Q.

We are trying to find a discount conveyancing quote in Hitchin. as we are on a budget.

A.

The confusion over this point catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many law firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Your Hitchin conveyancing quote should state any disbursements to be paid.

Q.

In a few weeks I am hoping to move out of our terraced building in Hitchin to a newer abode in Hertford . What is the best point to instruct a home removal company?

A.

We would usually recommend that home buyers and sellers wait arranging removals until the point where exchange of contracts because a final date will not have been agreed. For a local Hertfordshire company Allens, 63 Hermitage Road, Hitchin, SG5 1DB Telephone: 01462 617033 or A Waters & Sons, 47 Bury Mead Road, Hitchin, SG5 1RT on 01462 452777.

Q.

What will contaminate land in Hitchin. Will they be thoroughly investigated?

A.

Property in Hitchin may be contaminated by a broad range of factors caused by man and by nature, and an environmental search should clarify to what extent a specific property can be impacted by contaminants in the region such as hazardous and regulated installations. Contamination in Hitchin can be caused by local waste sites, such as Vicars Grove Pit, Vicars Grove Pit, Hertfordshire, SG4 7HZ.

Q.

Does your property lawyer in Hitchin get any property conveyancing searches on the Hertfordshire Edwardian detached townhouse I am intending to purchase?

A.

Normal procedure will be to get Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environmental and perhaps specific searches such as Chancel Search.

Q.

Why can Hitchin purchase conveyancing have so many delays?

A.

The Hitchin conveyancing process may suffer setbacks for many reasons. Some delays are out of a solicitor's hands. Homeward Legal strive to curtail their cost whenever we can by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible.

Q.

My estate agent has put forward the property solicitor who they generally use. Do we need to use this firm?

A.

It is commonplace for estate agents to suggest a solicitor. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, the agent may prefer to suggest the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

If I am buying in Hitchin on the same street as land owned by the church, is it important that we get a chancel liability search?

A.

Owners of property in a neighbourhood near church property in the locality may be required to subsidise repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. As a result of the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Your conveyancing lawyer will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Church lands in this area which may give rise to chancel liability include Holy Saviour, St Faith, St Mark's Church, and St Mary's.

Q.

I am purchasing a restored chapel in the parish of Meppershall. Will a chancel search be necessary?

A.

A solicitor instructed to handle the transaction might recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the house being bought is located. Although some parish councils have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on owners of affected property, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish which has not imposed liability will not automatically be the case for future owners.
