Honiton is the neighbouring hospital to Honiton.

Q.

We are trying to find low cost conveyancing in Honiton. How do we get a quote?

A.

Many online and high street firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing, but extra fees will be included in the terms of engagement. This small print is often not read by homeowners in a hurry. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should also be included on any quote for conveyancing in Honiton

Q.

Has antimony ever contaminated land in Honiton?

A.

Government policy is in place to control pollution, waste, water and chemical contamination. The local authority for Honiton will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Honiton?

A.

Honiton is located in East Devon District Council, Council Offices, Knowle, Sidmouth, Devon, EX10 8HL, Call: 01395 516 555

Q.

Why might Honiton property legal work for a purchase have so many delays?

Conveyancing could be obstructed, we, however, aim to diminish the cost of these delays, if it is possible to do so, by driving the transaction forward.

Q.

How will the Honiton conveyancer advise us on the risk of local flooding in Honiton?

A.

A conveyancing lawyer applies for environmental searches that will include Honiton flood risk information. In addition the property lawyer in Honiton may recommend a substantially more detailed local Honiton area flood search.

Q.

Should we select the property lawyer who works with by the estate agent?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will often refer a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, the agent may prefer to suggest the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

Following recent news about the flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England we are anxious that flood risk searches might not be sufficient?

A.

Conveyancing and environmental searches applied for by your Honiton lawyer should include a more in depth Landmark flood search if the risk warrants it.

It could be worth trying to speak to a neighbour for some more comfort.

Q.

How usual is gazumping?

A.

Gazumping happens when a property owner agrees to a buyer's offer and then refuses it in favour of a higher offer. Though being gazumped is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a danger. Instructing a law firm early, and even before acceptance of an offer is a key first step to reducing this risk.
