Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £303,000 house?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many homeowners paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many law firms advertise cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra costs will be included in the small print that homeowners often do not check. Additional costs should be fair and reasonable and be applicable if your lawyer must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements should also be clearly stated on your quote

Q.

Are there any areas of conservation in Ingatestone?

A.

With 9300 conservation areas in England, the areas around Ingatestone will include several areas of architectural merit designated as protected. Your lawyer will be able to advise further and confirm potential liability for unauthorised works, regarding specific conservation areas in Ingatestone.

Q.

The owner looks to have installed unsympathetic roof antenna to the property in Ingatestone which may break nearby conservation area guidelines

A.

Your solicitor is required to see whether the property is affected by a conservation area and whether any modifications have requisite consents from the local planning authority. If no authority consents be supplied, your solicitor will advise you of all options such as requesting an indemnity insurance policy or obtaining retrospective permission.

Q.

What kind of enquiries in respect to the risk of possible flooding at Essex will the Ingatestone solicitor give an account of?

Q.

Should I make use of the solicitor referred by my estate agent?

A.

It is not uncommon for agents to endorse a law firm to handle your conveyancing. These referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as it may be the case that the agent recommends whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most suitable for you.

Q.
