Local information:

Poundbury's nearest station is Dorchester West and Poundbury's nearest airport is Bournemouth International Airport (28 miles).

Q.

Local Poundbury attractions

A.

Max Gate National Trust Winterborne Came St Peter Churches Conservation Trust and Whitcombe Church Churches Conservation Trust are in Poundbury.

The closest hospital for Poundbury is Dorset County Dorchester.

Q.

We need to find a cheap solicitor quote to sell a house. What should be watch out for?

A.

Many firms purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing. However extra costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Costs found in your solicitor's terms ought to be fair.

Q.

If I am purchasing in the parish of Fontmell Magna, should we get a chancel search?

A.

The conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search is taken out, whichever parish where the home being bought is found. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on new owners of a home where parish councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

I am looking to be finally moving from our detached building in Poundbury to a maisonette in Hamworthy . When to select a home removal company?

A.

The ideal way is to put off the removals company until after you and the other side has decided your moving date that takes

place once contracts are signed. If you are looking for a local company try Max Storage, Newton Hall/Dorchester Rd, Maiden Newton, Dorchester, DT2 0BD on 01300 320546.

Q.

When do I need to instruct a solicitor to handle our purchase?

A.

The straightforward answer is, the faster you instruct the better, as there are various tasks which may be performed straight away. Instructing a firm early can reduce any chance of the other side pulling out.

Q.

Regarding the groundwater flooding in Dorset I am wondering if flood searches might not be exacting enough?

A.

A competent Poundbury lawyer should always get additional informative conveyancing and environmental searches (Landmark database search) if the enviro searches flag up a significant risk the local Poundbury flood risk

You can speak to a close neighbour for that extra confidence.

Q.

Will my legal fees cover any hidden fees?

A.

No. Our solicitors will not charge any hidden charges whatsoever.

Q.

What environmental concerns will contaminate land in Poundbury, and are they checked for thoroughly?

A.

A wide range of contaminants may reduce the value of land, and factors such as nearby waste management facilities should be reported on during conveyancing searches.

Q.

We are buying in Poundbury with Co-operative Bank - what do we need to be aware of?

A.

Prior to recent changes, it was usually straightforward for solicitors to act for both a buyer and their lender. Recently, a number of lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, resulting in higher conveyancing costs for purchasers if a second lawyer is required by their lender. Homeward Legal, however, can act for the vast majority of mortgage lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay your lender's conveyancing fees.
