Regional travel and health service information

Christchurch is a relatively close hospital to Mudeford.

Q.

We need to find a cheap solicitor for selling a flat. because we are on a limited budget.

A.

Both high-street and online property lawyers offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional costs will be included in the small print. Fees should be reasonable and clear. The conveyancing quote should, in addition, define costs to be paid to third parties, such as the local authority, (disbursements).

Q.

Could my conveyancing quote include any additional fees?

A.

Regrettably, hidden fees are relatively common. Our solicitors will never charge any extra, hidden fees. You should be aware that some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, which could be totally different to your final invoice.

Q.

Do we need to get a home buyers survey for this property purchase?

A.

We advise that you book a RICS survey. A range concerns can negatively affect a property, which include cracks in walls.

Q.

Which of the mortgage lender panels in Mudeford are you on?

A.

Most lenders in Mudeford are on our solicitors' panels. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include J P Financial, 4 De Lisle Rd, Bournemouth, BH3 7NF, Sound Financial Services, 4 St. Winifreds

Rd, Bournemouth, BH2 6NZ, and Next Intelligence, Roddis House/Old Christchurch Rd, Bournemouth, BH1 1LG.

Q.

What length of time will conveyancing to buy a home generally take? I am buying in Mudeford.

A.

For most residential property, the length of time needed to transact residential property can vary. This is according to a range of issues affecting the property including if the lender requires specific searches. Our conveyancing solicitors ensure each client receives fast and efficient service.

Q.

Do you need a chancel search? We are buying a property close by a 1300s 'parson's close' in Mudeford.

A.

There are 15000 parishes throughout the country. Property owners within some of these may be required to pay for the repair of a local church. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out.

Q.

Our local agent has named the law firm who they generally use. Should I instruct this firm?

A.

Many agents have referral deals with solicitors whereby they refer work to them. These referrals need to be considered carefully, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

What kind of due diligence in respect to the potential risk of flooding at Dorset will my conveyancing solicitor in Mudeford give an account of?

A.

An important component in the conveyancing protocol of buying a property involves your conveyancer carrying out environmental searches that set out details in relation to Mudeford flood risk area. A more in-depth flood risk search (most likely a Landmark Database search) may possibly be advocated by a Mudeford conveyancer if the results of the enviro. search reveal a flood risk.
