A right of way on the property I’m buying is redundant, but how do I get it removed from the deeds and registry?
A right of way through the grounds of a property is probably an inheritance before other building in the vicinity occurred that has since made the passage through redundant.
But, while having the right of way registered with the deeds means that feasibly someone could insist that they use it (as their public right), but, if they can’t access where the right of way originally led, it makes it a pointless activity.
It’s so unlikely that anyone will want to do this that you have to weigh up the cost of the legal process to get the right of way officially removed against not proceeding. However, if you are at all worried, talk to your solicitor so that it can be investigated further as part of the conveyancing, at which point they can guide you on the appropriate action and the associated costs (this will be in addition to the standard fees for the conveyancing and your solicitor will advise of this additional cost).
Homeward Legal's solicitors provide transparent quotes, detailing what is included in the fees and disbursements and will help with estimates for additional legal work. So, now is the best time to get your conveyancing under way on 0800 038 6699.
What factors will contaminate land in Mold, and should they be an issue?
Mold property would be contaminated by several environmental concerns, like shallow mining or masts or pylons. An environmental search can provide much more clarity. Brookhill Landfill Site, Brookhill Way, Flintshire, CH7 3PL is a source of potential local contamination in Mold.
If I am buying near Mold, in the parish of Newmarket, do we need a chancel search?
The conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils have taken the decision to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, there is no way to be certain that a parish which has not imposed liability will continue to be unaffected.
How early is it appropriate to get a solicitor to act on our purchase?
If you use a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the sooner you instruct a firm, the better. Instructing your solicitor earlier for a purchase means that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found.
We are going to be finally moving out of our period residence on the outskirts of Mold into a newer home in Holywell at what point to appoint a house removal firm?
Our recommendation is to avoid instructing removals until the point where all parties have agreed the final home moving date that as a rule takes place once contracts have exchanged. Try Millington H T, 1 Victoria Ter, Mold, CH7 1LL on 01352 755084.
What’s the difference between exchange of contracts and completion?
When you exchange contracts, this means that you are agreeing to all the terms drawn up within the contract made between you on one side of the transaction, and the opposite party on the other side. It is from this point that you are legally obliged to go through with the transaction (unless you want to be subject to financial and/or legal penalties).
The completion of contracts is the point where you officially take over ownership of the property, receive the keys and can move in. All monies are transferred between the various parties and the conveyancing solicitor contacts the Land Registry to register the change of ownership to you.

If I want to build an extension or do other works once I move in, can I get a builder to visit to give me a quote?
There is nothing stopping you trying to organise this, so long as you set a date and time that’s acceptable to the vendor (or via their estate agent if they are unable to be there) and try to establish how long the process will take, so that this can be booked in.
This becomes particularly critical following a surveyor’s inspection where remedial works are identified and recommended. You can use the quote from the builder as a renegotiation tool on the asking price, if the work required is going to be particularly costly. If you decide to go down this route, it must be done before exchange of contracts (where you’re committing to the sale price) and you should inform your solicitor if you’ve had private discussions and agreements with the vendor over price for inclusion in the terms of the contract.
