Q.

How do we find low cost conveyancing in Ledbury?

A.

Several firms claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional costs may be added into the terms and conditions. Additional costs listed in the small print should be fair and reasonable and only apply to matters if the lawyer is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

May charges for the conveyancing include any extra costs?

A.

Regrettably, buyers must be on their guard for considerable extra costs hidden in small print. We will not charge any additional fees. Some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.

Q.

I am interested in purchasing in Ledbury. Can we find out if the property is in a designated conservation area?

A.

These areas conserve regions designated as being of historical merit. Your property solicitor will offer more information and discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.

Q.

We are buying on a new development brownfield site. Could the topsoil be contaminated by industrial waste like rubidium (Rb)?

A.

Some metal contamination may have occurred throughout Ledbury, but contaminated land areas are labelled as such if the danger to the environment is judged to be too great.

Metal contamination of topsoil in Ledbury is more likely to occur near waste treatment sites. Data on other contaminants, like herbicides, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

I am hoping to move from our terraced property in Ledbury to a property in Kington . What is the right point to choose a home removal firm?

A.

Most solicitors tend to advocate that you hold off arranging removals until the point where contracts have exchanged as an actual date wont have been firmed up. Why not try Foleys, 39 Bye St, Ledbury, HR8 2AA Call: 01531 632471 or Ledbury Removals Ltd, Unit 4 Lower Rd Trading Est, Ledbury, HR8 2DJ Telephone: 01531 633322.

Q.

Our estate agent in Bourton on the Water has named a lawyer. Is it risky to instruct this firm?

A.

Estate agent recommendations are a not uncommon route for buyers to find a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may select whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

What will the Ledbury property solicitor advise if the home I hope to purchase is inside the boundary of a conservation area in Forest of Dean local authority which appears to have conspicuous stone cladding fitted?

A.

Forest of Dean council LLC1 searches carried out by a property lawyer will ascertain whether the property is inside a designated conservation area proof of planning consent for additions to the property will be required.

Q.

Do you recommend that I get a chancel search? I am buying a Ledbury property close by a 16th Century rectory manor.

A.

Property owners near to nearby church property may be required to pay for repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Following the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land in Ledbury must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Ledbury church lands include St Katherine's Chapel and St Michael.
