How do I find fixed rate conveyancing?


Various firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing, but additional fees may be added into the terms and conditions. This small print is often not read by home owners in a hurry.


Will we need a property survey for this property purchase?


It is recommended that you book a house survey. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of concerns that will impact a property. These include settlement. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.


How long will the conveyancing process usually need, in your experience? If it matters, we are purchasing a house in Ottershaw.


The length of time needed to buy or sell a house varies. This is dependent on a number of issues which may affect the property, for example, when a third party is slow to respond. Our conveyancers work hard to ensure every sale is handled as fast as possible, without compromising on service.


Will we need to get a chancel liability search? I am purchasing a Ottershaw house on the same road as a 16th Century 'church furlong'.

As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Ottershaw which was once owned by a 'lay rectors' can be liable for maintenance of a local church. Terms used in a property's name, like 'priory', may indicate chancel liability. Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Ottershaw churches which may give rise to chancel liability include Christ Church.


What will conveyancing searches cost?


With a Homeward Legal solicitor, clients buying a property charged at most £249 for a standard search bundle. Additional searches your solicitor may recommend include a British waterways search.


We are buying in Ottershaw on a new development former industrial site. Is the soil likely to remain contaminated by waste minerals like rubidium?


Though the dangers are usually minor, if significant harm could be caused to people or protected species by the contamination, it is likely to be labelled contaminated land. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as industrial storage and groundwater contamination.


What will the council tax cost for a Sixties Band B apartment in Ottershaw?


Your appropriate band should almost always be detailed in the conveyancing report on title, and by the local council. The latest council tax charges for properties in Ottershaw are tabled online at the Runnymede council site. Currently on 27 October 2012 rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £993.00
  • Band B - £1,159.00
  • Band C - £1,324.00
  • Band D - £1,490.00
  • Band E - £1,821.00
  • Band F - £2,152.00
  • Band G - £2,483.00
  • Band H - £2,980.00


What can a Ottershaw property solicitor advise if the property is in a Runnymede planning authority conservation area that possibly has unsanctioned dormer windows added?


Runnymede local authority enquiries carried out by your solicitor during the legal process will determine if the Ottershaw property a conservation area and evidence of permission for alterations will be supplied.
