Q.

How do I find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this issue catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional fees will be included in small print. Busy, stressed sellers and buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Extra fees should be reasonable and only be applied if the solicitor must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

We are buying on a Needham Market former industrial site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

Even where some contamination has occurred in Needham Market, risk levels are usually low. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Needham Market, including local authorities.

Q.

Property lawyers in Needham Market carry out varied conveyancing searches when instructed to act for a home purchaser, which actual ones?

A.

If applying for a mortgage the mortgage lender will expect at least these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search and Environment Search,, and possibly area-specific searches, which might include Planning.

Q.

We are buying a 1950s investment flat in the middle of a conservation area in Needham Market. How do I find data in relation to the state of repair?

A.

Conservation areas in Needham Market are set up by Mid Suffolk who are responsible for everything from public spaces to neglected buildings.

Following a campaign, English Heritage now maintain records about the condition of conservation areas in addition to the trend.

Q.

Conveyancing searches are based on past records and given recent events for instance the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall, are they comfort enough to advise us sufficient information about the risk of flooding in Needham Market?

A.

Flood risk searches conducted by the conveyancer in Needham Market will include a far more informative Landmark flood search if it is felt necessary.

If you are worried why not try to speak to a local resident.

Q.

Do I need a property survey for our house purchase?

A.

It is recommended that you order a house survey. Numerous defects can negatively affect a property. These can include ground movement.

Q.

How early is it appropriate to arrange a conveyancing solicitor in Needham Market?

A.

With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, the sooner you instruct a solicitor, the better. Some sources recommend postponing instruction until a chain is completed, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.

Q.

Do I need to instruct a conveyancing suggested by our estate agent?

A.

Agent referrals are a not uncommon path whereby buyers get a solicitor. These referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the law firm with the best reputation.
