Q.

We are trying to find a solicitors firm that offers cheap conveyancing. Can you assist?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this issue catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers promote cheap conveyancing. However additional charges are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Any disbursements must also be stated on a Middleton conveyancing quote. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

A.

With the history of industry in parts of Middleton, soil contamination is impossible to completely avoid. Also considering issues such as food-processing waste and water contaminants such as solvents, contaminants affecting Middleton property will be factored into an environmental search.

If buying and applying for a mortgage a mortgage lender insist that specific searches, including the following for Middleton: Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search, as well as any area-specific searches, like a Planning and local information.

Q.

Which issues are key to get fast conveyancing?

A.

As is often argued, instructing a proactive, diligent solicitor is the key to faster conveyancing. There are a range of things you can do, such as, calling or emailing your solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays, quickly answering your solicitor's questions (by email if possible) and confirming your mortgage offer.

Q.

My agent has suggested a firm of solicitors which they often use. Should I use them?

A.

It is commonplace for agents in Nuneaton to recommend one or more conveyancing firms. However, if they are paid a referral fee, the agent may prefer to suggest the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

As a consequence of the serious flooding in Leeds and across Yorkshire we are wondering whether flood searches may not be sufficient?

A.

Environmental searches conducted by a Middleton conveyancing solicitor will also include a more in depth search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

Perhaps you could converse with a future neighbour for additional extra local information.

Q.

I am purchasing a property in Middleton. Are there many conservation areas in the area?

A.

Locales deemed to be of architectural or historic interest, such as stretches of canals, will be designated as conservation areas. Middleton itself is named as a conservation area. These restrictions may impose liability on a buyer for unauthorised alterations made by previous owners, but the benefits include protection for parks and green spaces. Your conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise further.
