Q.

We need to find fixed rate Kenilworth conveyancing. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Both high-street and online firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional fees may be added into the terms of engagement, left unread by preoccupied buyers Additional charges which are listed in the terms should be fair.

Q.

We are purchasing with Nationwide, is there anything we need to know?

A.

Some lenders have decreased the number of firms on their approved panel, potentially creating increased legal costs for buyers. We, however, are able to act for all large UK mortgage lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay your lender's legal costs.

Q.

In regards to the serious flooding last year in the Midlands we are wondering whether environmental searches might not be sufficient?

Conveyancing and environmental searches applied for by the property solicitor in Kenilworth should include the more rigorous flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

Property purchasers sometimes also contact a neighbour or local resident for extra assurance.

Q.

Is the HS2 line going to impact Birmingham City?

A.

Yes, Phase 1 of HS2 is likely to be an issue in some properties in Birmingham's local authority. Some owners will have no choice but to accept the disruption accompanying works along the planned route. An HS2 search can give more detail.

Q.

My wife and I are planning to buy in Kenilworth. Can I verify if the building is in a conservation area?

A.

There are a range of conservation areas in or near Kenilworth. The benefits of such restrictions will include security that the surroundings are unlikely to change, but they adds to upkeep costs.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if I am buying in the parish of Edwinstowe with Carburton?

A.

The lawyer might recommend a chancel search, irrespective of the parish in which the house being purchased is found. Chancel repair can be imposed on owners of a house where parish councils may have not done so in the past, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.
