Q.

We need a firm that offers cheap conveyancing in Oundle. What do we need to consider?

A.

Many property lawyers purport to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional charges are often hiding in the terms. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

How soon should you instruct a solicitor?

A.

With few exceptions, instructing as early as possible is better. The legal work can then start straight away. Early instruction of a conveyancing solicitor to act on your Oundle sale or purchase can reduce the likelihood of the other side pulling out.

Q.

How many weeks does the legal work to buy a property require?

A.

Generally speaking, the time required to buy or sell a residence is not wholly predictable, influenced by several issues which may affect the property. Our conveyancing solicitors work hard to ensure each client receives communicative and proactive service, resulting in the fastest possible outcome.

Q.

Flood searches are standard procedure for home buyers but in light of recent events such as the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands are they still appropriate to check sufficient information about the Oundle flood risk area?

A qualified conveyancing solicitor in Oundle should get additional flood searches if the initial conveyancing searches determine a significant risk of flooding in Oundle

People sometimes try to speak to a neighbour to get further information if still concerned.

Q.

I plan to purchase a barn conversion in the parish of Easton by Stanford. Will a chancel search be needed?

A.

Your solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search, whichever parish where the house being bought is located. Although some parish councils have opted to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not be so in future. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Should the fixtures and fittings form list door handles?

A.

Mainly, fixtures are fixed items, such as bathroom suites to walls and other surfaces and fixtures are easier to detach or remove. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This can make the completion of a fixtures and fitting form necessary.

Q.

The estate agent has put forward the lawyer. Will it be cheaper to instruct them?

A.

An agent in Bamber Bridge will suggest a conveyancing solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, some agents may 'recommend' whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

If you are buying a house close by rectory grounds in Oundle, will you need to get a chancel search?

A.

There are thousands of parishes in England and Wales. Owners of property within some of these may be required to fund the repair of a local church. A chancel search addresses if such a liability exists. Churches in the area include St Peter's Church.
