Q.

I need the cheapest conveyancing solicitors. What are the risks?

A.

Both high-street and online firms advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra costs will be included in small print that buyers often do not check. Extra charges listed in terms of engagement should be clearly defined. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

What is gazumping?

A.

Gazumping is not uncommon in Hurst and describes circumstances where a house seller approves an offer, only to refuse it, opting for a better offer. There is almost always a risk of gazumping. Consider instructing a solicitor as soon as you can to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.

Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Hurst, near Hurst?

A.

The solicitor instructed to handle the transaction could recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the building being bought is found. Through some Parochial Church Councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on owners of affected property, there is no guarantee that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not continue to be so, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

What can contaminate land in Hurst. Are they a concern?

A.

Land will be contaminated by a range of factors caused by man and by nature, like other sources of contaminated land. An environmental search should offer more information.

Q.

We are buying a maisonette in the boundary of conservation areas. How do we find more information in relation to the current state of repair?

A.

Conservation areas in Hurst are set up by East Hampshire who govern things like private spaces to the obstruction of poorly maintained pavements.

English Heritage keep information on the state of repair of conservation areas in England as well as the trend of the area.

Q.

Is manganese contamination often found in Hurst soil?

A.

Most top soils in Hurst have some degree of contamination, from industry, agriculture and the natural environment . Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including groundwater contaminants like bleach and industrial storage.

Q.

What are fixtures and fittings?

A.

House purchasers are frequently confused by the lack of detail regarding which fixtures and fittings are included. The seller and purchaser may unwittingly have completely different views on which items will be sold with the property; this makes resolving any confusion between buyer and seller on this issue so urgent.
