Q.

I need to find a discount conveyancing quote in Langford. What do we need to check for?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many homeowners paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many firms promote supposedly cheap conveyancing, however extra charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Additional charges listed in terms and conditions needs to be fair and reasonable. They be applicable if the lawyer is required to complete extra work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The conveyancing quote must also state any disbursements.

Q.

We are buying on a Langford brownfield site. Is the soil likely to be contaminated by waste minerals like beryllium?

A.

Langford agriculture or industry can cause topsoil contamination. Other sources of contaminated land include groundwater contaminants like hydrocarbons.

Q.

As a result of the fact that 4 of the top 5 wettest years recorded were in last 10-12 years we are concerned that environmental searches aren't thorough enough?

A.

A competent Langford lawyer will suggest that you get in depth conveyancing searches if the initial search establishes a any kind of risk of flooding in Langford

It could be worth trying to get in touch with a local resident for that further insight.

Q.

I am purchasing a building in Langford. Are there many conservation areas?

A.

The local areas located near Langford will include several areas of historic or architectural significance designated as conservation areas. A conveyancing lawyer will discuss what specific restrictions are in place and provide more details.

Q.

Will we need a house survey for our property purchase in Langford?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors strongly advise that the majority of purchasers in Langford book a RICS surveyor to undertake a survey. It is a fact that there are many concerns that will impact a property, that will not be addressed during the conveyancing process, which include flat roof leaks.

Q.

Alliance and Leicester will be our lender, what will we need to check?

A.

Some lenders have limited the firms who can act for them. For purchasers, this can result in significantly higher legal costs. Homeward Legal will act for many UK mortgage lenders so that you will not be required to pay your lender's conveyancing fees.

Q.

Does the report on the property's title compiled by the Langford solicitor report back on the amount of council tax for a building before exchange of contracts?

A.

A solicitor will consult with the appropriate Central Bedfordshire local authority to ask about the relevant council tax rates, which will then be added to the report on title. The correct rates for Langford are detailed online at the Central Bedfordshire local authority website. At the time of writing (06 July 2012) rates are as follows:
