Q.

How do I find affordable conveyancing?

A.

This topic catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional charges are frequently hidden in the small print. Busy, stressed sellers and buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Any disbursements should be included on a Leicestershire conveyancing quote

Q.

Will the Leicestershire conveyancing solicitor carry out official or personal searches on my home purchase?

A.

Your property lawyer will advise about the best type of search, depending on things like local authority turnaround times. For personal searches, a property solicitor will look for a search agent e.g Quantus, Oak Business Centre, 79-93 Ratcliffe Road, Sileby, LOUGHBOROUGH, Leicestershire, LE12 7PU Tel: 01509 812953 Fax: 01509 812814

Q.

If you are buying a house near a vicarage in Leicestershire, is it important to get a chancel liability search?

A.

The result of Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must pay for church repairs. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. Your conveyancing solicitor can provide more details.

  • Q.

    How do I check that a residence is in a conservation area?

    A.

    These areas indicate regions recognised as being of special architectural or historic interest. Ratby, Stoke Golding and Shelthorpe are among the conservation areas in Leicestershire. Your solicitor will offer more information.

    Q.

    The current owner has unfortunately added incongruous new windows which might break the Stoke Golding conservation area criteria.

    A.

    Your instructed conveyancing solicitor will carry out searches confirm if the property is located within a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have the essential consents from the local council.

    Q.

    When in the process do we need to instruct a solicitor to act for us?

    A.

    In the majority of situations, earlier is preferable. Promptly instructing a conveyancing solicitor for a purchase may mean that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process.

    Q.

    For a fast conveyancing process to buy a £ 820,000 property, what can we do to accelerate the transaction?

    A.

    Crucial to fast conveyancing is to use a experienced property lawyer. There are various jobs you, as the buyer, can do, such as, calling or emailing the property lawyer, and chase them if you suspect any delays, quickly completing and return any forms and arranging any finances require to complete the purchase.
