Q.

How do we find the best rates for conveyancing in Maldon for a £694,000 home?

A.

Both high-street and online firms promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional costs are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Extra fees which are listed in terms and conditions should be reasonable and clear.

Q.

What sort of due diligence in respect to the risk and history of flooding in Essex will my Maldon property solicitor report on?

A.

An essential part of the legal process involves your conveyancing lawyer making an application for environmental searches that give details about the potential risk of flooding in Maldon.

Q.

There is a lot of free information about DIY conveyancing when buying and selling a house. Is it shrewd to take care of the conveyancing myself on our own?

A.

Theoretically there is no reason at all why you cannot handle the majority of the conveyancing on your own. That said, a conveyancer in Maldon is familiar with a large array of roles from e.g. understanding the practical side of the process and interpreting planning contraventions some of which require training.

Q.

How do I go about establish if the Maldon conservation area is not being properly maintained?

A.

Local Maldon conservation areas are created by the local authority (Maldon) who oversee conservation area concerns from including things like billboards,

extensions and upkeep of paths. Following a campaign, English Heritage now maintain records about the state of repair of conservation areas in England in addition to the trend.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Maldon?

A.

Maldon is located in Maldon District Council, Princes Road, Maldon, Essex, CM9 5DL, phone: 01621 854 477

Q.

For fast conveyancing to buy a £623,000 property, how could we accelerate the conveyancing process?

A.

Crucial to a fast transaction is to instruct a proactive and experienced property lawyer. There are, however, a range of things you, as the purchaser, can also do. These include:

  • answering any queries raised by your property lawyer as soon as possible
  • organising your finances
  • pushing the property lawyer to begin enquiries as soon as possible

Q.

Do I need searches for chancel liability if we are buying by a 12th Century rectory manor in Maldon?

A.

The outcome of a court case between a parish council and owners of neighbouring farmland liable for church repairs reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must cover the cost of church repairs. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Church of England properties in this area include All Saints, Heybridge Basin St George, Heybridge St Andrew and St Mary's Church.

Q.

In a few weeks I am intending to move from our semi detached building near Maldon into a flat in Kelvedon . What is the optimum stage to select a house removal firm?

A.

Our recommendation is to hold off arranging the removals until after both sides have agreed an absolute moving date that occurs once contracts have exchanged. Local firms include Removals In Chelmford Ltd, 18 Halston Pl, Maldon, CM9 6XW on 01621 842589.
