bowerdean Road, High Wycombe, HP13 6AZ Tel: 0500 616171.

Q.

When do I need to find a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

Whether buying or selling, the earlier in the process you can instruct a solicitor, the better. Instructing your solicitor sooner can reduce the likelihood of the transaction stalling.

Q.

We are buying a property where the seller has fitted inappropriate dormer windows on the home in High Wycombe which might exclude local conservation area criteria

A.

A lawyer will carry out searches ascertain if your new home is within a conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have essential permissions from the local authority.

Q.

For what reason does the conveyancing process take so long?

A.

The High Wycombe conveyancing process could be delayed for many reasons. In some cases, the delays are beyond the solicitors' power. We appreciate how difficult it can be to face these and endeavour to curtail their impact by proactively handling all enquiries.

Q.

We are buying a 1940s property within a High Wycombe conservation area, where can I uncover more data about the present state of repair of the area?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, maintain records of the state of repair of conservation areas in High Wycombe and across England as well as the vulnerability of the area. Conservation areas in High Wycombe are designated by Wycombe who govern things like private spaces to the thwarting of neglected buildings.
