Q.

How do I get low cost conveyancing?

A.

Several law firms offer cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms which unwary buyers fail to check. Applicable disbursements should also be clearly stated on your quote Charges needs to be fair and reasonable and be applied only where the conveyancer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What amount of time will conveyancing legal work generally take? We have already found a buyer.

Q.

How will a Porthleven conveyancer advise me on the risk and history of possible flooding in the Porthleven area?

A.

A vital part of the conveyancing protocol of buying a property involves your conveyancer making an application for property environmental searches that set out specific information on the subject of Porthleven flood risk area. An inexpensive (around twenty pounds) and more in-depth dedicated flood risk search, such as the Homecheck search, may possibly be proposed by your Porthleven property lawyer if the results of the enviro. search show a flood risk.

Q.

Should we employ the solicitors firm referred by the agent?

A.

If you choose a solicitor referred through this route, you may have the advantage of the agent being able to exert pressure on your behalf. These referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as the agent may recommend whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

Is contaminated land in Porthleven a concern?

A.

A range of contaminants caused by human activities can lessen the desirability property in Porthleven, like limestone or gypsum quarrying. An environmental search can provide much more clarity.

Q.

Are there many buyers in Porthleven gazumped?

A.

Gazumping takes place when an offer is accepted, and then rejected, by the seller, in favour of another purchaser's offer. The risk of getting gazumped is present in any transaction. You should instruct your conveyancing solicitor as soon as you can to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.

Q.

Will I need to get a chancel search if I am purchasing in Porthleven by a parsonage?

A.

Owners of property neighbouring older church buildings must contribute towards the cost of repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. Some names or words such as 'vicarage' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Church properties in this area include St Bartholomew.
