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.

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.

How much is the council tax on a Thirties converted property in Hoddesdon?

Q.

When we are buying in Hoddesdon, is it advisable that I get a chancel search?

A.

Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Hoddesdon Church council. As a consequence of a recent Act, interest over any affected land in Hoddesdon must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Hoddesdon church properties where a chancel search may be necessary include St Catherine & St Paul.

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.

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.

I am on a tight deadline, and would like arrange fast conveyancing, how can we speed things up?

A.

Finding a proactive and experienced property lawyer is crucial to buying faster. Ask these questions when identifying your conveyancer:

  • Do they use email?
  • Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote?
  • Do they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?

Q.

A number of mortgage specialists operate in Hoddesdon, including Nationwide Building Society Branch, 58 High St, Hoddesdon, EN11 8EJ.
