The nearest train station to Hinckley is Hinckley, almost a mile away. Hinckley's closest airport is Coventry Airport (12 miles). Birmingham Airport is 17 miles, and East Midlands Airport is 20 miles away.

Hinckley is nearby at 2m of the M69 Junction 1 Eastbound.

Q.

We need affordable conveyancing in Hinckley. What do I need to check for?

A.

Numerous law firms purport to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional costs are often hiding in the small print. The quote should, in addition, define costs to be paid to third parties, such as the local authority, (disbursements). Any extra charges ought to be reasonable and only be applied if your solicitor must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Is it advisable that I get a chancel liability search? I am purchasing a Hinckley property by a church built in around the 12th Century.

A.

Property owners in Hinckley may be subject to chancel repair liability. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Church lands in this area include Holy Trinity, St Francis, St John the Evangelist and St Mary.

Q.

Should I opt for the conveyancing solicitor referred by the local agent?

Many agents have referral deals with solicitors where they refer clients to them. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, it may be the case that the agent recommends the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

Why does conveyancing be so delayed?

A.

Conveyancing could suffer setbacks. We see how frustrating such delays may be and work hard to minimise the burden of these delays by using fast search providers. Delays can include slow solicitors acting for the other side.

Q.

What would my searches cost?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches on a house in Hinckley does vary, depending on the specific searches which have been ordered. Searches are charged at cost.

Q.

We are buying on a brownfield site. Possibly barium soil contamination may be an issue.

A.

Soil contamination is carefully monitored. Also considering issues such as herbicides, contaminants affecting Hinckley property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if I am purchasing in the parish of Walton le Wolds, near Hinckley?

A.

Regardless of the Hinckley parish in which you are buying, the conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search is taken out. Chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the current owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

How soon should we get a conveyancing solicitor in Hinckley?

A.

In the majority of situations, the earlier in the process you can instruct a firm, the better. Instructing your solicitor sooner for a purchase means that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found.
