Q.

I am looking for a cheap Okehampton solicitor to own a house. What are the risks?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional costs are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Additional fees which are listed in the terms should be fair. They be applied only where the solicitor must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements should also be clearly stated on a quote

Q.

Which Okehampton lenders do you work with?

A.

Homeward Legal work with many lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Okehampton, such as Mortgagefinders, 33 Dunsford Rd, Exeter, EX4 1LQ, Mortgage Advice Bureau (Exeter) Ltd, North Door/Broadwalk House/Southernhay West, Exeter, EX1 1TS, and Mortgage Matters Plus, Pottery Rd, Bovey Tracey, Newton Abbot, TQ139DS.

Q.

What can contaminate land in Okehampton. Will they be thoroughly investigated?

A.

A wide range of contaminants caused by factors caused by man and by nature may potentially impair land in Okehampton, like existing and proposed overhead electricity cables and pollution incidents. An environmental search will offer more detail. Land / Premises At, Exeter Road Ind Est, Devon, EX20 1UF may be one source of local contamination.

Q.

What type of environmental searches in connection with the risk and history of a flood at Devon will the property solicitor in Okehampton actually carry out?

A.

An important component in the conveyancing protocol involves a solicitor making an application for environmental searches that go into details in relation to Okehampton area flood risk.

Q.

Which actual property conveyancing searches should a Okehampton lawyer carry out for a Okehampton house?

A.

The routine legal procedure is to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search, Environmental, Tin Search and Clay Search as well as any less common searches such as Planning.

Q.

In respect of the major flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England I am thinking that flood risk searches might not be detailed enough?

A.

Conveyancing searches (environmental) conducted by your Okehampton solicitor will also include a far more specialist flood search if it is felt necessary.

It could be worth trying to also speak to a neighbour for some further local history or local Devon flood damage builder - try: Woods M A, Resthaven, Broadbury, Okehampton, EX20 4LF Tel: 01837 871282.

Q.

What can our conveyancing searches be?

A.

Searches range in cost, depending on the searches required by your lender. A conveyancing solicitor will order a bundle generally including a mining search and a chancel liability search.

Q.

How soon should we arrange a solicitor?

A.

If you use a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, instructing as soon as possible is wise. Some groups advocate holding off instruction until the offer is accepted, but you will then be at a serious disadvantage in the event of a contract race, or buyer eager to move quickly.
