Q.

Halifax is our mortgage lender - what will we need to check?

Over the last two years, some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', which may result in increased conveyancing costs for house purchasers. Homeward Legal can act for the majority of UK mortgage lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay any additional legal fees to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

Please tell us why conveyancing requires weeks?

The conveyancing process will occasionally take more time even where there is no chain. Some delays are out of your solicitor's control.

What authority is under obligation for policing the condition of repair of the conservation areas in Linton?

A.

Conservation areas in Linton are specified by the local authority (South Cambridgeshire) who administer everything from including things like neglected buildings, coloured road surfaces and what can be demolished. English Heritage, a government body, now maintain a list in relation to the state of conservation areas along with the vulnerability of the area.

Q.

What do we need to know about 'fixtures and fittings'?

A.

There is not a legal definition of fixtures and fittings, resulting in considerable confusion once the buyer moves in and items are missing. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This can make the clarification of any difference of opinion so important.

Q.

What local factors can contaminate land in Linton?

Numerous of contaminants caused by naturally-occurring factors could lessen the value of property in Linton, and an environmental search should reveal if a specific property is impacted by contaminants in the area like waste treatment sites in the area.
