Q.

How do we get a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

Many online and high street property lawyers offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra fees are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Fees should be fair and reasonable. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

It seems that caesium soil contamination may be an issue in Kingsbridge. Please advise.

A.

Kingsbridge industrial or agricultural can cause topsoil contamination. Metal contamination of topsoil in Kingsbridge is more likely to occur near waste treatment sites. Data on other contaminants, like water contaminants such as petrol and radioactive waste, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Do you need a chancel search? We are buying on the same street as a church built in around the 17th Century in Kingsbridge.

A.

Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Kingsbridge Church council. A chancel search is used to check that such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. Kingsbridge ecclesiastical properties where a chancel search may be necessary include St Edmund King and Martyr.

Q.

What will contaminate land in Kingsbridge. Are these properly investigated?

A.

Many of contaminants caused by human activities may impair residential property in Kingsbridge, and an environmental search will confirm that a property can be impacted by contaminants in the area like proximity to landfill sites and masts or pylons. Meadow Wood, Pooley Lane, Devon, TQ7 3QRcould be a local cause of land contamination in Kingsbridge.

Q.

Property environmental searches are ascertained from past data but when one considers climate change e g the flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England are they actually good enough to advise us sufficient information about the local Kingsbridge flood risk?

A.

A good Kingsbridge lawyer will suggest that you apply for conveyancing and environmental searches if the standard searches flag up any kind of risk.

Why not also get in touch with a close neighbour for additional confidence.

Q.

What does the cost of searches total?

A.

The cost of searches varies noticeably, depending on the particular searches ordered. Conveyancing searches are will be charged at cost.

Q.

What particular property searches does my lawyer in Kingsbridge carry out when acting on a Kingsbridge house?

A.

The normal legal protocol is to get Local Authority, Drainage Search, Environment Search, Tin Search and Clay Search, and possibly specific searches for instance Cheshire Brine Search.

Q.

When in the process is it appropriate to instruct a conveyancer to handle our transaction?

A.

If you use a conveyancing firm offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as the legal work can commence very early in the process. Instructing your solicitor sooner for a purchase allows you will the details of your Kingsbridge solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers.
