Q.

How do we get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Several firms advertise so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However extra fees may be added into the terms of engagement. Any disbursements must also be stated on a Purton conveyancing quote. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

Of the major Purton lenders, who is on your panel?

A.

We have solicitors who have experience working with the majority of lenders assisting Purton homebuyers. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Purton include Only Mortgages, 23 Restrop Rd, Purton, Swindon, SN5 4BP, C W S Mortgage Services, 14 Southwold Cl, Swindon, SN25 2BD, and Mansfield Begbie Associates Ltd, Packhorse Corner/Packhorse, Purton, Swindon, SN5 4HU. The solicitor handling your conveyancing transaction will be able to state specific lenders' requirements.

Q.

Property environmental searches are fine but when one considers recent flooding e g the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England are they still appropriate to advise me sufficient information about the changing Purton flood risk area?

A.

Environmental searches carried out by a Purton lawyer should also include a more rigorous Landmark flood search if the risk warrants it.

Perhaps you could also contact a local resident for some more comfort.

Q.

Will you need to get a chancel liability search? I am purchasing in Purton.

Owners of property near to church property in the locality may be required to fund repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Following the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. A solicitor will be able to advise further. Churches in Purton where a chancel search may be appropriate include St John and St Mary.

Q.

I am buying a converted house in a designated conservation areas. How does one locate information concerning the standard of upkeep?

A.

Conservation areas are created by the local authority (Swindon) who preside over everything from what can be developed to poorly maintained public spaces. English Heritage now maintain a detailed list about the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas as well as the exposure to the area falling into disrepair.

Q.

The estate agent has suggested a law firm which they often use. Will it be cheaper to use this solicitor?

A.

It is common practice for estate agents to recommend one or more conveyancing firms, however, these referrals should be thoroughly considered, as there is a risk that an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

In the next few we are expecting to be moving from our detached building near Purton into a bigger home in Melksham at what point to choose a removal company?

A.

Your solicitor would tend to advocate that home sellers delay arranging removals until the contracts have exchanged as prior to this usually a moving date will not have been confirmed. For a local Wiltshire company Abbeymead, 37 Stone La, Lydiard Millicent, Swindon, SN5 3LD Phone: 01793 771199 or Swindon Removal Services, Stone House Farm/37 Stone La, Lydiard Millicent, Swindon, SN5 3LD Tel: 01793 771010.

Q.

Purton solicitors apply for some searches when they are instructed by a home purchaser, which actual searches?

A.

If you are getting a mortgage a mortgage lender mandates at least specific searches, including the following for Purton: Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environment Search, and perhaps less common searches for example Land charges full Search.
