Q.

How do I find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Kettering?

A.

Both high-street and online law firms advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs may be added into the terms, left unread by preoccupied home owners Extra charges listed in terms of engagement should be reasonable and clear.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if I am purchasing in the parish of Norton, near Kettering?

A.

The property lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish in which the residence being purchased is found. In older areas of Kettering, chancel repair may be imposed on the current owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

Bank of Scotland is our mortgage lender, is there anything we need to check?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly greater conveyancing costs. We can act for most mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Are Kettering any conservation areas going to affect us?

A.

There are several conservation areas in or near Kettering. Burton Latimer, Desborough and Rothwell are among the conservation areas in Kettering. The local council will provide more details about local conservation areas, and the conveyancing solicitor handling your purchase address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.

Q.

Which local factors can affect land in Kettering. Are these checked for thoroughly?

A.

A range of contaminants caused by natural and human-influenced issues may spoil property, and an environmental search will reveal the extent to which a particular property may be affected by Kettering contaminants including local historic industrial processes.

Q.

Does Homeward Legal conduct property auction conveyancing in Kettering?

A.

We are able to work with auction buyers and sellers. Our solicitors have worked for numerous successful bidders at regional auctions such as Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Experienced auction buyers always pick a qualified property conveyancing lawyer as rapidly as possible to allow time for a thorough investigation of the legal documents prior to the auction.

Subsequently, immediately after the date of the auction your now prepared lawyer is totally ready for speedily completing the legal work in a as tight time frame as required .

Q.

Will we need a chancel search? We are buying a Kettering home by parsonage grounds.

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. Some names or words such as 'glebe' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Kettering churches where a chancel search may be necessary include St Peter & St Paul, St Peter & St Paul, St Andrew's Church and St Peter & St Paul.

Q.

In a few months we are hoping to be finally moving from our terraced home on the outskirts of Kettering to a maisonette in Duston , at what point to choose a removals firm?

A.

We would tend to advise that house movers wait booking a removals company until the point where the contracts have exchanged as in all probability an absolute move date will not have been fixed. Local home mover companies include A1 Move It, 113 Bath Road, Kettering, NN16 8ND on 01536 510245 or C & K, 19 Harwood Dr, Kettering, NN16 9FD Phone: 01536 480099.
