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.

Which local authority looks after Needham Market?

A.

Needham Market is located in Mid Suffolk District Council, Council Offices, 131 High Street, Needham Market, Suffolk, IP6 8DL, phone: 01449 724 500

Q.

What does 'gazumping' mean?

A.

This arises when a property seller accepts the 1st buyer's offer, only to refuse it in favour of a greater offer. It could occur weeks into a transaction. Though being gazumped is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a chance. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a conveyancing solicitor early.

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.

May fees for the conveyancing have any additional charges?

A.

No. Homeward Legal's solicitors will not charge any additional costs to transact a property. Be aware that some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, which they will not be bound to.

Q.

Is a drainage search a fee or disbursement?

A.

Every disbursement and fee ought to be stated on your quote. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on to the buyer at cost.

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.

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.
