Q.

How do I get fixed rate conveyancing?

This issue catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote cheap conveyancing quotes, however extra charges will be included in the terms. Charges ought to be clearly defined. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

As a consequence of the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands I am apprehensive that conveyancing and environmental searches won't be detailed enough?

A.

Flood searches applied for by the Kingsthorpe property solicitor should include the more thorough search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.

If you remain still nervous it may be worth trying to contact a future neighbour.

Q.

Kingsthorpe solicitors order formal conveyancing searches when they are acting for a purchase client, which actual ones?

A.

If buying and getting a mortgage the lender will expect particular searches, including the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search and Environmental and perhaps specific local searches for instance Company Searches.

Q.

Is it recommended to get a chancel search? I am buying close by parsonage land in Kingsthorpe.

A.

The outcome of a landmark case 10 years ago confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Terms used in a property's name, like 'abbeylands', may indicate chancel liability. The solicitor acting on your behalf will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Kingsthorpe church lands where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Mark, Team Ministry and Team Minstry.

Q.

We are taking out a mortgage with Nationwide Building Society, what will I need to know?

A.

Traditionally, solicitors could carry out mortgage-related work for most lenders. House buyers should be aware that a small number of lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. For property buyers, this can result in significantly increased legal costs. Homeward Legal can act for many lenders in the UK so that you will not be required to pay the lender's legal fees.
