Q.

Would it be imprudent to take care of DIY conveyancing without help.

A.

Technically there are no arguments why a home buyer cant go down that route and undertake the bulk of the conveyancing yourself. That said, a conveyancing solicitor is familiar with a large number of skilled tasks ranging from chasing replies to requisitions or collating and preparing contract and package which really need a qualified professional. Moreover solicitors are compelled to carry cover to protect you in the event of any losses you encounter.

Q.

Is it necessary to get a chancel search? I am buying in Hindhead.

A.

As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Hindhead which was once owned by a 'lay rectors' can be liable for repairs to an old church building. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Hindhead properties is likely to exist. Church lands in the area which may give rise to chancel liability include St Alban's.

Q.

What type of flood plain searches about the risk and history of local flooding in the Surrey region will my conveyancer in Hindhead actually do?

A.

A residential property solicitor will carry out standard property conveyancing searches that should include Hindhead flood risk information. In addition a conveyancing solicitor in Hindhead might possibly suggest a more involved (e.g. Landmark) in-depth flood search.

Q.

Which government body has overall responsibility for overseeing the status of repair of the conservation areas in Hindhead?

A.

Conservation areas in Hindhead are specified by Waverley who preserve everything from including things like new developments, rear extensions and paths.

English Heritage keep a detailed list of the state of conservation areas along with the trend.

Q.

Would acquiring a house survey be sensible when we are purchasing a property, irrespective of its condition, in Hindhead?

A.

It is strongly advised that Hindhead property purchasers arrange a RICS surveyor. It is a fact that there are many defects that can affect a property. These include poor ventilation, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

Is a mining search passed on at cost?

A.

It may be unclear whether a cost is a disbursement or a fee. This charge, for example, is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on at cost.

Q.

My agent has suggested the law firm which they often use. Is it a good idea to use this solicitor?

A.

It is common for agents to recommend a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, it may be the case that the agent recommends whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best solicitor for your needs.
