Q.

How do I find the cheapest Hoddesdon conveyancing quote?

A.

Various solicitors offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional fees are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. Additional charges should be fair and reasonable and be applied only where the solicitor must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

I am planning on buying an extended maisonette in a designated conservation area in Hoddesdon. How do I find details relating to the state of upkeep?

A.

English Heritage keep a detailed list about the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas along with the vulnerability of the area. Local conservation areas are created by the local authority (Broxbourne) who oversee conservation area concerns from property boundaries to the prevention of derelict buildings.

Q.

I am purchasing a property with Saffron Building Society, is there anything we need to be aware of?

A.

Your mortgage lender will require legal work to be performed on their behalf. Some lenders have reduced the number of firms able to act for them. We, fortunately, can act for many mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

The local agent has offered the law firm which they often use. Is it advisable to instruct this firm?

A.

It is commonplace for agents in Chandlers Ford to endorse a solicitor, however, these referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as it may be the case that the agent recommends the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

Myself and my partner are interested in purchasing in Hoddesdon. How can we find out whether the building is in a conservation area?

A.

These areas categorise areas designated as being of 'special architectural and historic interest'. Your conveyancing solicitor will be able to offer more information.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Hoddesdon?

A.

Hoddesdon is located in Broxbourne Borough Council, Bishops' College, Churchgate, Cheshunt, Hertfordshire, EN8 9XQ, contact: 01992 785 555

Q.

Is zinc soil contamination likely in Hoddesdon?

A.

Policies are in place to control pollution, waste, water and chemical contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including groundwater contamination and chlorinated solvents.

Q.

Is contaminated land an issue in Hoddesdon?

A.

Residential property in Hoddesdon will be contaminated by many naturally-occurring factors, and an environmental search should clarify to what extent a specific property can be impacted by Hoddesdon contaminants like existing and proposed overhead electricity cables and sand or clay quarries. Contamination can be caused by local landfill sites, including Hoddesdon Quarry, Cock Lane, Hertfordshire, EN11 8LS.
