Q.

How do I get the best conveyancing rates in Hunstanton for a £745,000 property?

A.

The confusion over this topic catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors promote theoretically cheap conveyancing. However additional costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement.

Q.

Do we need to opt for a law firm suggested by our agent?

A.

Estate agent referrals are a not uncommon route for buyers to find a solicitor. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, there is a risk that an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

I am selling in Hunstanton, and have had a conveyancing quote from you. May we end up paying any hidden charges when the purchase completed?

A.

No. Homeward Legal do not charge any hidden extra charges. It may be the case that your solicitor recommends some additional work, but any fees for this work will only be incurred with your knowledge.

Q.

Is contaminated land in Hunstanton a concern?

A.

Many of contaminants may ruin property, and an environmental search will reveal the extent to which a specific plot of land can be impacted by contaminants like local waste transfer sites and other land contamination.

Q.

Has soil in Hunstanton been contaminated by chromium?

A.

Some metal contamination may have occurred throughout Hunstanton, but if significant harm could be caused to people or protected species by the contamination, it is likely to be labelled contaminated land. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as groundwater contamination.

Q.

Will we need searches for chancel liability if we are buying close by a church constructed around the 12th Century in Hunstanton?

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. Parochial Church Councils in Hunstanton must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Church properties in the area include St Edmund and St Mary.

Q.

I am purchasing a 1940s flat in the middle of a conservation area. How do I find details on the standard of upkeep of the Hunstanton conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas are set up by the local authority (King's Lynn and West Norfolk) who are responsible for everything from property boundaries to the obstruction of poorly maintained roads.

English Heritage have put together details on the state of conservation areas in addition to the trend.

Q.

Lawyers in Hunstanton order standard property if acting for a home purchaser - which specific searches?
