Q.

How do I get a discount conveyancing estimate in Knaresborough?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this issue catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many law firms claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra fees are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Excited property buyers and sellers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct.

Q.

Would the house's fixtures and fittings include items like beds?

A.

Property buyers are often frustrated by confusion regarding which fixtures and fittings are included. In order to avoid later issues, a fixtures and fittings form should be completed and will save considerable frustration later.

Q.

Do I need a chancel liability search? We are buying next to a priory in Knaresborough.

A.

Where land in Knaresborough was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to cover the cost of repairs to church property in the locality. Owners

who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Church lands in the local area which may give rise to chancel liability include Goldsborough St Mary, Holy Trinity, St John the Baptist and Staveley All Saints.

Q.

Is a drainage search a fee or disbursement?

A.

Fees and disbursements ought to be clearly identified on your quote. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on to the buyer at cost.

Q.

Do we need to opt for the lawyer named by the agent?

A.

It is common practice for estate agents to refer a solicitor. Such referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

What does my searches cost?

A.

The cost of searches will vary considerably. Searches are paid out to a 3rd party, and are charged 'at cost'.

Q.

I would like to know which Knaresborough lenders your lawyers are able to work with. Which panels are you on?

A.

We have worked with all the major lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Knaresborough, including Mount Financial Services, 48 Farndale Rd, Knaresborough, HG5 0NY, Your Mortgage Ltd, Monkswell House/Manse Lane, Knaresborough, HG5 8NQ, and Wills & Mortgage Service, 10 Dentdale Dr, Knaresborough, HG5 0BE.

Q.

Does the HS2 route affect Sheldon property?

A.

Yes, HS2 is going to impact homes in the local authority of Birmingham City. An HS2 search will take into account concerns specific to this project, including a Sheldon house's distance from the line, along with details such as the speed of the train at the nearest point (affecting noise pollution).
