Q.

I need to find the cheapest conveyancing quote. as we are on a budget.

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many solicitors claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, but additional costs may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement. This small print is often not read by buyers in a hurry. Any extra fees found in terms of engagement ought to be fair. They be applicable solely where your solicitor is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A quote should state applicable disbursements.

Q.

How many weeks can the conveyancing process generally take, according to your estimates? I already have an offer.

A.

On average, the time required to sell or purchase residential property is not wholly predictable. This is according to a number of legal considerations which may include if a third party is slow to respond. With our solicitors, the matter is undertaken as quickly as possible.

Q.

Rooftop Mortgages will be our lender - what will I need to check?

A.

Traditionally, most solicitors could act for the majority lenders. Over the last two years, some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating higher legal costs for property buyers. We can act on behalf of most UK mortgage lenders.

Q.

If Newton Abbot contaminated land is found in an environmental search, can the topsoil be cost-effectively remedied?

A.

In Newton Abbot, remediation is possible is some cases, but it can be costly. A local specialist e.g. Hares, Marsh La, Chudleigh, Newton Abbot, TQ130AF can provide further information.

Q.

Do we need a Newton Abbot house surveyor to inspect this property purchase?

A.

It is firmly advised that the majority of buyers arrange a property survey. There can be a wide range of defects which will impact a property, including settlement or dry rot, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

I am buying a period maisonette in a Newton Abbot conservation area, how does one locate data in relation to the standard of repair of the conservation area?

A.

Local Newton Abbot conservation areas are designated by the local authority (Teignbridge) who preside over conservation area concerns from public spaces to the inhibition of advertising hoardings. Following a campaign, English Heritage maintain records of the state of conservation areas along with the trend.

Q.

Flood risk searches may be standard procedure for home buyers but considering recent events such as the major flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England are they enough to determine enough about the risk of flooding in Newton Abbot?

A.
