Q.

How do I get a cheap solicitor quote for purchasing a home?

A.

This catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Applicable disbursements should also be clearly stated on any quote for conveyancing in HorleyHomeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What type of environmental conveyancing searches as respects the uncertain risk of a flood to properties in Surrey will the lawyer in Horley be able to conduct?

Q.

your lawyer will consider a local search company like DevAssist, First Point, Buckingham Gate, Gatwick Airport, Crawley, West Sussex, RH6 0NT Tel: 01293897117 Fax: 01293897119

Q.

We are buying a 1950s house in the middle of a conservation area. Where can I find data relating to the standard of repair?

A.

English Heritage now maintain a list about the state of conservation areas in Horley and throughout England as well as the trend of the area. Conservation areas in Horley are designated by the local Mole Valley planning authority, who regulate everything from whether trees can be cut down to the avoidance of poorly maintained roads.

Q.

We are buying in Horley on a newly development former industrial site. What should we do regarding nickel soil contamination?

A.

Considerable measures are taken on a national level to remediate soil contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as food-processing waste and groundwater contamination, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

What do searches apply to?

A.

These searches are a set of questions raised by the purchaser's property solicitor, such as a tin mining search. These will not be a substitute for a building survey and will not identify structural issues.

Q.

What does a Horley conveyancing lawyer do when the building I am planning to buy is inside the boundary of a local authority conservation area and has unfitting roof aerials fitted?

A.

A property solicitor will make enquiries to ascertain whether your new home is located within a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have the necessary permission from the local authority. In the event that no necessary permissions be supplied the solicitor will advise you of the alternatives which include getting an indemnity insurance policy or seeking retrospective consent from the planning authority.

Q.

How soon do we need to arrange a solicitor in Horley?

A.

The short answer is, as soon as possible. Promptly instructing a solicitor for a sale can mean that relevant information can be sourced sooner (this is particularly true for leasehold properties), whereas if you are buying you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer.
