Q.

What will the overall charge be on the sale of a £571,000 property? We are looking for a discount conveyancing quote.

A.

Many online and high street property lawyers purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional fees are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

As a result of the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands we are wondering whether conveyancing and environmental searches might not be thorough enough?

A.

A diligent conveyancer in Keyworth will advise you to apply for informative food risk searches if the standard conveyancing searches flag up a risk of flooding in Keyworth

You could always contact a neighbour to get additional local history.

Q.

I have read about handling the legal work when selling a maisonette. Would it be wise to carry out the conveyancing myself without help.?

A.

Hypothetically speaking there is no argument at all why you should not complete the your own conveyancing yourself. The truth is however that a Keyworth conveyancer typically handles a large number of skilled tasks such as

chasing deeds or checking the lease many of which require a qualified solicitor. AT any rate legal practices are made responsible to take out indemnity insurance to insulate you from any carelessness.

Q.

With a freehold residence ready to buy, with no mortgage, how do we aim for a fast completion?

A.

Importantly, faster conveyancing is crucial to instruct a experienced solicitor. There are numerous tasks you could do to speed up the legal work, including, keeping in regular contact with your solicitor, responding to all correspondence via the fastest means and confirming your mortgage offer.

Q.

We are buying a Keyworth home with Basinghall Finance - is there anything I need to know?

A.

Some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', which may result in greater conveyancing costs for buyers. Homeward Legal, though, are able to act on behalf of the vast majority of lenders in the UK to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Which actual search enquiries should a solicitor in Keyworth conduct on a Keyworth building?

A.

Normal procedure is to get Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW), Environmental and Gypsum Mining Search and perhaps specific searches for example Limestone Search.

Q.

If Keyworth land is found to be contaminated, can we have the soil cleaned up cheaply?

A.

Remediation is often feasible, but costly. Speak to Elliott's Turf, Melton Rd, Keyworth, Nottingham, NG12 5PJ for more details.

Q.

Should I get a chancel liability search? We are purchasing a flat near a church built in the 16th Century in Keyworth.

A.

The result of a court case between a parish council and owners of neighbouring farmland liable for church repairs confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. A chancel search confirms that such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. Keyworth church lands where chancel liability may apply include St Mary Magdalene Church, Nottinghamshire.
