Q.

How do we get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Various solicitors offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional charges will be included in the solicitor's terms. Excited home owners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any extra costs found in terms and conditions should be fair and reasonable. Your quote should also state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.

Q.

Is a house survey a good idea when we are purchasing a home?

A.

It is firmly advised that purchasers instruct a home surveyor to carry out a survey when you intend to buy in New Milton. It is a fact that there are many issues that affect a property, including cracked roof tiles.

Q.

How can we verify if a property is in a designated conservation area?

A.

With over 8,000 conservation areas across the country, the regions in or near New Milton include several areas of historic or architectural significance designated as protected. You may wish to contact the local authority if you have specific questions, but your conveyancing lawyer will investigate this in detail during the conveyancing process.

Q.

How is New Milton contaminated land investigated?

A.

A range of contaminants caused by natural causes and human activities may impact residential property in New Milton, and factors like waste disposal sites should be considered as part of the appropriate search. Contamination in New Milton can be caused by local waste sites, such as Land / Premises At, Milford Road, Hampshire, SO41 8EZ.

Q.

We are purchasing a rectory in the parish of Widley. Will a chancel search be necessary?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search is ordered, regardless of the parish where the house being bought is located. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to impose chancel repairs on the owners of land subject to chancel liability, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not continue to be so.

Q.

I am buying a converted investment property in a designated conservation area in New Milton. Where can I find more details about the standard of upkeep?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, have conducted a survey and created a list about the state of conservation areas along with the trend. Conservation areas are specified by New Forest who are responsible for everything from paths to the prevention of street posts.

Q.

For our mortgage lender, we have chosen Britannia, is there anything we need to know?

A.

Buyers should be aware that some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. We, however, can act for many mortgage lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay an additional fee for your lender's solicitor.

Q.

Is nickel soil contamination likely in New Milton?

A.

Given the history of industry and agriculture in parts of New Milton, top-soil contamination is inescapable. Other sources of contaminated land include groundwater contamination and chlorine.
