Q.

I am looking for a cheap solicitor to own a house. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this topic catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra fees will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Additional fees listed in your solicitor's terms should be clearly defined and only be applied if the solicitor must complete additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Has soil in Langport been contaminated by mercury (Hg)?

A.

A.

Q.

My husband and I are buying in Langport. Can we check if the house is in a designated conservation area?

Buyers in Langport should be aware of numerous local conservation areas. A solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities and be able to offer more information.

Q.

When in the process do we need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

In the vast majority of cases, the earlier in the process you can instruct a conveyancing solicitor, the better. Early instruction of a conveyancing firm to act on your Langport sale or purchase for a purchase means that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found.

Q.

What can a Langport conveyancing lawyer recommend if the property I hope to buy is inside a South Somerset planning authority conservation area that has out of place satellite dishes fitted to it?

A.

South Somerset planning authority Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search carried out by a property lawyer during the conveyancing process will check whether the property is within a designated conservation area proof of consent for additions to the property will be requested.
