Q.

How do we find a discount conveyancing estimate?

A.

Various conveyancers purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs will be included in the solicitor's terms that buyers often do not check. Costs found in the terms should be fair. Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.

Q.

As a consequence of the fact that 2 8m people are at risk from surface flooding we are worried that flood risk searches may not be detailed enough?

A.

Conveyancing and environmental searches carried out by the solicitor in Petersfield will also include a far more in depth search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are still anxious you can always call a neighbour or local resident.

Q.

Do you have fast solicitors that handle auction conveyancing in Petersfield?

A.

Our residential property lawyers frequently work for bidders at auction. Conveyancers often inform buyers to formally instruct a SRA regulated property lawyer well in advance of the auction day so there is time for a review of the documents.

Subsequently, immediately after the auction day arrives, a lawyer is prepared for complete the purchase legal work within 4 weeks as typically required by the terms and conditions of sale.

Q.

The local agent has referred a lawyer whom they usually use. Will it be cheaper to instruct them?

A.

Estate agent recommendations are a common way for home buyers to find a solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, the agent may recommend the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

I am interested in purchasing a house in Petersfield. Are there many conservation areas in the area?

A.

With over eight thousand conservation areas in England, the areas near or within Petersfield will include several areas of architectural merit designated as protected. Your solicitor will be able to offer more information.

Q.

Is soil in Petersfield contaminated by nickel (Ni)?

A.

Petersfield and the surrounding region has a legacy of chemical contamination. Also considering issues such as groundwater contamination and perchlorate, contaminants affecting Petersfield property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if I am intending to purchase in the parish of Basingstoke?

A.

Regardless of the Petersfield parish in which you are buying, the solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is taken out. Although some Parochial Church Councils have opted to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish which has not imposed liability will not be so in future, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

What can a Petersfield conveyancing lawyer do if the property I want to buy is situated in a registered conservation area and has unbecoming new windows installed?

A.

A property solicitor will carry out searches establish if the property is affected by a conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have appropriate permissions from the local council.
