Q.

On the purchase of a £243k property, what will be the fees? We are trying to find a low cost conveyancing quote.

A.

This affects many buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process, and many conveyancers advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra fees will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement which unwary buyers fail to check. The quote must also state any disbursements to be paid.

Q.

Is contaminated land in Kirkby In Furness an issue for the majority of houses?

A.

A wide range of contaminants caused by natural causes and human activities may significantly reduce the value of residential property in Kirkby In Furness, and an environmental search will confirm if a specific plot of land may be impacted by contaminants in the region like proximity to landfill sites and hazardous substances in the ground.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Kirkby In Furness?

A.

Kirkby In Furness is located in South Lakeland District Council, South Lakeland House, Lowther Street, Kendal, Cumbria, LA9 4UF, phone: 0845 050 4434

Q.

Do I need to get a surveyor to check for issues affecting this home purchase?

A.

We advise that you instruct a house surveyor to carry out a survey if buying in Kirkby In Furness. There can be a range of defects that can negatively affect a property, for example flat roof leaks and rotten roof timbers, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

We have taken out a quote from you. Could we be billed any hidden charges?

A.

Homeward Legal do not charge any hidden extra costs. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, meaning that your final bill could be much higher.

Q.

What will the Kirkby In Furness conveyancing lawyer do if the home is in a local authority conservation area and has an un-consented roof aerials added?

A.

South Lakeland local authority LLC1 searches conducted by a solicitor will find out if the property is in a designated conservation area and any evidence of planning authority consent for modifications will be requested. If no appropriate consents can be provided your solicitor will inform you of all options which can include buying an indemnity insurance or seeking retrospective consent from South Lakeland local authority.

Q.

We plan to buy a residence in the parish of Beetham. Should we get a chancel search?

A.

The property lawyer may suggest that a chancel search is ordered, irrespective of the parish where the building being bought is found. Through some church councils have chosen to charge chancel repairs on new owners of affected property, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not continue to be so.

Q.

Has topsoil in Kirkby In Furness been contaminated by copper (Cu)?

A.

Kirkby In Furness agriculture or industry can cause soil contamination. The local authority for Kirkby In Furness will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.
