Q.

How do I find low cost conveyancing?

Many firms claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing. However extra charges will be included in the small print. A conveyancing quote must also state any disbursements to be paid. Any extra costs listed in terms of engagement should be fair and reasonable. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

A.

These areas preserve regions defined as being of special architectural or historic interest. The local council will be able to advise further about local conservation areas, and the lawyer handling your purchase should discuss what specific restrictions are in place.

Q.

Will our conveyancing solicitor in Kidlington inform me about the cost of council tax on a Band A maisonette prior to exchange of contracts?

A.

A solicitor will speak to the council to find out the correct council tax band and rates, which will then be included in the conveyancing report on title. The correct rates for Kidlington are set out on the Cherwell local authority site. Currently, 07 October 2012, rates are as follows:

Q.

We need to complete this property purchase as soon as possible, how do we get a fast conveyancing process?

A.

It is a truism that finding a proactive property lawyer is key fast conveyancing. There are several tasks you, as the purchaser, could do. These include:

  • pushing the property lawyer to begin enquiries as soon as possible
  • promptly answering your property lawyer's questions (by email if possible)
  • if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can

Q.

Do we need to be concerned about fixtures and fittings?

A.

Buyers are frequently confused by the vagueness surrounding fixtures and fittings. Fixtures and fittings are often not considered, which makes a fixtures and fittings form so useful.

Q.

Where can I go about find out whether the Kidlington conservation area is neglected?

A.

Conservation areas are specified by the local Cherwell planning authority, who oversee everything from including things like billboards, addition of PVC windows and whether trees can be cut down. English Heritage, a government body, keep information in relation to the state of conservation areas as well as the vulnerability of the area.
