Q.

How do we find a cheap solicitor quote to own a residence?

A.

Both high-street and online conveyancers offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Charges included in the terms should be fair. They only apply in cases where the solicitor is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements ought to be defined on the quote. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

We are going to buy a converted maisonette in one of the conservation areas, where can I lay my hands on more data on the state of upkeep?

A.

English Heritage administer information about the state of conservation areas in addition to the vulnerability. Conservation areas in Kempshott are designated by the local authority (Basingstoke and Deane) who police things like the upkeep of public spaces to poorly maintained roads.

Q.

Following recent news about the fact that 4 of the top 5 wettest years recorded were in last 12 years we are thinking that property environmental searches won't be detailed enough?

Environmental searches applied for by your conveyancing solicitor in Kempshott will include the far more in depth search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

If you are anxious why not try to speak to a close neighbour.

Q.

If my family are buying close by priory grounds in Kempshott, is it important that we get a chancel search?

A.

Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Kempshott property likely to be affected. Several sources are used to determine liability in Kempshott, including county histories. Ecclesiastical properties in this area include St Mark.

Q.

Is a postage, photocopying and phone calls fee a fee or disbursement?

A.

Some solicitors pass off additional costs as disbursements. It is not always obvious whether a cost is a disbursement or not, and if it should be included. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in your conveyancing quote.

Q.

We are buying a home in Stratfield Saye. Is a chancel search specified?

A.

Your conveyancer might recommend that a chancel search be ordered, regardless of the parish in which the home being purchased is located. In older areas of Kempshott, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the owners of a home where parish councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

Does a lawyer in Kempshott conduct any conveyancing searches on the Hampshire forties detached flat I am buying?

A.

The routine legal protocol will be to get Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environmental and occasionally specific local Kempshott searches for example Cheshire Brine Search.

Q.

Halifax will be our lender, what will I need to be aware of?

A.

In some cases, lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, potentially creating higher legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of all major lenders.
