Q.

How do I find low cost conveyancing in Penrith?

A.

Several firms claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra fees may be added into the terms of engagement. Excited sellers and buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Extra fees included in the solicitor's terms needs to be fair and clearly defined. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We are likely to be finally moving out of our period residence in Penrith to a new property in Moor Row what is the right point to choose a removal company?

A.

Most property lawyers tend to encourage house movers wait until exchange of contracts because generally an absolute home moving date wont have been confirmed. Try Lee D, 2 Lowther Terr, Penrith, CA11 7QP Call: 01768 865085 or Stewarts Removals, 33 Croft Av, Penrith, CA11 7RG Telephone: 01768 863118.

Q.

The property seller has fitted windows on the flat in Penrith which we think may defy local conservation area criteria

A.

The property lawyer is required to see whether your new home is inside a designated conservation area and whether any alterations have appropriate permissions from the Eden planning authority. In the event that no authority consents be in evidence, your solicitor will inform you of all options, which include obtaining an indemnity insurance policy or getting retrospective approval from Eden planning authority.

Q.

As a result of the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England we are anxious that environmental searches aren't exacting enough?

A.

Environmental searches handled by your property lawyer in Penrith should also include the more thorough flood search if the risk warrants it.

If you are anxious you might try to get in touch with a next door neighbour.

Q.

How is Penrith contaminated land investigated when purchasing a property?

A.

Penrith property could be contaminated by several human activities. Issues like local historic industrial processes and sand or clay quarries will be reported on in environmental search results. Contamination can be caused by Penrith waste sites, including Kirkby Thore Works, Cumbria, CA10 1XU.

Q.

For fast conveyancing on the purchase of a £420,000 property, what can we do to accelerate the process?

A.

As is often reported, instructing a proactive conveyancing solicitor is the key to a fast conveyancing transaction. There are several things you as the purchaser can also do to speed up the process, such as, calling or emailing the conveyancing solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays, responding to your conveyancing solicitor by phone, fax or email wherever possible and arranging your mortgage offer.

Q.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like bookcases?

A.

Generally speaking, fixtures are fixed to walls, floors or ceilings securely, whereas fixtures can be more easily removed. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

How much time will conveyancing to sell a house usually need, according to your estimates? The house being transacted is also in the area.

A.

The length of time required to transact residential property can vary. This is according to numerous considerations which can include whether the property is leasehold. With Homeward Legal, your sale or purchase is handled as fast as possible, without compromising on service.
