Q.

What will the overall charge be on the sale of a £98,000 home? We are looking for affordable conveyancing.

A.

Various property lawyers promote so-called cheap conveyancing, but extra fees will be included in small print. Additional fees which are listed in terms of engagement needs to be reasonable and clear.

Will our legal fees have any hidden fees?

There are several conservation areas in or near Houghton Regis. Houghton Regis itself is named as a conservation area. Your conveyancing lawyer will be able to provide more details and address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area, regarding specific conservation areas in Houghton Regis.

Q.

The current owner appears to have fitted ill-suited cladding on the maisonette which I think might infringe the Towthorpe conservation area guidelines.

Local authority LLC1 searches carried out by the solicitor during the legal process should determine whether the property is inside a designated conservation area proof of the appropriate permissions for changes to the property will be asked for.

A.

Your solicitor would will advocate that home vendors hold off booking a removals company until contracts have exchanged as in advance of this in all probability an agreed home moving date wont have been confirmed.

Q.

Are there many buyers in Houghton Regis gazumped?

A.

Gazumping occurs when a property seller approves an offer, only to later refuse it in favour of a greater offer. It may happen weeks into a sale. There is almost always a risk of gazumping. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing a proactive solicitor as soon as possible.
