Q.

How do I get the best conveyancing rates for a £640,000 residence?

A.

Several law firms offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, however extra fees are often hiding in the small print which unwary property buyers and sellers fail to check. Costs found in terms of engagement needs to be reasonable.

Q.

Would ordering a survey be necessary when we are purchasing a property in Lightwater?

A.

Homeward Legal suggest that all purchasers book a property survey. It is a fact that there are a range of concerns that will impact a property, such as insect infestation and wet rot. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

What do fixtures and fittings include?

A.

Chiefly, fixtures are permanently fixed to floors, walls and ceilings and fixtures are free-standing. A fixtures and fittings form can avoid any disputes and will save considerable frustration later.

Q.

What environmental concerns can contaminate land in Lightwater. Are these thoroughly investigated?

A.

Lightwater property could be contaminated by a broad range of environmental concerns, like potentially contaminative use of nearby land and pollution incidents. An environmental search will give more detail.

Q.

Do I need a chancel search if my family are buying in Lightwater on the same road as a church built in around the 1400s?

A.

Property owners near to an old church building are expected to fund repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Lightwater property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. The solicitor acting on your behalf will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Lightwater church properties include All Saints'.

Q.

As a result of the worrying amount of flooding in the UK in April 2012 I am anxious that environmental searches might not be sufficient?

A.

Flood searches conducted by your Lightwater solicitor should also include a far more detailed search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

If you are still worried you can approach a neighbour of the property.

Q.

Do many areas of conservation in Lightwater have the potential to affect us?

A.

With 9300 conservation areas in England, the streets and neighbourhoods in or near Lightwater include a number of areas of 'special architectural and historic interest' recognised as protected. The benefits of such restrictions include protection for trees and other flora, but they can make repairs more costly or time-consuming.

Q.

Which Lightwater mortgage lender panels are your solicitors members of?

A.

The Homeward Legal group can work alongside most lenders approved by the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Lightwater, including Bellamy Amanda, 14 Redditch, Bracknell, RG12 0TT, GDC Associates, 97 Eastmead, Farnborough, GU14 7SA, and Financial Solutions, Thornbury Cl, Crowthorne, RG45 6PE.
