Q.

How do we find the best conveyancing rates for a 242,000 property?

A.

This catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors promote theoretically cheap conveyancing. However additional charges will be included in the solicitor's terms. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Mersea Island?

A.

Mersea Island is located in Tendring District Council, Town Hall, Station Road, Clacton on Sea, Essex, CO15 1SE, contact: 01255 686 868

Q.

What type of local environmental searches in relation to the risk and history of local flooding in Essex will a lawyer in Mersea Island be able to apply for?

A.

An essential step in the conveyancing protocol of buying a property involves your conveyancing lawyer carrying out conveyancing searches that give you some details about the Mersea Island historical flood risk.

Q.

Is a house survey advisable when buying residential property?

Homeward Legal recommend that you book a RICS survey. There can be many defects that can negatively affect a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address. These include settlement or chimney defects.

Q.

How do I see if the Mersea Island conservation area is being neglected?

A.

Conservation areas are set up by the local authority (Tendring) who are responsible for everything from including things like neon signs, the colours of paint used and paths. English Heritage, a government body, administer records on the state of conservation areas in addition to the trend.

Q.

Capital Home Loans is going to be our mortgage lender, is there anything I need to know?

A.

Traditionally, most solicitors could act for the majority lenders. Some lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, which may result in increased legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal are able to act on behalf of many lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay any additional legal fees to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

Do you need to get searches for chancel liability? We are buying a house by a rectory manor in Mersea Island.

A.

There are over 15,000 ecclesiastical parishes throughout the UK. Owners of property within some of these may be required to contribute towards the repair of a local church. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Mersea Island Parochial Church Council enforce liability.

Q.

What factors will contaminate land in Mersea Island, and are they comprehensively investigated?

A.

Land can be contaminated by a broad range of natural and human-influenced issues, such as hazardous and regulated installations or waste disposal sites. An environmental search will give more information. Contamination can be caused by local landfill sites, including Keelars & Sunnymead Extension, Elmstead Road, Essex, CO7 9JY.
