Q.

How do I get the best rates for conveyancing in Highbridge for a £463,000 house?

A.

Many online and high street law firms claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional costs can increase the solicitor's invoice. Fees listed in terms of engagement should be fair. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

We are on a very limited budget. Will doing the conveyancing on a DIY basis without the help of a lawyer in Highbridge possibly save any money?

A.

There is no reason why a home mover cant go down that route and look after the bulk of the legal work without the help of a specialist property lawyer in Highbridge. That said, a property lawyer carries out a long list of skilled tasks ranging from chasing replies to requisitions or interpreting the lease which need experience.

Above all else have a go conveyancers will be working without relevant cover which legal practices are compelled to carry.

Q.

At what stage should one organise a removals firm?

A.

The most sensible course of action is for home movers to put off booking a removal company until such time as everyone has formally agreed a formal

moving date that occurs once contracts have exchanged. Local removals companies include Your Move Removals, Fourwinds Huntspill Road, Highbridge, TA9 3DE Tel: 01278 792858 or Leakers Removals & Container Storage Ltd, Unit 1A Brue Way, Highbridge, TA9 4AW Call: 01278 795549.

Q.

What causes sale conveyancing legal work to be so delayed?

A.

The legal work involved in buying or selling Highbridge property can be delayed, we, however, endeavour to minimise the impact of these delays where feasible to do so by driving the transaction forward. Common delays include difficulties with mortgage finance.

Q.

We are purchasing in Highbridge, and would like to check if there are any conservation areas.

A.

Areas deemed to be of historic or architectural significance, such as country house estates, will be designated as conservation areas. The local council will offer more information about local conservation areas, and the conveyancing lawyer handling your purchase address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Highbridge?

A.

Highbridge is located in Sedgemoor District Council, Bridgwater House, King Square, Bridgwater, Somerset, TA6 3AR, phone: 0845 408 2540

Q.

How is Highbridge contaminated land investigated?

A.

Land in Highbridge is contaminated by a broad range of natural causes, and an environmental search should reveal if a specific plot of land can be impacted by contaminants in the area like sand or clay quarries and pollution incidents.

Q.

How can we guard against getting gazumped?

A.

Gazumping is common across England and Wales and describes when a property owner approves one buyer's offer, only to refuse it in favour of a better offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a chance of being gazumped. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct your property solicitor as early as possible.
