Q.

I need to find discount conveyancing. What do I need to check for?

A.

Confusion over this topic affects many buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many firms purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms, left unread by preoccupied buyers Extras should be reasonable. They be applicable solely where the lawyer is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements to be paid ought to be listed on a quote. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What does a Huntingdon property lawyer do when the home I hope to buy is in a local authority conservation area and has inappropriate doors fitted?

A.

Huntingdonshire planning authority LLC1 searches conducted by your Huntingdon conveyancing solicitor during the conveyancing process should find out whether the property is inside a conservation area and evidence of permission for changes to the property will be asked for.

Q.

Will a Huntingdon solicitor advise us on the risk of local flooding around Huntingdon?

A.

An important part of the legal due diligence procedure of purchasing a property involves the lawyer carrying out conveyancing and environmental searches for information with respect to Huntingdon flood risk area. A substantially more involved Cambridgeshire database search, for instance the Landmark search, may be advised by a Huntingdon property solicitor if in the event that the initial conveyancing searches show a flood risk.

Q.

Is contaminated land a concern for most homes in Huntingdon?

A.

Property in Huntingdon may be contaminated by a broad range of environmental concerns. Contaminants such as existing and proposed overhead electricity cables should be considered as part of the appropriate search. Contamination can be caused by Huntingdon waste sites, including Brickyar Farm, Cow Lane, Cambridgeshire, PE29 2RJ.

Q.

What particular search enquiries does a lawyer in Huntingdon carry out when instructed on a Huntingdon property?

A.

The normal legal protocol will be to get Local Authority, Drainage Search and Environmental and occasionally specific searches, which might include Planning.

Q.

Will my professional conveyancing solicitor in Huntingdon report back to me about the amount to be paid of the council tax on a Band E flat before completing on the purchase?

A.

Your property lawyer will speak to the council to find out the latest council tax band and rates, which should then be added to the title report. The latest council tax charges for residents of Huntingdon are published on the Huntingdonshire council site. On, 31 January 2013, rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £1,013.00
  • Band B - £1,182.00

  • Band D - £1,519.00
  • Band E - £1,857.00
  • Band F - £2,195.00
  • Band G - £2,532.00
  • Band H - £3,039.00

Q.

What are fixtures and fittings?

A.

House purchasers are frequently confused by the lack of detail regarding which fixtures and fittings should be included with a property. Assumptions relating to fixtures and fittings could vary wildly between the buyers and sellers; this makes the completion of a fixtures and fittings form essential.

Q.

If I buy a book about handling the legal work as a buyer of a home , Would it be an unrealistic idea to take care of the legals without any help?

A.

If you want to , you can do the legal process without formally instructing Huntingdon solicitor.

Naturally solicitors would suggest that this choice is a very risky approach as DIY conveyancers are not covered by sufficient indemnity insurance which all legal practices are required to take out.
