Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? I need fixed rate Merriott conveyancing.

A.

Many law firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing, however additional costs are frequently hidden in the terms. Excited sellers and buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any disbursements ought to be listed on your conveyancing quote Any additional charges which are listed in your solicitor's terms ought to be reasonable and clear. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Do you recommend your solicitors to look after the conveyancing for auction properties in Merriott?

A.

We are used to working with bidders at auction. Often unusual buildings are bought at auction which necessitate deeper exploration before completion. Solicitors therefore strongly advocate purchasers to formally instruct a SRA regulated property conveyancing lawyer prior to the property auction date for a detailed report of the legal pack. Immediately following the auction day arrives, a property conveyancing lawyer needs to be able to concentrate on conclude the conveyancing process in less than the 28 day time frame, a requirement of standard auction conditions.

Q.

What does a Merriott property solicitor do if the house we are buying is situated in a conservation area and has conspicuous PVC windows added?

Your instructed property solicitor will carry out searches verify whether the property is inside a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have essential consent from the local council.

Q.

We are buying in Merriott on a new-build brownfield site. What should we do regarding titanium topsoil contamination?

A.

With this region's industrial history in parts of Merriott, soil contamination is impossible to completely avoid. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including hazardous gases and water contaminants such as industrial chemicals.

Q.

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

A.

There are a range of conservation areas in or near Merriott. A property solicitor will confirm potential liability for unauthorised works.

Q.

As a consequence of the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England I am wondering whether flood searches aren't sufficient?

A.

Conveyancing searches handled by your Merriott conveyancing solicitor should also include the more in depth search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

Perhaps you could speak to a local resident for some further local history.

Q.

I am intending to purchase a barn conversion in the parish of Congresbury. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

Your solicitor responsible for your move may suggest that a chancel search be ordered, regardless of the parish in which the house being purchased is located. Through some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on current owners of affected property, there is no way to be certain that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not be so in future.

Q.

Would you recommend that we get searches for chancel liability when I am buying in Merriott by land owned by the church?

A.

In Merriott, where land was once owned by a lay impropriators, new owners of that property may be obliged to cover the cost of upkeep of church property in the locality. Following a change in the law, interest over any affected land in Merriott must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Merriott churches include All Saints.
