Q.

We need an affordable conveyancing quote. and what is included?

A.

Many conveyancers advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional fees may inflate your final bill. Any disbursements to be paid should be included on a quote

Q.

Which Lakenheath mortgage lenders do you work with?

A.

Homeward Legal have worked with all the major lenders financing Lakenheath homebuyers. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Mortgages Direct, 1-2 York Row, Wisbech, PE13 1EA, Bright Advice Ltd, 20 Market Pl, Ely, CB7 4NT, and Shire Financial Services Ltd, Surrey House/41 High St, Newmarket, CB8 8NA.

Q.

Will my conveyancing solicitor in Lakenheath report back on the risk and history of floods in the Lakenheath area?

A.

A necessary component in the conveyancing protocol involved in buying a home involves the conveyancing solicitor applying for conveyancing and environmental searches that set out specific information on the subject of Lakenheath area flood risk. Depending on the results, a conveyancing solicitor in Lakenheath may suggest a more involved (e.g. Landmark) flood risk search.

Q.

Do you recommend that we get a chancel search if I am purchasing in Lakenheath close by a church?

A.

Some owners in Lakenheath can be required to contribute towards upkeep of specific local church buildings. Several sources are used to determine liability in Lakenheath, including the Title Register database. Lakenheath church properties where chancel liability may apply include St Mary the Virgin.

Q.

We are intending to buy a unique building in a designated conservation area in Lakenheath. How does one locate data in regards to the current state of upkeep?

A.

Conservation areas in Lakenheath are set up by Forest Heath who manage things like the historic layout of roads to the halting of advertising hoardings. English Heritage, a government body, have produced records in relation to the state of conservation areas in Lakenheath and throughout England as well as the vulnerability.

Q.

Regarding the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since records began, we are apprehensive that conveyancing searches (environmental) might not be exacting enough?

A.

Property environmental searches handled by your Lakenheath conveyancing solicitor should include a far more specialist search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

If you are still anxious consider contacting a neighbour or local resident.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Lakenheath?

A.

Lakenheath is located in Forest of Dean District Council, Council Offices, High Street, Coleford, Gloucestershire, GL16 8HG, contact: 01594 810 000

Q.

Is there anything I can do to get out of paying out for SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty mitigation must be treated with caution by purchasers in Lakenheath, as such schemes are often uneconomical and unreliable. There have been a number of legal initiatives, such as for first-time buyers. Your solicitor will advise as to your eligibility.
