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.

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.

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.

What type of checks in respect to the risk of possible flooding in the Buckinghamshire area will the High Wycombe conveyancing solicitor actually apply for?

A.

A crucial part of the conveyancing protocol involves the lawyer carrying out environmental searches that offer details about the High Wycombe historical flood risk. A substantially more specialist conveyancing search, such as the Homecheck search, may be recommended by a High Wycombe conveyancing solicitor if the results of the initial conveyancing searches show a flood risk.

Q.

We are anticipating to move from our semi detached property in High Wycombe into a property in Hazlemere , when to choose a home removal firm?

A.

It is prudent to is for home movers to put off making arrangements with a removal firm until after both sides have contractually agreed your home moving date which commonly takes place following shortly after when contracts have exchanged.

Q.

Do any conservation areas in High Wycombe have the potential to affect our residence?

A.

Conservation areas safeguard areas defined as being of architectural or historic interest. Your conveyancing solicitor will provide more details, in regard to relevant conservation area restrictions in High Wycombe.

Q.

What does 'gazumping' involve?

A.

Gazumping happens when a purchaser's offer is, following agreement, later rejected by the property seller and then selecting another purchaser's offer. Though gazumping is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a risk. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a proactive solicitor as soon as possible.

Q.

Is there something I can do to get out of paying stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

Stamp duty reduction scheme is not recommended for purchases in High Wycombe, as such schemes are expensive and very risky. There have been several official schemes, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers. You will be able to confirm your eligibility for any such active initiatives with your solicitor..
